As a Special Promotion, customers can begin ordering a "special sneak peak" stamp set from the Fall Winter catalog entitled Fresh Cuts. As a special bonus, you may also order the 15 Fresh Cut Notes and envelopes for only an additional $5.00 during the promotion. The stamp set is die-cut which is sooooo easy and quick to mount and start using. The note cards have a "laser cut" flower which can be altered in so many ways. The flower I made is taking the white petals off and stamping the background with the main stamp in bayou blue. I stamped the leafy vine stamp from the set on the petals so they weren't so plain looking. I then used the small oval punch to punch 5 ovals to set behind the white petals I had already taken off. Then I punched using the 5 petal flower punch and stamped the small flower in bayou blue from the set on whisper white cardstock and cut it out with my paper snips. I then adhered all the petals onto the card onto the remaining section of the flower left on the notecard and insert an ice rhinestone brad in the center for some bling. As an afterthought, this card would REALLY look pretty using your two way glue pen to color the solid leaves on the main background and covering with dazzling diamonds or maybe even some cosmo glitter. I made some other notecards using different ways to offset the laser cut flower. Check them all out and come up with some of your own ideas. If you would like to earn this stamp set and the 15 notecards & envelopes for FREE, in addition to your regular hostess benefits contact me to hold a $400 workshop at either your home or mine. We will make more of these cute little cards and also some fun projects using the new eScape promotion items with the Circle of Friendship stamp set.
