Because I Care - Markers on the Stamp

This card is made with one of the Level 1 Hostess sets: Because I Care. The sentiment in this set is perfect for a get well or sympathy card. Yet its non-specific enough that is could just be a Thinking of You, or birthday or gift card too.

The flower and leaves are a single stamp, so this calls for a little creative inking to get the 2 different colors like you see on the card. First ink the flower itself with Pink Pirouette. Then go back over the stem with the Pear Pizzaz Marker. Remember to "huff" before stamping.

The 5/8" black statin ribbon is pleated in the front and a Self-StickPearl added for a little bling. I used Mini Glue Dots to hold the pleats.

As I said, this is a Hostess Set, which means you can NOT buy this set, it is available only to Hostesses based on sales at their party.  Call me for more details or check out the Hostess Benefits on pages 10-16 of the Ideas Book and Catalog.  By the way, all this month is Stampin-UP!'s Sale-a-bration promotion. This means that every $50 purchase earns you a free item from the Sale-a-bration brochure. Check out all the catalog brochures here. And hostesses will earn an extra free item if their party sales reach over $300. Contact me to schedule your home party. Call (608-220-3450) or email for more information. I'd love to show you and your friends how much fun you can have stamping and all the great new products.
