Some days stamping feels a little bit like work because well, it’s my job. Other days I really enjoy knowing that I am getting paid to stamp. Yesterday was like that. With the arrival of my new catalog product, I took the time yesterday to just stamp.
And to make Simply Pressed Clay flowers. Oh my! These are addicting. And so simple. I started with a basic white flower by simply pressing the clay into the mold that I had lightly powdered with the embossing buddy. Then I stuck the mold in the freezer for 4-5 minutes and out popped the flowers. After letting them dry for a couple of hours, they were ready to use on my cards. Although the bag of clay doesn’t look that big, it’s gonna to go a looong way.
The other new product I really wanted to stamp with was the Flower Shop Bundle.I am the world’s worst gardener. I only have to be in the same room as flowers and they start to wither. There is no way I could ever work in a real flower shop. But with the Flower Shop stamp set and the matching Pansy Punch, I can create wonderful paper flowers. And no worries – these flowers will last forever!
I layered an offset Pansy Punch of the same color under each stamped and punched Flower Shop image in Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette. The Pear Pizzazz leaves were made by cutting a Pansy Punch into five pieces.
The greeting is from the Four You stamp set and was stamped in Smoky Slate. Love, love, love this new color! The matching designer series paper is from the Eastern Elegance package. The final touch of embellishment was the Needlepoint Border embossed pattern above and below the designer series paper.
The most ordered and favorite items from the new catalog for me and my customers are definitely the bundles! Keep reading for more details.
