Good Morning! One of the nice things about hosting a Stampin’ Up! workshop is that you can earn free exclusive products when your workshop orders total $150 or more (before shipping and taxes). These products can only be purchased with Host Dollars earned through a workshop. Also, if you have a long shopping list and you place an order of $150 or more, you will receive Host Dollars that you can use to purchase of these items! I chose two of the Host items for my card today – the Stampin’ Up! Garden Grandeur stamp set and the Design a Daydream designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I cut a panel of the Design A Daydream Host designer series paper with the largest Deckled rectangles die and adhered it to the front of a Fresh Freesia card base. I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and then cut it out with the third smallest Deckled Rectangles Die and I was pleased that embossing was still visible, just a bit subtler. I adhered the embossed die cut to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped two of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Grandeur Host stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on Fresh Freesia card stock and fussy cut them out. I stamped two sets of leaves in Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and fussy cut them out. I adhered the leaves to the card front with liquid glue and popped the flowers on with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Blackberry Bliss on Basic White. I wanted to frame the sentiment with the deckled rectangle but there wasn’t one that was the right size. I selected a die that approximated the length of label I wanted and placed it on the stamped sentiment to cut three sides. Then I moved it and cut the fourth side. I love the random edge of these dies, and it makes it easy to use a two-step die cutting technique to get a custom size for a sentiment label. I adhered the label over the flowers with glue dots and finished with a fresh Freesia bow and Fresh Freesia In Color Opal rounds for the flower centers.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Grandeur stamp set in Blackberry Bliss on the borders of a Basic White panel. I stamped some leaves in Old Olive and cut the panel with the largest Deckled Rectangles die. I adhered the die cut panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Garden Grandeur stamp set has pretty free flowing line art flowers and leaves with filler stamps to create pretty two-step stamping images and is only one of the items that can only be purchased with Host Dollars. To see all the Host items currently available, click HERE.
