Have you ever bought a stamp set that you thought you really wanted, and then, when it was in your hands, not known what to do with it?
That was what happened with the Flower Patch stamp set. I loved the cards I'd seen made with it, but found it difficult to reproduce them.
But I've come back to it, and now I love it as much as I thought I would.
A couple of tips for you. The larger stamps can be hard to get even ink coverage on. If you use the Stampin' Pierce Mat under your paper you'll get even pressure on your stamping, and also try to use ink pads that aren't too juicy - Stampin' Up ink pads can be very juicy to start with.
Anyway, this is the card I made for starters - I love the Happy Blooming Birthday sentiment!
I've used Rose Red card stock and Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss inks. And I added a couple of punched Itty butterflies to finish it off.
There are some framelits (Flower Fair framelits) that go with the stamp set that I haven't used yet, but when I do, you'll definitely be seeing the results.
Don't forget that if you're in the Central Brittany area and you'd like to have a party, and have a go at making cards yourself, you can contact me HERE. And if you think you'd like to have a go at being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator yourself, I'd love to have you on my team!
