I was taken with the Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon when I first saw it
but was a bit puzzled how to make it come to life for me.
I was going to sponge some different colors on the leaves but then remembered a card
I did when I first started holding classes…
it was back in 2013 using the Thumping Technique.
So, I did the Thumping Technique using my Stampin’ Write Markers on the Golden Afternoon tree.
See the lovely subtle shades of green that make the tree come to life? I stamped the entire image in Pear Pizzazz ink and then thumped on Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, and Garden Green with my Stampin’ Write markers- NOT the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends.
After I thumped on the leaves, I colored directly on the trunk and branches with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.
I love the little tree image in the stamp set, too. I did put it in the inside bottom right but forgot to take a pic- and the card has been sent out to someone:)
The Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set is the first stamp set in the Occasions Catalog,
and I think it belongs at the top of the list.
Isn’t it pretty?
The big bloom is just gorgeous, and the pretty posies, the foliage, and the sentiment label are cut out with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.
Remember the Frosted Bouquet Framelits were bundled with the First Frost stamp set in the Holiday catalog so if you have that bundle, you can add the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set to your collection and have two stamp sets that work with the framelits!
I paired the Stampin’ Up Well Said Bundle with the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set on the outside and the inside.
Stampin’ Up’s Bloom by Bloom…BIG and BOLD says it all!
I wanted to show off the BOLD images along with the
BIG splash of colors in the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
so I made a Triple Panel Stand Up card.
Here is a video showing you how to make one:
I love the sentiment in the All Adorned Stamp Set available as a free gift with a Sale-a-bration purchase until March 31, 2019.
There are even three little punches called BITTY BLOOMS that come bundled with the Stampin’ Up Bloom by Bloom stamp set.
Three of them cut out images in the Designer Series Paper. See the second one from the right?
The oval makes little petals that go around the circle which becomes the middle of the flower so you can make your own little cardstock posies!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I have had the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings forever…
and just inked it up! Maybe I was waiting for the Stamparatus?
Let me tell you, it made stamping the topiaries in a straight line so easy with the Hinge Stamping Technique!
I just lined up the topiary on the horizontal and hinge stamped three of them and then flipped my card upright.
Actually, I could have done it vertically (as the stamp name says, lol) and just pulled the acrylic plate from the top, too!
I also had the sentiment lined up on another plate so it was straight when it stamped on the panel:)
You can choose from three different potted plants and 6 versatile sentiments in the set…so fun!
