Bouquet of Hope - Fun cardmaking Kit

I have had such great fun with this new Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! It's an all-inclusive kit which has just been released. The kit includes a stamp set, small ink pad, cards, envelopes, die cuts, vellum, gold foiling and twine. Small glue dots and dimensional foam pads are also included, but you can use your adhesive of choice. You will have some left over items, which you can then incorporate with your own projects.

The kits make 9 cards (with envelopes), with 3 different designs. The three suggested designs can be seen in my introductory how-to video below.

Of course, I had to try out some different card designs, so for 3 days this week, I created some alternatives. Some of them use extra die cuts and a few stamping techniques, but you can see how versatile that stamp set is. The kits costs just £20, and I would value the photopolymer stamp set at a minimum of £12. Here is the stamp set itself:
To give you an idea of size, the bouquet stamp measures 8cm high by 7cm wide. Of course, once you have made up the kit, you will have the stamp set and the Mossy Meadow ink pad still available to use on other projects. The bouquet stamp set is perfect for colouring in if you wish, but also works well as an outline stamp as you can see in the card below on the left:

I used Early Espresso ink on Mint Macaron card, with an Early Expresso layer behind. You can also see th details I have applied to the envelopes. Both of the card bases are from the kit.  You can view the kit online by clicking on any of the photographs on this blog page. I also used the bouquet stamp on the card on the right in the background Rococo Rose layer. 
Each week Monday-Friday, I run a live video on my Facebook Page, which is subsequently uploaded to my You Tube channel. As I was featuring the Paper Pumpkin kit this week, there are 4 videos in total you can view. Here are the other videos in the series.

I hope you enjoy the videos - you can of course subscribe to my You Tube channel and click the BELL symbol to be notified when I add any new tutorials. Our Stampin' Up! kits are a great way to get started, but also perfect for some take-away crafting! If you are managing a COVID friendly weekend away soon,why not add a kit to your suitcase. All you will need to take with you is an acrylic block (if stamping) and a pair of scissors for cutting any ribbon/twine.
Do check out our kit selection, which are available whilst stocks last. To make life easier for you. I have created a list of our current kits which you can check out online at any time. This link will let you add any of the kits to your basket, then you can review and amend accordingly. You can of course add any other items to your basket by browsing the website.
