Happy Saturday! Today I’m hopping with my Stamping with Friends group and featuring the new Gift of Giving stamp set from the new Sept-Dec mini catalog. We were to create a project using projects from the new mini catalog, so I immediately picked up this new stamp set. It was the very first on my wish list when I saw the new book…after all, it has a mug, and I love all-things coffee! Be sure to check out the Roll Call at the bottom of this post so you can carry through and see the other creations of my talented stamping friends!
Here’s my card:
In addition to the Gift of Giving stamp set, this project also features two other new products — both that are a little bit hidden in the catalog: the “perfect for the season” DSP called A Walk in the Forest, and the Deckled Circles Dies. (You can see all supplies used at the bottom of this post).
I say these products are “hidden” because they are tucked in corners of the new booklet. Stampin’ Up catalogs are not only product sales tools, they are books for inspiration (hence why I’m always “CASE-ing the catalog, like today!) They have to cram so much into these books, so sometimes products aren’t highlighted so prominently. This happens — so be sure to check the index in the back of the book too as sometimes that helps you find these hidden gems. Let’s look at all of these products:
The Deckled Circles are a little pricey – $37 – but WOW, they are worth it. Again the catalog does not do these justice. The largest circle measures 5 3/4 in diameter and is HUGE! These are a great addition to your stamp collection.
Also, something special about A Walk in the Forest DSP? $3 from each sale of this paper pack will be donated by Stampin’ Up! to support organizations dedicated to spreading cheer and providing support to those in need. This is part of SU’s “Making a Difference” program.
My card was inspired by a card on that page of the mini catalog:
If you saw my post from Wednesday where I mentioned Case-ing the catalog, this is where those card designs also came from. Love this layout – simple, yet effective! Let’s take another look at my card for today:
Love how this turned out, and will be making more with the other images in this stamp set!
