Seed Packet Poppies

A friend of mine asked if I could make up something to send out seed packets to some of her friends and I remember seeing a pattern by Carla Brasher that I thought would work. My friend wanted some poppies for the front and I knew the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set (item #123027) would be great from the new Summer Mini Catalog. I used the floating re-inker technique that Gretchen Barron had shown on her web site....casing from two terrific Stampin' Up! Demonstrators now that's what I'm talking about LOL

Any way this uses the small open-end envelopes (item # 107286) and our Shimmery White Card stock (item # 101910). The floating re-inker technique works best with this paper. The image was stamped with black craft ink and heat embossed with black Embossing powder, I used drops of Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade ink to give the poppies their color. I sure hope she likes them....

New Summer Mini Catalog

Every time I go through one of the new mini catalogs, I have a hard time deciding what to get....New stamps? New accessories? New designer series papers...So many things and decisions on what to get first LOL This new catalog is no exception to my dilemma. There are more sets with a masculine feel including some great designer papers that would make some great father's day and birthday cards. You can begin ordering from this catalog on May 1st through August 31.

Don't forget you can order anytime on my web page HERE
