Flower Garden Embossing Folder

Here's my first card from the new Summer Mini Catalog!  And of course I'd choose the brand new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called Flower Garden!  I love the deep, rich embossed image that Stampin' Up! embossing folders give.  My card begins with a Whisper White card stock base.  I used Poppy Parade card stock with Flower Garden, then added a border of Daffodil Delight card stock punched with the Eyelet Border Punch and a small 1/4" strip of Wild Wasabi card stock for a little pop.  The butterflies are stamped in Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight Classic Inks using the image from Flight of the Butterfly.  This is a great stamp set to pair with Flower Garden!  The sentiment comes from Curly Cute and is stamped in Early Espresso Classic ink on Whisper White card stock, then snipped into a banner with my Paper Snips and adhered with Dimensionals.

Item No. 117014 Curly Cute wood mount $19.95 OR
Item No. 120510 Curly Cute clear mount $14.95
Item No. 111564 Flight of the Butterfly $31.95

Guest Designer and Fun Layout

Remember this fun layout and workshop card I posted HERE?  One of my fabulous customers, Phyl Lyons of Seneca Falls, NY, attended the workshop and emailed me the following three cards she made using the same layout.  I thought you might like to see how you can take any card and duplicate the layout but use different stamps and colors.  The result is a completely different looking card!

The card above uses Plane & Simple, a great stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog perfect for Father's Day in June.  Item No. 121903 in wood mount $21.95; Item No. 121964 in clear mount $16.95.

I'm sure you'll recognize our "beloved" Bliss stamp set – the darling of the Sale-A-Bration promotion!  Unfortunately, Bliss is no longer available, but a good substitute would be Elements of Style Item No. 118611 wood mount $27.95 or Item No. 120045 clear mount $19.95 OR Notably Ornate Item No. 117098 wood mount $23.95 or Item No. 120561 clear mount $17.95

Here Phyl used Because I Care, the hottest Level 1 stamp set I've seen since becoming a demonstrator!  All my hostesses love this gorgeous set.  You can't purchase it but can earn it FREE by hosting or making a purchase of $150.  Item No. 118384 wood mount or Item No. 120118 clear mount.

Workshop cards – old and new!

Here are two workshop cards we did last week at Chrysue's workshop.  She had a couple of requests – one was to have me show her some ideas using Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, an oldie but goodie.  She also wondered how to create cards using the Two-Step Bird Punch.  And I know she loves Night of Navy.  So here's what I came up with for us to work on.

I love how simple but how effective this first card turned out.  I paired Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue, along with Inspired by Nature and Flight of the Butterfly stamp sets.  These two sets work so well together.  And of course the Butterfly Punch coordinates, too.

Item No. 111564 Flight of the Butterfly $31.95
Item No. 111656 Inspired by Nature $23.95
Item No. 119848 Butterfly Punch $16.95

And here's our second project:

We began with River Rock card stock, ran it through the Big Shot using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Framed Tulips.  Then we used a Stampin' Sponge to apply Always Artichoke Classic Ink to the raised portion of the card stock.  We created a pinwheel background using Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.  The bird was created with the Two-Step Bird Punch and Rose Red, and Always Artichoke card stocks and a snip of the designer paper to coordinate.  Each person could stamp a sentiment in the inside.

Item No.121809 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Framed Tulips $7.95
Item No.121782 Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper $9.95
Item No. 117191 Two-Step Bird Punch $16.95
