New Spring Catalog Mid-Week Inspiration With Beautiful You

Hello there Paper Craft Crew friends and fans! Welcome to the Mid-Week Inspiration that I coordinate for our challenge this week (PCC224) where we have a very fun Black Gala Tie theme! You can use black, white and one other color on your card and here is mine!

Black and White with a Pop of Color

I LOVE my card. You knew it was coming if you’re a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator. This lovely little card is so incredibly simple, took 3 minutes to stamp and 10 minutes to clean up the supplies that I used and to generate my product list. This is an incredibly clean and simple card that has endless possibilities with all of the color combinations available to you, as well as using your other Stampin’ Up! products to make a Black Tie Gala card with. Again, this is another fabulous card that can be easily mass produced to keep on hand and send out or give to a friend at a moment’s notice with the wonderful sentiments in this stamp set.

Beautiful You

Beautiful You is a clear mount stamp set that is a double stamp set in that the entirety fits into 2 DVD cases. There are 3 images and 8 uplifting and encouraging sentiments. Also included in this fantastic stamp set is 2 of the “scribble” images, one of which is shown above.

Spring Occasions 2017 Catalog

This new stamp set can be found in the Spring Occasions 2017 Catalog that will be available for you to purchase on January 4, 2017. I can guarantee you that you are going to love ALL of the new products. Everything in the new Spring Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure coordinate with each other. For instance, in the Occasions Catalog, there will be a stamp set that you would like, but the coordinating designer series paper is in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. The beauty of Sale-A-Bration is that you also receive the coordinating designer series paper for FREE with a $50 product purchase before taxes and shipping. That’s like having your cake and eating it too! It doesn’t get much better than that.

Masking Technique

The only technique I did on this card is masking. Since the stamps are clear mount and not photopolymer, I did not want to do any stamp surgery on them. I usually only do that with photopolymer stamps. I simply took a Post-It-Note and covered up one side of the sentiment with selective inking of Basic Black Archival Ink (stamped twice using my MISTI for a crisp and clean black inked image) and Melon Mambo Ink. I felt that the card would be off balance without any extra Melon Mambo and this was the trick. I then adhered 3 small rhinestones around the card in a visual triangle. I had originally tied some of our 1/8″ Silver Ribbon around the left side of the card, but it just wasn’t cutting it for me. I took it off and the card looked so much better. I was trying to find a little extra bling to tie in the tiny rhinestones, but they are tiny…it’s okay.

I promise you that you will love this stamp set. It’s already being talked about as the most highly requested and popular stamp set in the Spring Catalog. There are no Thinlits to coordinate with the card, just an awesome stamp set that I can’t wait to play with more!

Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit us today. We really appreciate it! I know it’s a busy time of year for you. God bless and everybody at the Paper Craft Crew wishes you very Merry Christmas with your family and loved ones.
