I was supposed to get this to you yesterday afternoon, but Ann kept me hoppin' – in my crate! Now don't think that's mean. I like my crate – especially when it comes with a toy that has a little peanut butter & parts of a yogurt cookie inside to keep me busy.
The only problem is that I can't reach the keyboard when no one's looking to make a post – or a video! (I'm getting in the mood for one of those. What would you like to see?
This is the card they made at the Sacramento Stamp Club. The Build A Blossom set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog is meant to be used as a Two-Step stamp set (Ann's overall fav type). But when you have ten stampers, two stamp sets & two punches to make 7 petals & 2 leaves a piece…. something's gotta give!
So for this card, I barked that she should stamp tone on tone. Rich Razzleberry ink onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock & the same with the Old Olive for the leaves. Goes great with the Antique Brads. The greeting is from that fantastic Stampin' Up! collection of greetings called Word Play (Wood #120308 – Clear #120651).
And don't be thinking we've got double of everything! We both have Big Shots (named after me), but that's pretty much it. Ann WON the Build a Blossom set & the matching Blossom Petals Punch when she went to Leadership. SCORE FOR EVERYONE because now we can save you time at classes & workshops!
Speaking of Big Shots – NOW is the time for you to get yours! Sale-A-Bration means that you'll get at LEAST 2 free stamp sets to go with it! Buy a couple dies (like the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder used here) & get ANOTHER free set AND Hostess Benefits (AKA Stampin' Rewards)! Talk to Ann & she'll help you plan your purchase so you get the most for your investment.
It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
