And do you know why?
Because you made 20 cards in one night.
Not only that – they are stunning. You just earned yourself a gold star.
This kit comes with everything you need – the stamps, the ink, the washi, sequins, wood veneers – even the adhesive and envelopes are included in this swell looking kraft coloured box. The instructions are included in the box as well.
Of course, I didn’t do exactly as the instructions noted – I changed the sentiment and added a sequin or two. I made some slight variations but I certainly didn’t sway from the delightful style.
Five cards. I swooned over each one after I made them.
Another five cards. The skinny navy and white striped washi. I couldn’t get enough.
Ooohhhh la la.
Again, five more cards. The stamp set is 12 sentiments. This means that all the watercolour shapes you see are already included on the sturdy card bases. That’s right – you are not actually watercolouring in this kit. The work is done for you!
So light. So fluffy. So much like cotton candy.
All twenty cards. All finished three hours later. I couldn’t have been more pleased. I realized that this card kit was included in the Stampin’ Up! 2015 but was so popular it carried over into the new catalog released a few days ago on June 1st.
So gorgeous. So worth it.
Even Mr Jack, my three year old son, couldn’t keep his hands off the little ink pads included. Why do kids always smell inks and markers? And yes. He went to daycare looking just. like. that.
The Stampin’ Up! 2016-17 catalog is now released. Contact your local demonstrator to get a catalog or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to be your demonstrator if you are living in Canada and are interested in Stampin’ Up! products.
