Stampin' Up! does the work for you

One of the perks of using Stampin' Up! supplies is that the product lines are designed to go together. For someone like me who is not naturally gifted in art, this is quite a bonus. Not too long ago, I wasted a lot of time trying to coordinate printed designs, card stock and embellishments. I can't remember how many nap times were spent this way... my boys would wake up and I wouldn't have created a single thing.

These days I know I can either start with our Designer Series Paper and its coordinating card stock or I can simply take paper from the same color family and get kickin'. For example, here's a card I made using card stock scraps from the Brights Collection along with two neutrals, Basic Gray and Whisper White.


Stamp Set: Happiest Birthday Wishes (2011-2012 Hostess set)

Not to shabby, eh?

Here's another card made recently for a sketch challenge. For this card I let the colors in our Play Date Designer Series Paper dictate the color scheme.

Something Sweet (available through May 2012)
Here you see another form of coordination at work: the gumballs in this stamp set are the same size as the circle punch in our Itty Bitty Punch Pack. Simply stamp the gumball and punch it out so that you can layer them and give your card lots of dimension. (Note: Our catalog provides information about this feature; look for an outline around the stamp image and specific details by the stamp set name and pricing info.)

See? Coordination across product lines - makes creating easy and fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
