This stamp set is a bit of a sleeper.  The style is fresh and young, and it has a strong theme of love and caring.  It was designed by Emily Montoya in the Stampin’ Up! home office – and it’s only available until January 2, 2014.  You won’t find it in any printed catalogs – just in the Online Store.

Maui Stamper Spread the Joy handmade cardsI like to add a Whisper White or Very Vanilla panel on the inside of my cards.  It’s easier to write on, and I like the finished look it gives.  I used my Simply Scored to add lines 1/8″ from each edge of the panel for more definition.

Since I made this a tall card, it needed a custom envelope.  (Drum roll…and cue the Envelope Punch Board!)

Maui Stamper Spread the Joy handmade cardsThis ‘n That Epic Day DSP ties the card and the envelope together for a perfectly coordinated look – and we do love things to be perfectly coordinated, don’t we?

All these goodies are available at my Online Store where you can shop 24/7 without leaving your comfy chair.
