I have decided to continue last week’s Tool of the Week. Stampin’ Up! has so many great framelits/thinlit that I feel we have only scratched the surface. So I hope I am not boring you with this tool, but I feel we have so many cards that we can make stand out.
I chose for today to use Botanical Blooms with Lots of Labels. Using the framelit Lots of Labels can really frame your object such as flowers. Anyone can be an expert making these flowers with your Botanical Builders Framelit Dies. It is has simple as running it through your Big Shot. You can use your sponge dauber where you choose such as on the leaves which is what I did. I have to tell you this is one of my most favorite flowers to do. The size is perfect and easy plus the many ways to use them in your designs.
Stamp Set: Botanical Blooms, Perfect Pairings
Look at all the different stamps in this set. You have flowers and leaves and some accents to use.
Rather than use a yellow shade for the center I opted for a another pink shade which was Rose Red. I think this color is more pink than red so it shows off the center better. What is your favorite color combination? You can put it in the comment section below. I think that playing around with the different colors Stampin’ Up! offers is half the fun. It can be surprising when a color works that we don’t expect.
Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi
Embellishment: Pearl Basic Jewels, Dimensionals
Sometimes I use rhinestones and other times I use pearls. Stampin’ Up! provides us different sizes. I think pearls add a certain elegance to the cards. In this case the flower’s center.
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Sometimes I don’t want to break and introduce another color such as black for the words. I would rather keep everything simple by using the colors introduced. The question you always need to ask can they see it? Sometimes a color is too fade.
Accessories: Botanical Builders Framelit Dies, Lots of Labels Framelits, Honeycomb, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber
Using the framelit makes our lives of creating so easy. It is matter of choosing our wonderful selection of cardstock.
