Free Saleabrations Stamp Set Hello 21

Hello stampers... this card was stamped by one of the concept artist at Stampin' Up!.  The Hello was embossed using our gold embossing powder. 


Embossing is like magic as you watch the embossing powder turn to a glossy embossed image.  The recipient is amazed you really hand stamped it!

Border Buddies Saturday - Building Botanical Blooms

Hello Stampers,

Border Buddies Saturday, Patsy here.  Today I want to bring your some more blooms from the Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.

Botanical Blooms Stamp Set and Botanical Builder Framelit Dies #stampinup 3

I love the greeting on this card and feel it is perfect to go with the Botanical Blooms stamp set, it is from the Flower Patch stamp set that is featured in the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Sometimes with all the excitement of Sale-a-brations and the New Occasions Catalog sets from the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog can be forgotten. 

Botanical Blooms Stamp Set and Botanical Builder Framelit Dies #stampinup

I love the fact that the patterned paper in today's card is part the Botanical Bundle which includes the Stamp Set, Botanical Builder Framelits and Botanical Garden Designer Series Paper.  And to make it even better you save 15% on all three products when you purchase the bundle.

After I cut out the leaves I stamped them with the coordinating stamp.    The two larger flowers are embellished with the White Perfect Accents and the four petal flower center is one of the It's My Party Enamel Dots

5 A Nice Cuppa  stamp set and Cups & Kettle Framelits 2016 Occasions Catalog #stampinup 10

So for your Mom's next big day or just because stamp her up a special card.  Nothing means more to a Mom than something hand made by their child no matter how old you get.

This year for Christmas I received an ornament our 37 year old son made.  It touched my heart strings as only a special gift from a child can do. 

Paul Waggoner Christmas Ornament 2015 -2

He melted crayons on the inside a clear class ornament.

He then used acrylic paint to add his finger prints and then dated and signed the ornament with a Gold Metallic Sharpie.  

A true treasure!
