Quint-Essentially Made

This past weekend I hosted a Stamp-A-Stack class.  We made 8 different cards that all highlighted new product from the catalog, and this was one of the cards that we made.  After my first look through the catalog, one of the stamps sets at the very top of my wish list was the set Made for You.  It's only 3 sentiment stamps, but I'm always on the look out for cute words and this set definitely fit that criteria for me! 

To get the two words on different banners, I used a marker to highlight and stamp one word at a time.  I used the Bitty Banners framelits die to cut out the words and my Primrose Petals marker around the edges of the banners. 

The other stamp this card uses is the Quint-Essential Flower (single stamp).  This is a cool stamp because it is designed to coordinate with at least 5 different punches.  So for example, for this card the same flower image was stamped 3 times with different colors and then I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch (Primrose Petals layer), the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch (So Saffron layer), and then the 1" Circle punch (Baja Breeze layer).  You could keep going and also use the 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches to add more layers. 

Instead of more layers for the center of the flower I opted to use one of the new Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons tied with White Baker's Twine.  This card also uses the new Chevron Embossing Folder.
