3/30 Best of Flowers at Stamp Club! Featured Artist's Gina and Bonnie

Good Morning Friends! 

I love my stamp club.  More over, I love the people who come and visit me every SINGLE month and take the time out of the busy schedules to take a little time for themselves.  I try and make stamp club the one hour escape from the every day.  It's only once a month and my clubbers are like part of the family. 

Relationships have been formed and friends come together.  What really excites me is that friends meet here become closer and schedule time together outside club.  Grandmothers and granddaughters find a fun thing to bond over and more...  I love even more when creativity blossoms right in front of me. 

My girlfriends Gina and Bonnie have been stamping with me for over 6 years.  In fact, they have been demonstrators (for the discount mostly) on my team for just about that long too.  One thing I love about a bunch of smart, wonderful ladies gathering together is right here!  This month when Gina and Bonnie visited me, they took my "best of flowers" project from class and redesigned it a bit.  They so made it better.  (swoon!).  Instead of sharing my project from this month, I'd like to show you what they made during class.  First, here is Gina's version of the Best of Flowers card from class. 
I love the purple against the daffodil yellow.  She actually flipped my card from the original, and changed the daisy line so that it wasn't in a perfect row, but scattered.  I love her soft blender pen work on the center of the focal point and the soft and pretty sponging on the thank you banner. 

Here's a look at the Best of Flowers Stamp Set.  Three of these images are from sets across Stampin' Up!'s 25 years and one is a brand new, never seen before image.   I love the images in this one particularly!  The flower from "because I care" is much smaller in the new stamp set, so it coordinates with the one I have tucked away in the stash I'll never sell.  :) The "best of" stamp sets are only $14.95 plus tax (where applicable) and shipping. 
The small daisy stamp is a perfect fit for the 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch!  It makes a great border on this card.  My good friend Bonnie, made the border even more dispersed in this pretty card below. 

Aren't they beautiful? 
There are three "Best Of Sets" that have been released so far.  For each one, you get a "25" year anniversary sticker.  Collect 6 stickers and send the little post card into stampin up for a free stamp set ($14.95 or less). There will be a brand new "best of" set released on Monday!

Thanks for stopping by today!
