A $5 Stamp Set? Definitely a Reason to Smile!

Stampin'UP!'s Reason to Smile Promotion
This July Stampin'UP! has Definitely given people a "Reason to Smile"!  During July of 2012 when you make a $50 purchase you will have the opportunity to purchase the Reason to Smile Stamp Set for only $5

  • This stamp set has a value of up to $20.95
  • Any $50 purchase qualifies you for this offer: orders sent to me, orders placed at a workshop or party and on-line orders including the purchase of Clearance Rack items.
  • If you place the order yourself on-line you will not be prompted for this offer. So once your order reaches $50 just remember to enter either of these 2 item numbers and you'll get the stamp set for only $5
    • Wood Mount 131274
    • Clear Mount 131275
  • This set is exclusive to this promotion and will NOT appear in any future catalogs.
Here's another reason to smile about this offer: this is a 2-step Stamp set. You can see what I mean when you look at the images of the stamp set above and then look at the card I made below.

The stamps for this project were colored with markers. 
Step 1:  Start with the outline image (the one in the lower left). Color the stem with Old Olive marker and color the petals with the Pacific Point Marker and then stamp.
Step 2: Use a Bashful Blue marker to color the "fill in" stamp (the one shown in the upper right on the image of the set) and stamp on top of the outline image.

There is some really nice imagery in this set. I love the natural looking edge of the petals on this stamp. Don't you think the torn edge on the Olive panel on the right is a good match for the "ragged" edge of the petals?

Stampin'UP!'s new Framelits dies really help give the cut layers a professional look.  The white piece for the flower was die cut with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits (#127003).  The sentiment is a stamp from a set called Itty Bitty Banners and then die cut with the matching Bitty Banner Framelit (#129267).

The Bitty Banners stamps and Framelits dies are one more example of how Stampin'UP! coordinates products.  In case you missed it be sure to check Thursday's post about the Quint-Essential stamp and matching punches and Wednesday's post about the Framelits dies, the Large oval punch and the Designer Frames embossing Folder 

Are you someone who has been thinking about investing in some more dies or embossing folders for the Big Shot?  Make that investment now and you can get this beautiful stamp set for only $5

Are you someone who has just been looking at all the wonderful card samples and thinking that maybe you'd like to get started in the hobby.  Spend your investment dollars on paper and ink and a sentiment set and when your order reaches $50 you can get this lovely flower stamp set for only $5.

Check out the catalog online - or call me (608-220-3450) to get your paper version of the catalog.  But no matter what, don't delay.  A month may seem like a long time but you'll want to be sure to act before you forget the offer is there.

Hope to hear from you soon
Happy Stamping
