Stampin' Addicts Winter Blog Hop - Perfectly You stamp set

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Winter Blog Hop - please use the Next/Previous buttons at the end of this post to click forward or backward through the Blog Hop and see all the incredible ideas and inspiration from our bloggers. I am featuring the Perfectly Penned stamp set, a Hostess Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog. Find Perfectly Penned on the inside page of the back cover of the Holiday Catalog with 6 stamps for only $9 Clear Mount or $12 Wood Mount. To purchase this set, contact your demonstrator and put together a qualifying Catalog Order, Workshop Order or Personal Order. The sentiments in this fun set cover several holidays and occasions with sayings including Sweet Little You, Happy B-DAY, Fabulous Forever Fantastic Faithful Friend, Hey Pumpkin, Merry Christmas to you, Happy Valentine's to You. It coordinates with the Hexagon Punch (hey pumpkin) and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies.

The Perfectly Penned stamp set presents endless options for cards and projects for all year long! Today I'm sharing cards and a gift project featuring just 4 of the sentiments for a variety of occasions just to show you how versatile this sweet little stamp set is - as I said, the ideas and options are endless with this set!

This Banner Birthday Card uses scrap pieces of Sweater Weather DSP and the Hearts A Flutter Framelits to create a pennant style banner across the card front. The Happy B-DAY sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and then die cut with the coordinating Hearts A Flutter Framelit. I adhered all the banners with Stampin' Dimensionals over the Linen Thread. The mini safety pin attaching the sentiment banner is from the Vintage Trinkets Embellishments, as are the two sweet button brads in the lower right corner.
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White, Sweater Weather DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pretty Prints TIEF, Vintage Trinkets, Linen Threads, Hearts A Flutter Framelits

Here is an Elegant Christmas Card using the Merry Christmas To You sentiment. This card uses the a piece of pattern paper from Season of Style DSP and a Tea Lace Paper Doilie. I attached a strip of Basic Black cardstock, punched with the Scallop Trim Die and double scored down the center with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, to the beautiful Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Trim. The sentiment is stamped in Gold Encore Ink and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder - what an elegant look is that Gold on Black! If you haven't yet tried stamping Gold onto Black, you must do it, sooner rather than later - don't wait!
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
Cardstock: Metallic Gold, Basic Black, Season of Style DSP
Ink: Gold Encore
Accessories: Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Trim, Tea Lace Doilies, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Hearts A Flutter Framelits, Simply Scored Scoring Tool

I made this Burnished Glitter Valentine Card using several  products from the Holiday Catalog. There are so many in here that will help you create lovely Valentine themed projects, including the Happy Valentine's to You sentiment in Perfectly Penned stamp set, the Silver Ultra Fine Glitter, Silver Foil Cardstock and the love sentiment from Expressions Thinlits Die. I used the Burnished Glitter Technique to create the background on Strawberry Slush cardstock - I'll have a few more photographs and details on this technique next week on my blog, so be sure to bookmark my website and come back to see this fun and oh-so-messy glitter technique - what glitter technique isn't messy?! The Valentine sentiment is stamped in Strawberry Slush ink and then die cut with the scalloped heart from the Hearts A Flutter Framelits.
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
Cardstock: Whisper White, Silver Foil, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
Ink: Strawberry Slush
Accessories: Silver Ultra Fine Glitter, Strawberry Slush Ruffled Trim, Rhinestone Jewels, Expressions Framelits, Hearts A Flutter Framelits

The last project I'll share today is just a super quick and easy Gift Bag and Tag. One of my favorite things about the versatile Perfectly Penned stamp set is how quick and easy you can pull together a card or project! And let's be honest, gifts and gift tags are usually a RUSH project! At least they are for me! I used a Tag A Bag Gift Bag (from the main catalog) with this chevron print. I inserted my gift, folded the bag over and wrapped it with a piece of Marina Mist Chevron Ribbon. The Gift Tag is the Fabulous...Friend sentiment stamped in Rose Red ink and die cut with the coordinating Hearts A Flutter Framelit and attached with Stampin' Dimensions onto a Rose Red tag die cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits. This is punched and tied with a piece of Early Espresso Baker's Twine and strung with a Sweet Little You sentiment, also die cut with the Hearts A Flutter Framelit. See how easy that was!
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
