BLAST FROM THE PAST

As this posts, I'm at our weSTAMP meeting and swap. Our swap theme for this evening is to use a stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration '09 catalog. I took this card on the left that I designed eons ago with Bud Basics, and brought it into 2009 with Polka Dot Punches stamp set, Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, and Certainly Celery Poly-Twill Ribbon - all from the the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Earn a free stamp set, designer paper pack, or ribbon bundle with every $50 purchase now through March 31. Contact me today to place your Stampin' Up! order and earn the free products used in the card below! nrileycm@cox.net

RECIPE
Stamps: Polka Dot Punches (SAB '09), Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Delicate Dots DP (SAB '09), So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery CS
Ink: Basic Black, Versamark
Embellishments: 5/8" Certainly Celery Poly-Twill Ribbon (SAB '09), Bashful Blue Brads
Tools: 5-Petal Flower Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Card details:
* The Polka Dot Punches flower image was stamped with Versamark along the right side of the So Saffron cardstock base.
* The main image panel is from the Delicate Dots DP pack (Whisper White with So Saffron flowers).
* The flower from Polka Dot Punches was stamped in Basic Black onto Bashful Blue, and cut out with scissors. The So Saffron and Certainly Celery layers of the flowers were punched out using the 5-Petal Flower Punch. The 1/2" circle centers were punched out of more designer paper from the Delicate Dots DP pack. A Bashful Blue Brad adorns the center of each flower.
* The main panel and each flower is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

I think this proves right there that some stamp sets are strangely similar...
I love CASE'ing myself once in a while, too - it's a great way to design workshop or club projects quickly!
