The Perfect Pair
There are some amazing bundles in our catalogs. Whether a stamp set is paired with a punch or with a die, the items in the bundle are MFEO (made for each other). Like on purpose. Case in point, the bundles that are on sale at 20% off during the month of March. The items in these bundles wouldn't be the same apart.
BUT...there are a lot of products in our catalogs that aren't sold together and coordinate beautifully. Take the On the Horizon Bundle and the Oceanfront stamp set, for example. They really do make the perfect pair, don't they? Holy moley, they're awesome together, and I knew it shortly after I purchased them both.
Back in December 2021, I sat down to use the On the Horizon bundle for a swap then realized how perfect they really are. My brain does this weird thing that when it looks at stamp sets for long enough, it'll start picturing ways to use the stamps. And when I sat there staring at both of these stamp sets, and this is what came to me:
Pool Party cardstock:
-4 1/4" x 11"
Crumb Cake cardstock:
-4" x 5 1/4"
Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper:
-3 3/4" x 5"
Very Vanilla cardstock:
-3" x 3/4"
It was New Year's Day 2022, when I debuted this card on camera for members of my Catalog Kick-off group on Facebook. Each time a new catalog is released, I share live demonstrations and more with people in this group, and we have lots of fun celebrating new products and saying goodbye to some of our favorites. If you'd like to join us cool kids for the catalog kick-off for the new 2022-2023 being introduced soon, use this link. I have uploaded that January 1, video to YouTube, so even if you have not belonged to that catalog kick-off group, you can watch me put this card together:
Isn't the rolled cardstock frame fun? And it's really quite easy, too! Add the beautiful background made with Oceanfront stamp set and wet Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and we've got ourselves a winner. Note even a couple other details that finish off the card just beautifully.
For a list of the supplies I used on this card and links to my online store, see below. Please note that the On the Horizon Bundle is currently on low inventory. Get your hands on it before it disappears for awhile!
So what do you think...a perfect pair, right?
Stamping blessings, my friends!
