Video: Building Stamp Sets

I love that stamp companies are stepping up their stamp designs for some of us stamp addicts – creating more stamp sets that allow us to “build an image” in many colors. I have longed for such stamp sets for some time. Stampin’ Up and Papertrey Ink have had great ones in the past, but it is fun to see some new players in the game. I call these “building stamp sets” and I am so happy to see more and more available these days!

Here is a video I created for Simon Says Stamps. (By the way – please head over to their new blog and subscribe – they have LOTS of videos, including awesome ones from Kristina and Shari.)

Fun, huh? I love having a one-layer-card that has that much color to it. AWESOME. These paisley designs are so much fun. WPlus9 has a lot of great building sets. (HERE is another great example.)

The Hero Arts Shadow Inks are perfect for this. Think of all the fun color combos you could do this design in…

Don’t forget to stop by the Simon Says Stamp blog for more info.

Oh – I have been sharing ink and die storage ideas on Twitter and Instagram and have been getting lots of questions. I promise to share more here in the next couple weeks. See you soon.
