Flower Fest Make & Take

Here's a fun, easy card we made at a recent workshop with my friend Joanne.  It features Flower Fest stamp set and the pretty color combination of Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango.  I picked these colors from the gorgeous colors in our Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper.  This is another great way to get terrific color schemes for your own creations.  Just look at some of the beautiful designer papers on pages 184 through 186 in the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog and copy!  (The flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight but look a little green in the photo!)  A Rhinestone Jewel looks great in the center of the flower, and a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon adds an extra interesting element.

AND this is definitely the time to purchase some of those gorgeous Designer Series Papers!  During August, when you buy 3 packages, you get the 4th free!  Click HERE to read more about this fabulous sale!

Congratulations to my Team Members – May 2011

A sincere "From the Heart Stampers" congratulations goes out the top three sales people on my team for the month of May!  They are:

Pam Kane
Sheila Edwards

and
Debbie Sowards

You ladies rock!  And here's the special card I made them.  I couldn't make up my mind on which color I liked best, so I made both.

 

The first card uses Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive; the second is Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  Both colors work well with the rose image.  I began by using the Big Shot and Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I cut the Whisper White card stock oval with the Ovals Originals Die.  The floral stamp set is Flower Fest, a terrific new set from the Summer Mini Catalog.  Most of the stamps included in the set line have coordinating punches.  Because this stamp set stamps just the outline of the flower and leaf, and because Stampin' Up! Classic Ink is water-based, I was able to stamp in the colored stamp pad, then use my Aqua Painter to spread the ink and create a lighter tone of the same color.  The "congratulations" sentiment is a new Hostess Level 1 stamp set Swirls & Curls Verses.  It didn't photograph well, but a final touch is adding some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with the 2-Way Glue Pen to the center of the flowers.  Don't forget a little envelope art!

Flower Fest Congrats

I love this beautiful card I received from my upline Aly for top sales in April – especially because I always think I have to use green when creating a flower card.  Here, Aly used brown instead and it's such a nice change.  Flower Fest stamp set from the new Summer Mini Catalog is such a fun set.  Five of the eight images coordinate with Stampin' Up! punches, making it easier than ever to make a quick, beautiful card.  For this particular flower image, you'll need the 2-3/8" Scalop Circle Punch.  And there's lots to dress this sweet card up – flower buttons (from Brights Designer Buttons) with Basic Pearls that fit neatly in the center, smaller Basic Pearls for the center of the large stamped flower and a piece of beautiful Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon.
