The Accented Blooms Stamp Set (page 19 AC) coordinates very obviously with the Tailored Tag Punch (page 211). This punch was first introduced this time last year in the Holiday Catalog last year and is now in the annual catalog.
This stamp is so delicate and beautiful. Fussy-cutting this stamped image out was more than a little challenging but so worth it once I saw it against a piece of the Wood Textures DSP (page 191 AC).
And I have to say the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon on page 200 is so, so nice. I fear you are going to see a lot of this ribbon on future cards!
Admittedly, on wanting to get an early head-start on my Christmas cards this year, I was going to dedicate this month to Christmas in July. This then had me wondering about other uses for these stamp sets that tend to sit idly for a good part of the year.
And although I’m still making Christmas cards, I’m also now looking at how to create cards for other occasions with what is at first glance Christmas sets.
The first of my challenges is with the Labels to Love Stamp Set (page 103 2018-2019 Annual Catalog) with the matching Everyday Label (page 211 2018-2019 Annual Catalog).
The Labels to Love Stamp Set lends itself most obviously to tags but has many possibilities for beautiful simple Christmas cards as well. One thing at a time though so more about that later!
Happy belated Canada Day and Happy Independence Day – hope you’re enjoying the beginning of the summer here in the Northern Hemisphere!
