April 4, 2013


I am doing something a little different this month for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenges. I will be using the same stamp set each week for a whole month so you can see how versatile just one stamp set is! Take at peek at this week's color challenge:

The stamp set I'll be using is one of the stamp sets from the 25th Anniversary celebration called "The Best of Flowers". The flower image you see below is one of four:

I stamped the flower 3 times using StazOn Jet Black Ink and cut them all out using the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to glue them all in place and adorned them all with Rhinestone Jewels. The cardstock colors I used are Real Red, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo.

The sentiment from the Word Play Stamp Set was inked using StazOn Jet Black Ink and cut out with the Decorative Label Punch. I again used Stampin' Dimensionals to glue it in place:

 Stampin' Up! Supplies List:
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo
  • DSP: First Edition, Brights Paper Stack
  • Inks: StazOn Jet Black
  • Stamp Sets: Word Play, Best of Flowers

    1. Thanks Deb. I just thought it would get me to at least use the stamp images once each. Do you know how many stamps I have uninked...I'm sure you understand!

  2. This is such a great card! I love how you used the greeting with Decorative label punch, perfect fit!
