Every Moment is special

Every Moment is the name of the stamp set that I used for this stepper card that is one of the new stamps in the new Stampin' Up! Ideas Book & Catalogue which goes live on this Wednesday. It has the daisy, the butterfly, the sentiment and another lovely stamp with a bird on a bush of rushes.
To stamp the three daisy's on this I had to make a mask to ensure I didn't stamp over another stamped image when I was creating the posy of daisy's. To make a mask you stamp the image on to a post-it note then cut it out. This means you can place and replace it over and over again.
I used Soft Suede for the background card and the Top Note Big Shot Die to create the shape. The other card is Very Vanilla. The button is Always Artichoke and is also cut out using a Sizzlet die the Stampin' Up! sell for the Big Shot Die cutting and embossing machine. The ribbon is twill and the thread is linen.
This Stepper Card tutorial is available to purchase on the right hand side of the blog.
Yesterday I was in Hamilton New Zealand for a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar which was great fun. Every time that Stampin' Up! demonstrators get together we do 'swaps' and this was my swap. Swaps are where you make an amount of the same card/project and you swap with each other. This is awesome cause you come home with a bunch of different projects and different styles. It gives you great ideas and it gives me something different to show my classes and customers.
There is so many great reasons to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so if you are thinking about what to do with your spare time contact me today
