One stamp set - two cards

Wood Words festive and fun card idea from Duchess of Design

It is always fun when you can make your stamping dollars go further! One of the easiest ways to do that is to find a stamp set that is versatile, either in the images included in the stamp set or in the greetings that it provides. When you initially look at the Wood Words stamp set you might only see it as a rustic or vintage stamp set. It definitely has a country vibe to it! But, if you look past the catalog images or what you see on Pinterest and just study the stamps you will see some classic shapes and floral images. Being able to present card ideas at some recent card making events in two different ways really showcases the versatility of this stamp set. One card is done in that rustic/country look (get all the details for that card here) that you see in the catalog and the other (above) is done in a festive, fun, modern looking card idea.

Adding to the differences in the two cards are the color choices and accents used for the greetings. One uses the new Pretty Label Punch as a playful accent and the other used a rustic punched greeting banner with a little splash of the 1/4" copper trim to add to the country feel.

Another way to make your stamping $ go further is Bonus Days! For EVERY $50 you spend July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 1–31. There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn! Awesome! Beyond awesome really!!

Why is this beyond awesome!? There's going to be a Christmas stamp set released early (August 1st to be exact) called Carols of Christmas!  Did you notice that August 1st is the first day you can use your Bonus Days coupons?! So you could get that new Christmas stamp set or anything else you'd like in August!  Yet again, you've made your stamping $ go further!
