Just Celebrate!


This is one of the newest stamp sets from Stampin' UP! available in the Occasions mini catalog. The set of 8 is called "Just Celebrate" and I love each of these cute little images. I just wanted to share what I decided to do with this set.... first of all can I say I simply love it when SU cuts out the images for us...just pop them out and mount it on the wood block...it's sooooo easy!!! I decided to cut the words away from their image. This way you don't have to stamp the words with the image, or you can change which words you'd like with each of the images. Notice I mounted the words I cut away on the tops of the blocks... it's like having two stamp sets... 8 images, and 8 word stamps! The first card I made using this set was with the owl image, but I used the words "thoughts of you" from what used to be connected to the butterfly image. Try it.... :)

Hopefully SU! will continue to die-cut ALL their stamps by the next catalog?!
A girl can always hope! {LOL}

I was googling for ideas to use the 'Just Celebrate' stamp set and found your blog.

What a fabulous idea to cut the words away from the rest of the stamp!! Love it! I'm going to do this right now.

Now back to trying to find inspiration. Great cards!
