Summer Smooches Birthday Card

I need to get on the stick and create some more with the Summer Smooches bundle of products. One of the perks of being a demonstrator is getting to pre-order products before they become available for sale to everyone.  So I was able to order the Summer Smooches bundle last month.  And I actually got the stamp set back in January – it was the gift we got at the Manager’s Reception at the Leadership conference.  But I haven’t played a lot with all my stuff so I really need to do that.  Here is one card that I created –

The idea for this card was based on a card that another demonstrator created (I need to figure out who and where I saw it).  I did make some changes – if I remember correctly – I added a Lucky Limeade card base (I believe the original card I saw was white).  I added texture to the largest oval shape – Oh by the way the three ovals that you see that is a Big Shot Die – did you know we had one that has 3 ovals on it?  I forget about it sometimes.  The smallest oval I added for the sentiment – I used the Sincere Salutations stamp set – it’s an old one – I have it from before I was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – so it’s been around for a while – I wonder if it will make it into the new catalog or if it is going to be on the retired list.  We’ll know in a few days. I also added the Real Red ribbon – I don’t think the original card I saw had any ribbon.

I used my Clear Blocks and mounted both vases on one block together.  Then used my Stampin’ Write markers to color them and stamp on the medium oval.  I stamped the flowers on extra white left from cutting the ovals and cut those out and popped them up.  Other than the cutting out part this is a quick card.

One more thing to note – Stampin’ Up! has updated the Clearance Rack – so head on over to my online store on my website and see what’s there.  Good deals that usually disappear fast.  I think they are making room for all the new things coming soon in our new catalog – June 1st!
