Stamping With The Birds

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… the Bird Ballad Suite! Get ready to swoop this adorable suite up because its beautiful imagery is a showstopper. There are so many ways to make this suite perfect for everyone in your life. With the elegant ribbon and the fun trinkets that come in the suite, all you really need is a pop of color to add just a tad bit of pizzazz, just like we did in the Thank You sample. Watercolor Pencils and Stampin’ Blends would be perfect for that!

But that’s not all you can do! In our Thanks For Being You sample, we used a Kraft Pillow Box and wrapped it up with the cute scalloped lace included in the suite, and made everything pop with the stamps and dies. You could even cut the beautiful images out of the Designer Series Paper just as we did in The World Needs More of You sample to explore your creativity. The sky is the limit with this beautiful suite. Get ready to fly through every occasion with sweet sentiments and gorgeous birds.

The Essence Of Florals

Can’t get enough florals? Neither can we! With the Floral Essence Bundle, you can give the joy of floral to everyone! These stamps and punches are beautiful for any project, whether it’s creating a watercolor project like we did in the Blissful Future sample, or adding some punches and embellishments as in the All Days Are Beautiful sample. Or if you really want to get into the flower power, you can recreate the tin in the sample with one of our copper tins, Organdy Striped Ribbon, and the Perennial Flower Punch—and all of these are included in the Perennial Essence Suite! You can find it on pages 106 – 108 in the catalog.

The Story Of A Blossom

Picture this: a tiny seedling on the verge of breaking through the soil. Can you see it? Now water it with affection and good vibes. What do you have after a little bit of time and a whole lot of love? A blossom—bold and beautiful and blooming!

Now imagine that in a stamp set. With the Bloom & Grow Bundle (#151069), you can see the entire story of the blossom: from tiny seedlings to beautiful bouquets. Then sprinkle in some encouraging sentiments, and you’ve got a card for everyone you love!

If you’re just beginning on your stamping journey, you can use these gorgeous stamps to create a patterned look for a simple but beautiful project as we did in our You Are Simply Wonderful sample, or if you want to step it up a notch, try tinkering with the dies and a blender pen, as we did in the Thanks sample. For all of you avid stampers, roll up your sleeves and add this bundle and some ribbon to a treat bag to make the cute bag you can see in the samples. There are so many options with this bundle!

Over the Moon

I made this card at Gloria Helmbrecht’s Downline Meeting using the Over The Moon Stamp Set, Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes and Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (retired).
