Hi Stamping Friends,
Have you heard about the exclusive stamp set, dies and bundle called Thoughtful Branches? Maybe you've seen samples floating around Pinterest or other place on the internet. For a LIMITED TIME, you can purchase this awesome set. It will be available from today, August 2nd, through August 31st or while supplies last. Click the image below and take a look! Before I forget...if you have earned any Bonus Day Coupon Codes in July, you can now use them through August 31st.
Here's a sample I made. This bundle makes card making so easy and quick. I wanted a card that reminded me of New England/Cape Cod with the weathered wood and bright blue hydrangeas. What do you think?
- When using the large background stamps, place the stamp rubber side up on your work surface, hold the ink pad in your hand and ink stamp. Then, lay your card stock on top of the stamp, cover with scrap paper and use your hand or a block to rub all over the surface. You should get a nice even coverage this way.
- Stamping Sponges are great when you need to cover a larger surface than a Sponge Dauber will cover. I cut mine into six pie-shaped pieces to use. I punch out a piece of card stock the color of the ink I'm using, fold in half and staple to the sponge. This not only gives you a little handle to hold, but also identifies the color you are using for that piece of sponge. Plus, you will have 18 sponges!! More rectangular type shapes work best.
- The Precision Base Plate is a must for these more intricate dies. One very important thing to remember is that you have to turn your cutting mat over every time you run the sandwich through your Big Shot. If you decide to purchase one, I recommend watching Stampin' Up!'s videos demonstrating how to use it. Click here and here to view both videos.
