Last month I was supposed to attend a Girl Scout awards night for leaders. I volunteered to bring along flowers for the awards recipients, complete with stamped tags celebrating everyone’s achievements. I made about 15 bouquets to hand out at the event.
I have to say that I’m completely addicted to the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits (see them online). In fact, here are more sample ideas on my blog, including a Video Tutorial. I was so happy when they all came out in the New Catalog on June 1st!
Each little bouquet of a rose, baby’s breath and some greenery was tied with a piece of coordinating ribbon (since Stampin’ Up! has great ribbon colors to match the Card Stocks and Inks — see online).
Here’s a shot of one of the bouquets (yes, sorry it’s laid out on my kitchen floor!):
So next time you have an event — think about how your stamping supplies can come in handy for making it special!
Yesterday I shared an Apothecary Art card that was pretty speedy — but today’s card is even quicker. It features the Note Card & Envelopes (see them online) and the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online).
The coloring is quick & easy, plus there is a fun trick to use a Square Punch to make the ends of your paper banner (the trick is on my latest Video Tutorial).
Looking for more quick card ideas? Here are a selection of cards on my blog featuring the Note Cards & Envelopes!
Did you catch my Video Tutorial on the Apothecary Art stamp set and the Labels Collection Framelits last week? (check it out now) Well here’s a Quick Card that still uses the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the Framelits (see them online), but on an even simpler card background.
Isn’t the background color pretty on this card? The color is Blushing Bride from the 2010-2012 In Color Collection. Keep in mind that these 5 colors will be GONE after May 31st when the current catalog retires. If you want to have them in your collection, be sure to get them now!

My new favorite stamp set? Hands down, it’s Apothecary Art (see it online) from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I can’t seem to put it down! Funny, especially because I didn’t even pre-order it on my first demonstrator pre-order… I reluctantly added it later. Just goes to show, sometimes it’s the play-time that makes a set our favorite!
Let’s see… favorite highlights of this card?
- It’s simple! The base of the card is one of the Note Card & Envelopes that come as a package (note cards & envelopes together – see them online). I use these all the time now! They’re quick to grab for a card idea I want to get down fast, and the envelope is already included. Check out some other samples from my blog.
- Pleated Satin Ribbon — could it be any more gorgeous? (see it online)
- Twitterpated Designer Series Paper — my current fav of all the Occasions Mini catalog papers (see it online)
- For something a little different, try using the Eyelet Border Punch (see it online) along the side of the card, and layer with a short strip of contrasting paper.
