While preparing for World Cardmaking Day, 1 October, I couldn't wait to play with the new Warm Welcome Stamp Set.  This is a new stamp set from the upcoming January-June 2023 Mini Catalog that we're able to order NOW, to make cards this Saturday, during World Card Making Day. Everyone can attend Stampin' Up! Virtual World Card Making Day for FREE.  A few days before the event, Stampin' Up! will add a link on the Stampin' Up! website so anyone can access the virtual event. But I couldn't wait to play with this stamp set. So, I put together this quick card using the new Warm Welcome Stamp Set.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the hello sentiment down the side of a Fresh Freesia layer.  Then I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut a couple of stitched squares -- one in Starry Sky, the other in Basic White.  I selected a cute image from the new Warm Welcome Stamp Set along with a sentiment and stamped both in Starry Sky ink.  I added a Fresh Freesia Open Weave ribbon and a Fresh Freesia Opal Round.  Join us this Saturday for the FREE October 1 World Card Making Day Event.  See more info below.  

Greeting card using Stampin' Up! Warm Welcome Stamp Set

This card uses a Fresh Freesia Cardstock basecard.  Then a layer of Basic White, and another layer of Fresh Freesia, stamped with the Hello sentiment from Warm Welcome.  I used my Stamparatus to get the sentiments evenly spaced down both sides.

I die cut a Starry Sky Square and a Basic White Square, and added an Open Weave Fresh Freesia Ribbon between them.  I stamped the sentiment and image from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set onto the Basic White Square.  Then I used a Fresh Freesia and Stary Sky Blends to color the two hands and coffee mugs.

I glued all the layers together, and added a Fresh Freesia Opal Round to the top of the Basic White image layer to add a bit of bling.

What fun sets to work with!  Cottage Rose is from the Annual Catalog.  Cottage Wreaths is from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  And Warm Welcome is from the upcoming January-June 2023 Mini Catalog.  Yes!  You can purchase the Warm Welcome set before the 2023 Mini Catalog is released!

Don't have these sets to use?  No problem!  Find similar sets among your existing sets, and create your cards using sets you already own. For instance,  instead of Cottage Wreath, consider using Natural Prints from the Annual Catalog.  This is what I'll be using. I already have the other two set.  Including the Warm Welcome Bundle the new set from the 2023 Mini Catalog. 

Project Measurements:  Before the event, use the Stampin' Up! cutting guide to precut the cardstock you'll need to make the three cards Stampin' Up! will show us how to create.  They will also show us some new techniques. 

I'm cutting two sets of cardstock for each card so I can make a second card once the live event ends.  That way I'll have one card as a sample and a second card ready to send.
