I have used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days stamp set to make a masculine birthday card today, and since today is the first day of 2022, and I am sorting through my stamp sets and taking out the ones that are retiring, I thought I would give my favourites one last inking. Then I realised that I really liked all of the sets that I chose to buy from the retiring catalogue, in fact I will be quite sad to see them go.
I have coloured the bird with the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils, and while he looks grey in the photos, there is quite a lot of brown in there in real life, so he matches the background a lot better. After colouring the bird, I fussy cut so that I could mount it directly onto the Cork.
Not only have I used my favourite image from this catalogue but also some of my favourite DSP, the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and also the Cork Specialty Paper.
I have added a little sneak peek at one of the new stamp sets that I am already having some fun with.
Did you recognise the layout? Page 67 of the retiring Mini Catalogue at the bottom right, featuring this same stamp set as a Christmas card.
Well, here’s to 2022. Out with the old and in with the new!! I hope you are ready for it, I know I am.
