Green & Growing...Summer Smooches

I haven't been feeling well the last couple months, and I was so excited to get the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper...then just wasn't up to playing with it. By the way, tonight (April 30, 2012 at 11:50pm Mountain Time) is the deadline to order not only the Summer Smooches Sneak Peek products, but also products from the Occasions Mini catalog. Anyway, my one goal today was to get this card posted for you, and for me--as an entry in the SoShellicom Creative Challenge, themed Green & Growing.  As soon as I read the theme, this card was Green & Growing in my mind :-)  I started it early in the month but just finished it today. {Click photo for full-size image!}


All the printed paper is from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper pack, and the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon is from the Summer Smooches promotion also. I love how the green colored paper has lines on it--I just snipped right down those lines, then cut the tops at angles, and scrunched, to make the "grass" on the card! See those little tiny flowers at the top left and bottom right of the greeting? They are punched out of another piece of Summer Smooches DSP, using the little 4-petal flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. The flower punch fits perfectly over each of the little circles on that patterned piece of paper, for the perfect accent.

The greeting itself is actually a stamp available only to demonstrators to purchase. I got it at Convention last summer. Don't you wish you were a demonstrator, too? Guess what...Stampin' Up! has just come up with a NEW $99 Starter Kit, where you order ANY product you want, up to a retail value of $125. Stay tuned, I'll give you full details tomorrow.
