Fancy Friday Blog Hop | Pick a Bundle

Hello there papercraft and stamping friends! Welcome to this months Fancy Friday Blog Hop. This months challenge is to use one of the many fabulous bundles offered in the Annual Catalogue! Returned or new, with a punch or framelits, just as long as it's a co-ordinated bundle.

If you've not see us before, the Fancy Friday team are past and present Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Members. We still love creating and blogging and sharing what we love, so we have a blog hop once a month with everything fun and fancy.

The Botanical Bliss Bundle just screams gorgeous, pretty, fun and also versatile. All the things I love in a bundle. The Botanical Tags Thinlits Dies create great die-cut botanical tags in record time using the Big Shot. The medallion and flower dies also have Edgelits that can separate the die image to be used as a separate piece on a project. The Edgelits were designed to be longer than the tag piece to ensure the image is cut completely.

Instead of using the dies for tags I've used them to create elements for two cards and also incorporated some of the images from the stamp set. Check out the tag I made a while back, here using the Botanical Bliss Bundle.

For the first card I die cut a piece using the largest die from the Stitched Labels Thinlits Dies and Gray Granite Cardstock and used it as the main focal piece for the card. Under the die I stamped the branch image also in Gray Granite and stamped off the 'Friends' a few times to get the variation in colour. I've then layered some ribbon, trim, die cut pieces and stamped images on the card to pull together the look. Have you spotted the sneak peek products from the new 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue? Fabulous for every occasion not just the Christmas Season.

While the second card looks completely different to the first one, they were created in a similar way with both cards having that main focal point, layers of ribbon, trim, die cut pieces, stamped images from the stamp set and stamped off sentiments. How gorgeous is that Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon and the Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper! Just STUNNING!!!!

The Shimmery White background makes the perfect layer for all the different elements to shine. Really gives the cards the fresh, crisp feel.

Now on to Shannon Lane in Canada for her fun and Fancy Friday Bundle.
