Tulip Stampin' Up! Catalog Favorites by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty Blog
MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY CATALOG STAMP SETS

1.  Peaceful Pines (p. 17) – Becomes your little “holiday tree factory,” especially when purchased as a bundle (save 15%) with the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.  Check out the tree sample below to see all of the different capabilities for the dies.  Watch this Peaceful Pines Stampin’ Up! Video.

2.  Dove of Peace (p. 20) – The beauty of this stamp set isn’t just in the incredible desire to color it (watercoloring or markers).  It’s the ability to use the dove beyond the Christmas season.  Consider wedding, anniversary or sympathy cards.  You can (carefully) cut this single stamp to separate the sentiment from the dove.

Falling for Leaflets Framelits Dies

stampin up lighthearted leaves mary fish stampin pretty demonstrator blog emvelope punch board

A simple trio of leaves surround this stamped bit of poetry by Emily Brontë.  Any Wuthering Heights fans among my paper crafting friends?  I remember being thoroughly absorbed reading Brontë’s Wuthering Heights as a sophomore in high school–definitely a big part of what inspired me to be an English major in college!  Love having this stamp to play with!

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

A few of my leaves blew off course.  However, the foundation of my design was this week’s Mojo Monday Tall & Skinny Sketch Challenge (MOJO413).

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • My tall & skinny card base measures 6″ x 3 1/2″.

  • The modern leaves were quick and easy to produce using Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (available Sept. 1) and a coordinating die from Leaflets Framelits Dies.  Perfect for fall projects and beyond.
