Grateful for Stamping Inspiration …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Have you ever looked at a stamp set in the catalog and thought, that’s pretty … but you just keep moving on? Well … that has happened to me too. I’m sure we’ve all done that. THEN we see a beautiful card created with that stamp set!

Well that is exactly how I felt about the “For All Things” stamp set …

See … pretty, right?! But it just didn’t spark the creativity fire in me. Then I saw the card in the new catalog (turn to page 87) It is beautiful!  I just love this card …

The neutral color scheme and the simplicity of the card is striking! The new “Brick Wall” embossing folder makes the leaves pop … literally and figuratively.  My guess is that the leaves were cut by hand, but well worth the effort.

I love how they highlighted the word “grateful” and wrapped a bit of bakers twine within the leaves. Then to add the “cherry on top” … they added the little flowers from the “Itty Bitty Accents” punch pack.

My “Brick Wall” embossing folder is on the way, and now … I’ll have to add the “For All Things” stamp set to my wish list. Did you know … the Brick Wall folder is bigger than most? It is 4-1/2″ x 6-3/8″

Two thumbs up for Stampin’ Up! creative team for all the great samples in the new catalog. I’m ready to stamp! I’ll be posting some upcoming stamping events before the end of month.

Thank you for stopping by ~

Have yourself a fabulous day!
