My stamp clubs are about to start up again for the fall and I’m so excited to see everyone again!! 

As I mentioned, there are a few changes this year.  One change, is the way I choose and design the projects we will be doing at each meeting.  This year, the hostess of the month gets to choose which stamp set she would like to have featured.  After the stamp set has been chosen, I design cards using that set so my club members get to have many examples to take home of how to use that particular set – or one like it.

This month an incredible thing happened.  I have 3 clubs that run September to June each year.  My first 3 hostesses, one from each club, without knowing it, all picked the same set they wanted featured!!!  What a coincidence!  I doubt very much that that will happen again this year!

So, here is my set sampler for the stamp set “Style Beautiful”, located on page 127 of the Stampin’Up! catalogue.

Style Beautiful goes so well with the Lap of Luxury DSP and the Oval All set.  I used both these other products to help create this wedding or shower card.  It also looks like I used a background stamp on this card but I didn’t; you will be creating this background with just one little stamp!

This second card will involve stamping directly onto DSP using a coordinating stamp.  Did you know you could do that???

I didn’t want you to think that you could only make “girly”cards with this set so I created a masculine one for you as well.

I thankful for my customers who will be taking me out of the comfort zone this year forcing me to try stamps that don’t usually catch my eye.  I’ll be growing as a designer this year and I’m definitely looking forward to it!!
