I started following a collaborative account on Instagram a few months ago called Stampin’ Through The Catalog (@stampinthroughthecatalog if you want to follow along too)! I am so inspired by the cards that are posted to celebrate the new stamp sets in the annual catalog. You can also follow along with them on Facebook if you’re not on Instagram.
I was so excited to get the stamp set Here’s A Card because of the variety of sentiments (shown below), but when I sat down to stamp with it I couldn’t figure out how to showcase it own it’s own! I think it might be because I am so inspired by all of the amazing new products in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog that launched on June 4th.
I’ve used the Bird Ballad DSP with Smoky Slate and Pool Party Cardstock for my card and background. Then I accented my sentiment (stamped in Basic Gray) with the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Old Olive.
I always finish the inside of my cards. Most often I add a stripe of DSP that coordinates with the outside, but in this case I also used one of the bird images from the stamp set included in the May “Shelli” Paper Pumpkin Kit.
Below is a picture of the complete Here’s A Card stamp set so you too can see all of the special sentiments. I love how they coordinate with each other and you can use one on the outside of the card and one inside or both outside.
I can’t wait to see how everyone else uses this stamp set! Head over to Instagram and search the hashtag #STTCchallenge to see all of the challenge cards created so far. One Friday or Saturday of each week the team will announce which 2 stamp sets that will be featured the following week. Posts go up on Tuesday and Thurday!
Thank you so much for visiting me today! I’m looking forward to creating and sharing with you all of my creations throughout the year!
