Rubber Stamping Coordination Made EasyPosted by Christine Miller on May 15, 2013 in Cards | 0 comments
Are you new to stamping or Stampin' Up!? One of the reasons I love Stampin' Up!'s products is because they make creating projects so easy. For example the Quint-Essential Flower (Which is retiring at the end of the month), is designed to work with SU! punches so you don't have to cut out the layers.
You can see with this flower that I was able to punch out the largest layer with the 2 3/8" Scalloped circle, the next layer with the 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle, the pink layer with the 1" circle and the smallest circle fits perfectly with the 1/2" circle punch. I do not like hand cutting and you just cannot cut as well as a punch works so I love my punches.
And have you checked out Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper? I used the retiring Fan Fair paper (discounted right now) and because Stampin' Up! coordinates it colors so well I was able to pull the colors from the paper and use the coordinating ink. The patterned paper series uses Island Indigo, More Mustard, Pink Pirouette, and Riding Hood Red so those are the colors of ink I chose to stamp my flower. I did stamp this flower 4 times to make this layered flower.
If you are like me and time is precious, you will want to check out the coordinating products from Stampin' Up! to make your crafting time more productive!
