My Stampin' Up! Classes

Friends are Blessings from Heaven

Look at this close-up of a vintage button for a Sneak Peek of what's coming up in the 2013-2014 annual SU! catalog. My tip: When you don't have matching ribbon, or skinny enough ribbon, use your paper trimmer to cut a skinny strip to thread the button.
I made this birthday card for my friend, Sue, using three different Very Vintage Designer button designs (new catalog item!) on Blossom-punched flowers. Sue loves the color purple. In addition to the card, I brought her a huge bunch of lilacs from my yard, and lunch from a favorite Chinese restaurant. We had a really nice visit this afternoon, and left each other with plans to have lunch again next month for my birthday.
I had International Bazaar dsp on my desk from making all of the butterfly treats for the teachers earlier this morning (see the post below), so I grabbed this pattern for the flowers, backing the middle one with a punched Rich Razzleberry flower. For the sentiment - from the Blessings from Heaven stamp set - I used the Decorative Label Punch first, then a new punch called Artisan Label punch for the sides.

Ink: Rich Razzleberry pad;
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Rich Razzleberry card stocks, International Bazaar dsp;
Accessories: Delicate Designs folder, Big Shot, crochet trim, Blossom punch, vVery Vintage Designer Buttons, dimensionals, Decorative Label punch, Artisan Label punch.

Oh what a great find, we still have my dh's from when he was a kid in the 60s (the box is barely still glued, lol!) Lovely card, perfect for the guys in our lives! TFS!
