The watercolor technique is perfect with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I used the colors in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I think this card would work for just about any event and the sentiments in Another Wonderful year give you lots of options.

I designed this card with the new stamper in mind, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to add a bit more texture with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. The pattern is so subtle, it’s difficult to photograph. Stampin’ Up! used to sell plain and textured card stock and this folder adds a similar texture. Of course, using the embossing folder means you will need a Big Shot, something the new stamper may not own. You could certainly use Watercolor Paper instead of the regular Whisper White Card Stock I used. That would give you the texture without the Big Shot.

I think Rooted in Nature is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2018-2019 catalog. It has all the qualities of the beloved Lovely as a Tree with the added benefits of coordinating Framelits. It’s great for masculine cards. It can be used for Christmas and really any season. I shared a similar card a while ago, but hadn’t made a video. I made it at my in-house SIP Together, so it was time to make the video.

What will you fill your jar with? I filled it with a little bouquet of yellow and coral flowers. This card stands up on its own, a fancy fold with just one extra crease. So easy! The Stamparatus saves a lot of card stock and time. I show you how in the video.

I think this holder is perfect for a gift card for your local coffee shop. You can make this gift card holder with the Narrow Notecards and Envelopes or make your own cards and envelopes the way I did with the Envelope Punch Board. I used the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. Use Early Espresso ink and one other color to go with the paper you select. I’m afraid the Coffee Break paper is sold out now, but you could stamp your own images with the coffee bean stamp from the set. My label uses the border stamp from Labels to Love. The greeting from Coffee Café fits perfectly.

I love Petal Palette! It is a large set (It comes in 2 stamp cases!) and has some great images and sentiments too. I used the Thank you, but any of the other sentiments would work just as well. Not only that, Stampin’ Up! offers coordinating Petals & More Thinlits. That makes it easy to put together some beautiful cards. I also used Sheet Music to make my own printed background paper. Sheet Music is actual score: Für Elise, by Beethoven.

P.S. I know the camera is too far away. I have a new camera mount and a better microphone. And thanks to a tumble from the night stand, I have a new phone as well. I tried recording this project three times with the new tools, but I had difficulty getting them all to play nice together. Hopefully this will be the last video recorded from afar.
