Stampin' Up! Artfully Aware Stamp Set

Today's card is a simple card using one of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasion catalog.  I used these stamp sets:  Artfully Aware Stamp Set, Beauty Abounds, Detailed with Love, and Healing Hugs.  I love that Stampin' Up! designs their stamp sets to work together.  In fact Artfully Aware works with the dies and stamps from the Ribbon of Courage set from the annual catalog, which extends the usefulness of your investment.  Both the Artfully Aware Stamp Set and the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set were designed by million $ sales demonstrators from Stampin' Up!.  Janet Wakeland and Patty Bennett worked with the wonderful designers at Stampin' Up! to create these wonderfully thoughtful and heartfelt sets.  If you haven't already done so, download and look through the Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure to see all of the lovely, new sets and new products available.  

The basecard for this card is a Very Vanilla notecard.  Then another layer of Very Vanilla.  I like keeping a pack of notecard and envelopes on hand for quick cards and matching envelopes.     

Then I stamped the images from four different sets to create the card front, detailed in the recipe below.  I wanted to keep the card simple, so I chose not to color the images.    


The sentiment is from Healing Hugs stamp set.  All of the images and sentiment are stamped in Old Olive ink.     

The inside of the card is another image and sentiment from the Artfully Aware stamp set

The images and sentiments in this card were created to help brighten the day of someone going through a challenging time.  Janet Wakeland  has a large collection of samples, you'll find useful for using this set on her remARKably Created web site. 

You'll want to purchase the Artfully Aware stamp set (149447 - $23.00), and the Ribbon of Courage Set (143855- $19.00) along with the coordinating Support Ribbon Framelits (143749 - $22.00) together to get the most from these sets.  This would qualify you for a Level 1 selection from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure during Sale-A-Bration.  Add these items to your Wish List now.  


  • Stamps: Artfully Aware, Beauty Abounds, Detailed with Love, Healing Hugs
