You Move Me Stampin Up! set Motion Cards

We recently made the card on the left at both my downline meeting and my Hostess/Club Appreciation Brunch.  When you slowly slide the card from the pocket/Mini Treat Bag, the wings of the hummingbird appear to flutter!  It is such a fun thing that I just had to share it.  I used the Tabs for Everything set and punch to make it really obvious that a person should slide the inner card upwards.

This is such a great Bundle (145322) with plenty of ways to use the trumpet vines, hummingbirds and butterflies, and I love the new Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon (144196) too.

The card on the right is almost a CASE of the catalog that I gave to my husband for our Anniversary. For this card, I just changed the butterfly to Pumpkin Pie and Peekaboo Peach and the sentiment to My Heart Flutters ("When You're Around." is on the inside.) I then used regular linen thread since it looks more masculine and natural to me.

Inky Friends' 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog Blog Hop

We're happy you've joined us for the 2017-2018 Inky Friends Annual Catalog Blog Hop!  I hope you find some great ideas as you hop through these fun stamp sets!

If you get lost or want to see the list of participants, go to the Inky Friends Blog to get directions.

If you are traveling in order, you've arrived from Twila's Stamp A Little Longer blog on which she displayed her wild and wonderful creations with the A Little Wild set.

The Beautiful Bouquet set is such a fun little set and seems so versatile to me. I made both a card and a bouquet in a little bottle.  My card is the expected design with "ribbon around the stems with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set at the bottom.  The bouquet in the bottle has simple floral stems cut down to size with various colors of the same tiny flowers for a kitschy look that will be sweet in my kitchen window.

I also made this simple 4-1/2 inch square card with just the stem stamp and wispy flowers in Pacific Point stamped 3 times without reinking.  The glitter dots add a nice sparkle in the corner of a very simple card.  I hope I've given you just enough inspiration with this set that you thought of cute things ~you'd~ like to make with it. It would be great in autumn colors as well.

Now, we'll continue to Yapha's Stamp and Scrap with Yapha blog to Wake Up with her adorable Coffee Cafe set creations.
