Yesterday’s Bike Ride card was a small centered focal point.  Today is basically the same, without a sentient, and very unintentional.  I have played with the Cake Soiree stamp set and from the large set I chose one little stamp.  I suppose I am in “small” mode this week!


Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Tranquil Texture, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745


I believe that the Designer Series Paper, Tranquil Texture, is more prominent than the stamped gift.  I really, really love this paper and combination of colors.  I stamped the package onto the DSP and then colored the flowers using the Stampin’ Blends.  (Which are back in supply!  WooHoo!!)  I used the colors from the DSP for my blending.

I wanted this to be just a cute card and decided not to add a sentiment.  To help enhance the center, I added the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon for some shine and bold color.  I also added the silver/white baker’s twine for the package bow.   I know the colors seem a tad dark, but the dark layers of the card are the returning favorite Blackberry Bliss.  The base of the card is one of the New colors, Balmy Blue.  It is a really nice and soft blue.

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
