Reason to Smile

There is a fantastic promotion going on this month. This great 7 piece set is available for $5 with any $50 order. This offer is limited and will only be available through July 31st.

Here is the card I made using this set. I features the apothecary accents framelits die and new piercing template. I love the new piercing pack it comes with 3 stencils each one is 6" x 6" in size and they only run $7.95 (#126187) for the set. You can purchase the piercing tool separately ($3.95, 126189) if you need one, or use a push pin as I know many of my customers do. It adds such a fun touch to any project, we will be using these a lot in my upcoming classes. And maybe we will be seeing more of these in upcoming catalogs :).

Well I digress, here is my fun card. You can see the pierced details around the frame. To put this card together I stamped the solid sunflowers in daffodil onto white card stock, and the small solid flowers in baja breeze. Since the stamp set is two-step stamping I was able to add the outlines next, with soft suede on the sunflowers and midnight muse on the small flowers. To get the darker centers I used a sponge dauber and soft suede ink. I then took a piece of daffodil delight card stock and cut out the center using one of the apothecary accents framelits dies, it comes with 4 different die shapes, and then I pierced around it using the piercing template as a guide. I adhered the stamped piece of whisper white to the back of the daffodil and assembled the rest of my card.

stamp set: Reason to Smile and Pursuit of Happiness (greeting)
ink: daffodil delight, soft suede, baja breeze and midnight muse
paper: lucky limeade, daffodil delight, midnight muse and whisper white card stock; prints designer paper in midnight muse
accessories: apothecary accents framelit, midnight muse stitched satin ribbon, scallop edge punch, modern label punch, paper piercing pack and sponge daubers.

Happy Stampin'
