Stampin’ Up Sunday ~ Perfect Postage #2

A few more cards using the postage stamp punch this week.


Another variation on the Christmas design, I made previously, for a New Baby card. I didn’t have any pink or blue seam binding, but I did have plenty of white. I dyed a couple of lengths, with inkpads, to give a pretty good match.


I adapted the 1st Birthday Card to make one for my niece, who was 17 yesterday. Switching the bunny for a heart (also from Perfect Postage) and the abc background for a Happy Birthday sentiment, which reminded me of a post mark.

  • Postage Stamp punch
  • 1” Square punch
  • Small Heart punch
  • Perfect Postage stamp set
  • Memorable Moments (numbers) stamp set
  • Morning Post alphabet stamp set

The Morning Post alphabet is definitely an investment purchase, at £33.95 for the clear mount (rubber) version, but it has so many possibilities. Pair it with the Postage Stamp punch at £14.25 and you can make a wide variety of cards, suitable for different occasions and the letters make great titles for scrapbook pages. 

Sale-A-Bration ends on Friday, which gives you a few more days to earn those freebies, if you place an order worth £45 or more. There are lots of great products on offer. For more details about those, or any of the products I’ve shown here today, please contact me at angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com and I’ll be happy to help.
