Well, I was going to have a new video for you today. But it needed a section re-taped. However, lawn maintenance got in the way. What can I say, it must be the day for everyone to get out their mowers, weed wackers and chainsaws. Maybe I'll try again on Monday.
So instead, I'll share one of my pillow gifts from the Stampin' Up! DisneyWorld incentive trip. A delightful stamp set called World Treasures. It's one of many new products in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog. I fell in love with it right away. I'm always on the lookout for peacocks, as my best friend collects thems.
I also wanted to try out the new Stampin' Up! firm foam Stampin' Pads. So I reached for Midnight Muse for this card. Take a look...
Let me tell you...I LOVE the new Stampin' Pads. The firm foam pad really made a difference in my stamping experience. As the peacock is a larger stamp, I would have typically spent a good amount of time to twist, tap, tap, tap and twist and tap some more to get good ink coverage. Not with the new firm foam. Just a "Goldilock's touch" will do. You know...not too hard, not too soft, somewhere in the middle. Plus just a couple taps is all you need. Then ooh - the look on cardstock is just wonderful. In addition it is much more opaque - love it!
