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.
1 Youre Wonderful - all samples
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.
