I'm so excited that we are close to Sale-a-Bration! Don't you just love the word FREE! It's one of those great 4 letter words! Today I want to show a stamp set called Happy Wishes.
This set is so nice. Stampin' Up! is offering several super nice items that are available with a $100 purchase. This is one of them. Look at all the nice sentiments! Here is the card I made.
I was one of the L2L members who worked on the Stamperatus so I was able to preorder it. You are going to love it! I used it to print the happy. Sometimes it's hard to get a good image with solid stamps. With the Stamperatus, you can press again with the stamp or even ink the stamp again and press. Your finished image is perfect!
Start with a card base of Elegant Eggplant cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored and folded at 4 1/4.
The Wisteria Wonder layer is 3 3/4 x 5. The Whisper White layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.
The happy and birthday are from the Happy Wishes stamp set and stamped in Elegant Eggplant. The specks are from the Waterfront stamp set (Occasions catalog) and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder.
The flowers are added from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. Cut out with the Wisteria and with Old Olive. I just felt like the flowers needed leaves in green. I snipped off the leaves and added green leaves. Yes, that was time consuming, but I felt that it was worth it! These dies coordinate with the Petal Palette Suite in the Occasions catalog.
I wanted you to see the inside of the card because I used the best from the Happy Wishes stamp set. This is one really pretty stamp set!
Now, back to the Stamperatus. Have you reserved yours yet? If you haven't, you have until December 30th. You will need to leave your credit card number, but you will not be charged until it is shipped. My guess is that you won't get it until some time in April. Just remember that if you don't reserve it now, you won't be able to get it until the new Annual catalog comes out in June. I would love for you to reserve it with me. Just go here, click on Shop Now, scroll down just a little and click under the picture of the Stamperatus where it says Reserve yours now!
Thanks for stopping by today.
