When you need a handmade card or gift to tell someone thanks, the “For Being You” stamp set from Stampin’ Up! does it in style! This is one of the Sale-a-Bration Bonus items that was added this month, which means you can earn it for FREE between now and the end of the month.
My first instinct was to color the “Thanks” with Blendabilities, but since they’re no longer available, I decided to go back to the water-based Stampin’ Write Markers. They’re not as smooth and blendable as the alcohol markers, but they still bring lots of color to a project. And one of the best things about them is that they come in ALL the Stampin’ Up! colors, so you’ll never have to wonder if they’ll match your inks and card stocks. You know they will!
I know plenty of you purchased Blendabilities when they were available, so I’ll continue to show some projects using them from time to time. If you want to know more about why Blendabilities were discontinued, check out this post: Goodbye Blendabilities.
Do you want to know how to make a mat for your Scalloped Top Tag? It really makes the tag stand out, doesn’t it! You can see a video in this post: How to Cut Mats.
If you’re like me, you love stamps that can be used to create backgrounds for your handmade cards. The hearts in the “For Being You” stamp set are perfect for that! Stamped tone-on-tone on the Soft Sky card stock, the hearts create a background that’s just too darn cute! Here’s a closeup.
The hearts also coordinate with the Hearts Border Punch, which is where the little cut-out hearts came from. Don’t you love punches that coordinate with stamps? Given a choice, most cardmakers and paper crafters would rather use dies and punches to cut out stamped images, rather than cutting by hand.
For Being You (Wood Mount 139117, Clear Mound 139120) Remember, as a Sale-a-Bration item, the only way you can get this stamp set is to order $50 worth of any Stampin’ Up! merchandise. But then it’s yours for FREE!
