Botanical Blooms For You

What do you think of these gorgeous botanical blooms? In February here in Wisconsin we have lots of snow with no hint yet of any flowers. Seeing this pretty flower and dainty foliage is definitely turning my thoughts to gardening and thoughts of spring.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Botanical Blooms Bundle

Thats one fancy flower die. The flower is made from one die and it comes out as a single piece but the petals are partially cut so you can make them lift up.  Its a really pretty effect

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Botanical Blooms Bundle

The product used on this card is the Botanical Bundle.  The interesting thing is that not only do the stamp set and dies match . . . but with this bundle the Designer paper is meant to be stamped on and die cut. This card has so much going on its hard to describe it all.  You know what, just watch this quick video (3:35) and you'll get the idea how this product bundle all works together.



This product list shows individual prices for the stamp set and die. You can also bundle the product to save 15%.  By the way, the reason the "Just for You" stamp set has no price listed is because its a free item when you place a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.






Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby. There are also ordering links under my signature.

Itty Bitty Accents Heart Fits the Happy Hearts Folder

Are you looking for a way to incorporate lots of hearts into a Valentine or Wedding Card?  Did you know the Heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Pack fits exactly in the heart shape from the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder. Yay! Whoohoo! So cool for Weddings, Anniversaries and Valentines. 


Here's a closer look - perfect shape and size right?

        

Stampin'UP! actually does a great job coordinating product. The thing that first brought me to Stampin'UP! was all the color coordinated product, its really important to me to have all my colored product match: inks, paper, buttons, ribbon . . .  See how the ribbon below  is a perfect match for the paper color

This photo shows another way Stampin'UP! coordinates product. The words from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp set are perfectly sized to fit in the Word Window Punch. And with 24 different sentiments to choose from this set can work for just about any occasion you need.

Color Coordinated . . . Size Coordinated . . . Shape Coordinated . . . 
My "heart is happy" now with one more reason to love how Stampin'UP! coordinates product
the Itty Bitty Accents Punches and Happy Heart embossing folder combo,

Here's a list of all the product used on this card:

How to Color Glimmer Paper

Glimmer paper is awesome! It can add a really special bit of sparkle to your projects. Check out this project with a sparkly red rose.

card made with Stampin'UP!'s Rose Wonder Stamps and Rose Garden Die on Glimmer Paper
I started with Very Vanilla card stock. The black layer started as a rectangle 1/4" smaller, 4" x 5-1/4" that I cut on a diagonal.

And that gorgeous sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Stamp set. The sentiments in that set are such a beautiful font, I love the style lettering!


What do you think of that sparkly red rose?


Stampin'UP! sells glimmer paper in 4 basic colors:   Red - Silver - Gold - and - White.
And this spring, the new Occasions catalog also offers us a pink (Blushing Bride) Glimmer paper.



HELPFUL HINT:  You'll have more success die cutting glimmer paper if you cut from the back side. The glitter on the front is challenging for the waver thin dies to cut through.  Of course if its a word you need to cut from the front.

Did you know you can color the white (Dazzling Diamonds) Glimmer paper? 

I  created the green glimmer paper for this card  myself.  You can use a variety of tools on glimmer paper. I used Aquapainters on this card, but on past projects I've colored glimmer paper successfully with all of the following:
**markers
In fact you can even heat emboss glimmer paper - but be careful because the paper has a plastic backing.

Isn't it fun that you can make Glimmer Paper now in any color you want. 
One more way to ensure your projects are color coordinated.
