Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Bundled Up

Well, hasn't another month come around so quickly!

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, pull up a chair, make a cuppa and enjoy some beautiful creations from Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world.

We were asked to focus on a bundle of products.  Did you know that there are quite a few items in the Stampin' Up! catalogue that are designed to co-ordinate with each other.  This often helps with the creative process as I am not searching to find something to cut out an image or to find a matching tool.

Here is the Beauty of Friendship stamp set and Dies and I have 3 projects for you today.

As we said "goodbye" to a number of stamp sets that feature trees last month, I jumped at the chance to order this.  The stamps are really easy to match up... actually what I really mean is that you do NOT have to be precise to get a fabulous result.

Here I have used just the stamp set and 4 colours to create a soft effect.

I used Petal Pink, Pale Papaya, Gray Granite and Basic Gray and stamped onto Very Vanilla card, then mounted again onto a Very Vanilla card base.

This is the result of the additional use of one of the tree dies and a scalloped strip of Gray Granite, (I'm afraid I could not resist using the scallop edge die from Penned Flowers Dies).

And then here we have what happens when my mind turns to flowers!
I'm sorry I didn't get round to filming this.  

I cut out the "tree tops" from Pale Papaya card and cut a spiral into them and rolled them up to make the flowers.  Then cut various trees from Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Gray Granite card.  On the darker branches I swiped some Craft White Ink, and on the Gray Granite I brushed some Gray Granite Ink before gluing it all down.  Can you spot those adorable little birds nestled in there? They are also in the die set.  

The Artisty Blooms Self Adhesive sequins are so useful for adding a bit of sparkle and the clear dots from the Faceted Gems make great dew drops on the leaves.
