Simple Stamping with Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set - Stampin' Up!

 Hey there stampers & crafters!

Thanks again for heading over to my crafty corner of the web!

Today I have been playing with a new stamp set (for me) and have been enjoying a bit of Sunday evening simple stamping - the best way to combat those Sunday evening blues!

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set is in our annual catalogue, it's not a new set however I only just purchased it myself... and to be honest I have no idea why I waited so long! It's amazing!

There's also a fabulous dragonfly punch which will quickly and easily cut out the dragonflies - what more could you ask for?

So below are my simple cards, along with a video tutorial for you to follow along, and as usual, head over to my online store HERE to get your hands on these products yourself!

Split Panel Card - feat. Handsomely Suited Stamp Set and Suit & Tie dies by Stampin' Up!

Hey friends! I hope you're all having an amazing crafty weekend so far!

I've been playing with the wonderfully versatile 'Well Suited' suite of products and today I have created this split panel card to share with you.

There's also a how-to video on YouTube for you to easily recreate this card at home!

The Well Suited suite is in the January-June mini catalogue which is due to retire at the end of June. While the stamp set and coordinating die set are carrying over, the designer series paper and twine combo pack are sadly retiring. You will also not be able to take advantage of the bundle discount after June - so if this is on your wish list you'd better be quick!

Art In Bloom Bundle - Stampin' Up!®

Oh my goodness! Stampin' Up have absolutely blown my mind with this AMAZING bundle! 

The Art In Bloom bundle has captured my attention for the past few days and I'm so excited to share with you the first two cards I have created - the first two of many more to come!

When I first had a play with the stamp set I absolutely LOVED the line images, and they just screamed black and white to me. So I decided to make these black and white cards with a POP of colour.

Magenta Madness and Coastal Cabana are two amazing colours so I thought these perfect to use on my cards. With the Magenta Madness card, you may notice a little trick with the embellishments - where did those perfect little magenta pearls come from?? Well, I have coloured our Pearl Basic Jewels with the Magenta Madness Stampin' Blend alcohol marker. You can actually create embellishments of any colour using this technique.

Now lets talk about how this amazing bundle works, and why I love it so much! The bundle contains a stamp set, embossing folder and dies. 

As mentioned, the stamp set has wonderful line images of floral elements, infill stamps for the flowers and leaves, as well as super cute pattern stamps for creating background patterns. OH, and the sentiments are all wonderful!

Next up, the embossing folder. The Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is a new concept by Stampin' Up. The embossing folder can be used alone and is incredibly detailed. However it can also pair with a die that will cut and emboss the flower images at one time! MIND BLOWN!

Finally, the die set also contains some label dies and additional foliage elements.

This bundle really does have it all! You can create such amazing projects with these products and I'm so excited to keep playing and creating. Watch this space for some more crafty inspiration using the Art In Bloom Bundle.
