Presto Patterns and some New Colors!

Ruth Petrovich joined my team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators in February and has already earned the Supervisor title!  She's a wonderful, caring woman and I truly believe that her success comes from her love of Stampin' Up! products as well as her love for her customers.  I made this card especially for her. 

I'm afraid I'm going to have to eat my words!  When I was first introduced to the brand new In Colors for 2010-12, I took one look at Concord Grape and said, "Well, I'll NEVER use that color!"  Here I am – designing one of my first cards with the new colors and look what I chose!  It just works so well with all the other colors in the new palette!  The other colors are also brand new – Pear Pizzazz is another new In Color and Daffodil Delight, a new Core Color in the Bolds Collection.  So you may have caught that the In Colors are now going to be with us for two years instead of one!  Such a great change!  Let's take a look at how I made this card.  The card base measures 5-1/4"x5-1/4".  I used a piece of Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper and dyed it with a Daffodil Delight Classic Stamp Pad.  Next I inked up this pretty little flower stamp from Charming stamp set with my Stampin' Write Markers (there are markers in the new In Colors!) and stamped three times on Whisper White card stock cut to 1-1/4" squares quickly and efficiently with my 1-1/4" Square Punch then backed them with Pear Pizzazz card stock cut just a smidge bigger.  "From the Heart" is a stamp from Watercolor Trio and I'm especially fond of it because my team is called From the Heart Stampers!  It's so easy to punch out with the Designer Label Punch and slip it into a frame from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware using a Two-Way Glue Pen.  I added some Whisper White Organza Ribbon and a punched border using Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Border Scallop Trim Punch.  Don't forget to add a little envelope art! 

Add a white liner to the inside of dark card stock and while you're at it, decorate the inside just a bit, too.

Wow I love this card and may have to case it sometime (after I get some of the new supplies that is)  – hope you don't mind. 
This is my first visit to your blog and I will definitely be back.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful art.
