Hostess Sets: Gift of Love Cards. Stampin' Up! Australia.

If you haven't taken a look at the hostess sets on page 198-201 of the catalogue, then you are missing the best buy in stamps! These stamp sets are priced well below retail value and are a great way to spend your Stampin' Rewards.

To make these cards you will need the Hostess stamp set Gift of Love #141796 , $AUD17.00, which can only be purchased with Stampin' Rewards (which you receive after your order totals $250 excluding shipping and handling)

*On a card base of Basic Black add a panel from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper #141648.
*Add a layering panel of Whisper White, and stamp your image with Basic Black Ink.
*Stamp Daffodil Delight flowers, then Cucumber Crush for the leaves. 
*Using an aqua painter, pick up some ink from the lid of your pad and flick some Daffodil Delight across the page. 
*Wrap some linen thread around the panel and staple a small edge of doily onto the front. 
*Use versamark ink to stamp the greeting on a small piece of basic black card stock, then emboss with white embossing powder (be sure to use your embossing buddy first). 
*Adhere all the pieces with fast fuse or snail.

The thing I like the most about this next card is the pretty, soft colour.
*On a panel of Watercolour Paper using your aqua painter do a quick wash of Pink Pirouette and So Saffron inks. Set aside to dry.
*Next stamp Basic Grey archival ink onto a seperate piece of watercolour paper,   and using your aqua painter colour the flowers in Pink Pirouette. Add a tiny amount of Rose red in the centres and blend outwards.
*Colour the stems in Old Olive ink. Set aside to dry.
*Come back to the original watercolour washed piece and stamp the greeting in Soft Suede Ink.
*Flick some Soft Suede ink across the page using your aqua painter.  Set aside to dry.
*Cut out the floral image with your paper snips.
*Adhere a strip of Very Vanilla Lace Trim #141672 under the greeting with mini glue dots.
*Pop up the floral image on dimensionals.
*Adhere to a Watercolour paper card base with dimensionals.

These are really pretty projects and I hope you give them a try!
Happy Crafting,
