A Flair for Stampin’ Up!

Stampin up fall flair pacific point

I decided to play along with this week's Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge FS76.  SCS Member susiestampalot has a gorgeous gallery and I opted to take inspiration from her layout in this card.  I changed the colors, grabbed my new Fall Flair stamp set (Hostess Level 2) and gave it a modern twist.  To see all my Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter Sneak Peek samples (available Aug. 11), click here.

Stampin up fall flair sparkle
Pacific Point (Fall/Winter In Color Collection), More Mustard and Very Vanilla take the stage.  I stamped the  Pacific Point (blue) flower on Very Vanilla card stock and added blue Robin's Nest Dewdrops (Cowboy Collection) for their centers.  I also inked the leaf stamp in Pacific Point and stamped it on More Mustard.  I snipped it out and mounted in on Stampin' Dimensionals for some 3-D action.  The image is matted on layers of Pacific Point and More Mustard card stock.

The horizontal banner offers another flower from the Fall Flair set.  It's inked in More Mustard and stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.   Using a template, I paper pierced along the top and bottom. 

My fourth (and favorite flower) image from this set was inked in Very Vanilla Craft Ink and stamped on Pacific Point card stock.  TIP:  Using Very Vanilla (or Whisper White) Craft Ink on a deep colors or dark card stock produces a lovely softness–the perfect balance for a background against a powerful main image. TIP:  I matted the Pacific Point layer on Very Vanilla card stock, purposely making it about a 1/4" extra wide.  This gave me an opportunity to run two rows of paper piercing, to keep things more interesting and unify the piercing of the horizontal banner.

The sentiment "sparkle" is from Warm Words.  It was dipped in Pacific Point ink and stamped on More Mustard card stock.  I punched it out with Stampin' Up!'s Small Oval Punch, which fits neatly into the Styled Silver label holder (only available in the Hodgepodge Hardware Kit from the expired Occasions Mini–I'm hoping this wonderful set returns in the Fall/Winter catalog on Aug. 11).  TIP:  A couple Circle Rhinestone Brads (Ice Collection) add some instant dazzle.  Everything was assembled together and adhered to a luscious More Mustard Textured card base (5.5 x 4.25").

Hugs and Pretties . . . . M
