Stampin’ Up! Layered Labels

layered labels for you I love coordinating products and that’s exactly what you have with the Layered Labels Stamp Set and the Apothecary Accents Framelits!  The Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper was the inspiration for the color scheme.

layered labels for you detail Adding pearl accents, seam binding ribbon and punched images adhered with dimensionals creates lots of interest and texture.

The label framelits are super easy to use.  I just stamped my label, placed it on the cutting plate for the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, centered the framelit on the stamped image and ran it through the machine.  Then I ran the designer series paper through to create two more labels to layer on the card.

savannah's stamped card Introducing a new generation of stampers!  Here’s the card my 3 year old granddaughter sent to me a couple of weeks ago.  And I received the sweetest call yesterday from Savannah thanking me for the little stamped card I sent back to her.

you're neat stamped card She was so excited to get this card that I stamped about five years ago and that was still lying around in my stash.  Isn’t it great to be able to make hand made creations for the special people in your life?  Savannah is already learning that at just 3 years old!

Here’s a couple of new stamp sets I’m looking forward to receiving to use to make cards and projects for the grandkids.

Betsy’s Blossoms Lots of Love Card

Stampin’ Up! Betsy’s Blossoms in In Colors

betsy's blossoms midnight muse summer starfruit I really love this large blossom in the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set.  It’s such a spectacular image.  And in the rich color of the new In Color Midnight Muse, it’s a definite Wow!

betsy's blossoms midnight muse and summer starfish detail In addition to Midnight Muse,  I used In Colors Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit.  And with the new style firm foam stamp pads, it’s a breeze to stamp dramatic images.

To create the lovely bird, I stamped it twice and snipped out the bird with my paper snips, which was then adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I snipped out just the wing on the second bird I stamped and adhered that with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the wing of the first for added depth.
