Stamp Review Crew: Flower Shop Edition

Welcome to the latest Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop!  This session we are reviewing the Flower Shop stamp set.  This one has been around a while (an oldie but goodie).  The Review Crew loves to dust off a set and come up with fresh new ideas!

When a new catalog comes out I always flip to the back and check out the Big Shot accessories.  Happy happy times when there are new Framelits especially for boxes and bags.  This time we have a super cute Popcorn Box Die.  I could not wait to make something with it.
I designed an easel card that folds flat for mailing.  (If you are putting it in a regular size envelope pay attention to the height of the flower arrangement.  Mine turned out to be just a tad too tall.  I will have to make a pretty matching envelope with the Punch Board!)
The vase and pull-out insert are made with the Popcorn Box Framelit.  
The many styles of flowers in the Flower Shop set give lots of options for different looks.  The first card is more realistic and second is more artsy.  I thought the pink smudgy abstract design of the Blooms and Bliss DSP looked like handblown glass and the textured flowers were a good contrast.

I did a video tutorial if anyone is interested in recreating this:

  10. I haven't watched the video yet. If I do I wont get anything else done! I don't even have these sets yet, but I'd do everything I could to order them and spend my waiting time watching your video. Not conductive to getting other things done. I'm waiting for an order today and other than the Jars of Love Bundle and some DSP, I don't remember what I order. Every shipment is like Christmas. Thank you for the video, I know I'm going to enjoy it ( when I get my supplies! Ha Ha
