Creating with Stampin'Up! Sale-a-bration FREE Softly Sophisticated Stamps & Embossing Folder

Today we're Creating with Stampin'Up! Sale-a-bration FREE Softly Sophisticated Stamps & Embossing Folder. This set is just that --a soft design and is combined with a totally beautiful embossing folder.  I'm almost sorry that it's SAB and won't carry over for years of use in our current projects & classes.

Here's ths stamp set and folder...

This is our card for today...


& here's a closer look...

Sorbet cu

Did you check out that stunning embossing in the background. It's a lovely design but it also stays in the background and let's the eye remain focused on the primary image.

This set is a 2-step stamp set so that we can have our stems/leaves and flowers in different colors...this makes stamping with multiple colors a breeze.

Hint: I usually stamp the leaves first and then the flowers--just my preference. When I stamp the flowers over the leaves I try to line up 3 points---if 3 points are in line then the remainder of the image falls into place. Most of thes 2-step stamps have a bit of leniency and perfection is not a requirement for a beautiful card.

The vase is created with the Countryside Corners die....we just simply cut the cardstock approximately the size we need for the vase and then die cut the base.

You'll see that we also used the deckled rectangle die for he focal layer---this adds a bit of interest that you don't see with a straight cut!

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
