I am so glad that I took yesterday as a day to PLAY rather than work with my Stampin’ Up! toys. I had no commitments to meet, so I could just fuss around with my stamps and papers and accessories and figure out some designs. I feel so relaxed and I’m ready to spend some time this weekend doing some more in the way of challenging my creativity.
While I had the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper and the Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware still out on the craft table, I decided I’d pull out another new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2009 Spring/Summer Catalog and use the same materials. The stamp set I used this time was a new one called Beautiful Borders. There are two border stamps (wide enough to overlap the edges of a 5-1/2" wide card) and FOUR word stamps. What a versatile set!! I’ll try to make some more this weekend just to show off that versatility.
Besides the DSP and the Hodgepodge Hardware, this set uses the new Stampin’ Up! Eyelet Border punch. I just love how the color behind the top piece of paper/card stock shows right through the eyelet patterns. I finished this card off with the 1" Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon. Simple design, but fun to make!
I’ll be making this card as part of my stamp club in February. If you’d like to join us for the club, just let me know and I’ll make a kit for you, too! We’ll be making a Valentine Card using the Love You Much bundle (just 2 more days to order that at a discount!!!) and a note pad cover using the new Tea Party Designer Series Paper. For those who are not a part of the Stamp Club, the kits are just $10–and they’re FREE is you order $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! products during the club meeting.
Oooooh!!! And it will be held during Sale-A-Bration 2009!! You get more FREE STUFF during SAB! Call (808.854.6145) or e-mail me if you’d like to join us! Check out my calendar for the dates.
