Apothecary Art

The new Occasions Mini catalog that began last week has a gob of great ideas and new stamp sets and accessories. Here's another great card created by Debbie Henderson.... I just love learning from her!

Apothecary Art is a new stamp set that coordinates with the new Labels Collection Framelits....these two items are just awesome! She stamped the image on Very Vanilla Cardstock in Not Quite Navy Ink and used the framelits to cut out the shape.

The 3D flowers were created with the largest sized flower on the Boho Blossoms Punch. She cut 3 for each flower, poked a hole in the center with the Paper Piercer, scrunched up 2 flowers and inserted a Brad in the center. Fluff up each flower to your liking. Glue them in place using a Stampin' Dimensional.

For the ribbon make a triple bow and glue it in place with Sticky Strip over the stamped image. Glue the flowers and ribbon once this layer is glued on the card front.

The sentiment was stamped in Not Quite Navy Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched with the 1" Circle Punch. Use Not Quite Navy Cardstock as the 2nd layer punched with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder. Layer the sentiment with a Stampin' Dimensional and glue in place.

  • Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Baj Breeze

  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder, Label Collection Framelits, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Sticky Strip, Ticket Corner Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

I wondered why they named this stamp set "Apothecary Art" ... so when I Googled the definition of apothecary.. then it made sense... apothecary was a pharmacist or shopkeeper who stored things in little jars or containers/cabinets that often were labeled and nestled together to be put away or stored..... ... just like the stamp set of labels... they progress in size from large to small or small to large... .... pretty sweet! And I know you're gonna love them... cuz I do!
