Posy Punch

Good Morning.
Didn't that nice weather suddenly change? i felt like a drowned rat this morning after i got in from the school run!

It's nice to be back in the dry and i have a card to share with you using the Hostess Only Posy Punch stamp set.
 'Hostess only' means that it is only available to you by  booking a workshop with a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
The new Hostess benefits are simply great. Now you get 'Hostess Pounds' to spend on anything in the catalogue or on a specially priced exclusive stamp sets like the one i am showing you today.

I do like this set. You get three large flower stamps, a small flower stamp and a 'hello' stamp.

This is such an easy card to make.
I used a 'Soft Suede' card and mounted an 'Early Expresso' layer and a 'Very Vanilla' layer of card on to it. The vanilla layer was embossed using the 'Perfect Polka Dots' embossing folder.

The flowers are stamped using Soft Suede and Crumb cake ink and strung up with Linen thread. The co-ordinating 'Fancy Flower' punch makes cutting out the flower shapes really easy!

The 'hello' is stamped using Soft Suede ink. The next layer is a 1 1/4" circle punched piece of Soft Suede card which i have stamped the same flower onto using Early Expresso ink. This makes it a little less plain. Finally i mounted it onto a piece of Crumb Cake card, die cut with label 3 of the 'Lots of Tags' set. This was embossed with the Square Lattice folder.

I have some more cards to show you over the next few days using the same set but in rather different colourways to introduce you to the fab five new 'In Colors'

Take care and keep walm
