Inspired by Nature


I’ve been busy pulling things together of our Demo Roundup meeting today.  Several of us that went to Convention are hosting the meeting for our downline to show what we learned.  We will be doing several Make & Takes.  I was really happy with how mine turned out.  You’ll see it in a couple days…I want to keep it a surprise for the group!

Here is a card we did at my New Catalog Stamp Camp.  I think Inspired by Nature is one of the best sets in the new catalog!  I was happy we got it free in our Convention bag!  I also LOVE the colors in the Hawaii Papaya Designer Paper…especially this check pattern!

I used a variation of the Pencil over Ink technique from February 2005 Technique Junkies Newsletter to do the shading on the flowers…it makes such a BIG difference!  And note, the new Curly Label stamp set and punch!  I punched two holes towards the top of the label so I could tie the ribbon on top of it.  The new In Color Stripe ribbons are awesome, too…they have a great "hand" to them, easy to tie and love that wide size.

Hope you are having a great weekend.  I’m excited to see my demo friends today.  It is amazing the people that Stampin’ Up! has brought into my life and I’m blessed to know them!
