annual-catalog-favorite-stamps

It was tough to come up with my annual catalog favorite stamps.  I had my garage sale over the weekend and heard many times how much people love this new catalog.  I have to agree.  I like the new features like the ability to order an entire suite, the bundles are all listed at the beginning of the catalog and the beginner stamp sets.

Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorites are!  If you need a copy of the catalog and you don’t have a demonstrator you work with I’d be happy to send you one.  Just fill out this quick form, I will give you a call so we can get acquainted and then I will pop one in the mail to you.

Happy reading!

I feel like you can do just about anything with this bundle.  You can make birthday cards for everyone including guys.  You can make sympathy, thinking of you or get well cards.  For all these cards you’ll need a greeting not in this set, but you can always use the inside of the card to get that across.  The greetings that come in this set are wonderful for friendship and family greeting cards.  I can see many technique as well as clean and simple cards from the dies you have in the bundle too.

This is going to be my go-to birthday set for a long time to come.  I can see making cards for everyone with this.  You can do so many cool things with these dies!  You can use them as shown in the catalog.  Then you can try layering them.  Next you could emboss them to not only add dimension, but also texture.  Another technique would be to emboss them into the card.  The details of these dies would be beautiful.

When I saw this set all I could think about was using my Stampin Blends to add beautiful colors to these flowers.  I also love the font and the greetings  in the set.  The dies not only make it easy to cut out the flower images, but they added the two detail bar dies.  These will make it easy to add borders to frame the blooms.

Talk about versatile!  These stamps are beautiful and again scream to be colored with the Stampin Blends.  Then Stampin Up really upped the value by pairing them with the you-just-have-to-have Stitched Nested Label Dies.  You will use these dies for many years to come.  I’ve already used them on cards other than with the Free as a Bird set and can’t wait to try more new techniques with them.

Don’t laugh, but I feel like Stampin Up read my mind on this one.  I love the idea of one stamp set that can take care of the front and inside of many cards.  Then they even used super cute fonts in a variety of shapes and sizes.  I’m really looking forward to using this set.  I might even have something special up my sleeve for later this year!

I’m so happy to have a beautiful rose back in the catalog!  This one is very easy to use.  You have the chance to do triple stamping, but I’ve made some beautiful samples with just two stamped layers too.  The addition of the dies makes this a must have, but the stamps alone are just gorgeous.

Many of the stamps listed in My Favorites have dies that make the stamp set a greater value.  This is the most true case.  These word dies make this stamp set work.  We’ve had holiday sets in the past, but none in my memory have included more occasions.  With this one set you are “set” for the year!

Sweetly Swirled #149254 – $21.00

I love this font!  I will be using these greetings over and over.  The shapes make great frames and coordinate with some punches and dies.  At the end of the day, it’s all about the font.
