Create Your Own Flower Shop

Create Your Own Flower Shop

Isn’t it a beautiful thing that as a paper crafter we can create out own flower shop?


Indeed, with a few fun flower stamps we can create beautiful flowers and launch spring into overdrive instead of a snails pace.


Today I felt like a flower shop as I was stamping away with my Flower Shop stamp set.  A set I’ve rarely used but a gorgeous one that has a coordinating punch making my flower arranging easy peasy.

A Crafty Concoction!

I’m still on a pretty hefty mission to find my creative mojo.  Yes, I’m creating.  BUT….it’s been a bit forced lately.  That’s not a feeling I like.  I like the natural creative flow of things.  When it all comes together easily.  Do you know what I mean?  You will see what I mean on Wednesday…. *squealing*

Anyways, I had an array of products on my desk that I wanted to use.  Buttons was the #1!  I have buttons coming out of my ears there are SO many.  For some reason I never use them anymore.  That changed today.

My beautiful buttons came to life.  YAY!

Once I had all my flowers stamped and punched using my Pansy Punch, I placed a coordinating button onto each of the centers.

I also decided to pull out one of my favorite sets Gorgeous Grunge.  I added a few images behind the flowers such as the splatter and diagonal lines.  I loved how that Tangelo Twist ink looked against the blues and yellow.  It screamed Spring/Summer to me.

The small strip of coordinating paper across the card is from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Pack.   It was the perfect addition for this card.  Little tiny polka dots that match the splatter background.

The last thing to add was a greeting and I wanted to go BOLD.  I picked out a greeting from the Bravo stamp set and I loved how it filled the entire space below the flowers.


Can I tell you a secret?


I did a little jig after I created this card.  Yep.  I was that excited.



Because I used products that were screaming to be loved and I felt the creativity flowing.  Not forced.  All natural creativity.





I also found a box of Girl Scout cookies in my pantry.  I just managed to eat 80% of the box while typing this.  I’m pretty sure that was not a great idea.

Fearless of Blendabilities?

Fearless of Blendabilities?

Have you tried our new Alcohol Ink Markers- Stampin’ Blendabilities? If you haven’t yet I hope I can help subside any fear you have with them today.  

Now don’t get too excited yet.  I’m not showing anything EARTH shattering although I did a short dance when I completed this card due to excitement.  

You might be asking yourself why do I WANT to use them?? 

Getting to Know Blendabilities

If you love to color then Blendabilities are going to rock your world.  Each color comes with 3 shades of the color.  It’s pretty simple to follow- Light, Medium & Dark.  
Blendabilities are perfect for blending and shading Stampin’ Up! line art stamp sets.  

What do you need to get started? 

Whisper White cardstock is the perfect paper to get started with.  Stampin’ Up! Whisper White cardstock is SUPER smooth and soaks up the ink from Blendabilities perfectly.  

You will also want to use a Memento Black Ink Pad to stamp the line art.  Once stamped you are ready to start coloring.  

If you are new to using Blendabilities, today’s card will be perfect for you to start with.  

Life in the Forest, Stampin' Up!, Blendabilities

I used the Life in the Forest stamp set to create this card.  Once I stamped the trees and Raccoon I was ready to finish the rest of the card.

Yes… I am going to SHOCK you….

I created a video. 


Today’s video will show you a fun trick using the Filter Paper and a beginner tip on using the Blendabilities.

Now that you have seen a QUICK and easy way of using Blendabilities… it might be time to dive into more tricks using them. 

Bottom line- don’t be afraid and enjoy them. Because they are alcohol base, try coloring your Rhinestones, Pearls and even buttons.
