Hello stampers!

It's time to play Try Stampin' On Tuesday using Week #10's sketch.  I only had a couple of hours today to play so don't be too harsh on me.  I knew what I wanted to do with this sketch as soon as I received it from CherylAnn, but then at the last minute today, I decided to change the flower I was going to use.  This will probably be the last time I use the Build a Blossom Stamp Set for a while as we only have a couple more weeks to order from the Occasions Mini.  So if you want this fabulous stamp set with the punch and Big Shot Die, let me know or order directly from my link on the left.  I'm so hoping it will be carried over to the new catalog in July, but you just never know. 

So this is what I came up with for your inspiration this week:

This is a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square card, using all Stampin' Up product: 
Build A Blossom, Bring On The Cake, En Français, and Sanded Stamp Sets; Level 1 Hostess In-Color Designer Series Paper Patterns Pack; Poppy Parade, Sahara Sand, Not Quite Navy, and So Saffron Classic Ink and Cardstock; White Craft Ink; White and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powders; Fun Flowers Bigz L Die; and 1" Circle Punch.

Here is CherylAnn's Try Stampin' On Tuesday Sketch #10
I have a busy weekend coming up celebrating and taking a few minutes to be sad.  Everybody will be over for Sunday dinner to celebrate two of my daughters' birthdays.  I will be taking a few minutes feeling sad (that's all I will allow myself), because my "baby" is turning 40 (actually yesterday was her birthday, but I am trying to add a couple of days to be in denial).  Very hard to believe because in my mind I remember every second of their births like it was yesterday.  Okay, that was one-minute out of my "few" so I am going to stop before I have to hunt up the Kleenix!  (If you ask me how old my first born is, I'm just going to say "I don't know" so don't bother!)

  1. Wow very pretty love it stamped on the not quite navy!

  2. I had to reread your items used. It so does not look like NQN and the Saffron. I like that you used white ink on colored CS.

  3. Beautiful job on this card, Sandi. I love the En Francais background stamp.
