Label Me Pretty Bundle
I must admit, choosing just one bundle from the new catalogue was actually quite tricky, but something about the Label Me Pretty Bundle just kept drawing me back.
I think what attracted me to this bundle is that it features a punch, rather than dies, so it’s portable, quick and easy to use, and customers without a big shot can create cards with this bundle too.
Once I started using this bundle I just went a little beserk, as you can see below.
My favourite design came quite by accident when I was trying to make a wreath with this stamp (see photo on right) but it turned out to be a perfect frame for the thank you stamp in this set.
So instead I decided to make a set of 6 little gift cards that fit in the little wooden crate that I made with the new wood crate framelits and the Wood Textures DSP.
These cards feature the 5 new in colours and the co-ordinating 2017-2018 In Colour Bitty bows. I was so excited to discover these felt bows have their very own Stampin dimensional already attached to their back, making adhering them to cards super easy.
This Christmas card was one I made for an earlier blog this week, but because it uses this punch I decided to include it this blog as well to show just how versatile this punch is.
For this birthday card below I used my watercolour pencils to colour in the stamp, and I also used some of the ribbons, papers and embellishments from the new Annual Catalogue.
To make the blue background piece behind the pretty label punch I simply punched out 2 blue labels in Pacific point, cut each one into 4 and discarded the pieces I didn’t need. The photos below show you how to do this.
My ‘thank you for caring’ card uses the thank you stamp from this set, the new faceted gems and some new ribbon laid over a strip of gold foil paper. I punched out the label shape from the middle of the crumb cake card and then inserted a piece of whisper white cardstock into crumb cake card.
This photo shows how I quickly and easily made 3 very different looking cards from the one versatile bundle. I had so much fun with this bundle and I just love how this punch not only has a stamp set to match, but it also works with so many different sentiments from many other stamp sets, such as the sentiment I’ve used from Christmas Pines on my Christmas card.
Next up on our blog hop is the incredibly talented Andrea Roberts. I can’t wait to see what she’s created!
