February was my 15th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I didn’t even realize it until yesterday when I got an email from Stampin’ Up! congratulating me. I knew my anniversary was in February but I didn’t realize it was a big one. Stampin’ Up! was very kind and even gave me a credit towards future purchases. They are such a great company.
I made this card using a few different products. The flowers and leaves are from the Art Gallery stamp set and the Floral Gallery Dies. This stamp set is a two-step stamp set which means two or more stamps create one image. I stamped the large flower background in Blushing Bride ink and the second stamp using Flirty Flamingo. I stamped the smaller flowers in Flirty Flamingo and the leaves in Granny Apple Green. Then I cut those images using the coordinating dies.
Next, I stamped the cup from the Cup Of Tea bundle in Smoky Slate ink and cut it out using the Tea Cup dies (you can save 10% by purchasing them using the bundle item number). I cut a 3.5″ x 4.25″ piece of Basic White card stock and embossed it using the Gingham embossing folder. I layered that on a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock that I cut out using the Deckled Rectangle dies and layered that on a Basic White card base.
The sentiment is from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set. Lastly, I colored a piece of white Baker’s Twine using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends and tied it around the handle.
Here’s to another 15 years!
