Sunny Days

It's kinda funny that I am blogging about this set today. Right now I am in Pittsburgh PA and it is cloudy and rainy! 
Let me show you.....
Create Sunny Days whenever someone needs them with this fresh, summery, feel-good stamp set!

This set can be found on page 116 of the Annual 2018-19 Catalog, 
or right HERE in my online store.

I just love this cute little Lemonade Stand! It just screams SUMMER to me.

This sample from the catalog used two cool items, Brusho and the Gift Bag Punch Board
Both really cool items to take your creativity up a notch! 

I had fun coloring my samples! 
Two of them I did with Alcohol markers like our Blends.
The other I did with Watercolor Pencils and the Blender Pens.
I also think it would be really cool left uncolored except for the sun
 and maybe heat embossed in black.

Here is what I did!

Watercolor Pencil and Blender Pen
..and yes, my flowers were cut with my Brother Scan n' Cut!

You can make an entire card with just the sentiment!

Create tranquil sceneries, whether it's lakes lined with trees, tropical islands, or snow-covered forests. 
You can go subtle or BOLD with the colors, this set can really deliver multifaceted cards!


Waterfront can be found on page 149 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog
or right HERE online.

I love the stitching around this card,
I have been looking at getting a small handheld machine to create this effect.

Here are some that I did 

The trees and ground are heat embossed with copper.

I have to admit, when I first saw this set I really did not care for it. Then lots of samples started popping up and I thought OK, I will give it a shot. 
Then it sat for MONTHS on the shelf, 
all sad! 
I am glad I pulled it out and gave it a try, because I truly like it and already have several more cards I would like to make with it!

I know this is the part of my posts you like the best,
My Samples! 

This card I made especially for my Friend Erin,
She just got accepted into Dental Hygiene School!
We are super excited for her.

Some of my Stampin' Pals do not like this Petal Promenade DSP.
Way too flowery and girly.
I am taking on the challenge of showing them, that in small does it is fabulous!

Shaker cards are my hands down favorite!

The Animal Outing DSP is super duper cute!

A little birdie told me that you were looking for a stamp set for all occasions.  
With this set, you can tweet them a good thought 
or sing their praises. 
Let your creativity take flight!

Let me introduce a returning stamp set!

Best Birds

This set can be found on page 108 of the Annual Catalog

It also has Thinlit dies! 
Birds & Blooms.
Found on page 215 of the Annual Catalog
or right HERE online.

There are lots of coloring options with this set!  
You could go wild with it.  
The dies are really cool, wait til you see how I used them!

I used two of our new colors here, 
Gorgeous Grape and Balmy Blue!

The white dry embossed part is actually Glossy White paper. 
The photo does not show how actually shiny and cool this looks in person.

 I just love the copper thread here.

Nice, simple and clean!

I hope you enjoyed todays post.

I have to say, sometimes I look at a stamp set like this and think....
Not much I can do with this. 
Two stamps, not a lot of versatility. 

But once again I have proved myself wrong!

Check out what I have for you today! 

 Masculine Version

Feminine Version

Generic Version

Kid/Tween/Teen Version
