Time Well Spent

Somewhere around Christmas, Stampin' Up! demos began receiving an unexpected gift from the company: a brand-new set of stamps out of the upcoming Spring/Summer Catalog! How exciting is that!! There's nothing like free stamps! This set is also a Level 3 Hostess set, has lots of stamps in it and is quite lovely! I have just now gotten to make a card with it, although I've seen a lot of great samples, and even received a number in a swap with an online group.

The background of the card is one of the designs from the new Bali Breeze Designer Paper, which is just gorgeous! I stamped the large flower from the set on Apricot Appeal cardstock, edged it with Pumpkin Pie ink using a Blender Pen and accented the dots with my Signo White Gel Pen. I stamped a second flower on a scrap, colored it, punched it out with the 3/4" punch, inserted a turquoise circle Rhinestone Brad and adhered it to the large flower with a Dimension for depth.

The card base is Soft Sky overlaid with a layer of Pumpkin Pie. The corners were punched with the Ticket Corner Punch. I used the stamp and punch from the Three For You Punch Box to make the two small flowers on the greeting layer, and again colored the edge with Pumpkin Pie ink. Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon is the finishing touch.

This is an adorable and whimsical set with lots of images that are very versatile. It can be earned by hostessing a party of $500. in sales. Call or email me to book a party today! Sale-A-Bration starts Friday, Feb. 1 and goes to March 17!

Happy Thursday! Hope you can stay in and stay warm today!

Your card is gorgeous! What colour of CS did you use to stamp the flower onto?

Thanks, Erin! I stamped onto Apricot Appeal with Artichoke ink and was careful not to smear it when I colored the edges. It turned out not to be a problem at all. Margaret
