Hostess Sets

I was cleaning up a shelf of stamp sets that my cat helped me clear off by trying to sit on the shelf and the Hostess Level One set Punch Potpourri came out on top. I saw a card made with this set and thought I should give it a go. First off let me say I looked and looked for the blog that inspired this card but could not find it again. If this is a CASE of your card or you know who made a card like this please let me know and I will give credit where credit is due
On to the card. I stamp the triple flower image twice each in Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. These images fit perfectly in the Boho Blossoms Punch and after a couple of punches all of my flowers were cut out. I adhered them onto the Crumb Cake layer and then ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. This layer is wrapped in Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon which is the most beautiful ribbon out there. Put the layer on the Cherry Cobbler base added the sentiment.

I then added a white layer on the inside. I think adding a layer to the inside of a dark cardstock base really adds something special to a one of a kind card.

  7. Hey Barbara, it's Jan aka inkerzaway from SCS demo forums, couldn't resist peeking at your blog and love this card. Actually, I think the INSIDE of the card is pretty enough to stand alone as a "clean and simple" card! Hope you don't mind if I case the inside for my upcoming Simply Stampin' library card class this month! And as for the front portion with the punches embossed? There is no way I would have figured out you punched them all out for the card....thought you had hand cut them for sure! Jan Hoyt
    p.s. you have quite a few folks following you from SC, what did you do?
