Update Tuesday October 1, 2019 - Here's A Card


Welcome to today's Update Tuesday!  I love the projects that Stampin' UP! shared with myself and other demonstrators this morning.  Three completely different cards but sentiments used are all from the same stamp set called Here's A Card.  How fantastic is that?!
The Here's a Card Stamp Set is perfect for any occasion...especially when you don't know what to say.  So many sentiments, so many possibilities for cards.  This stamp set is on my personal wish list.  I might need to buy it sooner rather than later.

The samples above, that Stampin' UP! has provided, show how a beginning or experienced crafter could use products from both the annual catalog and the holiday catalog to get cards perfect for any occasion.  These samples prove that you don't need a kit or medley to create amazing cards...just your creative instincts!

The Congratulations card combined this stamp set with the Leaf Punch and the Stitched Nested Dies from the annual catalog with the Feels Like Frost designer series paper from the holiday catalog.  What a beautiful combination.

The Happy Birthday card starts with a Whisper White card base. It features the Balloon Bouquet Punch from the annual catalog and the Brightly Gleaming designer series paper from the holiday catalog.
