CARD: Orange Blossoms Friendship Card

Hey Friend! I love the sentiment on this card featuring the Orange Blossoms Photopolymer Stamp set from the Annual Catalog. This card is a great example of just how far a great stamp set can get you. For instance, this project doesn’t have any patterned paper beyond what is stamped, the sentiment is stamped, and the Pool Party background is embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a Lace Doiley for some glamour and finished it off with some Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine and White Perfect Accents. This is a great stamp set for all occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, or my favorite, just because. Hey Friend indeed!

CARD: Jar of Love

The Jar of Love card is a continuation of a concept featured in the 2017 Occasions catalog and it was so popular that it appears in the Annual Catalog as well. It’s such a cute stamp set and can be used in soooo many ways! In this project, I used Vellum to simulate the inside of the “jar” and water, but I’ve seen it done with clear window sheets and a shaker card, or a regular mason jar, etc.  This card also features the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, another new favorite. This embossing folder is fantastic for adding texture and variety to a project and can be used for just about any theme or occaision. 

Also in the Annual Catalog is Sharing Sweet Thoughts (below right) another stamp set that also works with the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies. (below left). Center is the Jar of Love stamp set.

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle Brings A Beautiful Bunch of Blessings

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle Features 58 Items and Countless Possibilities

This card was a swap card I made using the Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer Bundle in the Annual Catalog. If you love flowers or want a bundle with a lot of versatility, this is a great one to have. The bundle features the Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set with 37 images to choose from AND the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies with 21 pieces as well. With sentiments for any occasion and countless ways to combine the floral images, this set will help you create beautiful bouquets that live on forever. So you get a ton of sentiments, gorgeous floral images that you can combine in a variety of lovely ways and this is a photopolymer stamp set! 

I am often asked what I prefer, wood block, clear mount or photopolymer stamps. While I believe the choice is up to your personal preference and perhaps the type of project, here is a list of reasons why I choose photopolymer stamps whenever possible:

  • They are totally transparent for perfect image placement.
  • They have just enough “give” to create a perfectly stamped image every time. 
  • They cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
  • They save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).
  • They come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

To sum it up, I guess it comes down to your preference. I tend to want complete control, to know exactly where my stamped image is going to be, so I like Photopolymer. I have seen some stampers who create absolute perfection with wooden mount stamps and others with clear mount stamps. Thankfully, Stampin Up offers all three types, so we never have to do without our favorites!

For this project, I played with a color combination that I wasn’t sure I’d like but I really learned to love. It features two of the newest In Colors, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. I paired those two colors with Pool Party and a color palette was created!

Finally, I stamped some of the images straight onto the Whisper White card front and others I stamped on a scrap of Whisper White and cut them out with the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. The framelits perfectly outline the stamped images and offer a wide variety of floral possibilities! I can’t wait to play with this bundle again! I wanted the colors to really be the main thing to catch the eye, but I do love sparkle, so I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling.

What’s In A Name?

The Oh So Eclectic Bundle Card is Perfectly Named!

The Oh So Eclectic bundle is aptly named. This bundle features the Oh So Eclectic 16 piece stamp set with a wide variety of images from flowers to textures to sayings. The Eclectic Layers Framelits Dies features 13 dies that allow you to create die-cut pieces in record time with just a few turns of the Big Shot handle. The images in the Framelits include the leaves and the pattern cut out of the Whisper White cardstock. The Framelits also include flowers, jewels and other foliage that perfectly match the images in the Oh So Eclectic stamp set, hence the Eclectic reference in the name. It doesn’t have one particular “look” or vibe to the bundle, as many often do, but it is a combination of nature, objects and patterns that somehow all work well together. This is a very simple card to put together but it is very striking and I hope you like it as much as I do!

Here is the color palette for this project:

RemARKably Created Blog Tour – New, New, NEW!

RemARKably Creative Team Blog Tour

 

Welcome to the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour! If you followed the tour, you just came from… Wasn’t her project a stunner?!  This month, we are celebrating all the gorgeous new products available in the new Annual Catalog. It was a tough call to decide what to order first, but the Petal Garden suite on page 57 was my absolute favorite! It features the Graceful Garden stamp set with gorgeous roses and sweet sentiments, the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack that is full of gorgeous floral patterns and stunning colors! There is also the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack that matches the stamps and paper as well as 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon on the Petal Garden Suite colors of Fresh Fig, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Whisper White.

For this project, I stamped the rose image in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive and then watercolored it with Sweet Sugarplum ink.I then masked the rose and stamped that patterned stamp in soft sky and used Wink of Stella to give the rose a bit of shimmer.  I wanted the rose to match the patterned paper and the pattern to reflect the blue in the paper. The card base is Old Olive and I ran the Rich Rich Razzleberry cardstock through the Big Shot using the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry as well and die cut it using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then cut a square to frame it in Old Olive. I used the Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and the new Mini Sequins in Silver. Voila, a card was born that I hope you like! A full product list is below.
