Day three of Share the Fun Catalog Stroll
Can we say “obsessed”!!!! That is how I feel about the stamp set “Remarkable You”. I was not necessary overwhelmed with this set when I first strolled through the catalog. But, all it took was for me to use it one time and my feeling changed completely. I am truly obsessed with this stamp set. I can not get enough of it. Can I say it any other way. This is a must have for sure!!!!!
The simple sketches are strong enough to stand on their own. Yet, they pair very will with just about any sentiment. The images are perfect for water-coloring or just simple coloring with your Stampin’ write Markers.
I really, really want to CASE this card. The stamp set is “Awesomely Artistic” It’s it lovely? It’s it pretty? This set will be so very verstial with all the different images you get. The dragon fly has such great detail. I love the dots that will make it easy to add splashes of color to any background.
Background stamps can be overlooked very easily. Stampin’ Up! has a lot of great background stamps. I have picked two to share with you today. When you look at the background stamps in the catalog remember you are getting a lot of bang for you buck. Also, they are images that you will be using over and over on all sorts of different projects.
“Brushstrokes” background stamp is on my must have wish list. It will be perfect for making bold watercolor like images with out actually having to watercolor anything.
“Definitely Dahlia” was on my original order from this catalog. It is a large dahlia that measures 4 3/8 by 4 18. I am inching to make something using this large dahlia. I am drown to the detail of this stamp and how it almost appears to be hand painted with watercolors.
The “celebrate” is one of the new embellishments Stampin’ Up! is offering this year. They are great little wood pieces. “Expressions Natural Elements” are 3D wood veneer words. The words are Congrats, Thanks, and celebrate. They defiantly add a lot of pizzazz to any card or project.
Stampin’ Up! really knocked it out of the ball park with their new Designer Series Paper. I love the all!!!! Truly I do 🙂 Each set has paper that makes me smile. So, I am going to share just a few with you. First up is “Bohemian Designer Series Paper”
I have used this paper for many backgrounds on cards. The fabulous designs are very modern. The color combinations are spot on to make any projects shine. This paper coordinates with Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla. If you love the modern feel of this paper then check out “Bohemian Borders” Stampin’ Up! truly makes it easy to coordinate stamps, paper, and color. This is one of the many reasons I LOVE Stampin’ Up! so much.
“English Garden Designer Series Paper” is so very lovely. It just completely makes me smile and wish I had a garden that looked like this paper. This paper coordinates with Blushing Bride, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Whisper White. And if you are like me and are in love with the watercolor look of this paper don’t forget to check out the stamp set “Garden in Bloom”. These two are a perfect match for each other!!!!
“Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper” is soft and beautiful. I am overwhelmed by how gorgeous this paper is. It features three colors Basic Black, Sahara Sand, and Very Vanilla. I think that it is named perfectly. Because this paper is truly “Timeless Elegance” For even more elegance checkout “Timeless Love” stamp set.
Stampin’ Up! has done a wonderful thing for us this year. They are selling packs of Paper that coordinate with each set of Designer Series Paper and Designer Series Paper Stacks. The exceptions being Color Me Irresistible Specialty Paper and Typeset Specialty Designer Paper. This is another way Stampin’ Up! is making it easy to match products with each other. So, don’t forget to order your “Cardstock Pack” along with your Designer Series Paper
