Hello and thanks for stopping by today! With all of the new wonderful stamps now available in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog, it’s easy for me to grab for them and forget some of my favorites. Thoughtful Banners stamp set is something I grab when I am creating a handmade card for a person in particular. There are sayings that say “from us” that I can stamp and that, my friends, is priceless. It’s too easy to run out to the drug store and pay $8.00 for a pre-made card, and the fact that I really enjoy making a card that fits a particular person means a lot to me and to who will receive it as well. Thoughtful Banners has been helping me create a Father’s Day card from us as a little family because I include my kids in the signature as well.

A Designer Series Paper that fits for a guy or for any other occasion- yes, please!
Nature’s Poem Suite of products are meant to coordinate together but also to compliment other stamp sets as well. The papers are versatile, which is what I like about them the most. I grabbed this lovely piece for creating a Father’s Day card for my father-in-law, knowing it will coordinate with a few texture bits- such as the punched and die cut pieces included on the card front.
If you follow my blog, you already know (and probably have a laugh or two!) that I am a very crooked stamper. I’m not sure if it is my eye glasses or not, but if something needs to be stamped in a straight line, then I need help. One way that I have discovered to overcome this issue is to make it appear as if the stamping is off-set on purpose. All of the words for this project seem to be falling like the leaves in the paper, which takes away the need for me to stamp straight. Crisis averted! What are some of your best tips for getting everything lines up just right?
