Mini Catalog Sneak Peek: Nuts About Squirrels

Super excited to share a fun new stamp set, Nuts About Squirrels.  It will be available to order starting August 3.

NOTE for if you missed the announcement:

  • The release of the 2021 Jul-Dec Mini Catalog was delayed until August 3 (due to product & shipping delays).   
  • As many of you are receiving your catalogs in the mail now, it can be confusing, as the catalog is still labeled July-December 2021.  Stampin' Up! was unable to change it because the catalogs were already printed. 
  • Mark your calendars for August 3 to start your Mini Catalog shopping.

Stampin’ Up! Nuts for Squirrels stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske coming August 3 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat P

The darling Nuts About Squirrels stamp set (156475) is SO cute!  Don't you think so?

I was immediately drawn to it.  Especially because my hubby has had his share of run-ins with squirrels, eating the bird seed so fast the birds don't even get a chance.  He's tried many gadgets over the years, but they seem to get around all of them.  I think they watch him put them together - they are smart little rodents.  I can see myself making birthday, anniversary, valentine's day cards for him...great for all-year-round!

DOstamping Tips:

  • I made this card for a swap I'm participating in - needed to make 20 cards!
  • To make the stamping go faster.  I used the Stamparatus, mounted the squirrel & branch images on the same plate (as they use the same ink color - Early Espresso) and stamped them as the same time.  
  • After the stamping was completed, it felt like it was missing something.  Designer Series Paper to the rescue.  Even a small strip can make a difference!
