Ever get emotional about a stamp set?  The moment I saw the Calming Camellia Stamp set as a Free Host gift in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, I knew I needed to add it to my permanent stamp collection.   No doubt, if you're like me, you have your current stamp sets that rotate through your craft room as long as they remain in the catalogs.  But then you have your shelves of wonderful stamp sets to which you've formed a special bond.  These long-time stamp sets help you create beautiful cards every single time you put ink to paper.  Calming Camellia will be one of those sets.  This is one of those sets that I know I'll use long after Sale-A-Bration 2022 has ended.  Today, I'm using it primarily with Fresh Freesia and Shaded Spruce.  I love the sentiments in this set.  I love the floral in this set. I love stamp sets that eliminate the guesswork in creating beautiful cards.  To finish today's cards, I added a piece of the new White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon and a few Coastal Cabana Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack. Best of all, this stamp set is FREE with a $300 personal order or a party order totalling $300 (not including tax and shipping) during Sale-A-Bration.  This bonus Host set is in additional to the Free Sale-A-Bration product selections for every $50 or $100 you spend until 28 February 2022.

Handmade Floral greeting card using Stampin' Up! Calming Camellia

To create this card, I began with a basecard of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of Fresh Freesia, and then a layer of Basic White Cardstock.

I stamped the floral image in Fresh Freesia ink at the top and bottom of the image layer.  Then I stamped the foliage from this set in Shaded Spruce three times.  I found I needed to be careful of the stems from the flowers and the foliate and I matted areas where I didn't want stems to show.  Most of them are covered by the ribbon.

Then I added a piece of 3/4" White Frayed Ribbon across the area where the two floral images met.  I used the Layering Circles Dies to die cut a Basic White circle from my sentiment and a Fresh Freesia scalloped circle matte which I offset to one side of my sentiment.   The sentiment is stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink.  I tried stamping it in Shaded Spruce as well, and it was equally beautiful in either color.  In finished the card by adding three Coastal Cabana Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack.  To get the results you want when you stamp, adding the Calming  Camellia set to your collection is sound decision.
