I’m so in love with this new Sale-a-Bration exclusive Stamp set. It’s the Tags in Bloom stamp set and it’s available for free when you spend $180 on regular products. It’s a stretch $$-wise but its so worth it. I really love how this stamp set coordinate with two new punches featured on page 41 of the Mini catalogue – the Label Me Pretty punch and the Label Me Fancy punch.
Take a look…
And here are the punches….
The set is constructed in a way which allows you to create many different looks pending how you feel like creating. You can keep it quick and easy and use the different pieces to colour the flowers or you can stamp the outline and colour it however you like – by water colouring or pencils or here like I have with Stampin’ Blends.
I embossed a piece of cardstock for the background – here I used the new and gorgeous Parisian Flourish embossing folder from the Parisian Blossoms suite, new in the Mini catalogue. I adhere this to a black cardbase, then over layed a strip of Golden Honey Designer Paper, another SAB exclusive free item.
Keeping things simple like this allows for creating quickly and you can swap out colours and paper design to adapt to many different occasions.
Then I set about creating my feature element – first stamping the large label stamp in Memento Black ink. I coloured the cute little flowers that adorn one corner with Stampin’ Blends – alcohol markers. Use light and dark shades of colours to blend to create highlights and shadows. To add some additional highlights, I used the colour lifter to push the colour out. To add some sparkle, I dabbed some Wink of Stella over the flowers.
I fussy cut the label image to create a stand alone element and used dimensionals to adhere it. I stamped the border shape and sentiment from the stamp set and used the coordinating the Label Me Lovely punch to punch out the shape and adhere it over the label element.
These punches feature in March’s Online classes coming soon. Stay tuned…
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
