Combine Stamps And Stampin' Up! Punches To Quickly Make Eye-catching Embellishments for Your Scrapbooks And Cards.
I love making embellishments for my cards and scrap pages, rather than purchasing commercially produced objects. I supposed it's because I like individual things and have always wanted to create my own version of what other people do or make.
Here are a few examples that I made the other night to have on my craft stall at the weekend. So much fun to make - so quick and easy using the Stampin" Up! punches, a couple of stamps, some dimensionals, buttons, string and my beloved white gel pen.
I'll show you the progression I took from very simple to a little more involved.
I made a number of different packages up - each time using different colour ranges. These are the pastel range and there were also Black & White, Black, Red and White, Bold Brights, Earth Elements and Neutrals.
You can see how easy it is to utilize Stampin' Up's colour families to help you make co-ordinated embellishment packs.
For Scrapbooking I thought some generic style packs without words might be useful to people, and this is what I came up with.
The Punches I've used to make these are all found on page 142 of
the Stampin' Up! 2008 - 2009 Idea Book And Catalogue
that you can browse on-line. You can also get a catalogue from me if you would rather have a hard copy.
In addition I've added some of the lovely co-ordinating buttons, brads and some white paper string (not SU).
Dimensionals are really good to help your creations look great, as layering literally adds extra dimension!
Oh, I must apologize for the cellophane covering making the images a little less clear, but I thought it would be good to show you how I've packaged and grouped the items.
If you would like further information on making these items yourself, purchasing the equipment and products or purchasing some of my embellishments, then please
