Welcome stampin’ friends!
I am stoked about sharing my card with you today! WHY… you say?
Because it is one of my favorite new Hostess stamp sets …
This stamp set is a beautifully designed “sketch” style that just calls your name. Oh, and the greetings are so pretty! The card below is the “Make & Take” that I designed from my 2013 Spring Demonstrator Retreat! We used aqua painters to do the “Watercolor” technique on the flower.
The base is “Crumb Cake” cardstock. The pretty green “Pear Pizzazz” paper comes from the “Gingham Garden” Designer Series Paper pack. The “pop” of color is the NEW “Strawberry Slush” from the 2013-15 In-Colors.
I used the 2-1/2 inch circle punch (120906) on the flower and the “Window Frames Collection” Framelits (129021) for the mat. The pretty button came from the new “Very Vintage Designer Buttons” (129327).
OK… I can’t help it. I must share my swap card with you too! The Island Indigo color makes the card “pop” and was chosen to coordinate with the “Soho Subway” Designer Series Paper. And don’t you just love that little bird!?
Let me just say … “the picture in the catalog does not do this paper justice”. I simply fell in love with the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (130140), it’s great for scrapbooking… and any type of card!
And FYI … the “Sympathy” is included in the Simply Sketched stamp set. Just click on the “Shop Now” button to purchase any of the items you saw here today.
A little reminder that the “Simply Sketched” is an exclusive Hostess set, which you can get FREE when you host a stampin’ party, join one of my clubs, or place an order of $150 (order with a friend or two!)
Have an awesome week!
Hello Stampers and Scrappers ~
Just a quick post today to share a page that I did with my Stamp-n-Scrap club. We meet once a month and create one 12 x 12 page and a card! The focus is generally on techniques and / or layouts.
I have to give a nod out to “Mary Fish” who’s design I cased (right center) to create this page! Thank you Mary.
I love to create layouts that can be used over and over again… but with the addition of the photos (most important part) and some embellishments, they never look the same.
Punches are a great tool when embellishing your scrapbook page or a card. Then top it off with a pearl or rhinestone!
Hope you enjoyed today’s quick post. Let me know what you think.
