Playing with New Toys

I love playing with new stuff - especially when they are free! One of the really cool things about being a Stampin'Up demonstrator is the opportunity to earn free stamps and other products. Last year I was lucky enough to get several of these sets, and last week I put a claim in for a set I have been eyeing off for quite some time. It's called Field Flowers and features in our 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. I've seen lots done with this one, and so I thought since I had a free set to choose that I would just choose something that I really loved, without thinking about how I might use it in my business. So thi is my first card that I've made with it, and like the ones you might have seen on page 69 of our current catalogue, I wanted to use it with the "First Edition" specialty paper. I used "Pool Party" and "Island Indigo" inks and cardstock from our new Incolor Range... and have teamed it with a piece of the new Sale-A-Bration designer series paper. I like it because it looks fresh and clean, and that tends to be what I prefer. Having said that it's a pretty simple card, and it only took a few minutes to put together.

And in typical style I already have a business use for it.. we are going to use it at our next Stamp Club get together. I have two clubs this coming week (one night and one day). If there is enough interest I am going to start another club over the next month or so... so if a stamp club is something that you have thought about, please contact me at For a basic idea of how it would work, please click HERE.

Here's a close up that shows off the Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the centre of the flowers:
