Take Care

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!!

I just love this new Hostess Set from the Stampin' Up Summer Mini Catalog. It is a Level 2 set called "Love & Care". I had to use it right away as I have been lusting after it every since the Summer Mini was unveiled!

I started off by inking it up with a couple of markers, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. I stamped onto some very vanilla card stock scrap piece of paper I had laying in my scrap pile.  I stamped the flower twice and then added the leaf, it is a separate stamp, gotta love that it makes it easier to add the leaves where ever you want them. I trimmed the scrap down to a 2-3/4 inch square and then matted it with another piece of very vanilla and then a piece of crumb cake.

Then I decided to look for some DS paper to go with my flowers. I can across the retired Christmas pack called Jolly Holiday and it had the colors I needed and I could use the dotted pieces from that pack and it wouldn't look Christmas-e! I matted the DS paper with some very vanilla and the base of the card is crumb cake.

I stamped one of the sentiments in the set with black stazon onto the old olive DSP. I added some very vanilla satin ribbon and tied a bow. I then used some black sticky pearls at the top corners. I added the main image panel to the card with some dimensionals at a slight angle.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Beautiful card! I'm usually a very linear girl but I like how the center is tilted a bit.
