Best Thoughts

I am going on the record and saying that this year's Stampin' Up! hostess sets are wonderful!  The first one I want to share with you is Best Thoughts.  Love the big flower and the font is the best.  More sentiments with that font please.

Best Thoughts

I stamped the flower but decided I didn't want to color it so I decided to do some paper piecing.  I stamped and embossed the image on some DSP from the Cherry On Top paper stack.  The 6 x 6 paper stacks in the catalog are wonderful.  I like that there is a subtler pattern on the flip side of a bolder patterned sheet.

I stamped and embossed the image again and cut out a few flowers to pop up so it wouldn't be so flat.  Next time I am going to use different stacks of Stampin Dimensionals which will make the flowers pop even more.

The new Brick Wall embossing folder which is 6" x 6", is going to be a "go to" folder.  I love the way it adds texture without stealing the show.  I stamped the sentiment before I used the embossing folder.  Believe me it is MUCH easier to stamp the sentiment before than trying to stamp it after you have embossed.

These sentiment will be used a lot.  I think it works for lots of different situations.  Are you wondering, how do you get this awesome set?  Since this is a hostess set, you need to either have a qualifying workshop/party or place a qualifying order.  If this sounds like something you would like to do, please contact me and we can work out the details.
