Printed Petals Birthday Card
This is my newest stamp set and I love it! And luckily ... this set is not retiring -- will be available in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue.
The stamp I used for this card can be punched out with the 1-3/4" scallop punch.
I can't help but continue to use old cardstock and colours. I guess it is partly the idea that I don't want to waste supplies. You know, it also gives a slightly different look to cards. Otherwise everyone's cards start looking the same. Well that's what I think anyway! The design stamp in the wasabi (green) at the top right is from the Priceless set which is retiring. :( It is still one of my favourite sets. If you have it you know what I mean.
I get a lot of my inspiration from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ You don't have to be a member to look at most of the wonderful projects people share. If you get a chance, do check it out.
Here is a link to Jill's card which inspired me: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1900387?&cat=500&ppuser=96089
Here is a picture of most of the supplies I used. Missing is the regal rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. I'm still out of vanilla and whisper white cardstock from SU so I've substituted c.s. by Reflections.
Other cardstock used: crushed curry (retired) and basic gray.
Phew! A very long post today. I hope you like my card. I'll have to show you some time how I made that bow. I've been shown before but somehow I keep forgetting. I think it is because it is SOOOOO easy! Anyway, bye for now.
