Introducing Stamp-a-faire 2015 Exclusive: Fashion Sense


Fashion Sense will ONLY be available on Stamp-a-faire day to all customers who make a qualifying $100 purchase. All orders made between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST on Stamp-a-faire Day tomorrow (August 29, 2015) that total $100 (before shipping) will receive the set for FREE!  You will still earn Rewards Points on your order too, so it's an amazing offer!


This stylish set gives a nod to some of the fashion industry's biggest icons.  Add something completely fresh and fun to your stamping collection with the addition of Fashion Sense.  The quotes selected are not only fantastic to pair with the fashion sketch, but they also convey great messages that will be perfect for many of your card recipients.  The fashion sketch can be stamped in a bold neutral and then you can have fun "designing" your own gowns as you add accents and custom color schemes to the model's attire.

A few measurements for you…

  • Model, 2-1/2" x 2-1/4"
  • Star trio accent, 1/2" x 3/8"
  • Rose trio accent, 1/2" x 3/8"
  • "Kindness is always fashionable." Amelia E. Barr, 1-5/8" x 3/4"
  • "Make it work." Tim Gunn, 1-1/2" x 1/2"
  • "To have style you must believe in yourself." Yves Saint Laurent, 2-1/2" x 5/8"
  • "Dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style." Carrie Bradshaw, 2-1/4" x 1-1/8"
  • "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." Coco Chanel, 1-1/2" x 1"

Here are a few things I whipped up using this exclusive set!

Kindness is Fashionable Card

For my first card I just knew I had to experiment with pairing that gorgeous dress with Zig Clean Color markers, and ended up going a little freestyle too.


I stamped the dress in VersaMark and heat embossed it in white.  I then colored it with a marker and went back over it with a watercolor brush.


I sprinkled glitter onto the top of the dress before the watercoloring dried and it stuck nicely.


For the flowers and leaves I just scribbled with the markers and watercolored over them.  After they dried I wen back in and added some details with a white gel pen.  The sentiment was heat embossed last.

Believe in Yourself Card

This card is as simple as it gets!  Because of the "brushed" style I used when illustrating the set, it is easy to get a fun artistic look to your projects.


I stamped the model in True Black then stamped the dress in Blueberry Sky, making sure it was slightly *off*.  I then was able to go back in with a few accents in Enchanted Evening, New Leaf and Fresh Snow.


The sentiment was heat embossed onto a panel of New Leaf, then stapled in place.  You could recreate this card in a variety of different color schemes and even swap out the sentiments!

Never Go Out of Style Card

Sometimes as a designer it is fun to embrace the absence of color, like this black and white card here.


I used black embossing powder on black cardstock with the dress and a scattering of stars for a unique look.  A few dabs of Glossy Accents along the edge of the angled panel allowed me to go just a *little* crazy with some chunky glitter.


The white card underneath allowed me a little spot to tuck in the sentiment.

Always Be Different Card

This card design gives you the ability to use up some of your fabric stash!

Back pattern

I stamped the whole Classic Kraft card base with Charcoal Palette ink, except for one model on the front in black allowing her to *stand out*.


I stamped the model again directly onto fabric and trimmed out the dress portion, adhering it in place on the model stamped in black.  Have fun experimenting with different pattern scales on your fabric!  I also stamped a few Vintage Cream flower clusters around the model to help create emphasis.

Isn't everything just gorgeous?  What I love most about this set is that you can really keep things simple with the overall design/layout, and then go to town with techniques and color on that beautiful dress!  I know so many people that would love to make cards for with this collection!  It's certainly going to get a lot of mileage here!

Now it's your turn!  If you were one of the customers who pre-ordered the Limited Edition Stamp-a-faire Kit a few months ago, you already happen to have your hands on Fashion Sense!

We would LOVE to see your Fashion Sense projects!  

Whip up a little something inspired by one of the techniques or designs the team shared above or do something all your own!  You have until 7am EST, Tuesday, September 1st to share your project and have a chance to win a $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate!  Looking forward to seeing all of your creations!

Do I need to enter a special code at checkout in order for the Fashion Sense set to be added on?  Do I need to add Fashion Sense to my cart?

You don't need to do anything to receive your FREE complimentary copy of the Fashion Sense set.  It will automatically be added to your order AFTER check out.  It should appear on the email confirmation that you receive after placing your order.  If you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to contact Customer Service.

I can't place a $100 order tomorrow but really want Fashion Sense.  Will it ever be available for sale?

No, unfortunately Fashion Sense will never be made available for sale and tomorrow will be the only opportunity to earn it for free.

Do I need to make sure to place my Stamp-a-faire order earlier in the day in order to get a copy of the free set?  Is there a possibility you will sell out and not have enough by the end of the day?

Everyone who places their order between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST on Saturday will be guaranteed a copy of Fashion Sense.

Can I just purchase a $100 gift certificate and still receive the free set?

No, unfortunately the PURCHASE of a gift certificate will not count towards the total amount required to receive the free set.

Can I pay for my order with a gift certificate and still be eligible for Fashion Sense?

Yes.  Using a gift certificate as your method of payment is the same as paying with a credit card, and therefore will pose no issues with your qualifications for the free set.

Will I still earn the free set set if I use Rewards Points on my order?

You can use Rewards Points on your order,  however the final total amount that you pay for at checkout AFTER redeeming the points needs to still be $100 or more.

Can I earn more than one set if I place multiple orders?

This special ordering incentive is limited to one offer per customer.  However, if a second order is placed for the same address and uses an alternate name, it will qualify for a free set as well.

My friend and I usually split one order.  If I place one $200 order for the both of us, can we have two free sets?

No.  There is a limit of one set per order.  You and your friend can place two orders shipped to the same address, but using two different names.  That way each order will receive a set.

I am an international customer.  Are my shipping charges included in reaching the $100 order total required for the free set?

No.  Shipping charges do not count towards the $100 spending requirement.

If there is an item that I planned on purchasing from the store to make my order total $100, and that item is now out of stock, can I get a "raincheck" on that item and still get my order placed today for the free set?

I am afraid we won't be able to accommodate rain checks.  If an item is out of stock that you planned on purchasing, we would suggest selecting something else from your wish list.

I am going to be gone all day.  Is there any way for me to be able to place my order before 7am EST and still receive the free set? 

No. Any order placed before 7am EST will NOT receive the free set.

What if I accidentally place my order before 7am EST or after 11:30pm EST.  Can I email Customer Service and have them add Fashion Sense to my order?

Customer Service will not be able to make special accommodations for customers who do not place their order between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST.  Please be sure to make note of the time difference in relation to your area and get your order in during the designated time.

    Wow – these cards are so beautiful and the set is amazing. My question is that your post talks about EST, but eastern USA is currently under EDT until fall. I want to be sure that I understand it correctly – are you really using EST when it is actually not currently in effect? Thanks!
