In Bloom Bundle

Do you like flowers as much as I do?  I have something a little different for you. 

Whether in the ground, sitting in a vase or made from paper... I just simply love flowers.  Any kind too!   The funny thing is, if I have a preference... I prefer roses in my garden (I have 6 beautiful rose plants) but I do not prefer roses in an arrangement.  I love my arrangements to be a mix of daisies, daffodils, carnations, Gerber daisies, hydrangeas, eucalyptus, sprays, etc.   They just bring a smile to my face.  

I received these tulips about 2 weeks ago.  And purple!!!  Boy, does this person know me or what?


I wanted to share the "IN BLOOM BUNDLE" with you.  These 21 unique stamps and 25 dies have several different floral patterns, almost like we have not offered before.  I know what you are saying, Stampin' up! offers a lot of floral stamps and dies.  But I think these are just a little unique, so let's take a look, also at how pretty these cards came out.  Look at all the color.   You can make single floral cards or a full bouquet!  Possibilities are just about endless.

February 2021 - Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday - Episode 51:  February 2021 - Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

I am so excited for my Savi Sunday Video this week showing you 5 Additional Projects for this months Paper Pumpkin kit

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit that comes right to your mailbox each month.  Below you will see in my product list the different subscriptions options you have.  Also, you can start and pause when you like.  Stampin' Up! sends a monthly reminder. 

February's Kit was called Bouquet of Hope.  A beautiful kit that makes 3 each of the following designs. 


But I wanted to share some alternative projects making the cards my own with only adding a few pieces of other cardstock.

Card 1 & 2:  I took the Paper Pumpkin card base that is Rococo Rose and I cut in half.  One of those halves, I then cut in half again.  I adhered these to Basic Black card base cardstock 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and built the rest of cards with items from the Paper Pumpkin kit.


Card 3: is the Just Jade stripped Paper Pumpkin card base but I reversed the card so the strips are on the side.  I stamped the floral image


Cards 4 & 5:  I took a the Paper Pumpkin Card and cut in half, and cut them down to 4 x 5-1/4" then mounted to Rococo Rose cardstock. 


I just loved coming up with alternatives for this month's kit. 

INSPIRATION TIP:  Make sure to watch my VIDEO to see where I got those black strips from!!!!
