Friends Never Fade - Stampin Up Stamp A Stack of cards

Tomorrow night sees the last of my Stampin' Up! Stamp A Stack classes for this year, and I have some great cards to show you. 

I decided to use 2 of the sets that are featured in our December Frenzy Brochure:

Awash With Flowers
Friends Never Fade

I really like both these sets and am thrilled to be able to show them off to my customers. I'm even happier that they can get them at almost half price if they order them through December. Both these sets give you lots of different styled cards.

The first card uses "Friends Never Fade" clear mount stamp set.

Stampin' Up products used in this card are:

Confetti White for the card base
Early Espresso
Pretty in Pink
Whisper White

Pretty in Pink
Bravo Burgundy

Embossing Folders: 
Designer Frames

Satin Ribbon - Chocolate Chip
Aqua Painter
Spritzer Tool
Bravo Burgundy Stampin' Write Marker

The detail photo shows the use of the Spritzer Tool.  A wonderful tool for "aging" or distressing the image. You can also clearly see the lovely Designer Frame embossing folder that fits perfectly around this image. HINT: The best way to achieve this is to stamp the image first then position the embossing folder prior to passing it through the Big Shot. I used the Aqua Painter and some ink picked up from the lid of the ink pad to darken around the inside corners and highlight under the flower.

I stamped one of the complimentary images from the set onto the pink background card and sponged the edges before dry embossing it all with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I stamped the same image on the Confetti White after stamping off once to give me a soft image.

If you would like more information about the December Frenzy or would like to place an order for these discounted sets, you can contact me via my demonstrator business website
