Stampin Up Botanical Blooms white on white

Morning everyone happy Sunday. So I wonder what you all get up to at the weekends? For me it is a time to spend with my families and their wonderful children. Yes I am blessed with two sons and daughter in laws and six wonderful grandchildren under 10 years old. Families are such a blessing and the joy that they all bring is something I treasure always. I also as you all know am an avid crafter and so every weekend I always take time to craft. This is a way for me to relax and completely lose myself in making something beautiful from paper and cardstock.

The Stampin Up botanical blooms bundle is my absolute favourite as there are so many flower stamps and dies that are to be honest quite old fashioned and traditional. Which is fine for certain projects but the botanical blooms is fresh and quite modern. The intricate fern die is quite ingenious, who would have thought a die could produce such a fine leaf and with the new metal plate and die brush cutting out is a breeze too. The flowers are gorgeous and two of them the petals pop up giving fab dimension. Stampin Up really is at the cutting edge of die technology and these certainly do not disappoint.

So I have used some fab card stocks in wonderful vibrant and tonal colours but I thought I would show you all that a white on white with a little smoky slate for the stamens really makes a wonderful card suitable for weddings anniversaries or just because.

I embossed a background using the Stampin Up dots embossing folder to add more texture and then just buillt up the flowers and leaves using dimensionals. I haven't put a sentiment on as I can do this later but it kinda stands alone without quite well.

As you all know I am an Independent Stampin Up demonstrator and as such if you purchase any Stampin Up products it would be great if you used me as your demonstrator of choice. Now I am a bit of a dinosaur with modern technology so I haven't got all the bells and whistles and links etc on my blog because I haven't got a clue how to do this lol. I'm a crafter not a techie however finding the official Stampin up website is quite easy and then it's just about who you choose as your demonstrator when you order and it would be great if you chose me Jane Allmark. Thank you all so much for following my blog it is very much appreciated and makes me smile and want to post more when I see how many of you are reading it 😊
