You know you have done this — you are looking through a Stampin’ Up! catalog and are immediately turned off from a stamp set or product suite simply because you do not like the colors — I know I have.
Today I am sharing with you a video from the fabulous Shannon West at Stampin’ Up!’s home office where she demonstrates that simply changing the colors in a project creates a whole new look!
So as the old saying goes, never judge a book by its cover. I guess this can be applied to crafting — never judge a project by its color scheme. I confess that I did and passed on these stamp sets / suites myself. Now I will have to give this further consideration on whether these need to be added to my wish list (a/k/a “must have list”) … you know you have one of those too.
Over a year ago Shannon started a movement – #imbringingbirthdaysback – where she started a mailing list of everyone who wanted to receive a handmade birthday card from her. She designed and Stampin’ Up! manufactured a custom stamp to commemorate the occasion. I was the happy recipient of card #1859 in November 2016!
Here is a video that shows all of the cards that Shannon received on her birthday:
Join me in the birthday card revolution — make handmade cards and actually mail them out to your friends and family for their birthdays. After all – a card is a hug with a fold in the middle.
Thank you for dropping by. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
