Hi friends! This will be a quick post tonight. Just wanted to share a birthday card I made for my friend and downline, Diane of Rubber 'n' Rafters. I think she has received it by now...hope your day was fabulous Diane!
As a fellow Stampin' Up demonstrator, I definitely wanted to use new products on Diane's card and boy did I ever! It all started with the designer paper Beyond the Garden and it's bright floral pattern. I love how it looks paired with...of all things...Pacific Point! I've never been a big fan of Pacific Point but I love it with this paper!
I liked it so much, that I embossed another strip of cardstock with the brand-new Flower Garden embossing folder and highlighted the gorgeous flowers by sponging on Pacific Point ink.
Onto a 3" circle of Whisper White I stamped the branch image from Fabulous Florets in Wild Wasabi and overstamped a favorite sentiment in Pacific Point. Aren't those pink flowers gorgeous?!
I used Versamark ink to stamp the flowers on Pretty in Pink cardstock and embossed the image with our new Melon Mambo embossing powder. I made three flowers in two sizes also from Fabulous Florets, cut them out, popped them up and gave them a rhinestone center.
Even the ribbon got a new product with our Whisper White baker's twine tied around the trimmed down Daffodil Delight striped grosgrain ribbon. I just snipped off the two edges of the ribbon and frayed the edges a bit to make it a more manageable size.And since I had a hard time putting down the new Flower Garden embossing folder, I also embossed the back of the envelope flap.
Ok, so maybe this wasn't a quick post--lots of pictures--but I am so excited to share all these goodies from the new Summer Mini Catalog with you. There's still time to leave a comment to win my blogoversary candy. Just leave a comment on my Candy Butterfly post or tonight's post and you will be entered to win! I'll pick a random winner and announce it on Saturday May 7th. Have a great Friday, friends!
