Each new catalog I like to post a list of my favorite things. I usually limit the list to 10 things so I've cheated just a little bit by using the bundles of my favorite stamp sets and counting the bundle as a favorite. There are so many wonderful new stamps and products so once again, I have purchased a wee bit more than I told myself I would get. It's easy to see that it's one of the reasons I am a Stampin' Up demonstrator. The discounts help with my wanting it all.
Here is a card from this weeks classes from the Botanical Gardens Suite. Botannical Blooms stamp set was the number 1 priority on my wish list. It's so tropical and so very different from any other leaf stamp sets I have. Some of the sheets of paper in the DSP package are designed to add some stamping accents. How cool is that! And don't you just love the leaf cutouts on the left edge of the card? Easy peasy with the matching framelit dies. The flower framelit does a double cut so that the petals on the inside of the flower stand out. My card had been in a cello envelope for class purposes and I forgot to pop them out for this photo but you can see where they are cut. There is even a framelit to make that amazing flower center.
