There’s a little taste of good things to come this month from Stampin’ Up! From April 1 to 30, when you spend $20 on Stampin’ Up! products (I KNOW. Who are they kidding? $20??) you can purchase the Four Frames stamp set and the Petals Designer Series paper that will be included in the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.
I have mixed feelings about these sneak peaks. Part of me gets really excited and wants to jump right in, and part of me feels disappointed because when I come to that page in the new catalog I’ll see that set and say “oh, I’ve already got this”. Weird, I know.
So let’s check in with the excited part of me, ok?
- Four Frames Stamp Set
- Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgundy, Certainly Celery and Whisper White card stock
- Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper
- Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgundy and Peach Parfait Classic ink pads
- Decorative Label and Eyelet Trim punches
- Marina Mist 3/8 inch taffeta ribbon
- Big Shot and Lattice Textured Impressions embossing folder
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
This is a pretty simple card, and I love how the frame on the stamp finishes off the edge of the punch so I don’t feel compelled to mess around with matting it. That Certainly Celery trim was an inspiration that shocked me a little, but I’ve come around to it and like the way it looks. (Honestly? There was a narrow piece of Certainly Celery card stock sitting on the craft table right in front of me as I was making the card. I have no idea how it got there.)
The papers the Paisley Petals group are gorgeous. I’m not a big Paisley fan, and these papers are a stylized paisley on one side and stunning florals on the other. I broke down and ordered both the stamps and the papers, reasoning that I loved them both and by spending the money now, I would have more to spend in July when the full IBC comes out. How’s that for creative financing??
Here are the details on the offer:
If you need help figuring out what to spend the $20 on in order to qualify for this promotion, just let me know! I have LOTS of ideas 🙂
