Stamparatus Technique ~ Set Back Stampin’ Video Tutorial

It is a while since I shared a technique using the Stamparatus and today I have one called Set Back Stampin’ using the Petal Palette Stamp set with the coordinating Petals and More Thinlet Dies.

The Stamparatus is Stampin’ UP!’s latest tool  and an absolute must have for all stampers.  It helps you perfectly align your stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and accurately and gets complete ink coverage – ‘cos you can do a ‘do-over’ as my video today will show.

Petal Palette ~ Best wishes

Petal Palette Stamp set is due to retire at the end of this month – it has been one of my favorites, partly because it has flowers and partly because of all the greetings it has!  I shall be sharing at least one more card with this set before the end of May – but don’t delay in ordering yours – as they are likely to sell out pretty quickly!

As usually happens I turn to my ribbon drawer for choosing my colors – and sitting in there is the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8 Reversible Ribbon – it combines two colors that I would not have put together myself – Stampin’ UP! helps me be so much more creative by presenting these ideas for me to build on!

Meant to Be ~ Z Fold Bridge Valentine Card

Happy Valentine’s Day

Today’s card is one we made during our January card class and it is a variation of the Z fold card, with a cute little 3D embellishment.   My inspiration came from a the Christmas card my dear friend, Elly, of ElleMentry Papercrafting in the UK, sent me.

I chose to use the Meant to Be Bundle today, it has such pretty, decorative hearts allowing me to randomly decorate my card, as well as the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies giving me lots of choice for using decorative die cuts.

I know that not everyone wants or needs to make a valentine card so I created a birthday version using the same supplies but using the Petal Pallete Stamp set and the coordinating Petals and More Thinlet Dies.

Petal Palette Thank You

Petal Palette – I just love this stamp set – I have shared in the past how much I love flowers and using them in my cards and this one has them + a cute little bird and a boatload of useful greetings.  Today’s card uses a number of products from the Petal Passion Suite in the Occasions Catalog.  This suite features mainly black and white with a little flash of silver – so it will go with just about anything  in Stampin’ UP!’s range of colors, today I chose to go with Calypso Coral.
