But we’re getting to say hello to a lot of great new things from Stampin’ Up! Speaking of new things…
Stamp With Amy K New Catalog Share!!
I’m doing a share of all of the great new DSP, ribbon and embellishments in the upcoming catalog and I’ve got the details posted here on my New Catalog Shares tab. I’ll be placing my share order on May 31 and expediting the shipping so you should have your new goodies during the first week of June! The deadline to join my share is Friday, May 31 at 8:00 AM MST so head over to my share tab to check it out. Let me know if you have any questions.
I decided to do something a little flowery to share with you all on Mother’s Day. I created this card using two Stampin’ Up! stamp sets that will be retiring in a few weeks, Build a Blossom and Tiny Tags.
I started by stamping the En Francais background image twice in Pink Pirouette ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I adhered the panel to a panel of Pink Pirouette card stock, then to a Primrose Petals card base with SNAIL. Then I cut a Labels Collection Framelits die cut from Fan Fair DSP and from Very Vanilla card stock. I embossed the Very Vanilla panel with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.
I cut the Fan Fair DSP panel in half, then trimmed the pointed pieces with my Paper Snips and I adhered the two separate pieces to the back of the Very Vanilla die cut with SNAIL. Then I stamped the Build a Blossom petal images in Primrose Petals ink on Pink Pirouette card stock, (seven of the large petals, nine of the narrow petals and five of the small petals) and I punched them all out with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. I slid my Bone Folder over the back of ach petal to round it a bit, then I started assembling the flower using Sticky Strip and SNAIL to adhere the flower petals in the center.
I cut one of the flowers from the 5/8″ Flower Trim and I tapped it on my Pink Pirouette ink pad to add a bit of color. I adhered it to the center of the flower with a Glue Dot, then added a pearl. I finished the card front by stamping the sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement), punching it out with the Jewelry Tag Punch and adhering it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
To finish the inside of the card, I stamped the En Francais image in Pink Pirouette ink on a Very Vanilla panel and adhered it with SNAIL inside the card.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms and Moms-to-be!! Now I’m off to go run a Moms only 5K Race, a great way to start my day!
