Today I want to share with you Simple Stamping with ‘Blossoms in Bloom’ stamp set. I’ve had a really good play with this stamp set and just love it. I have a couple of lovely techniques coming up later this week to share with you.
The Blossoms in Bloom Stamp set shows a lovely water colour effect but I wanted to add some extra colour on the petals when I stamps the large floral pattern. Inking up with Blushing Bride and then using the Melon Mambo marker to add some darker colour onto the outsides of the petal. Then I stamped the centre dots in Melon Mambo ink.
I layered onto Magenta Madness Card stock which is one of the new In Colors for 2020-2022. I can’t wait to get my hands on the New In Color inks and hopefully they will arrive this week.
I hope you liked seeing my Simple Stamping with ‘Blossoms in Bloom’ Stamp Set and hope I have inspired you to get creating.
The Artistry Blooms Suite is fresh from the studio meets fresh from the garden. Sweeping brushstrokes and beautifully blended colour gradient mingle with a wildflower bouquet for refined results or a stunning statement. This suite is found in the New Annual Catalogue.
WOW look at all the vibrant colors in this ARTISTRY BLOOMS SUITE that is in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog! The hand drawn cling stamp set with curved sentiments was designed to be stamped across the banner. The beautiful large bouquet die can be layered on top of the stamp bouquet or used on its own.
Also, the banner can be snipped away from the floral image to be used by itself. Vibrantly beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Rainbow Glitter Paper makes beautiful options and gradients. This paper can is very versatile, leaves can be cut from the green, strips can be cut out, and small flowers can be cut from the yellow or pink, all creating endless possibilities.

Last week my family and I were at The Collaroy Centre at a conference for the Christian Camping industry. We have been attending this conference since 2008 and it is run every second year. They run a trade show each time and as my husband runs his own business, Ministry of Tech, we have a stand at the Trade Show. It’s a good way to increase business for the next two years.
This year we decided we were going to do a marketing campaign that would involve a seat drop where we would put something onto each seat for the delegates. We came up with this idea.
As Stampin’ Up! sell the mini pizza boxes,
I thought it was something different than just a flyer dropped onto the seat and would also be something that people would remember. This idea has just grown into something that we didn’t expect.
On the top of the box I have used Tranquil Tide card cut out with a square from the Layering Squares Dies. I printed our logo onto Whisper White card stock and then cut that out using the Layering Squares Dies. We decided that we wanted to go with a theme of puzzle pieces which Stampin’ Up!’s Puzzle Pieces Thinlits and Big Shot Embossing Mats came in handy for. You can see the embossed image of puzzles on the top of the box.
We made up square business cards to go into the boxes with different icons to match the different areas of products & services that we provide.
We wanted to do some giveaways as well to some of the delegates so we came up with the idea of a puzzle that they had to solve. But we mixed up the puzzle pieces to make it a little harder and for them to mingle and network with the other delegates.
We were hoping the giveaways would have taken a couple of days for them to do but they were all completed within 15 minutes. We’ll have to come up with something that will take a lot longer next time around.
