It’s that time when I take on the task of deciding my 10 favorite stamp sets and 5 favorite tools in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. I look for products that are versatile, on-trend and fun to use!
1. You Plus Me Stamp Set (p. 5). In the mood for love? The images look divine with the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. Save 15% when you purchase You Plus Me Stamp Set and Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack as a bundle.
2. Balloon Bash (p. 11). Party on with plenty of fanfare and bling! Dress these stamp images up with Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper and Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim.
3. Cheerful Critters (p. 14).
For a touch of whimsy that pleases young and old, check out Cheerful Critters Stamp Set. These guys allow you to choose your sentiment and the images are so fun to color with Blendabilities Markers. Watch my video HERE!
4. Painted Petals stamp set (p. 19).
Simply beautiful and luscious for layering! Painted Petals stamp set coordinates with Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and Painted Blooms Cotton Twine. Watch this Stampin’ Up! video HERE!
5. Sheltering Tree (p. 22). Change each season and show off the fabulous font and sentiments. This set is in photopolymer (clear), my favorite for easy placement!
6. Big on You (p. 24). Big and bold sentiments are a hot trend and this stamp set evolves into a quick card a snap!
7. Crazy About You (p. 31). “Crazy about You!” Think of all the sentiment possibilities this enormous collection of sentiments offers. The flower images coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! flower medallion punch, 1 3/4 scallop circle punch. Save 15% when you bundle with the Hello You Thinlits Dies.
8. B.Y.O.P. (p. 33). Let?s face it. When giving gift cards, everyone is happy (and no returns hassles). B.Y.O.P. (?buy your own present?), is a charming way to deliver a gift card with a dash of panache.
9. Adventure Awaits stamp set (p. 41). Where the boys are! This set coordinates with Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (very unique and trendy). Perfect for Father’s Day! Save 15% when you purchase Adventure Awaits and Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack as a bundle.
10. Sophisticated Serifs Photopolymer (p. 44). Before you say ?whoa, Nellie? on the $45.95 price tag (remember it?s 65 stamps), think about the possibilities that will make this photopolymer (clear for easy placement) alphabet stamp set a tremendous value. Mix and match two sizes of letters to create words, whip up a stash of monogrammed note cards for quick thank yous or produce custom note card gift sets.
