Who else struggles coming up with new ideas to make a hand stamped card for masculine family and friends? I hope it’s not just me! In today’s video I am using the brand new Awesome Otters stamp set coming in the January/February Stampin’ Up!® Sale-A-Bration Catalog. You can’t purchase this adorable stamp set, but you can get it free!
That’s right, I did say free! When you spend just $50 (before tax and shipping) out of the January – June Mini Catalog (OR the fabulous annual catalog), you can add these adorable otter stamps to your order and pay nothing…zip, zero, nada!
While I used the stamps to make a hand stamped card to send to a male friend, this card would also work for a mom, sister, girlfriend, aunt, etc. You could even make it more “girlie” by changing up the colors and using one of our pink shades.
Whether you’d like to have me show you how to make an adorable, easy hand stamped card or you just want to see a sneak peek of some new products, please do watch the video. Comments are always welcome below!
