Fun to create with

Do you ever find a stamp set or set of products that are just fun to create with?  Well I think the Stampin’ Up! catalog has such a set.  I really don’t NEED this set for anything in particular but every time I go through the catalog I am drawn to this suite of products.  At first I resisted.  I started with just buying the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.  Then I bought the coordinating Baker’s Twine.  Then I decided to get the Washi Tape.  I was resisting getting the stamp set because I really didn’t need it.  But darn it.  I gave in.  The whole suite is just fun and makes me happy.  I bet that was the plan all along!!

Here is the first card I made with the stamp set inspired by a swap card I received.


On my card I used Sahara Sand, Emerald Envy, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.  I used the Basic Black Baker’s Twine on the card.  The Twines shown with the suite in the catalog are the Flirty Flamingo and the Crushed Curry and Basic Black solid twines.

The bottom white piece is stamped – dino in Emerald Envy, sold spots in Sahara Sand, open spots are Basic Black.  This is really just random stamping to fill up the white strip.  I attached at the bottom of the Emerald Envy layer and the patterened paper on the top and then add the Basic Black strip to cover the seam.  Tie the twine around and add to the Sahara Sand card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the Hello There in Emerald Envy on Whisper White card stock and punch it out with the 1-3/4″ Circle punch.  The image is a bit wonky so its not an even fit but it works!

Cute and Fun – if that’s what you want this suite is for you.
