6/7 Stampin' Up! Gently Falling with Calypso



One of my favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Mini Catalog is called "Gently Falling." The more I've worked with it, the more I love it. This will be the card my Open House Attendees will get to make at my Open House tomorrow. Isn't it gorgeous? And, it's so FAST to make when you use the Clear Mount stamp set option. I put all the outline pieces onto one block, inked it all up in Early Espresso and stamped the outlines all in one awesome swoop! Then, say goodbye to your Stamp-a-ma-jig because you won't need it when you are over stamping the color with the bold stamps. Totally easy, and totally FUN!

My customers will be given two sentiment options. The one I used on this card is from the "It's a Wrap Holidays." I stamped the image onto a piece of scrap Whisper White and punched it out with the new 1" Square Punch. Then I trimmed it down to size with a scissors. The postage stamp border can be made in one of two ways. First you can just punch two, trim a full scallop off one side and piece the two together. Or, you can punch it out, use Dotto to stick it onto a paper handle, line it up in your punch again and punch off one edge of scallops.

I really love this card. I used it in a recent demo only swap, I awarded my Top Sellers in my downline with it and tomorrow and I'm sharing it with my customers. I hope you've enjoyed seeing it here on Stamping to Share.
Have a great day!! And be sure to stop by my Open House if you are local!! (There will be specials!!!)
