Hand-Penned Thanks

Welcome back, my friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and if you’re a mom, grandma, sister, aunt, mentor, cousin, I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day. We had a fun day with Mom and all the kids. It’s always great to be together.

My order from the new catalog came Thursday, and I had such fun designing samples with my new products. I’m not sure if this will be a class card, but I really like it.

Hand-Penned Petals, Comfort & Hope, Stampin' Up!I used the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle for this card. It includes the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set and the Penned Flowers Dies. Of course, you can purchase the stamps and dies separately, but if you bundle them, you save 10%.

I created the card base first. I used the Basic Borders Dies to die-cut the border from the front of a Misty Moonlight card base and a Pale Papaya Cardstock layer. I stamped the grid image from the Comfort & Hope Stamp Set in Pale Papaya Classic Ink on the Pale Papaya Cardstock layer. Then I layered the two pieces together.

I cut a 1″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the inside of the card so it shows behind the die-cut border.

The bouquet of flowers is stamped on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Hand-Penned Petals is a two-step stamp set, so instead of coloring the petals by hand, I used the second stamp to stamp them. I used Misty Moonlight (stamped off two times) and Pale Papaya ink for the petals. I used Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color the the leaves and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends for the center of the Pale Papaya flower.

After I die-cut the bouquet using the Penned Flowers Dies, I added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used the Old Olive Blends to color the White Baker’s Twine. then tied a double bow and added it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is also from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento. It really looks like it was hand written. This is one of my favorite bundles in the new catalog.

Don’t forget – now is the time to host a party, join my team, or both! If you become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in May, you can add an additional $30 in product to your starter kit, and it still only costs $99 plus tax. Host a minimum $250 party, and you can add $25 to your Stampin’ Rewards. And you can use your rewards toward your starter kit if you’d like. Either way, it means more Stampin’ Up! fun!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

    Buffy, this is just lovely. Obviously I’ve missed the boat by not getting the Basic Borders, as that really creates a beautiful background with that DSP!
