Fifth Avenue Autumn

  Last week I was lucky enough to get invited to do a stamping workshop at the office of a few of my stamping ladies.  They show off their club projects at work and some of their co-workers expressed interest in learning to do some stamping.  We set it up so that I would come in at the end of their work day and do a few projects to introduce them to Stampin' Up!  It's so fun to see new stampers' eyes light up when they see how easy stamping can be and it doesn't matter if they aren't crafty (or they think they aren't crafty!).  Stampin' Up! does all the hard work with making great stamp sets and designing papers, ink and embellishments that all coordinate.

 The ladies at the workshop made this card and were able to choose a sentiment from the Petite Pairs set that worked for them. 

  They stamped the daisy from Fifth Avenue Floral in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Sponge daubers were used to add ink to just the centers of the flowers.  Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard work really well together for an autumn inspired color palette. 

  I had the ladies added a knot of Chocolate Chip satin ribbon at the top of the image panel.   The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched out and layered with another circle in Chocolate Chip.  The sentiment circle is popped up on a dimensional as the final detail.

  There are only 2 days left to get the Free Big Shot when you join Stampin' Up!  I'd love to have you join my team and enjoy all the perks that being a demo gets you.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.  Getting the Starter Kit is an awesome way to increase your stamping supplies just in time to get started on those Christmas cards!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
