From the Stampin' Up! Blog ~ You're Wonderful! - New Photopolymer Stamp Set!
I’m happy to announce the September photopolymer stamp set, You’re Wonderful—inspired by one of my carved stamps. This is my second stamp set.
Here in the Sales Division at the home office, it has become a tradition to take a turn creating a birthday card for someone else in the division. This year it was my honor to make a card for one of our illustrators, Kathy Pitt. I love this woman. She’s smart, funny, super-sassy, and is an inspiration to me. I wanted to make her something special. She designs so many marvelous stamp sets for all of us, and I wanted to make one for her. The sentiment of the stamp I made for her may not be to everyone’s liking, but I think it fits her sassiness.
The card I made for her birthday looked just like this one.
I love the whimsical feel of the scripted sentiment, the fun flow of the banners, and the pops of color from the gorgeous flowers. This card makes me happy.
I have to give credit to our other illustrator, Lori Sume, for drawing the beautiful flowers. I tried to draw some myself, but it just wasn’t working. She did an incredible job.
I used the flower stamps on this card to create my own background. I stamped the flowers in sections using Crumb Cake ink, then quickly added Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the damp ink to give the flowers a softer look.
I clear-embossed the flowers and banners on this card, too.
I hope that you’ll enjoy this stamp set as much as I do! You can order a set for yourself by contacting your demonstrator, or from our online store here.
I’d love to see what you create with it. Leave a link in the comments below, or share your creations on Pinterest and tag it #yourewonderful .
