A Reason to Smile

Good evening, stampers! (or morning, or afternoon - depending when you're reading this!) 
I hope that wherever you are, you're having as nice weather as we are here - hot & sunny - perfect summer weather :)

Today I was busy making a birthday card for my BFF - but I'm giving it to her tomorrow, so I won't post it quite yet!  Instead, I'll share with you a card I made with a new, Special Limited Edition set - 'A Reason to Smile'

This great stamp set is ONLY AVAILABLE FROM JULY 1st - 31st for ONLY $5 with any order of $60 or more (before s/h & taxes) - in your choice of either wood or clear mount!!  What a deal!!

Here's a picture of what you get in the set

And here's the 'For You' card I made.  I had made it for one of my son's teachers (one of the perks of being a SU! demonstrator - I got to order mine early!) to give with a year end gift.

Recipe: Whisper White card base; 1st layer: Cherry Cobbler card stock, embossed with the 'Polka Dots' embossing folder; 2nd Layer: Whisper white card stock, stamped with the 'A Reason to Smile'  large flowers in Raspberry Ripple (back 2) and Primrose Petals, the smaller flowers in Raspberry Ripple, and the leaves are from the Papaya Collage stamp set. I 'bunched' the 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler across the bottom, and popped up the 'For You' sentiment on dimensionals.  The sentiment I stamped with the new 'Layered Labels' stamp, and die cut it with the matching 'Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies'.  I tell you - I love the framelits that match the stamp sets!!  It makes stamping and cutting so quick, and so professional looking! :)  To finish off the card, I adhered 3 small pearl accents in the left corner.

Now - if you want to own this versatile stamp set for only $5.00 - you have to act quickly!!  Here's how to order:
