Before I get to my post, I wanted to make sure you have the date for my upcoming Buy One Get One Free Catalog Kick Off Extravaganza coming up on June 13th. Details will be sent soon in an email if you are on my list. If not, just click here and sign up to be on the list.
Now–On to the REAL reason you are here:
Welcome to the first unofficial weekend of summer! You would think I would show you a summer card today, right? Well, I am full of surprizes and one of them that is that I DON”T have a summer card to show you. There will be plenty of those to come over the next few months….but NOT today!
Stampin’ Up! has been offering a new photopolymer stamp set each month. Because these stamp sets aren’t in a catalog, they can be overlooked. I have always been a sucker for the underdog… and it is no different with stamp sets. So–without further ado, I present a remarkable overlooked but -oh-so worth it stamp set, Lovely Amazing You!
There are such great greetings in this set—seriously–“Love you more than chocolate” and “You make my heart happy”! You know there are people in your life like this. Make them a card!
This week, I was messing around with some stamp challenges (On a side note, do you ever check out the challenges–because you are READY for a challenge….and then say, “No, I am NOT making THAT!”—even though that is precisely the purpose of the “challenge”–to stretch yourself beyond what seems comfortable ?? I do that ALL the time—-So what I really end up doing is not, in fact, a ” challenge” but rather a “suggestion that I am willing to listen to”!). I found one that “spoke” to me and knew just what I was going to do. Here is the Paper Players Challenge:
I pulled out my Lovely Amazing You set and went to work. I wanted the look of soft pink feathers falling all over the place. When I was done, it resembled a 10 year old’s sleepover gone bad! That ended up in the trash… but I didn’t give up! After all, this was a “challenge” ! I switched out the colors to the next “girly-est” colors known and went with a purple theme. I LOVE Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, and Rich Razzleberry together. Mix in a little Dazzling Diamonds and voila–you have girly!
Don’t overlook this set—You will be sorry! It won’t be around forever and it is only $14.95!!!! Check it out here.
Wishing you a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Go stamp something!
