Cheers to a Sneak Peek of Half Full Stamp Set!

Cheers to a Sneak Peek of Half Full Stamp Set!

If you are a font “maven” like me, you’ll love the new Half Full stamp set.  I love the wine images – so humorous and pretty all year but offer especially sassy fun for fall and Christmas!  Half Full stamp set will be available when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog begins Sept. 1.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The Half Full tag was stamped with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock and snipped with my Paper Snips.

  • I stamped the grapes on a separate piece of Very Vanilla card tock, snipped them with my Paper Snips and colored using Blender Pens dipped in Fresh Fig and Old Olive ink.
  • Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (you gotta have them) prop up the grapes.

  • The flagged ends of the Fresh Fig, Old Olive and striped pattern (Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, available Sept. 1) were cropped in a snap with the Stampin’ Up! Triple Banner Punch.  Watch this Stampin’ Up! video sneak peek of ALL the new holiday catalog paper here.

  • The leaves were stamped with images from Painted Harvest Stamp Set and cropped with the Leaf Punch (available Sept. 1).  For softness, I tucked vellum leaves behind.

Pretty Petal Garden Mini Treat Bags

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies Petal Garden - Mary Fish StampinUp

On Monday’s post I shared a Mini Treat Bag using new products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (starts Sept. 1).  Today’s post focuses on the pretty Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack currently available in the annual catalog.  It instantly brings these treat bags to life.  They are for the same rose-themed party I made the Ferrero Rocher roses for on yesterday’s post!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • When I’m using Designer Series Paper, I like to use my Designer Series Paper Coordinating Color Chart to grab coordinating Stampin’ Up! card stock, stamps, embellishments and more.  
  • Print and keep handy.  Here’s my FREE Designer Series Paper Color Chart with all the current designer series paper (Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog).  For those of you with lots of retired paper, check out this chart with most of the Stampin’ Up! designer series paper and colors listed from 2008 to now.

  • Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack colors include Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White.
  • It just fits!  The 6 x 6 size of the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack works with the larger of the two Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  You’ll need a second sheet (but won’t use all) for the smaller die that fits in the back.

  • Must -Have!  Tear & Tape Adhesive is your “go to” when putting together envelopes and 3-D items.
  • Yummy Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Ribbon is the perfect way to wrap up the design.  I will be tucking in receipts for donations I made (in lieu of gifts) to our local animal shelter.  
  • My inspiration for this layout is from the uber talented Shannon Jaramillo, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community.  You can visit her blog and see more of her pretty creations here.

In addition, the bundle includes the bright and fun-filled Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.  The paper contains images that can be cut using the Birthday Friends Framelits Die.  I love it and listed this bundle on My Favorite Things from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog here.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Patterns from Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper are the foundation of the card!
  • Measure it!  The A2 card base measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The next patterned panel is 3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ and the last patterned panel measures 3″ x 2 1/2″.  The mats on each of these panels are cut 1/8″ larger.

  • Crisp and dark!  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.
  • The birthday cake is cropped with a framelit die directly from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Watch my WOW! video here to see a demonstration on using the framelits with the designer series paper.

  • Take the party inside!  Add some fun to the interior of the card with another sentiment from the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set.  There’s an adorable little present, also cropped from Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.
  • A strip of Designer Series Paper on the inside as well as on the envelope is a great way to use some of those scraps from the project while creating a totally custom project.
