Sent With Love Bundle From Stampin’ Up!

By | 27 March, 2013

Stampin’ Up! has a cute little bundle of products available for 20% off until April 30, called Sent with Love.  The bundle includes a stamp set, a package of designer series paper and some Calypso Coral Baker’s Twine.

sent_with_loveI actually think this would be a great scrapbooking set!  It’s all about travel.  The colors include Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Real Red and Island Indigo.  It feels very monotone, even with 4 colors.  It’s actually a perfect set for masculine cards, even with the coral color included.  I did find it difficult to create cards with it.  I somehow managed to get 5 card ideas and a scrapbook project out of myself, even though I didn’t immediately fall in love with the set.

The card above shows 4 of the papers and one stamp.  You can see that I cut 3 paper strips and attached them to my whisper white card base (cut 4-1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5-1/2″).  I used my 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch on one of the coral papers to create a background mat for the sealed with a kiss sentiment stamped in Calypso Coral on to Whisper White.  I punched that out with my 1-1/4″ circle punched and attached it with a dimensional.  You can see I added some of the baker’s twine and tied it with a bow.  I LOVE the baker’s twine.  It’s not a clunky twine.  It’s soft and thin and really adds a great touch to a project.

I kept the card clean and simple.  I sometimes have to remind myself that white space is okay.  There are people who love that style of card making and decorating.  I’m generally not one of them.  I do aspire to leave open spaces at times, but generally, if I see a space, I need to fill it with something!

The Sent with Love bundle can be ordered in my online store by clicking here:  Product #132851 and the bundle is $25.50.  Purchasing the bundle saves you 20% over purchasing the items separately.  I can’t wait to use the rest of the papers in a scrapbook.  They are ideal for scrapbooking and several papers lend themselves nicely to creating fabulous journaling boxes!

Thank you for visiting!

Happy stamping!
