I just love the versatility of this stamp set. It can be used with so many colors and exude so many moods. I'm sure I'll have several more samples from this set after the swapping 'frenzy' at Stampin' Up!'s annual Convention which is next week in Salt Lake City.
FABULOUS FLORETS: 123025-W and 123027-C. It's in both the Summer Mini (p. 22) and the brand new 2011-2011 Idea Book & Catalog (p. 107). The Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper (122342) coordinates wonderfully with this set as shown in the first card. The first card also shows off the oh-so-fun Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder (123106). I'm so glad we have some fun embossing powders in 'the product line-up' again. Check out the available colors!!!!! You can find them on page 201 of the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

The lower card shows the technique of 'stamping off' or 'second generation' stamping where you ink up the image and stamp it, and then stamp again and again without reinking, allowing for lighter and lighter tones of the same color ink. The flower in this card was stamped and cut out once with Concord Grape ink onto Perfect Plum cardstock and then reinked and stamped directly onto the Whisper White Top Note, highlighting the delicacy of the flower. Pretty cool.
If you don't have your very own copy of Stampin' Up!'s new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog, and you don't mind a phone call from me, just send me an email (left sidebar) with your phone number and address, and I'll send you one. Then I'll call you in about a week to see what is your favorite item and what you would like to order.
