Bloom For You + Fun Flower Punch = Perfect Match

Published by under cards | Dec 07 2014

Thank You For Caring card

The Bloom For You stamp (page 139 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue) and its matching Fun Flower punch (p219) are a match made in paper craft heaven!

With only two items you can make a range of cut Bloom For You flowers in any colour you want. Great for making 3D flowers and paper bouquets, as an element on a card or scrapbook page, and because these are a fairly decent size they make great gift tags too. Bloom For You stamp & Fun Flower punch

To make these Bloom For You flowers  I used a couple of extra co-ordinating punches that I had on hand, and they really helped to finish the flower nicely withOUT any hand cutting. Yay for that!

The other punches I used were the small (2.2cm) Scallop Circle Punch and the half inch circle punch, all available from my Stampin’ Up! online store. To assemble, it was simply a matter of stamping the flowers a number of times in the different coloured Stampin’ Up! classic inks and then punching out the required pieces. Layer the pieces with a Stampin’ Dimensionals in between or just some adhesive.

Note: The colours used on the card at the top of this page are from the 2014-2016 In Color range –  Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss – all on a Crumb Cake note card. The panel of patterned paper is from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper pack.

Happy stamping,

Stampin’ Up! Get Your Santa On

Published by under cards | Nov 04 2014

Get Your Santa On - Christmas cards (www.simonebartrum.com)Back in September our Stampin’ Up! team members were invited to join a Christmas card swap.

As always, it was incredibly inspirational.

I especially loved a design by Emma Calleja which featured the cutie Get Your Santa On set. I hadn’t bought it at that stage, but that soon changed after I saw Emma’s adorable card which featured little flags punched from the Trim The Tree paper stack using the Banner punch. This is my version of it:

Get Your Santa On It prompted me to continue the theme by using other feature images in the set, and different embossing folders. Get Your Santa On Get Your Santa On At only AUD$27.95 Get Your Santa On is not only a versatile stamp set, but great value too.   Get Your Santa On - www.simonebartrum.stampinup.net Images copyright Stampin’ Up!® 

 

I got my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities out for this project. The shading which is part of the stamped image makes it SUPER EASY to colour. I just used the medium or dark Blendabilities marker where ever there were shade lines, and light for the rest. The Dazzling Details glitter adhesive finished off the ‘fur’ on Santa’s coat. That’s a great little product at only $4.50 and will last for ages. Get Your Santa On

 

How are you going with your Christmas cards?

We’re in November now… where is the year going! Happy stamping,
