When I choose a stamp set, I ask myself how I can use it. Is this just a one-occasion set, or are there other ways to incorporate it into my year? If you are just starting out with stamping, look for sets that can be used all year long. You'll be surprised at how many ideas are out there when you just search for the name of the stamp set you are wanting to buy online. Just adjusting the color scheme can transform a Christmas card into a Birthday card. Be creative! Just the simple act of creating a hand-made card will make any recipient grateful that you spent the time thinking of them!
Here are more samples of the "Your Presents" stamp set that will be available on September 1, 2015. As I mentioned in the previous post, this is a year-round stamp set. The two handmade cards are what we created at the Stampin' Up! 2015 Convention as our Make-n-Takes and I just love the varied ideas on the same stamp set!
