Stampin' Up! Flower Shop Bundle Mounting Tips

Scrapbook Page

I have had a wonderfully productive day today finally getting a scrapbook page and almost two cards completed.

Firstly, I am going to share with you my scrapbook page.   For this page I wanted to create something very pretty and girly as this was a special photo from my daughter's graduation photos.  So, I used the new Flower Shop stamp set.  As you can see I have stamped many flowers in the colours of Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding and Island Indigo.  I have then punched them all out and adhered them around the edge of the page and adding dimension by using dimensionals on some.  I didn't add too many other embellishments just a title and some Bakers Twine.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Very Vanilla, Inkpads - Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Island Indigo, Designer Series Paper - Soho Subway, Stamp Sets - Flower Shop, Happy Day, Punch - Pansy, Die - Timeless Type Alphabet Die (now retired), Island Indigo Bakers Twine, Essentials Hardware Clip

Washi Tape & Tape It Stamp Set -- Shannon West

Simple Thank You Cards

I saw a video on the Stampin'Up! You Tube Channel which showed how quick and easy it is to create these thank you cards.  Thought I would give them a try as thank you cards for my Open House Orders and this is what I created.  I think they are fantastic and took very little time to create because I used the new In Colours  which all co-ordinate beautifully.  Love the way these stamps look like Washi Tape.  Next I am going to try stamping them on vellum because they looked so good in the video.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Stamp Sets - Tape It & Simply Sketched (Hostess Set), Inkpads - Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar

By The Tide

Recently I have had to create a couple of cards for the males in my life.  I always find it difficult to think up male themed cards but this one was quite easy using the By The Tide Stamp Set.  A great set for any male, particularly those who do like fishing.  This card is for my brother and he does love his fishing.
Front of Card
I stamped the fish in Smoky Slate and then used my sponge dauber to colour a mix of Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.    I also sponged around the edge with Coastal Cabana to soften the edges.

Stamping Inside of Card

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Stamp Sets - By The Tide, Gorgeous Grunge and a greeting from the retired Henry Says, Inkpads - Smoky Slate, Chocolate Chip, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana
