12 Days of Paper Stacks: #1 Watercolor Wings

I love challenging myself to use one stamp set or product and create multiple things with it.  I seem to get more creative if I am forced to focus on something rather than have too much to choose from!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be using the Stampin’ Up paper stacks.  These packs are monochromatic patterns mixed with white in polka dots, diagonal stripes, flowers and script designs.  You get a lot in one pack!  40 sheets, 12 x 12 for only 22.00! Compare that to regular designer paper which is 11.00 for 12 sheets.  Even with tax and shipping, they work out to around 65 cents a sheet!  

Here’s #1!   I will be sharing 12 ideas using the paper stacks (not 12 days in a row:) over the next 2 weeks.  This one came out differently than when I started but I liked it better!

I made a quick photo video of my process to make the card.  It’s something new for me to do rather than a full video – let me know if you like it!

I appreciate you ordering from me and so I’m sending out a gift to those who order this month and December. (yes I will be sending them out if you already ordered this month!)

  If you have ordered $25 or less, I’ll send you one sampler of the paper stack. If you have ordered $40 or more, I’ll send you 2 packs!   I’m giving away Regals and Neutrals to start and they are 4″ x 6″ packs, perfect for card layering!  20 sheets in each packs, all 10 colors in the group.

Place your orders HERE and be sure to check out the Clearance Rack there, too!

weekly Deals graphicOdd mix things on the Weekly Deals this week!   Just the wood mount stamp is on sale so if you want clear mount, it is #139876 for $19.00, regular price.   I have some wood mount stampers who will love this one since wood typically costs more.

The Snow Friends framelits are on sale but in my opinion, you need the stamps!  And if you are getting the stamps and the framelits separately, it will cost you more, even with the sale price on the framelits!    Just get the bundle at $45.00 to save 15% on both.  #140844

That’s all for me!  Go Stamp Something!

    Not sure what will be on sale for the Online Extravaganza next week. Hopefully!

  4. Great idea for a card; love the wraparound sentiment. I recently bought the regals paper stack; I was so impressed with the vibrancy of the different shades.
