GIFTED |Card making with Stampin’ Up!

I came across a tweet requesting bloggers to work with Stampin’ Up! As you know I love anything and everything to do with stationery, so this was the perfect collaboration for me. Stampin’ Up! is an international crafting company who specialise in stamps and paper crafts. They have so many lovely products. I was sent the You’re Inspiring” stamp set which has all the tools I needed to make Easter and Spring related greeting cards.

My set came with an acrylic block, blank cards with envelopes, pastel coloured dual markers, a label sheet and the stamps as well as instructions. The instructions take you through each step. You can also use the Stampin’ Up! youtube channel and follow the links to a step by step youtube video which makes it really easy to follow.

You take the stamp out of the rubber sheet, remove the backing from the foam, you then remove the backing from the label sheet and line the stamp up with the label (with the foam facing down). You then press the stamp foam side down onto the acrylic block, it sticks well and does not move when you are stamping. Then use the markers and colour in the stamp, then press the stamp onto the card.

The flowers came out so well and are perfect for Easter and Spring. Flowers are such a pretty design for greeting cards. The flower stamp has such beautiful detail.

To add more colour and compliment the design from the stamps, I used washi tape, some calligraphy and doodles. With some designs I used pencils to colour in the flowers. I used the “Happy Easter” stamp to title the cards, the lettering is so elegant.

As well as Easter themed cards, with the other stamps I was able to create some Birthday, Mother’s Day and kind thoughts for you cards.

I was so impressed with how well the stamps came out and how easy they were to use. If you are looking for a way to give personalised hand crafted cards Stampin’ Up! sets are the perfect way to do so. They have lots of beautiful stamps and different sets to choose from. You can also find Stampin’ Up! on Twitter and Instagram.

Have you ever used stamp sets to design greeting cards? Do you like receiving handmade cards? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  2. These are beautiful! I love universal stamps, they are great. That way doesn’t limit you to only one occasion! I love making cards as it’s soo relaxing and the creative side comes out in you. There’s something about gifting and receiving a handmade card. The people you’ll give these to will love them! Thank-you for sharing!

  3. I have never worked much with stamps but this looks like a really fun activity that I definitely need to try! It feels like making cards this way would make them so much more personal than just buying some, also I think my kids would love trying it too! Will definitely have to look into this!
