Such a great combination

I'm sure that most of you who read this blog know what great products Stampin' Up! have. Fantastic colors to suit every ones tastes and products that co-ordinate and make crafting a joy and such fun. There is none of that last minute panic because things don't quite look right because colours don't quite match or you can't find a piece of patterned paper/button/ribbon to finish off your project.

Not only are there stamp sets with matching punches (sometimes bundled together with an extra discount) but stamp sets that co-ordinate with another to make an ever cuter/lovelier element. The Petite Petals stamp set (and punch) and the Flower Shop stamp set (and Pansy punch) are two such products.

For my February Stampers 6 thank you cards, I paired the Petite Petals with the Flower Shop stamp set and made these cards.

The Petite Petals are the smaller flowers in the centre and the Flower Shop are the larger flowers. Both stamp sets have six stamps so there are any number of differently combinations  that you can put together.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Petite Petals, Flower Shop and Express Yourself (greeting)
Ink : Crisp Canteloupe, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding
Card Stock : Coastal Cabana and Whisper White
Designer Series Paper : 2013-2015 Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories : Petite Petal Punch, Pansy Punch, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches, and Basic Rhinestones

Here's a project that I made for the Make It show using the same flowers together with the  Feel Good stamp set. As you can see, I also made some using Baked Brown Sugar ink combined with a Coastal Cabana centre.

I have one more day at Make It. It's been really fun these last two days and I'm sure that tomorrow will be too. I do have to admit though that I look forward to collapsing on the sofa tomorrow evening. If you are coming to the show tomorrow, don't forget to stop by and say hello.
