New In-Colors…

I’m so excited to show you this piece today that showcases the new in-colors.  But I have to tell you this is totally CASED from Krista Frattin who is a member of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team.

Take a look…


Doesn’t that just make you want every single color?  I’m not sure how she backed hers or put it together but I’ll give you directions on how I did mine.  I was just thinking this would be a great gift for someone who is in the hospital or ill rather than a bouquet of flowers.  Now my head is spinning off again.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits

  • A store bought frame with a 5 x 7 opening.  Save the glass to use as a palate for painting maybe.
  • Cut a 5 x 7 piece of cardstock for the base (I used Tip Top Taupe here) and stamp your sentiment.  The one here is from You Got This stamp set.
  • Get that Spiral Rose Die out and cut three flowers of each color.  I cut three at a time and it worked fine.
  • It had been a while since I “rolled a rose” but it came back to me.  You might want to do a little break down of the cardstock with your bone folder…just don’t get to energetic and tear your paper.
  • Cut 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip of four colors you didn’t use for the background piece and adhere to back piece you stamped with adhesive.
  • Hot glue your roses over corresponding color strip keeping them aligned a straight as possible.
  • Slip all the flowers inside your frame and enjoy!

I’m planning to keep this framed piece around for classes next month…then make a gift of it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I’ve got some ideas for Father’s Day cards…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


You know…”junk in the trunk”!

Get yourself inky…you will BE Happy!
