2 sleeps to go!

There's 2 sleeps until the Craft Show, and 2 sleeps until I fly off to Queensland for the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip. Getting ready for both of those BIG events means that things have been a little hectic around here!
This card would look familiar to you if you were a guest at one of my workshops during June or July. I thought I'd pop it up here since our make-and-take at the show uses the gorgeous Baroque Motifs set, and it's always helpful to see the same set used in a few different ways!

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! Australia
It's so easy to make quick, but elegant cards using this set.
To make this card, stamp the flourish stamp in River Rock ink, and then stamp the small flower several times in Blue Bayou ink without re-inking (this is called the fade-out technique). Tie River Rock Double-Stitched ribbon around your stamped panel, attach to a piece of Blue Bayou card and then attach to your cardfront. The sentiment is simply layers of circle punches: the scallop circle, 1 3/8", 1/1/4"and 3/4" circles. I rock'n'rolled the small flower this time: ink it up in Soft Sky ink, then roll the edges of the stamp in Blue Bayou ink before stamping onto Whisper White cardstock. I popped it up using a Dimensional.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Think Happy Thoughts
Ink: River Rock, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Whisper White, River Rock
Other: Scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle, 3/4" circle, Dimensionals


  1. Beautiful card, Marelle! I don't get to visit your blog as often as I'd like. I have given you a new award. You'll find it here:
