I thought I would assemble my new stamp set and actually play with it!!! Imagine that??? LOL Did I assemble the whole set? That would be silly when I only wanted to play with two of the pieces!!! I will finish that up later!! Heard that one before! LOL

This card was easy and VERY fun to make. I used the Berry Bliss decorative paper, Chocolate Chip, and Ruby Red. On the Ruby Red piece I used the new "Lots of Dots" wheel. I just LOVE wheels. I went in all directions to get that effect in the background. I thought it added a nice touch. I stamped the flower image on watercolor paper and used markers. My original plan was to use the blender pen but with the softer colors I chose I ended up just coloring right from the marker. I used the scallop punch for the "Merci" and I added a button to give a little something to that upper corner. It was subtle enough to blend in without being the focal point. I sponged all the edges and then put the card together.

When I make card that have dark card stock for the main part of the card I will cut a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla for the inside to write on. And I have learned to write on them first and then tape them in. For me it's pretty much guaranteed that if I tape the inside piece on and write on it later I mess it up!!! I'm serious here. It's got to be psychological but I tell you, every time I write in a card I mess it up. So I leave them blank until I'm ready to use them.

This card was made entirely with Stampin' Up! products. Check here for more cards and projects using only Stampin' Up! products.

The card is divine. I, too, tend to mess up the prettiest of cards by schmutzing the handwritten note on the inside. Hilarious to hear you are in the same boat!

Oooooo.this is so pretty....I really like the button in the corner...everything looks so nicely balanced :)

I'm the same way about writing on the inside...if it's already taped down then I'm sure to mess it up!

Love this card, I am going to give it a try with a sara twist. I was so happy to see the SAB sets came pre cut, my hands hurt BAD after just cutting out two new sets. Do think SU will now switch over to all precut stamps?

Happy Stamp Day!

I love this! SO cute! I'm hosting a "ready for spring" card workshop this weekend, and this SAB set is at the top of my list to earn. Wish me luck....
