Awash With Flowers VERY Versatile Card

I am SO loving this Stampin' Up! "Awash With Flowers" stamp set. It will be available in the new catalog as a level three Hostess Set. I pre-ordered mine a while back but hadn't had time to play with it. So this week I put it together and have been having a little fun with it. I ordered the clear mount set. It's cheaper and easier for me to store. I'm running out of room in my workroom for more stamps.

The background is Old Olive decorative paper. I LOVE it that Stampin' Up! had put these colors in a variety pack, a variety of designs in the one color that is. A multicolored pack would be fun too but there is always a color that is not so popular to me and gets ignored. This way I pick out the color I like and I know I will use it and hopefully use it up!!! I'm still working on the "use it up" part!! But honestly I am hoarding less and less all the time!

I stamped my image with Crushed Curry stamped off once and then the edging of the flower was stamped with Crushed Curry. The stem was stamped using Old Olive. I sponged the edges with Old Olive and layered everything. It is a very quick and simple card to make. Though I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig on the outline flower image. I wanted to get it as close to the inner design as I could without it being too far out of whack. I was happy the way it turned out.

I was thinking of putting some wording on it up near the flower head but I didn't want to take away from the image plus I liked the openness of that area. In not adding any wording I now made the card a very versatile one. It can be used for birthdays, get well, thinking of you, thank you and even a sympathy card. Just add your sentiments on the inside! It's a simple and sweet card to make!

Oops! I was mistaken and thank you all for refreshing my memory on this. The Awash With Flowers will be available for purchase in the new catalog!! Even better!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hi Wanda! Great that set! I just wanted to let you know that I believe this set will be for purchase in the new catalog...NOT a Level 3 Hostess Set. You might want to check that out and correct it if it needs to be corrected. Just thought you'd like to know. Great set....customers will be happy to know they can BUY it! :=)

Very pretty card, Wanda...and I love your color choices. Just wanted to be sure that you are aware the Awash with Flowers is available to order as a regular (or clear mount) set in the new catty but it's not a hostess set. Just fyi. Thanks for sharing the nice card! Jan

p.s. one of my friends qualified for the early edition of the new SU catty during a recruiting promotion and had an inpromptu gathering to share the book with some friends live and in person so that's where I got my info. Can't wait to get my OWN copy as well!
