Simply Sketched Hostess Set in Bermuda Bay


Today I am previewing for you one of the new hostess sets from the 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! catalog. This set is called Simply Sketched and includes 6 stamps including a bird, a flower and leaves with berries. It also includes three greetings – Thanks, Birthday and Sympathy.  This set is available to hostesses and customers who have orders of $200 or more. If you place a qualifying order from the new catalogue on May 31st, I recommend getting this set as one of your free items.


I heat embossed the flower with Basic Black embossing powder and then coloured the image with an aqua painter and Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz inks. I also stamped and heat embossed the greeting before punching it out with the oval punch.

Next I created a frame for the flower by using the new Modern Mosaic embossing folder and the 2-1/2″ circle punch

Finally I assembled the card using stampin’ dimensionals between layers.  


Are you excited to see Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz return? I love the vibrancy of both these colours.

I think it’s a poppy but I really wanted to use my new Bermuda Bay ink.
