Stampin' Up! Perfect Postage Panic

No seriously, I'm in a state of panic. The Perfect Postage stamp set and the coordinating Postage Stamp Punch are only available in the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini catalogue for another 12 days. I'm not sure I've used them enough and I'm not sure I've shown you how fabulous they are either. So to calm myself I had a sesh in the room of craft and created this:


I used to love it as a kid when my Grandma bought stamps and I was allowed to tear them apart along the perforations. I'm robbed of that now that we have the self adhesive stamps, although I don't miss licking them - yuk! So what I like about this punch is how you can stick the punched shapes together closely to look like an old style perforated sheet of stamps.

The stamp features blackberries. I've stamped them in Elegant Eggplant on a variety of shades of card. Love that we have so many colours that go together - makes crafting so easy. I did cut the squares out by hand and stuck on a punched piece of Whisper White card. Dead easy though with there being an outline to cut along:


I couldn't sleep last night so was up crafting in silence whilst everyone else was asleep and one card wasn't enough. We've been looking through loads of paint charts recently trying to find a good match to some wallpaper and this card reminded me of the charts so I made these too:


It's the same design, just flipped to portrait. I did make another in landscape too:


I wanted to do one in neutrals but my eyes started to go all blurry so I went back to bed! Not sure which is my favourite, they all use Elegant Eggplant ink and it was a fab way to delve into my masses of scraps too.

So don't panic like me, just make sure you contact me to place your order for anything you want NEED from the Spring Mini before it's too late. Just 12 days left.

Oh and this green card is the one I'm popping in to the So Shelli Challenge this month:
