I realize these pictures are coming out rather dark...  It's hard to see the yummy color of this Razzleberry paper, or the sparkle of the rhinestones.  I will have to look for another photography spot...  Until then, I hope you enjoy what you can see of this card!

Flower Trio

Want to see the brand new catalog, get some fresh ideas, complete a free card and enter to win a free stamp set? You won't want to miss the New Catalog Kickoff on Friday, July 29th. We'll start at 7 -- mark your calendar, and stay tuned for more details!

This is a CASE of a card by Paula Stewart. I love that Stampin' Up! demonstrators are so willing to share their ideas with less creative people like me!! This card uses our new Triple Punch for the flowers -- love it! Add a punched border, embossed polka dots, and matching flower buttons ... this card is super easy and super cute!

Build a Blossom

I had so much fun playing with this card! I used the Blossom Petals Builder punch and the coordinating stamp set, Build a Blossom. The card is Early Espresso cardstock, with Rose Red and So Saffron stamped on Whisper White for the flower and Old Olive on Wild Wasabi for the leaves. There is an embossed piece of Early Espresso on the front, which was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (and my Big Shot, of course). Add a rhinestone and some Victoria Crochet Trim, and this will make the perfect card for a thank you, birthday, friend, thinking of you... whatever occasion you need!
