Thank you for joining us for the February Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin’ Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to the Stampin’ Up! products we LOVE. We hope you find new ideas for using the products you already have – or find new items to add to your wishlist.
You should have just left stop number 9 on the Pals Hop –
If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful blog hop this month, with everything life threw at me lately, I wasn’t sure this was going to happen.
Well the blog hop theme this month is our favorite Stampin’ Up! product. Well, my favorite thing about Stampin’ Up! is not a thing but a who; it is the awesome group of Pals! The past few weeks have been especially trying for me and the Pals, a group of stampers from all over the country, have been such a source of support for me! It is so awesome that this group of people whom I’ve never met face-to-face stood alongside of me, encouraging me and praying for me, and helping me. If you are looking to be part of group of awesome, talented and caring stampers, then let me introduce you to the Pals. If that sense of belonging, and sharing of talents is what you crave, then I invite you to join us! Email me or leave me a comment and I’ll show you how you can be a part of this awesome group, too!
But since I can’t showcase the Pals, I did make a card to showcase the things I love about Stampin’ Up! – the coordination of products. Stamps match the framelits, dies and punches, so you can pop out a perfectly cut image with just one quick motion. Inks, cardstock, and designer series paper all match perfectly with our embellishments; ribbons, buttons, brads. Innovative products, on-trend colors and styles, the highest quality. It all comes together into the perfect product coordination. And that is what I love about Stampin’ Up! Not just one thing, but how all things come together so effortlessly, so perfectly and so creatively.
This card starts with a background embossed with our new Honeycomb embossing folder (hexagons are so trendy right now, see what I mean!), and has flags stamped from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set, then popped out with the Hearts a Flutter framelits die for a perfect fit (see the coordination?), another die from the Apothecary Accents Framelits die set provides a beautiful shape for the focal point. (Couldn’t do that with scissors!). The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the “You’re Amazing” stamp set and is colored with Stampin’ Write markers in just the right colors to match the ink pads used to stamp the flag images and matches the DSP from the Summer Smooches collection. And my favorite item from the new Spring Catalog….(drum roll, please)… is the Pinwheels Framelits die. This cutie-patootie pinwheel is a snap to cut out and assemble. And at less than 5 bucks, its’a bargin too! A brad from the Brights Collection is the matching shade of Daffodil Delight and finishes off the whole project.
Yup, perfect product coordination. That’s what I love the most about Stampin’ Up!
