Climbing Orchid is a stamp set that creates beautiful flowers. Combined with the Orchid Builder Framelits it’s a real winner! This isn’t a new stamp set but it’s new to me and I love it!
The photopolymer stamp set and dies have two sets of orchids, one small and one large, several different sizes of leaves, branches, and great sentiments. These are always the type of sets I’m drawn to — pretty images and sentiments that are in good fonts. Very versatile. You can use the sentiments with any image and that’s what adds to their versatility!
The orchids really steal the show here. They were stamped on Powder Pink card stock using Berry Burst ink, and then run through the Big Shot with the Orchid Builder Framelits Dies.
Pretty Pointer: The trick to bringing the orchids to life is to use a bone folder to round the edges of each orchid blossom downward from the center. You pull very gently with the card stock in between the bone folder and your finger. Do this to all the blossoms. Then sponge the centers (very lightly) and the edges of each blossom (with more ink and a firmer pressure) with a Sponge Dauber and the Berry Burst ink. You will love the results!
I used lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals to vary the height of the orchid blossoms and the sentiments. This is one fabulous set, I’m SO glad I got it! You’ll be seeing more of it for sure!

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B”. Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is. Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!
You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My card today is a birthday card using several brand new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. It was so much fun to open these new goodies and play with them!
These beautiful roses and leaves are from the new Healing Hugs stamp set. Aren’t they gorgeous? They are a new type of stamp called “dist-INK-tive” stamps. They were made in a special way to look very real and lifelike! CLICKHERE to see a video all about the DistINKtive stamps 🙂
Underneath the roses is a piece of the new Tropical Escape 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which has been embossed with the very amazing Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Do you see the ruffles? I LOVE them!! The card uses our soft pink called Blushing Bride. Mostly monochromatic cards can draw your attention to the elements of the card instead of focusing on the color.
The sweet little sentiment tag was cut with the new Stitched Labels Framelits and stamped with a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I chose this sentiment because I like the different fonts and the size fits perfectly into the tag framelit!
Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see which “B” the rest of my Pals are using. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.
Mark your calendars for July 11, 2018, for our annual Pattern Party featuring projects using favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers and coordinating embellishments.. Don’t miss it!
Today I am sending out the first round of my New Catalog Ribbon Shares! I’ve packaged them in clear cellophane bags and, of course, they needed some pretty tags!
I just got the gorgeous new Petal Promenade Suite and had to use it on the tags!
Beautiful Promenade Photopolymer Bundle Item No. 148389 $45
CLICK PICTURE TO ORDER
The Suite has stamps, dies, and beautiful designer series paper, and I tried to use all of it!! 🙂
The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper forms the base of the 2″ tag. It’s backed with a piece of Whisper White card stock, and then punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then I started layering on pretty things!
The flower was stamped with Berry Burst ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and cut with one of the dies. Some of the leaves were stamped and die cut, and others were simply die cut. I added some pearls on the flower for bling!
Here is the finished product ~ 40 yards of ribbon for $35 plus $5 mailing. I still have a few spots left in my Second Ribbon Share. If you would like to participate, email me at [email protected] with the words “2018 RIBBON SHARE” in the subject line. For all the details, CLICK HERE.
