Stamping 411 – For All You Do

Boy…did I catch flack today from some of my friends and favorite stampers!  They noticed that I haven't been blogging frequently this past week!  Sorry about that…as I said, the past couple weeks have just really been busy for me with things outside of stamping! 


Today, Selene has another Stamping 411 sketch!  Lots of fun and easy to do, so make sure you play along and link your card to Mr. Linky over on Stamping 411.  We look at all your submissions and then take a little vote!  Your card may end up on our Showcase!  How fun!


This card uses is one of my favorite sets, Stampin' Up!'s For All You Do, and again I'm using some of the Kaleidoscope Designer Paper!  What can I say…it just is one of my favorites for spring cards right now! 


I took my colors from the Designer paper and used Bermuda Bay to stamp the stem and added some So Saffron mini flowers along it.  I stamped the large flower in Pixie Pink and cut it out.  I added one of the jewels from the Round Ice Rhinestone brads…took it right out of the setting and used a Mini Glue Dot to place it.  Looks pretty cool!  I layered the Whisper White on Bermuda Bay cardstock and then Pixie Pink.  I wrapped some Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon around it and tied.  I placed that element over the Kaleidoscope Designer Paper and on the base card of So Saffron.  Finally, I added the Thank You from For All You Do in Bermuda Bay Classic Ink on Whisper White and punched it with the Modern Label punch. 


This card came together really quickly (good thing because it was 1:00 AM when I finished!)  I'm going to sleep WELL tonight, I can tell you.  I was on the road for 4 hours today to do a Punch Class.  I always have a great time, though, and love visiting with my gal pals!

Seriously, 1 am?! Girl, I would be asleep on my ink pad at that hour – not churning out a beauty like this one! Great job Connie!
