Stampin' Up! Bookcase Builder Stamp Set

  • Bookcase Builder from Occasions catalog
  • We're making Spring cards in the Apr 23 class

Bookcase Builder Stamp set

I've had this stamp for a while and I've been hesitant to use it.  Not any more!  It was so much fun picking out which elements to use on my bookcase shelves.  There are many more that I didn't use, and I'm sure I'll be using the set a lot more now that I've gotten over my initial hesitation.      

With Stampin' Up!'s coordinated colors, I was able to combine several colors for an interesting combination of elements.  I used Macaron Mint, and Emerald Envy, complimented with Soft Suede and Delightful Dijon and I also used Smoky Slate as a neutral on the Very Vanilla card stock.  

The sentiment is from the Love and Affection stamp set.  It is stamped in Emerald Envy on a Very Vanilla hand-cut tag with a matching tag in Delightful Dijon as a matt.  The sentiment also includes a small enamel heart.  

The rest of the elements in this stamp set means it is perfect for everything from baby cards, to a card for your favorite hunter cards.  What elements would you use to build your bookcase?  This set is from the Occasions catalog and is is NOT retiring.
