There is a lovely new stamp set in the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue on page 23 called Strength and Hope, Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from the purchase of this set (clear or wood mount) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide. If you would like to purchase the set, get ideas for using it or earn it for free at a workshop contact me now to book a date!
I used it to make up another tri-fold card after my previous one worked out so well, but this time I took the colour scheme from the Elegant Soiree DSP (I do that frequently when I am stuck for colour schemes - go and look at the colours used in the designer papers and use those!).
I stamped the word image in the set multiple times to cover the Very Vanilla circle that I had cut with the Circle Scissors Plus. All of the flowers and pieces were sponged around the edges and I added basic rhinestones to the centre of the flowers (they work out so cheap - $9.50 for 150 rhinestones!!). Here's another view of it, so you can see the centre panel is plain Very Vanilla and stamped each end with the scroll/flourish from the set. If you want to make this card - I have a template in PDF form for the Australian standard size measurements so if you want a copy email me.
