{How to make One sheet Wonder bookmarks with Stampin' Up! Very Vintage stamps}

Hi there stampers, 
sorry I've not blogged for a few days.  My family and I went away last week to a Christian family Conference. We go every year and have lots of fun, the week is over far too soon.

Here are some bookmarks I made using the One Sheet Wonder technique that you know I love.  It's so easy to get wonderful results.  If you haven't had a go I encourage you to ink up your favourite stamps and get stamping!

LOVE this new host set, it's called Very Vintage, it has some really pretty elements that can be used on their own or combined with other sets.   forgot to take a photo before I stamped the sentiments on, I'm sorry they're not Stampin' Up! stamps.


Here is a sped up video with some pretty music.
Scroll down to see the list of all the items and colours I used.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Tropical Chic}

Such fun to join in with this blog hop today. 


The focus is on the Tropical Escape Suite which can be found here.

It's a fabulous fresh collection full of lovely leaf shapes, great for people who like making floral cards... ahem me!

I used 3 sheets from the paper collection... oooh remember you can earn a free pack of DSP when you buy 3 packs - until the end of the month.

Using the stamps and dies I cut out a pile of leaves and flowers which made assembling the cards very easy.





Here is a video of the process


After I made the card, I had a play with the square leaf die to decorate a little bag, and made a decorative peg to hold the top together.



Have a look at the other creations from some wonderful demonstrators from around the world.

{Pop of Petals Stamp and Punch set - Love it!}

It feels a little bit like Christmas when the new Stampin Up! catalogue comes out each year.  When I was a child, my father would take great care to purchase gifts that he knew I would love, play with and get enjoyment from using - like my first set of artist watercolour pencils.  sometimes there would be so many things I wouldn't know what to use first.

This stamp set and punch where the first to go on my list when I had the new catalogue.  As you probably know (if you have followed me for a while), I love all things floral, o having a new flower stamp and punch to play with filled me with great delight.  What I did not anticipate was how much I would love it - the set is so well designed.  It contains such a variation of textures and images.  Having these options make it so easy to use as a set or combined with other images.

Purchasing the bundle means you get 10% off the total.  I think this is such a great value for money set coming in at £33.25


It is useful to limit the colour palette when getting to know a set, here are the colours I used for the cards below.


I had great fun layering images and punched out shapes.






Here is a quick video explaining my thought processes when I get a new stamp set.
