Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts’ Hidden Treasures Blog Hop! We are featuring a variety of Stampin’ Up products that are NOT shown in any catalog. We sure would hate for you to miss these awesome items! This is actually the first stop on the hop. You may have arrived here from Heidi’s blog though, or perhaps from Mary’s blog if you are going backwards. Never fear, all of the blogs are linked in a circle for your hopping pleasure!
I am featuring one of the photopolymer stamp sets, Map It Out. This great set features a map of the United States, along with the two letter postal code abbreviations, and a few fun extras.
My first card is part of a bigger set that will be my May project over at Craft Project Central. It is great for any patriotic occasion that you can think. I made it as part of a holiday gift for Eve’s 5th grade teacher, since they study US History this year. (You can see the whole set here.)
Stamps: Map It Out
Ink: Night of Navy, Crumb Cake
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Regals Designer Series Paper
There is a little tiny heart stamp in the set, which makes it easy to create a “missing you” card for any two places in the United States. I made this one for Eve to send to my parents. I thought that the suitcase paper from the I Am Me designer series paper would be the perfect accent.
Stamps: Map It Out, Just Sayin’
Ink: Basic Gray, Real Red, So Saffron, Pool Party
Paper: Real Red, Basic Gray, Whisper White, I Am Me Designer Series Paper
Other: Word Bubble Framelits
My final project today is a luggage tag. You can make this in any color that you chose, to match your luggage or to stand out boldly. I went for a simple patriotic look. There is plenty of room on the back to write your contact info, and if you really want you can mark the front with your destination.
Stamps: Map It Out
Ink: VersaMark, Midnight Muse
Paper: Crumb Cake
Other: Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon
