Sitting Pretty Bundle – Stamp Set Showcase Projects

Today I’m sharing the projects I created and shared during my Stamp Set Showcase presentation at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in Atlanta! I was honored to be selected as a presenter and I had so much fun!

The Sitting Pretty Bundle (Sitting Pretty stamp set & Pretty Park Framelits) is a new bundle in the upcoming Annual Catalog, which releases on June 1!

Here is my first project:

It’s a clean & simple note card (3-1/2″ x 5″) that features my favorite die in the bundle – a textured bench! I cut it out of Gray Granite cardstock – a beautiful new neutral color! The heart is stamped in Merry Merlot – another beautiful new neutral color! I made a set of 10 of these to fit in the card box I shared with you on Friday:

My second project is a sliding card pocket that features a pair of great sentiments with the bulldog & bird!

Here’s what the card looks like with the inside card taken out:

My third project is a beautiful garden scene note card:

The Gray Granite piece under the bench is debossed with a cobblestone/flagstone pattern created with one of the dies in the bundle. After running it through the Big Shot, I tore around the debossed pattern. The brick pattern is in Merry Merlot, stamped-off once.

My fourth project is a mini 3″ x 3″ card featuring a different use for the cobblestone/flagstone die.

I simply added 2 pieces of washi tape to the back of the die to use as “handles”, pressed it into my ink pad, and then pressed it onto the card for a really cool pattern with texture! Here’s the inside of the card featuring a sentiment from the Hanging Garden stamp set:

And my fifth and final project was for the University of Georgia fans in the audience!

It’s a Ghirardelli Square treat holder!

I had so much fun with this bundle and hope you enjoyed seeing what I came up with! This bundle will be available for purchase on June 1!

  1. Julie, I am awed with your creations, particularly your boxes. I love the jovial and whimsical ideas. Love all of your samples of the Sitting Pretty set.

  2. Love them all, Julie! Will you be doing a video or FB Live on any of the techniques? I’m particularly interested in seeing how you did that flagstone/cobblestone with Washi Tape technique. I can’t wait to get these products!
