Country Bouquet in Gold

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s January blog hop. Prepare to be inspired! We’re so glad you joined us! This month, we feature Valentine cards and projects. Be sure to visit all of the participating stampers and leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontent. You could win a Take Your Pick Tool. 

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with Stampin’ Up!’s Country Bouquet Bundle (buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10 percent). The punch has been so popular, it’s on backorder for a bit, but the stamp set itself is a winner. Especially if you want to make a variety of Valentine cards. Find the bundle and the suite beginning on page 8 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

Country Bouquet in Gold

Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet Stamp Set

The large heart image features a two-step stamping technique. You can choose two coordinating colors to create the heart, or do like me and heat emboss both images with gold embossing powder. I love how it turned out. It makes a great handmade Valentine card for a loved one.

A few details:

  • Used Stampin’ Up!’s Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the first three layers of Very Vanilla and Petal Pink card stock
  • Heat embossed the heart and sentiment with gold embossing powder, using the Stampartus to help me best position both stamps of the image.
  • Colored baker’s twine with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends
  • Added the Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Embossed the bottom Very Vanilla layer with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder

Friendly Flamingo Mirror Technique

Be sure to watch the video below to learn about the Friendly Flamingo Mirror Technique.

Frinedly Flamingo Mirror Technique

Stampin’ Up!’s Stamparatus, a unique stamp positioning tool, is a must-have for any craft room. Its uses are many and varied. It:

  • helps you get the image straight every time;
  • allows you to re-stamp an image if it’s not dark enough or not all of it appeared;
  • makes it easy to create multiples quickly and easily;
  • is gentle on arthritic hands; and
  • lends itself to a variety of fun techniques such a hinge-step stamping, two-step stamping, the mirror/reflection technique and more.

Today’s card features the Friendly Flamingo stamp set and the Stamparatus. It’s a Valentine/love card using the mirror/reflection technique. Be sure to watch the attached video below.
