Simply Lavender - Stampin' Up! Painted Lavender

   Last weekend I taught a private class for a customer and her group of crafty friends.  My customer had asked if they could make projects that used some new products from the (then) upcoming Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  As so many things from the Last Chance list had already sold out I was definitely into using some new products and pairing them up with some carry over items.  I combined the Painted Lavender set with the new Simply Said sentiment set.  If you are a new stamper and need a good all purpose set this one is great.  I love the 2 different fonts used and it covers all the big card sending events; birthday, thinking of you, hello, thank you and celebrate.  It's a great price point and perfect to use with our kits for more variety!

  This one starts with a Lost Lagoon card base and then a piece of Highland Heather cardstock is stamped in the same color ink with the leafy stamp from Painted Lavender.  It's adhered to the card front offset to the right.  Next is a band of Perennial Lavender DSP in Lost Lagoon across the center.

  The sentiment is stamped in Lost Lagoon on a Basic White Stylish Shape circle.  The lavender flowers are stamped on another larger circle in Gorgeous Grape and then without re-inking it's stamped again just slightly moved over to give the impression of a second layer of flowers in a lighter shade.  This is a great technique to make something look fuller while still keeping the same color palette.  Both circles are popped on dimensionals above the band.

  The flower stems are stamped in Lost Lagoon and then diecut and popped on dimensionals under the flowers.

  A few rhinestones add a bit of sparkle and a tiny knot of retired Iridescent trim is added to the stem with a glue dot.

  All of the current items used to make this card can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
