Fond Farewell

 When Stampin' Up introduces the new hostess stamp sets every year we know we only have them to demonstrate for a year.  There are always lots of great hostess sets in each catalog and this year one of my favorites has been the hydrangea in the Because I Care set.  This has been a versatile flower even though at first look it seems like it is "just a flower" stamp.

It makes a great focal point for a card, I love the smaller single flower stamp that you can stamp and cut out to add dimension to the larger flower.  Of course, a butterfly and ribbon are always great touches.

As great as it is as a focal point, it is also great as a background stamp  It is stamped and embossed with the  Square Lattice Embossing Folder for the So Saffron card. 

It is a great size stamp for scrapbook pages too.  I used it as a focal point as well as background for the stamped mats across the bottom of the pages on the layout.

Since it is a hostess set, you can get it free!  I do have a few days with space for you to have your party to earn this wonderful stamp set for yourself.  It ends the last day of June though so hurry and let me know when you want to book your workshop.
