I chose that new Cup of Christmas Bundle (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  It will spread tidings of comfort and joy, and a cup of cheer to all your friends and family this season.

NEW Stampin' Up! Cup of Christmas Reversibles Stamp Set

This fun holiday stamp set includes a special feature, called Reversibles: 

  • It includes specialized photopolymer stamps that allow you to stamp with both sides of the stamp for greater versatility.  (*Patent pending) 
  • I've noted the stamps that are reversible in the graphic above. 
  • Reversibles is  a pretty cool feature.  I love that Stampin' Up! continues to innovate with their stamp sets!

How'd She DO That? Cup of Christmas card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Cup of Christmas Bundle (includes Cup of Cheer Dies - saves 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Cherry Cobbler (11" x 4-1/4" card base)

    • Shaded Spruce (scrap for 2-1/8" stitched square die)
    • Gold Foil (1-1/4" x 4-1/4"
    • Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (1" x 4-1/4")

DOstamping Tips:

  • If you look closely, you'll find that the "sprig" images on the "Cup of Cheer" stamp are not stamped on the cup.  Why? 
    • Well...to be honest, I'm not that fond of them.  So I trimmed them off! 
    • I used our Paper Snips.  They are nice thin scissors that cut to the tip. 
    • Make sure your snips are nice and sharp.   (I use a Fiskars scissors sharpener that I found in the sewing section at Walmart). 
    • NOTE:  I did save the sprig images, and could use them not only with the cup again, but anywhere on my cards.
  • Color the poinsettia by stamping the image with Cherry Cobbler ink, move/blend color around with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (one of my favorite quick and easy coloring techniques!)

The Cup of Christmas Reversibles stamp set gives a lot more versatility to stamping!  If you enjoy a good cup of coffee or hot chocolate, this is the bundle for you!  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O
