Happy Friday, everyone! I used the Clean & Simple card sketch (FTL150) from last Friday to make this card. They've come out with another one today, so I'll have to try that one soon. To see the sketch that I used, CLICK HERE.
I've been dying to use one of the sets that I earned free from my Sale-A-Bration sales & recruiting, and I finally got to. It's called Raining Flowers (p. 111). This 2-Step set has so many possibilities. As you can see, it's a good set for cards, but it's also perfect for scrapbooking. I can't wait to use on my next scrapbook layout! I just love being a demonstrator! It's so great to earn free stamps! If you've ever thought about becoming a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator, this is the time to do it. The $99 Starter Kit is still available, but only for two more days! To find out more, CLICK HERE. To learn more about the benefits of being a demonstrator and/or sign-up and be a part of my Stampin' Up! family, CLICK HERE. Please CONTACT ME if you have any questions.
I also used one of the new Designer Series Paper packs, Berry Blossoms DSP (p. 185). I'm in love with this color combo! It's probably because my 3 favorite new In Colors are in it...Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, & Wisteria Wonder. I think all 3 colors look great with Early Espresso, too. The Early Espresso (brown) strip below the flowers was made with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (p. 210). The greeting is from the hostess set in the Summer Mini, Swirls & Curls Verses (p. 4).
The close-up on the right shows what I added to the flower centers a little better. I used rhinestones from the Basic Rhinestones Jewels pack (p. 198) on the 2 larger flowers, and I used one of the brads from the new 2011-2013 In Color Designer Printed Brads (p. 199) for the Early Espresso flower center. The purple flower was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206).
