Believe You Can in Springtime Colors

The sweet stamp set Believe You Can is tucked away in the far back of the Annual Catalog (page 207) and is a Host set. It’s one of those sets I thought was cute, but never put it on my wish list. Hunter, on the other hand, knew we should have it. So…there it is. I enjoyed coloring it with the Stampin’ Blends markers and pairing it up with some Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I had sponged the DSP in Mint Macaron, but decided I didn’t care for it, so I cut another piece and kept it as is. I finished it off with a White Baker’s Twine double bow and some random Iridescent Sequins that I applied with the Fine Tip Glue and Take Your Pick Tool. Cute, yes?

Are you a SIPper, Casual or Avid Stamper?

In all of craftdom, there seems to be 3 main types of stampers.

There’s the ‘SIP’per     (I’m happy with Stamps, Ink, and Paper)     #simplestamping
SIPThe SIPper Card Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Floral Essence, Woven Heirlooms
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray

And the CASUAL Stamper     (I also like Layers, Punches, and Embellishments)
CasualThe CASUAL Card Adds:
Cardstock:  Pretty Peacock, Whisper White
Stampin’ Blends:  Light Old Olive
Lovelies:  2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots

And the AVID Stamper     (Gotta have it all!)
AvidThe AVID Card Adds:
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz
Lovelies:  Metallic Pearls, Silver Metallic Thread
Tools:  Frosted Bouquet Dies, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Paper Snips

My crafting supplies define me as Avid, but I think my style is more like the Casual card. I want everything and I love making cards for family and friends, but if I can’t make a card in under an hour, I get a little bored of it. Anyone else feel the same way?  Whatever your style, just keep on making and giving those beautiful hand-made treasures!
