Short & Sweet

Published by under cards,specials | Oct 19 2008

A few days ago I wrote about the great promotion that’s running this month to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 20th birthday. Today I’ve been making some cards with another of the sets that are 20% off with any $20 order: Short & Sweet (p118 Idea Book & Catalogue).

I love how the stamps in this set are the perfect size for a tag or small gift card, but on a full size card they also complement other stamps beautifully. Perfect for when you want a happy-looking, casual sentiment.

If this set is still on your wish list, don’t forget you’ve only got until the end of October to get it at the discounted price.

This last card features an acetate window with ‘best wishes’ stamped in Jet Black Staz-On, although it’s a bit hard to see in the photo. First I punched out the flower window from the base card (3″x3″) with Stampin’ Up!’s 5-Petal Flower Punch, and did the same for the square of Fall Flowers Designer Series paper. After stamping the sentiment on the acetate, it was sandwiched between the base card and decorated paper.  This was lots of fun and I plan an making more!

I just had to get the 5-Petal Flower Punch after seeing Juliana’s sheep here. Oh how cute! I’m trying to be good with my purchases and not buy anything unless I can find five different uses for it, and that was the last one I needed. 🙂

Hope you’re having a great weekend –
