This week on the Sisters in Stamping blog our Fabulous Friday product focus is the Something Sweet stamp set available in the Occasions mini catalog. It works perfectly with the Sweet Treats cup, also available in the mini. I was very fortunate to receive this stamp set for FREE when I attended the Founder's Circle event last fall. We were treated to a sneak peek of all the stamp sets in the Occasions mini and then were totally thrilled when we could each choose one stamp set to take home. What a fabulous company Stampin' Up! is and Shelli Gardner is so generous and amazing!!
This set is pretty versatile, as you will see when you view the projects created by my fellow Sisters here. Instead of a card, I decided to create a simple 12" x 12" scrapbook page with the gumball machine since my daughter Kelsey received one for Christmas this year. I don't know about your kids, but my kids LOVE gum! They've all been saving their dimes to put in her machine to get gumballs out... can you believe the price of bubble gum has gone up to a dime? When did that happen?!
What do you think? Isn't it a cute set? I haven't used my bold brights colors other than real red since summer time, so it was refreshing to pull these bright colors out and use them... especially since they're calling for a major snowstorm here in Central Virginia this weekend. Now if I only had my pictures developed so I could put them on my page... that's a project for next week ;-) I created my own background paper using whisper white cardstock and various bold bright ink pads with the gumball stamp and the title was stamped with the Schoolbook Serif alphabet set. Recognize the heart? It's the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit from the Occasions mini catalog - I cut it out with my Big Shot.
If you'd like to purchase this stamp set or any other materials that I used to create my project please send me an email or you can shop 24 hours a day online via my store on my demonstrator website here... just click on "Shop Now."
