Must be the variable weather we’re having (it can’t decide if it’s supposed to be sunny or cloudy), because I’m a bit under today.
So, I’ll just share some Stampin’ Up! videos for some of my favorite new suites.
Delightfully Detailed Suite:
Love the ribbon and laser cut designer paper.
Rooted in Nature:
Great complement to Lovely as a Tree (which has been in the catalog for over 10 years!)
Want to see a project using the stamp set from the Rooted in Nature suite? Here’s one from Stampin’ Up!
I’m not sure how or why it happened… I now “need” a little bit of coffee (okay, an espresso drink, really), to get moving in the morning. On days I go to work without one, I feel like I’m in molasses. Ugh.
So, I must say I was terribly glad that my local provider was open yesterday morning.
I just had to make a card.
Stamp Set: Blooms and Wishes (retiring), Coffee Cups
Ink: Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White thick, Call Me Clover (coming June 1), Mint Macaron (returning June 1), Crumb Cake
Accessories: Apron builder framelits, Cookie Cutter builder punch
I paper pieced the coffee cup. I cut the cup out twice from Whisper White thick. The first die cut is used as the base of the cup, the second was used for the coffee lid. The sleeve is trimmed from a Crumb Cake die cut. The white pieces were lightly sponged with Smoky Slate. The Crumb Cake pieces was sponged with Crumb Cake.
The heart on the apron is from the Cookie Cutter builder punch. If I weren’t so lazy, I would have heat embossed the scribble heart from the Coffee Cups stamp set instead (since the logo of my local shop is white and green).
Retiring Stamp sets are now “while supplies last”, and tomorrow is the last day to order from the retiring list. Get your hands on Blooms and Wishes now!
I wish I had gotten this stamp set sooner, just for the sentiment alone! 🙂 The flowers are really pretty, too. I was intimidated by this set because I had a similar one that didn’t work well with my brain. Turns out, once I got this one, I liked it so much better! It’s a recent purchase, which explains why you haven’t seen me post anything with it yet.
I have seen samples in which the larger flower is used for poinsettia. Change your color to make a different flower. Pretty cool.
I played with adding dots with a coordinating marker to add texture/detail. Here is my “play” sheet. Never did make it to a finished project… don’t you hate that?
