Four Season Floral

July 9, 2020

Today I want to share with you a lovely bundle from the Beginner Brochure.  This brochure runs concurrently with the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue and features some fantastic stamps and bundles for anyone who is just getting started with stamping and Stampin’ Up!   This particular bundle includes the Four Season Floral stamp set and ten  3″ x 4″ Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards, Card Bases and co-ordinating envelopes.  The bundle also includes two Stampin’ Spots in Magenta Madness and Just Jade (two of the new in-colours) as well as a “C” block to mount your stamps and a Stampin’ Seal to put your cards together.

So to give you an idea of what you can create, I used both sides of each of the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More cards included in the bundle and the stamps and ink from the bundle to create some sweet little cards.

Not only are the cards gorgeous but the envelopes have been lined with some gorgeous Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper to make them extra-special as well.

I shared this bundle on my Facebook Live yesterday and instead of showing how to create the cards using the Memories and More Cards supplied in the bundle, I created some Whisper White Note Cards to show the process of creating using only the two ink colours and images from the Four Season Floral stamp set.  The first Note Card uses the daisy image and to give it colour I used the Magenta Madness Stampin’ Spot to add colour to the flower and the Just Jade Stampin’ Spot to add colour to the stem and leaves.  Stampin’ Spots make it very easy to add colour to a specific area of a stamp like this one. I stamped the image twice onto the Whisper White Note Card and added the “happy birthday” from the Four Season Floral stamp set using the Just Jade Stampin’ Spot.  I also decorated the envelope with the same floral image.  Simple!   To use the larger floral images and just the two colours was not quite as simple.  For these two cards, I stamped the whole image onto the Whisper White Note Card twice using the Just Jade Stampin’ Spot.  I also stamped the greeting using the same ink.  I stamped the whole flower onto scrap Whisper White card using Magenta Madness ink and fussy cut just the flowers and attached them over the Just Jade image.  Kind of sweet and not much more work or even supplies.

I love that by taking the supplies in the bundle and slowly adding extra product such as the Whisper White Note Cards, the bundle will keep you creating for quite a while.  I have some ideas for stepping up this bundle to add in more product from the Flowers For Every Season Bundle to slowly build your crafting supplies and give a beginner stamper more creative opportunities.

Bye for now,

Kris
