A Mother's Flair

Today's stamp set is from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, and it is one of the most fun, sophisticated stamps from that catalog.  I love sending cards with a sophisticated flair.  This set includes several playful images while also creating a sophisticated flair.   This is one of the cards we're making in Card Class this Sunday.  Read more below. Time is running out.  If you love this set, be sure to pick it up before May 31. 

I used Basic Black as my Base Card.  Then I choose one of the new In Colors, Lovely Lipstick, as the focus color for this card.  Then a Layer of Whisper White, matted with Black for my image block.  There's a banner of black and white dots, one of the prints from the retiring Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper Pack, running behind the image block.  I love the month of May, not only is it Mother's Day -- for the entire month-- but it is also the month where I get to use not only current products from Stampin', Up!, But new products as well.  That means I have so much to choose from that I sometimes overwhelm myself and don't get anything done.  Not so with this card.  It came together so quickly!     



I used the water-color swish from the Work of Art stamp set to stamp behind the three high heeled imaged. It is stamped off once before applying to my image. I think it really sets off the simple images stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.   

The sentiment is also from the A Mother's Flair stamp set.  I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a circle die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits matted with a scalloped black die cut circle from the same Framelit set.  I stamped the sentiment again in Lovely Lipstick and fussy cut the word Beautiful out and popped it up on dimensionals.This has so many cute images, I think I'll keep this retiring set for personal use.

 Sunday, May 27, 2018, we're having a Card Class

Join us Sunday afternoon to make cards with several fun stamp sets and products from the Stampin' Up! catalogs.  Some will soon retire, and this is your last chance to use these sets.  Some are from the new catalog, giving you a sneak peek from the new catalog, which will go live on June 1.   We'll make these 6 cards using a variety of papers, die cuts, embossing folders, sponge daubers, Blends Markers, and embellishments.  Join Us!   You'll love creating these cards and then sharing your creativity with others when you need  to send a special "thank you", a friendly "hello", or remember a Birthday.  Pick from a variety of sentiments so each card fits your needs..
