I am a very lucky woman to be married to the amazing husband/soul mate/best friend. We have 3 terrific kids and 4 precious grandchildren. I started stamping in 1996 and haven't purchased a card since. Although I am merely a hobbyist Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be happy to help anyone else enjoy this craft. Thanks for visiting!

This card is really pretty. I love the beautiful samples floating around using the Flower Patch stamp set and Flower Fair framelits!! Pretty colors! Even though this card has a lot of white space and is straight forward to make, it is a little bit time consuming. There's a lot of stamping. I do try to be efficient with the die cutting and send several framelits through the Big Shot at once.
Some people at my Card Buffet workshops tend to struggle getting good stamped images with the largest flower. I really don't. I recommend being careful and patient when inking, using a foam mat under your card stock when stamping, and watching through the block and stamp as you press it down to actually see the ink transfer to the card stock.
For the bling, I colored rhinestones with an orange Bic permanent marker.
One of the bummers about sharing cards is the photography. This card is so much prettier in real life. It is simple and clean but not plain. I love it! I also like having a few cards that don't need a sentiment.
I just loved this card when I first saw it and had been saving (hoarding) the flocked dsp from Mocha Morning. It doesn't show, but I used a stamp from Flowering Flourishes to decorate the inside and envelope.
Also Used: designer frames embossing folder and basic black 5/8" satin ribbon (bother retired)
When I first saw the 2013 - 2015 In Colors, I liked them just OK - didn't love them. Now I am going to miss them when they retire in a couple of weeks. Am I the only one that is often late to the party?
