Pressed Flowers With Subtle Added Texture and Stitched Label Edges

Pressed Flowers

I sat and put together a batch of monotone cards yesterday in a lovely array of colours.

I used the beautiful Hostess stamp set Pressed Flowers for this project.

Stampin' Rewards Explained

Hostess sets are available to customers and demonstrators when you place a single order that totals over £150.  You receive what are referred to as Stampin' Rewards - a generous little bonus.  Stampin' Rewards go up in increments, so for a spend worth over £150, customers receive an extra 10% to spend on anything, which includes the exclusive Hostess Sets.

A spend in excess of £270 receives a 12% bonus spend.

For those spending in excess of £400 that increases to a whopping 14% worth of Stampin' Rewards to spend on anything that takes your fancy PLUS a half price item of your choice from the entire Stampin' Up! catalogue.

Texture & Faux Stitching

This gorgeous stamp set is my particular favourite Hostess Set.

I prepared the layers and coloured bases to coordinate with my stamped images.  Whilst they all looked really pretty, I wanted to add a little texture, and the new Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was just perfect.

Another "subtle" detail was to add some faux stitched edges using the Stitched Label Framelits Dies.

A little more texture was provided in the form of some pretty pearly embellishments - and "Bob's your Uncle" .... or so they say (such a funny little expression!)

Oh .... and the sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set.

Hope you likey and I hope you will pop back for a repeat visit.

Have a lovely relaxing weekend.  I am off to open my latest box of Stampin' Up! goodies.  I may even do a little "unboxing" video !!

Bye for now.
