Stamp ‘n’ Hop April Blog Hop

Today I am taking part in a Stamp ‘N Hop with other Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators of all skill levels.  In this month’s blog hop we are showing our favourite stamp set which is on the current retiring list.  The stamp set I have chosen is one of the first sets I bought as a Stampin’ Up! customer.  It is Flower Shop and is a wonderful set of 5 different stamps that can be punched out using the Pansy Punch which is also retiring this year.

I have already used this stamp set in another blog hop this week but wanted to show you how versatile this stamp set and other Stampin’ Up stamp sets can be by using stamps to create your very own paper.

I started off with a 13 x 13 cm square of Whisper White cardstock and stamped over it with Sweet Sugarplum ink the flower.  Then using Wild Wasabi ink I stamped the small flowers from the Number of Years stamp set.   This paper was then cut into the following sizes using the Trimmer to cut the squares from the inside of the card stock.

The next step is to cut 13cm, 10cm and 7cm squares from Sweet Sugarplum card stock and mount the printed card stock onto them.  These were then stuck to a Basic Black 14cm square card base.

To finish off the card I stamped a sentiment from the Label Me Pretty stamp set using Archival Basic Black ink and mounted this onto a punched out flower using the Pansy Punch and Sweet Sugarplum card stock.

I have tried today to show you that we have some amazing products retiring soon.  There are of course some equally amazing products replacing those that are retiring and I hope to be able to share these with you very shortly.

Colour Combo April Blog Hop

 

 

Today I am taking part in another colour challenge, with other Independent Demonstrators, as part of the Colour Combo Blog Hop.  I am based in Cambridgeshire.  In this month’s blog we have been given certain colours to use.

The colours for this Blog Hop are:  Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim and Pacific Point.

Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim are two of the 2016-2018 In Colors and will be retiring at the end of May 2018.

Sometimes after a busy day at work it is nice to come home and retire to my craft room to relax.  Today was such a day and I decided to use of my favourite stamp sets – Flower Shop.  It comes with a matching punch – Pansy Punch.  The Flower Shop stamp set has 5 different flower stamps and today I have chosen to use one that has not been used as much as the others.

One thing I love about Stampin’ Up! is that all the products match, from card stock to ink pads and marker pens.

Here is the card I came up with:

For the base I chose Dapper Denim and mounted a Whisper White base on top of it.  The next layer is Pacific Point, this is a lovely bright blue and to break up the Pacific Point card stock I added a Sweet Sugarplum strip.

I then stamped and punched two flowers in each colour and stuck one on top of the other to make a double flower.  These were placed randomly on the card base.

As I have mentioned above I love how Stampin’ Up! matches their products.  I chose a sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and decided to use matching Marker Pens to colour in the stamp using the 3 colours.  This was then stamped onto Whisper White card stock and backed using Dapper Denim as a border using the Pretty Label punch.

I hope you have enjoyed the card that I have shared with you today.  We do appreciate reading your comments on our posts.
