Fresh Cut


This stamp set will be in the new catalog in August, however it will be a June special, order the stamp set and get 15 laser cut note cards and envelopes for $5. I stamped the largest of the stamps in Mellow Moss ink and centered it on the card. The 5 Petal Punch fits perfectly behind the flower on the card front, this I did with Cameo Coral CS. I stamped the small flower from the set on Whisper White CS with Cameo Coral ink, I cut it out and added it to the flower center with a green Rhinestone Brad. With Dimentionals I added a piece of Ginger Blossom Designer Paper on the inside front of the card. I am really pleased with how this turned out.

Bloomin' Beautiful


After talking myself out of buying this set for the last couple of months I finally decided to buy it. I decided that before I signed up with Stampin' UP I bought sets because I really like them, for the last year I've bought them for demonstration purposes and how long I thought they might last before being retired, maybe it was time to rethink that and buy something just because I like it...
This card starts with a base of Apricot Appeal CS. I used Apricot Appeal DS paper from the Hostess Set layered on Basic Black CS, I stamped the definition in StazOn, on the DS paper. I stamped the poppy on Watercolor paper with StazOn and colored it with Pumpin Pie, Always Artichoke, and Basic Black Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aqua Painter. I mounted it on Basic Black CS and again on Pumpkin Pie CS. This was added on top of the DS paper. I stamped Bloom with StazOn on the bottom of the card.

Another Just B card... I combined three sets to make this baby card. The base is Bashful Blue CS. On the lower left corner of the card I stamped the Sent from above from Sweet Celebrations set with Brilliant Blue ink. I cut a slit around the edge of the circle. I stamped the phrase again on Whisper White CS in Bashful Blue ink and punched it out with the 1 ¼" circle punch. I stamped the safety pin from Short and Sweet with Brilliant Blue ink and mounted it on a Build a Brad then centered it on the Whisper White circle, and then mounted it on the phrase stamped on the card front. The B was stamped on Whisper White CS with Brilliant Blue ink; I mounted it on So Saffron CS.
