Stationery Set Tutorial using Garden in Bloom by Stampin' Up, Pootler's Blog Hop, Garden in Bloom


Whether you're a regular reader of my blog or this is your first time, it is great to have you here today.
I hope you enjoy today's project, as always, there is a 'how to' video further down the post, I do hope you have a go at making your own version.
As regular readers will know, I love making sets of handmade cards and today I have gone a little further and created a gorgeous stationary set which I think would make a fabulous gift.



Today's set uses the ever versatile Garden in Bloom. This set was the first on my wish list when I saw the new catalogue and I have not been disappointed. It is fast becoming my go to floral stamp set. 
  
The lid is made from stamping onto a sheet of Whisper White Card Stock. I am a great fan of making my own mock DSP using stamps and inks and I was really pleased with how these ones came out.


Inside there is space for 4 large A6/A2 cards and their envelopes, 4 cute little 3inch by 3inch note cards with their envelopes and 4 gift tags - All hand stamped of course!


Colour Combinations are:
Soft Sky Base Box
Large Flower - Pink Pirouette with Real Red outline
Small Flower - So Saffron with Tangelo Twist outline
Leaves - Pear Pizzazz with Cucumber Crush outline
Butterflies - Soft Sky with Pacific Point outline

Pink Pirouette Box
Large Flower - Daffodil Delight with Delightful Dijon outline
Small Flower - Pool Party with Island Indigo outline
Leaves - Pear Pizzazz with Mossy Meadow outline
Butterflies - Pink Pirouette with Melon Mambo outline

Which colour combination do you prefer?

I hope you enjoy the video:

  8. Beautiful box, and an easy to follow video. Thank you for sharing.
    A suggestion for you, the name of your blog is a little difficult to pick up when you say it on the video, you might like to have a card on your table with your details on it so that everyone can find your blog.

  18. Hi Caroline, I came across your blog from Pootles.com (the blog hop). I just love this stationary set. I'm going to be making a few of these sets for my soon to be daughter-in-laws bridal shower. I'm so excited to have found something new and different besides a purse with cards or things of that nature. Loved watching your video!

    So sad as it is just gorgeous

  20. Hi CraftyCaroline!
    Lulus Crafty Stamping, from California here. I want to thank you for your adorable idea! Found it originally on Pinterest and I am making 6 sets in various color combinations for Mother's Day gifts. Your cards are simple enough that I can get them done quite quickly!
    I love having Stamping Sisters to communicate with overseas!
    Best regards
    Lois
