I just wanted to share how I came to the decision to use the Tag Buffet Stamp Set.

At our previous face-to-face sessions, I could mix and match stamps from multiple sets with other products, and use lots of different ink pads. Running the Class over ZOOM, where attendees use their own supplies, requires me to take a very different approach.

Trying to find a stamp set/bundle to use for this Class has been hard. With Stampin’ Up! rules not allowing the sending of stamped images in class kits, I have had to use quite rigid criteria to find a suitable set.

My criteria:
– a range of images to create 4 different projects (I looked at the holly, trees and snowflake sets, but I didn’t think I would be able to create 4 different enough designs, without requiring additional items)
– images to be fairly generic as cards need to be suitable for all (not too cutesy, niche, need lots of careful colouring etc)
– can be used with a limited colour palette (eg red, green, black/grey)
– images need to to be fairly simple to cut out by hand if required
– stamp set has at least 2 sentiments
– can work with various embellishments (ribbon, gems etc)
– the projects need to be be quick and easy to make (multiples of each design)
– stamp set under £20

Bonus criteria:
– part of a bundle/co-ordinating items available
– not just for Christmas (can be used for other occasions
– designs can be used by those who are using different stamp sets
