Similar but Different (Birthday Blooms)

Hi Everyone, I hope you are ready to see a LOT of cards today. They are all ‘similar but different’. I make a lot of cards this way because I am always thinking about what the design might look like if I changed the colour, or the colouring medium, or the sentiment, or even the card orientation (portrait or landscape). I don’t always share all of my different combinations but I have decided to do so today as I want to show that even with one basic design there are countless ways we can change it up. I know I am guilty of using a stamp set once and then moving onto the next thing, but I think if we really stop and just PLAY with our stamps we can create any number of amazing card designs. I know I love when I see people returning to stamp sets again and again to share new designs and techniques.

The cards I am sharing today are all quite similar, as I have said, but I think you can see how I have only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to how you can use the stamp set Birthday Blooms. I *love* the Birthday Blooms stamp set. Colouring the main floral image brings me great joy. I find it relaxing to stamp up a bunch of images and then just play with colours and colouring mediums. I hope you find some inspiration from the following thirteen cards! WOW!

Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue – Pre-order Reveal

With the launch of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue only a few short weeks away, there is a lot of excitement about the new things which are coming. One of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is that we not only get to see inside the new catalogue before it is officially released, we are also able to pre-order a selection of these new items. I had to take advantage and placed my pre-order last week. Now that it has arrived I am thrilled to share some of these fabulous items with you. I’ve put together a little video so you can actually have a closer look at the items I received.

Here’s the video…

Did you have a favourite from the pre-order? I’ve already started to create with the Bright Wishes stamp set. The well is gorgeous! I’m also planning to work with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies to show you just some of the many designs you can come up with.
It’s going to be such a great must-have set, especially when you combine it with the Layering Circle Framelits dies. I foresee a lot of creating coming for me…and I cannot wait!

Even though I cannot show you the inside of the catalogue, I can show you the front cover. Isn’t it pretty? You’ll love what is inside – something for everything. Don’t forget it goes live on June 1, 2017.

Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue

Whilst we are all excited about the new releases, don’t forget time is ticking on the current catalogue as it is retiring on 31st May, 2017. If you are wishing to grab a few things before the catalogue finishes, now is the time. Don’t forget some items have been discounted so you just might find yourself with a bargain!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Just For You (Birthday Blooms/Stampin’ Up!)

Hi Everyone, the Birthday Blooms stamp set is still one of my favourite in the current 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I have made a LOT of cards using this stamp set. I have posted some of my card designs in earlier posts but there are a lot more which are just variations of the same design. I’ve decided to share them all over the next few posts as I think they go a long way to showing how just a different sentiment stamp or a change in the colours used, creates variety. Don’t forget that we end up sending the cards to different people so it doesn’t matter how similar, or different, they are. Just do what you love!

So let’s get started.

Here’s the first card…
Just For You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Watercolor Wings (139424); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.
Here’s the next card…
Thank You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Endless Thanks (138796), Diagonal Stripe (141917); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.
Here’s the final card…
Just For You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Watercolor Wings (139424); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad, Whisper White Craft Ink; White Embossing Powder; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.

I hope the above cards have encouraged you to dig out your favourite stamp set and play. Vary a few features such as the colour or sentiment and just see where you end up.

Don’t forget to check out the Retiring List today as it might be the last chance you get to grab one of your favourites in the current catalogue. Some items are selling out fast!
