Stamp-a-faire 2013: Whipping Up Scent-sational Cards

By August 24, 2013Stamp-a-faire


This post is focusing on elements of scratch & sniff and just how easy it can be to incorporate this feature into your cards.  We have a new stamp set that was released early to those who purchased the Stamp-a-faire kits several weeks ago, entitled Scent-imentals.  


It has images designed to work perfectly with the scratch & sniff technique, as you will see in the video below.  Another cool thing about this set?  The arrows that allow you to bring the scratch & sniff feature to the recipients attention, while still designing a stylish card.  

You say that you missed out on the Stamp-a-faire kits and really want your own copy of Scent-imentals?  Well, it will be released to the general public on September 15th for $24, so be sure to mark your calendar and stop by our store after that date to purchase your very own.  (And a special hint for everyone, including those that have the set already, you just *may* want to keep an eye out for the coordinating dies in September too!)

Create a card with a scratch & sniff element using the recipe provided below.  This task ought to be especially easy for those of you that ordered one of the Stamp-a-faire kits since you have all of those great "scent"iments close at hand.
