A Fun Tag Featuring the Botanical Builder Framelits

Yesterday, I shared a project I made with my Stamp Club this past weekend.  If you missed it, you can check it out here.  Today, I’m sharing the second project and some fun pictures from our morning of stamping.

It’s difficult for me to imagine that you’ve flipped through the pages of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Occasions Catalog without, at least for moment, stopping to ponder the Botanical Gardens Suite of products on pages 26 and 27.  You might have skipped over them initially (if you are like me) – if you did, then you’ll want to come back for another look.

I designed this tag sometime between 4:00 am and 5:30 am on Saturday – that’s the time I dedicated to designing projects for our monthly club.  There are so many things that excite me about this simple tag. I’m going to walk you through each of them:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • That Flower!  I wanted to show my club members this flower – so simple, yet so impactful.  At the time, I wasn’t 100% “sold” on this bundle, but I’ve completely sold now.  This flower popped out so easily and layers so wonderfully with so many shapes and images in this set.  What a great product!
  • There’s More.  This tag showcases more than just the flower.  Because I used so many items to make this simple tag, I thought it would be fun to label them all for you – makes it a lot easier to recreate, huh?Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, Honeycomb Happiness, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
  • Gorgeous Colors.  So the colors didn’t show up like I wanted them to, but you get the picture, right?  I think Watermelon Wonder throws off the mechanisms in my camera so that I can’t get a photo with accurate color.  Moving on…the color combination is delightful in real-life.  I wish I could just pass this tag along to everyone reading this so that all of you can see how wonderful they are.  If you like this combination of colors, feel free to save this:Stampin' Up!

Pictures from our Club Meeting.  Yesterday I promised I would share some great photos from my club meeting – I love our Saturday morning meet-ups.  We meet at Marti’s house – she’s central to all of us.

I tried to get a cool picture of Selina and her tea pouch project, but I failed.  I wanted to focus in on her project and let Selina appear fuzzy in the background.  Not exactly how it turned out, but Selina and her project are great.

  1. Great tag and pix! I do love the color combo. You can’t go wrong with Blackberry Bliss it’s so beautiful.

  3. YOU NAILED IT !! You get the prize today for “Cuteness Crafter”.
    Love your tag (it looks like hot pink and purple on my screen) I just got my Botanical dies and LOVE LOVE them !
    And then you had to go and put in pictures on top of all of this !
    WOW !

  4. Now we’re talking! Now I like this bundle. Brian, great use of colors!

  5. Love the tag. I especially love the blackberry bliss as the flower centre. It seems that a lot of projects ive seen use black, but the blackberry bliss is so much richer. I enjoyed the photos of your stamp club too, you can see that it’s an absolute blast.

  6. A sure way to judge how much fun your meeting are is to look at the table. The bigger the pile the more fun you’re having! Great tag!

  7. I LOVE the labels on all the elements of the tag in the pic! Fun and instructional, too.

  8. Bold and beautiful tag with such rich colors. Awesome product list with the photo! Love the club meeting pictures!

  9. Lovely little tag. Funny about the colors. I like it better in the class pictures!

  10. Ok so next time I come home for a visit, I’m gonna have to knock on your door!

  11. Your class looks like a real hoot Brian! I love when you share photos with us and I love seeing how much everyone enjoyed recreating your your creations. Just beautiful.

    That photo you have with the instructions and ID’s of all the projects must have taken hours to create. I wouldn’t have a clue as to how to do that but I do love it. Makes everything crystal clear. You have yourself a Wonderful Wednesday my friend. I think my catty order is supposed to come today – I can’t wait.
