Betsy's Blossoms Project # 1

Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set


The first project featured today uses a new stamp set called Betsy's Blossoms from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  As the base for the card, I started with Whisper White card stock then created a layer using a beautiful and delicious, new 2012-2014 In Color called Raspberry Ripple!  The top layer is Whisper White with a beautiful flower from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set stamped in Raspberry Ripple in the upper left quadrant of the card with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the flower and two leaves stamped using another new 2012-2014 In Color called Gumball Green.  In the bottom right corner I stamped the sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set using Summer Starfruit which is also a 2012-2014 In Color.  The final touch was to wrap Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card and tie a beautiful bow.


Now, about the challenge…  Did you see how this card meets the requirements of the challenge?  I used Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit along with the Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set!  Maybe you don't have any new product such as the new 2012-2014 In Colors and a new stamp set yet from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! catalog considering it was just released on June 1, 2012!  Don't worry…  WHEN you do buy the beautiful 2012-2014 In Colors and a newly release stamp set, just let me know on one of my blog posts so I can check out your creation!  I can't wait to see what you do…

 Petite Purse Project # 2

Petite Purse Bigz L for Big ShotProject # 2 features the Petite Purse Bigz L die for the Big Shot.  The base of the Petite Purse starts with Island Indigo card stock cut with the die to create the Petite Purse.  Before I assembled the purse, I stamped on the card stock using the leafy pattern from the Papaya Collage stamp set which is also new in the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  I then assembled the Petite Purse and embellished it using the Language of Friendship stamp set to stamp the bird image with the Island Indago Classic Ink on the First Edition Designer Series Paper which I then punched out using the Bird Builder Punch. 

The handle on the Petite Purse was created using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border.  I also created a small flower using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack centered on the flap of the purse with a Rhinestone Jewel placed in the center.  Finally, I tied a piece of the Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon.
