Apothecary Art

I have a pretty card for you today, but first I wanted to share a few exciting announcements that were made by Stampin’ Up! this week. Our catalog and catalog schedule is changing a bit! First, the Annual Catalog will be unveiled a month early, June 2012! Then we will have 2 seasonal catalogs that will be larger than the mini catalogs and they will come out in August and January and as the name implies, they will house all of the seasonal stuff and will run 5 months instead of 3. I really think I am going to like this format.

We are also getting a new diagonal score board insert for our Simply Scored tool, for making envelopes and boxes and such! This should be available in March. It is a full sized board that will just sit on top of the Simply Scored. Only $11.95. I can’t wait for this!!

And on February 1st, we are releasing a one month FREE trial to My Digital Studio! What a great way to try out this neat program!

Apothecary Art

This is a fairly simple card, it just shows how the right tools can make quick work of creating cards. This one looks fairly elaborate, but it really just took a few quick steps. The new Labels Collection Framelits work with the Apothecary Art set { LOVE }. So I centered my framelit die, cut, and then embossed for the top layer. I stamped the image and colored it, using a smaller piece of card stock so that I could easily center it in the frame. Popped up the sentiment and then added a bow. Love the elegant look of this set! And I love the banners and sentiments that can be used with so many other sets, as well!

I hope you get to stamp today!
