Stampin’ Up! Good Tiding Stamp set has it all!   

With all the goodies released in the 2017 Holiday Stampin’ UP! Catalog this year it is easy to get overwhelmed. Having been a demonstrator for over 17 years, I’ve learned to identify items that will be a good investment for new stampers, and still provide a WOW factor for my seasoned stampers.
I totally think the Good Tidings stamp set found on page 8 hits all these high points!!

Let’s talk 2 stepping! So just what is a 2 Step Stamping Set?

  • A set that features Two step stamping means that there are multiple stamps included meant to layer together to create multi dimensional, multi colored image.

For this card I used the following:

Old Olive Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2

Merry Little Christmas DSP : 5 1/4 x 4 and one that is 4 x 3

Basic Black Layers: 2nd Larges Circle Framelit and additional piece that is 4 1/8 x 3 1/8

Whisper White: Largest Circle Framelit and additional piece that is 5 1/4 x 4 plus scrap for Holly Leaves stamping

Ink Colors used on the card Sample are:

Here is a look at the inside and outside of the card:

Why do I think this set  is good for beginners?

It is a Complete set which includes artistic images, an outside greeting, and inside greeting and more. no additional cutting tools such as dies or punches are needed. A pair of scissors makes quick work of those Holly leaves if desired.

Why will Seasoned stampers like it?

Who doesn’t love Two Step Stampin’ Images which clearly provide a WOW factor, and when used with multiple ink colors you can vastly different looks. The inclusion of the To From stamps  make it great for creating giftables. These images go beyond Christmas tags, throw a balloon on your TO FROM tag and now you have a birthday or anniversary tag!

Here’s one more color scheme that is brighter and fresher:

Here is the sample with this color scheme (Had a hard time photographing this one) :
