Pretties For All You Do Club Card

Is it possible to have too many supplies?  Perhaps…. I have had my Stampin’ Up! Pretties for well over a year, it seems to get lost in my stampin’ room.  I cannot imagine how a pretty shiny metal container can get lost in my Stamp Room… but then again, you haven’t seen it have you?  (hee, hee… those who have will definitely understand!)

The First Wednesday Card Club of Jacksonville really enjoyed making this card during our club meeting this month.  The Pretties Blossom was dyed with a sponge dauber and Apricot Appeal Classic Ink, and really looked quite stunning against the Nuoveau Chic Designer Series Paper!  The paper was my cue for colors for the card (that and a Razzleberry Lemonade Convention swap I had received from Chiaki Haverstick :)

The Card Club members also got to make one of the little Treat Bags which I featured on my blog last week… everyone was very happily surprised.  Lunch was good, dessert was great… and we all had a fun time too!

A sponge dauber was used to add color to the edges of the DSP and the Apricot Appeal panel.  After stamping a stem from the “For All you Do” stamp set, it was attached to an 1/8” larger piece of Apricot Appeal Cardstock and that, in turn was attached to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Vellum was attached with tombow adhesive directly to the card… it is invisible because it is covered by the apricot/vanilla stamped piece.  

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Apricot Appeal, Vellum

Classic Inks:  Basic Gray, Mellow Moss, Apricot Appeal

Stampin’ Supplies:  Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper, Bashful Blue Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon, Basic Gray (or Chocolate Chip) Corduroy Buttons, Sponge Daubers, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Pin It!

I like how you used a dauber to dye your flower to the color you wanted. Great tip. Thanks for sharing.
