Apothecary Art & Loving Thoughts II

The new Framelits Die sets from Stampin' Up!'s new Occasions Mini Catalog are a huge hit!! They are fun and easy to use, and the results are fabulous! One of the great things about the Framelits is that you can see your exactly where and what you are cutting out, as you cut with the image face up and the die blade down around it!
 A Blushing Bride card is the base here; this is overlaid with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and a strip of 1 1/4" wide Cherry Cobbler Striped Ribbon both of which have been trimmed to "fish tail" points.
Over the striped ribbon is the lovely floral label from the Apothecary Art stamp set which has been watercolored with inks, blender pens and markers in pinks and green then cut with the Label Framelit die.  The cut is perfect... and far far better than I could do by hand (and much faster, too!!).  Over the center is a banner of Blushing Bride cardstock stamped with the "Wonderful You" sentiment from the Loving Thoughts set... what a wonderful set of eleven expressions in this same beautiful style (all the sayings work perfectly with the Labels Framelits!).  The banner is anchored on the left with one of our new large self-adhesive Pearls then the right end is also "fish-tailed".
I don't think you can tell from the picture, but the new Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details has been applied to the center of each flower on the label, giving it a lovely sparkle!  (A girl's gotta' have some bling, right?!)

The card is clean, simple, striking and yet easy to make!  Just change the sentiment for the occasion you need!  The ladies at my workshop really liked it and that is the best gauge for me!  : ) 

All these products can be purchased online through my official Stampin' Up! website store HERE.  Remember that every purchase of $50 or more qualifies you for a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog seen HERE!!
