From time to time I hear crafters say we have too many florals in our collection. Is that even possible? There is an endless variety of flowers in our world, and they can be stamped/colored in a multitude of colors. For me, that says "versatile," and versatility is one of the things I look for when I buy a stamp set.
The Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home Bundle features the Blessings of Home cling stamp set, as well as the Flowers of Home dies. Together, these products are available at a 10% discount.
As someone who frequently has issues getting their images straight when stamping a card, I really appreciate the fact that the floral images can be stamped in almost any configuration, and I never have to worry whether they are "straight"! That alone is a big time-saver!
On top of that, these images can be stamped and left without additional coloring, or I can color them with Stampin' Blends, water painters, watercolor pencils, or whatever I choose. The end product is great regardless of the medium.
I recorded a YouTube video showcasing several cards made with this bundle. You can find it here on my YouTube channel. Please be sure to subscribe and click the notification bell after you watch if you want to be notified whenever I upload new content.
Here are some still shots of the cards I have completed with the Blessings of Home bundle, most of which are included in the YouTube video.
