Get this stamp set FREE!

This is a gorgeous stamp set which will appeal to anyone who loved Heartfelt (hostess set) from the old catalogue but didn’t make a Level 3 workshop to earn it. This set, Botanical Blooms, is MUCH easier to earn... all you have to do is spend £45 during January or February.

There are seven stamps; three sets of two-step stamps plus a word stamp. There’s another flower and you can just see the leaf along the bottom of the card) and a sentiment: “to thine own self be kind”. Unless you fancy it in French or German!

As with most of Stampin’ Up!’s® two-step stamps, they are not made to fit perfectly, which really takes the pressure off when stamping and gives a lovely effect.

I love the look of this flower, stamped in colours from the Sweet Always Designer Series Paper collection. A strip of Sweet Always paper just sets it off. I wouldn’t have put these colours together myself but wanted to match the paper and now love the combination!

The tags are made with two tag punches – a boon if you don’t like fiddly cutting. I also used a tag punch to create the “photo corner” out of a scrap of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Punch your tag, then set to one side. Then insert the leftover piece back into the punch, to create a shape which looks like the section of a window frame. Remove and trim with scissors to create the photo corner.
