Climbing Orchids Stamp Class

Morning Everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely weather.  We had a couple of rainy days here so a little break from watering our allotment!
My youngest passed his Degree in Mathematics so I have been a taxi driver to interviews since the beginning of this week.

Back to crafting, We used the beautiful Climbing Orchids Bundle for this week's Stamp Classes.  Oh its so lovely to stamp with.  I also used the single Happy Birthday stamp called the Stylized Birthday.

We made extra large cards for a change, or this class has three different sized cards plus a huge and and I mean huge 6" x 6" matching gift box.

I chose a Colour combination of Tranquil Tide, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and Sweet sugarplum.

We mixed up the stamping as well.  The stamp set has to different orchids so why not try out the other design as well.


If you want to play along the instructions are on the right hand side,
All my class instructions have centimetres and inches included.

Thanks for looking,

Stampin' UP! Colour Coordination

Good Morning,

Some colour inspiration for you this morning. 
 Stampin' UP! has such a range of colour possibilities!

My downline Jill Lackford made one of these frames using the new daisy punch last week and one by one the rest of our Bloomin' Buds team are making one.  The frames are from the range.

If you look on page 183 of our main catalogue you will find the list of all the colours of cardstock.  Our cardstock is available in two sizes A4 or 12" x 12" to suit your crafting needs.  It's dyed all the way through, acid and lignin free.  
Stampin' Up! have a variety of colours in 5 collections called Brights, Subtles, Regals, Neutral and In Colours.  Pick them from the collections or mix and match them for different looks.

Our ink pads are firm foam pads with flip-top lids so the ink stores upside down, making sure the ink is always ready to use.  The ink is fast drying, dye based and acid free.

We have reinkers for all our inkpads, which can also be used for colouring techniques like spritzing.

We have Ribbon, Trims, Designer series paper all coordinate with each of the Stampin' Up Colours.

What's your favourite colour?
