I was so excited when Stampin’ Up! announced that customers could order a set from the new catalog in June and hostesses could earn it for free. If you read my blog, you know I was already stressing over not having any new stamps for such a long time (THREE more month until August. Can you say TORTURE?) Demonstrators are lucky enough to be able to preorder the set this month and mine arrived yesterday afternoon. Needless to say I had to try it out right away.

While I like how my card came out, I think it will look better as a 3″ x 3″. I will try that next. I think this card has Customer Thank you for next month written all over it. I used this weeks color challenge on SCS on the card.


I added most of the stamps that come in the set in this picture. Just in case someone hasn’t seen or heard about this special yet.

My card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Certainly Celery cardstock folded in half.

Next is a sponged and ticket corner punched 4″ Blue Bayou square.

On top of that sits first a 3 3/4″ Whisper White square that was stamped in Soft Sky with the background stamp from Fresh Cuts. The branch from the same set was stamped on the upper right hand side in second generation Blue Bayou.

On the bottom half of that layer I added a strip of Blue Bayou Prints Designer paper. The white cardstock edges were paper pierced and a white gel pen dotted border was added to the designer paper. 5/8″ wide Celery Grosgrain ribbon was tied around the layers.

I stamped the background stamp again on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, inked up first Thank, then You from one of the two sentiments that come with that set in Blue Bayou and stamped them over the background. I then punched the saying out with my 1 1/4″ circle punch and sponged the edges ever so slightly with Blue Bayou. This circle was layered first on a 1 3/8″ Certainly Celery circle, then on a sponged Blue Bayou scallop circle. From the rest of the stamped White scrap I punched out three 1/4″ circles, adhered them to the bottom right of the Designer paper and topped them off with Celery Brads.

Finally I stamped the small flower from Fresh Cuts in Blue Bayou, cut it out, adhered it with dimensionals to my sentiment circle and placed a medium clear rhinestone brad (Pretties Kit) in its center.
