Fresh Cut Notes

This month, Stampin' Up! is doing an awesome "sneak peek" promotion of two items that will be in the upcoming Fall-Winter Catalog!

Here is the promotion flyer...

The Fresh Cuts stamp set is $21.95 and the Fresh Cut Notes are regularly $8.95 for 15 laser-cut 4 x 4 cards & 15 envelopes. But right now if you buy the stamp set, you get the Note Cards for only $5!

Also, if you hold a workshop totaling $400 or more, you get both the stamp set and the note cards for FREE! Plus the regular Hostess benefits!! The Fresh Cuts promotion is only available during the month of June...

The picture below shows all 5 stamps that are included in the set, as well as how the Notes are laser-cut. I only removed 3 of the 5 petals on the one card, to show you how they pop out. Also, the stamps are all DIE CUT! (The paper background is the Afternoon Tea DSP, and of course is not included with the stamp set or note cards.)

My Thurs AM Stamping Club this month made this card using both the "sneak peek" Fresh Cuts stamp set and Fresh Cut Notes. They got their choice of color: Old Olive, Pumkpin Pie, or Rose Red.

I used Whisper White craft ink on the background stamp and stamped the entire front of the note card. I covered the image with clear embossing powder and set with the heat tool. Then I sponged color over the embossed image and wiped the excess ink from embossing with a paper towel. That way the white really "pops" through the sponging.

The embellishments in the center are, from front to back, clear Rhinestone brad from the Pretties set, the Flower Fusions, and the 5-Petal Punch.

To get the reverse stamped image for the inside of the flower, I stamped the background image on another piece of Whisper White CS using classic ink and then attactched it to the inside using Dimentionals. Here is a close-up...Can you see how the patterns line up, but in opposite colors?
