Tomorrow night is the first “organizational” meeting of my new Club Classes. I am super excited to see 22 ladies this year for my clubs! I have a few cards for them to create after we “talk shop” so I thought I’d show them to you over the next few blog posts.
This stamp set can be found in the Summer Mini. If you haven’t made your purchases from this catalog, you might want to hurry along. The items in this catalog are available ONLY until the end of August. There are a few items that Stampin’ Up! chose to make available in the new Idea Book & Catalog, but if you have any doubts, please ask. I would hate for you to miss out on one of your favorites!
To make this card, I combined some new colors with a wonderful neutral — Crumb Cake. (Previously knows as “Kraft” cardstock) Most of you know that I am big fan of PINK — any shade of PINK — and this is the newest shade of pink called Blushing Bride. I got the layout idea for this card from our Stampin’ Success magazine, but tweeked it a little and came up with this. I stamped the flower pot onto a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out. Using this “paper piecing” technique allowed me to line everything up a little easier and tie all the colors together, too.
I also enjoyed adding the new Rhinestone stickers to the center of the flower. I crumpled up the flower a little bit to give it a 3D look, and then added a little bling……who doesn’t love that? You get a full page of mulit-sized Rhinestones for only $4.95. I am quickly using them up (and the pearls, too) so I will be re-order these soon! At that price, I can afford to get more!
Have a great day……and please let me know if you have any questions. If you are interested in my Ceramic Tile Class, you are NOT too late to sign up. Please call me to reserve your spot and tell me how many tiles you plan on making.
