Last Saturday was my second “make and take” class as an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! We had a lot of fun making three different cards one of which was the new Floral Phrases stamp set and coordinating thinlet die. Another one was made using the Wondrous Wreaths stamp set and it’s coordinating thinlet die.
On the left, we started by using Old Olive ink to stamp the Wondrous Wreath on Whisper white cardstock, which is a two-step stamp. We inked up the 1st stamp and stamped off (stamped once on a scrap piece) and then stamped on the Whisper White. We then took the 2nd stamp and stamped it full strength. Then we used the Bigshot machine to cut it out with the coordinating thinlet die. I brought out a couple of old punches to punch out the flowers and used Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. We then tied twine into a bow and glue dotted it at the base of the wreath. We stamped the happy birthday sentiment under the wreath from the Circle of Spring stamp set. Crushed Curry cardstock served as the base for the card. We placed whisper white cardstock inside the card and left it blank for a personal note.
On the right, we started by using the new Floral Phrases stamp set and coordinating thinlet die from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog. This is such a beautiful set! Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock was used and the sentiment is from this stamp set as well. Whisper White went on the inside after we stamped it with the border stamp from this set. You can’t really see from the picture but we put small pearl on the tip of the roses to finish it off.
There is nothing like sitting with friends and creating something pretty! I’ll be posting more cards later in the week so stay tuned!
ps-I had a third card, but I have to do some “fixin” to it because my finger put an ink smudge on it. Now who hasn’t had that happen to them? Let me fix it up and then I’ll post it. Until then, happy stampin’!
