Stampin up apple blossom hostess stamps

Including a mini note card with a small gift is such a charming touch.  The sentiment and background stamp in today's project are both from Apple Blossoms, a Hostess Level 2 stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog.  The customer sales period begins July 1.


  • Stampin up mini note card stampin pretty These quick little cards measure 3 x 3 and tuck neatly inside the Stampin' Up! Whisper White Mini Square Envelopes (107301).
  • Ooo lah lah . . . the splashy colors (Concord Crush, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait) are part of the new In Color line up available July 1
  • The "supersized" 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch will be available for the first time in the new catalog, too. 
  • Adding a touch of texture really zoomed up the "wow" factor in the flower center.  I used the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (117335) for this sweet pattern.

    What a cute and simple card Mary!! I haven’t had much time to check your blog of late.. but as always, it is so very inspirational!

  5. Hey…I recognize this mini-card! Pam is right…they are even cuter in person. This color combo really packs a punch!

  6. I love these colors together. And the Concord Crush ‘thread’ through the Bitty Buttons is great! I’ll have to try tying it like that.

  7. wow what a POP! Love the color combo and I ‘never’ would have thought to put the poppy and peach together. Thanks for always giving such great inspiration.
