I'm starting something new with my Stampin' Up! business.  Have you wanted to attend my stamp classes, but can't either because 1) time (we all know there just ain't enough hours in the day) or 2) location...(state, city, or just plain distance issues).  Well, I'm now offering Stamp Class by Mail (SCBM).  Each month will feature a different project the features a specific stamp set.  For the class fee, you'll get the stamp set, plus embellishments and supplies to make the projects.  Other items (such as ink pads, markers etc) can be provided as add-ons.

Floral Phrases

Play dates

After a long (and I mean long) work week, I really needed to relax and de-stress.  Thanks to my friends +Gail Tassey  and Elaine for wanting to have a play date too and sharing their day with me getting crafty.  

Floral Phrases Item#: 142355
Today's featured Stamp set is Stampin' Up's Floral Phrases.  Since the catalog release I'd been eyeing this set...a little intimidated by it actually, but loving it just the same...but just didn't get it (to be honest, with the release of the annual catalog and the holiday catalog, there're sooooo many that are in my HAVE TO HAVE column that I just have to pace myself)!  Anyway, I digress a bit...squirrel...LOL  Finally added it to my cart and with that and Pinterest...decided to play with this set today...and boy was I excited to play with it.  

So after meeting up with my friends for a crafty play date, I made two cards (started a third) using this set.

First, CASEd from Patty Bennett on Pinterest, using the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape, I made this awesome A2 sized Z-fold card.  I made a couple of minor adjustments...really to make the card my own as it needed no added anything...

The second card I made using this set, I CASEd from Splitcoaststampers (via Pinterest).  I used a monochromatic palette with Pool Party.  I also used that other tool that I just can't live without...yes, you guess it..the MISTI.  Thanks to the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented, we were able to "breeze" though setting up this card design.

I started a third using Stampin' Up!'s Real Red (the holidays are coming you know) but didn't quite finish.  Drop by again to see the red (Christmas) version.  This stamp is versatile and you can use it for any occasion:  Thank Yous, birthdays, Thinking of You, Get name it.
