Are you like me and buy new stamps, etc when they first come out and when I get them all – I’m so overwhelmed as to what to use first! It gets to the point that ideas are going through my mind a mile a minute that I can’t focus on what I want to do first and consequently – I don’t do anything! Yes, that’s what’s been happening to me the past while – I bought so many delightful stamp sets and bundles when the Annual Catalogue appeared just a couple of months ago and then I was able to preorder from the Holiday Catalogue earlier this month – so, lots of new stuff but couldn’t sit down and actually make something.
I finally got to this neat stamp set, Scenic Sayings, from the Annual Catalogue and it co-ordinates so well with the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. The paper stack has 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs measuring 6″ x 6″. You can easily make up some quick cards (but I couldn’t even do that!) just pairing these two items together.
I used the sentiment Oh happy day from the stamp set on this beautiful background sheet.
The base card stock is Delightful Dijon cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. The first mat is Whisper White cut 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the all you need to do is trim one of the 6″ x 6″ scenery sheets to 5 1/4″ x 4″ as the top layer. Stamp a sentiment from Scenic Sayings and dress it up with some twine and a button and it is done.
Thanks for stopping by on another beautiful day in Beautiful British Columbia and happy stamping!
