The Stampin’ Up Idea Book & Catalog

So many of my customers see the book as their catalog and it is.  You can see what’s available and make plans for your purchases.  However, I think it’s just as valid as an idea book.  I’m always on the lookout for fresh new ideas and I can always find something in the catalog.  Today’s card comes directly from page 83.  I made some modifications, but mostly it’s the same card.

I used the Summer Silhouettes and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets.  Rather than using a large piece of Natural Composition dsp, I made the card from Very Vanilla and just added a large mat of the embossed dsp.  I used a bunch of ink colors:  Summer Starfruit, Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry.  I also added some linen thread which wasn’t on the original card.  I think it’s bright and cheerful.  I made it for my friend, Diane, who likes colorful cards, so I think it will make her smile. 

Happy Stampin!
