The New Kids on the Block

Stampin up greeting card kids

Remember my "Gotta Have It" post from last week?  The blog candy drawing is over and the goodies are on their way to the winner.  However, it's time to put my Top 10 favorite products from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog into action and share some inspiration. 

Let's kick things off with one of my favorite stamp sets:  Greeting Card Kids.  It's vintage holiday with a nostalgic vibe.  The images are amazing solo or water colored to story book perfection.

  • Stampin up punch potpourri The sweet sentiment is from a new set called A Word for You.  It's just the right size for a sentiment or grab your markers and isolate the "happy birthday" font  for the front and tuck "with a cherry on top!" inside.  All the stamps in the set can multi-task this way!
  • I flicked the edges of my focal point on a Cherry Cobbler ink pad.  This creates a touch of dimension and adds to the vintage feel. 
  • Crumb Cake (the color formerly known as Kraft–any Prince fans?) works beautifully with almost any color you can pair it with. 
  • I used Crumb Cake Ink to dress up the envelope flap with the Punch Potpourri stamp set.  The same set was used (Cherry Cobbler Ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock) for the card background.
