#SimpleStamping Saturday – Botanical Prints Medley. I can hear a few people thinking I am mad to suggest that the Botanical Prints Product Medley is a good kit for new stampers. And I do understand what you are thinking. But hear me out. This kit is currently only £26.00 in my online store. That is less than half price.
Just look at what is included in the Kit for that AMAZING price:
Botanical Prints Cling Stamp Set—6 stamps;
48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper: 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
4 sheets of die-cut accents: 2 each of 2 designs
4 sheets 3-11/16″ x 5″ (9.4 x 12.7 cm) laser-cut overlays: 2 each of 2 designs
Old Olive 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Twill Ribbon, 10 yards (9.1 m)
12 copper-coloured metal bee embellishments, 1/2″ (1.3 cm) each
7-piece Botanical Prints Dies
The Designer Series Paper would normally cost £10.75, the ribbon (which is very similar to the new InColor Ribbons) would cost £5.50, so we are already at £16.25, which means that everything else is yours for just £9.25. Seriously, that wouldn’t even cover the cost of the stamp set!
As ever, my Quick and Simple cards use minimal Supplies and our Note Cards and Envelopes. I have simply stuck the paper onto the front of the card and then trimmed to size with Paper Snips. If you line your paper up with the fold line and the top of your Note Card, this is really simple to do. Then just add some ribbon and a die cut to finish the outside of the card. The inside just as a simple sentiment from the set. I used the leftover piece of paper to cover the outside of the Envelope flap.
To step my card up, I added some coloured Cardstock, in this case a pack of all the 2019-21 InColors, and some Whisper White card. the basic design is pretty similar, although I have stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with Stampin Blends. Because the images have shading on them already, I only used 2 single Blends, Light Cajun Craze and Light Old Olive. Single Blends will not be available in the new Catalogue, so if you need to replace any, or add a few more to your collection, get them NOW. In the new Catalogue they will only be available in a Combo. The image and image mat are made by extending some of our punches (see the video for more information on this). I added one of the Copper Bees with a Mini Glue Dot to finish the front. the inside has a repeat of the stamped image and a sentiment.
My final version uses one of the laser-cut overlays and a die cut image. I cut the laser-cut overlay to extend it over the whole of the card front. I added a piece of the paper to cover the gap and then ran a length of ribbon over that and round to the back of the mat. This time the Copper Bee is to one side of the stamped and coloured images. As in the Casual Card above, I added an image (coloured this time) and the sentiment on the inside of the card.
At the discounted price this really is a FANTASTIC product for a new stamper. Add an ink pad, a Clear Block and a pack of Note Cards & Envelopes and you are ready to go. As you get more confident you can add extra products and let the Botanical Print Medley grow with you!
