Festive Flower Swaps & Inspiration

I’m sitting in the Charlotte NC airport heading to Tampa for the weekend! Stampin’ Up is having our first On Stage event in 12 locations across the globe. Brussels, 2 in Australia, New Zealand, 2 in Canada and 6 in the US.   It’s a new way they are having mini conventions for demonstrators so I’m excited to see how it goes.  We will get to see the next Seasonal catalog coming out in January AND the Sale-a-Bration freebies!

Since the Festive Flower punch is on sale this week, I thought I’d share some pretty swaps I received using those.

The stamp set that coordinates with the punch is called Reason For the Season. It’s a photopolymer set so you can line up easily.

I like how Lisa stamped just 1/2 the flower in 3 places and it is well balanced.  Sometimes just a little showing is just right.

   The left card by Shelly Godby has a strip of black diaganol print that grounds the flower and banner. The right shows the flower stamped and punched – love this card using the Home for Christmas musical sheet paper!

   Deb is a talented stamper on my team and made this pretty card. She hand cut the flowers and embossed the greeting in gold.

 

Isn’t this the cutest little wreath?  Nikki shared this with our team back in September.  I had asked her to come up with some home decor items using the Festive Flower punch and stamps. this was one of her projects using a $1 grapevine wreath from the craft store.

She stamped in red on white card stock and punched it out.


She used floral wire to wrap  around the wreath. Love it and a great gift for someone!

That’s all for me today.  Go stamp something….
