Flower-Patch-Bookmark Card

I have seen soooo many great cards using the Flower Fair stamp set.  And of course Stampin’ Up! has made it super easy to create layering by giving us a matching Flower Flair  framelit set.  And the best news is it’s available as a bundle for a 15% savings all year long.

This is a unique card because it also has a bookmark in it that can be detached so it’s not just a card, it’s a gift too!


Stampers Clubhouse Tips:

I used the Perforating Blade with the Rotary Arm Attachment to my paper cutter to create the ‘tear off’ portion for tag.Flower-Patch-Bookmark Card

To make the tag top I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch by sliding the cardstock over and past the paper guides then trimmed off the odd pieces left once it was punched.

Did you see the Big Shot Special Offer?

Stampers Clubhouse Colors:

Cardstock:  Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks:  Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Hello Honey, Mossy Mellow, Pear Pizzazz

I know it’s early yet but it sure does take the stress away and makes for some fun stamping when I get started sooner.   The Holiday catalog comes out in August and it’s always an exciting time.  My customers should start receiving their personal copy in the mail starting next week.  This year’s has to be my favorite so far.

Another thing that is changing this month is the Christmas sets and accessories from last years will the fully retired so now is the time to get them. 

Here are a few cards made with some of those items.  The snowflakes were my fav!

I know it’s still summer but like most scrapbooking the pages don’t always  get done during the current season.  In fact we are sometimes months behind but hey that’s all good because it also helps us go down memory lane. 

October 2013 scrapbook layout

I have a very thoughtful page I actually made a few months ago and still need to get some photos on. I hope this will inspire you to make your own fall pages and it will either help you with getting your photos from a previous fall out or you will be ahead of the game this fall.

My husband wanted to take a buddies wife a thank you for keeping her husband away for a few evenings in row for some work on his boat and asked if I would make a simple bottle of win not so simple anymore.  This wine bottle tag was quick & easy stamping which I really needed since he needed it in a snap and I was on my way to a class.

Flower Shop wine bottle tag
I still had some of that lovely Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon that retired this year and so miss it.  I sure hope it shows up in Stampin’ Up!’s Clearance Rack so I can get some more.  I embossed the flower with gold embossing powder popped it onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I punched with the amazing Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added a splash more pizazz with some Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and poof  it was done.

I’m pretty sure my husband was forgiven.

I think this has become my go to stamp set.  It’s called Endless Birthday Wishes.  Very appropriate.  There are just so many greetings in it.

Endless Birthday Wishes

I was really worried when I ordered the Lullaby Designer Paper but let me just say I have yet to make a baby card with it yet.   I love the color combinations and the patterns.

What do you think about those super cute blingy stars.  Sequins to be exact.  What a great way to embellish.  LOVE it!

The stamp set is one of Stampin’ Up!’s photopolymer sets so it was super easy to line up the words too.

For some reason many of us really struggle with masculine cards but let me tell you the new Travler Stamp Set is perfect!

I also played around with one of the new punches, Scalloped Tag Topper punch, to create a unique opening.  By sliding the cardstock over the paper guides in that punch I was able to punch the scallop shape and then trim off the excess next to it.  I’ll have a video later this week on it.

Traveler stamp set

Traveler fancy fold open    Here you can see that the inside of the card is nicely finished too.
