Stampin' Up! Punch Art- Flower Shop Stamp and Pansy Punch Review & Overview

Flowers are some of the most versatile crafting embellishments you can create. They can say happy birthday, I love you, Get well soon, congratulations, I'm so sorry and virtually any other emotion or sentiment that you can think of. Buying flower embellishment packs at Hobby Lobby or Micheal's for your cards or scrapbook pages gets expensive quickly, and they don't always match the colors or theme that you are trying to create. There is a fun and creative answer to this dilemma: the Flower Shop Stamp Set and Pansy Punch kit from Stampin' Up!

Even before I became a stampin up demo, I always loved their designs and products. The products are high quality and their designs range from whimsical and fun to serious and formal. The flower shop bundle can easily go either way. For a fun look, emboss the flowers and watercolor them with fun and bright colors. The colors in the 2013-2015 Color Kit work well for this- they include Baked Brown Sugar, Costal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, and Strawberry Slush. For a more formal look, you can use colors from the Regal collection. To add a touch of elegance, layer the flowers and push the petals up a little to create an effect of the flowers popping off the page.

The flower shop bundle includes the Pansy punch and the Flower Shop clear stamp collection for $28.75. The stamp set includes 6 different stamps that coordinate with the punch to create a variety of different flower textures.  

You can order the bundle directly from Stampin’ Up! by clicking HERE.

Here is a card I made with this stamp set and punch bundle:

The metal frame is the silver flourish designer frame, and they are currently on clearance for $2.39 for a package of 8 frames. This is a steal for such a classy embellishment! You can purchase the frames by clicking HERE!
