Happy Monday!

Since I'm only a Stampin' Up hobby demo, there's no way I would be able to get any of the Level 2 or Level 3 hostess sets... well, unless I spend $300 worth of Stampin' Up goodies in one order, which it's really easy to do with all their wonderful stamps but I just couldn't afford that. Luckily, SU offers a hostess sets for pre-order for both level 2 and level 3 with a discount...cool huh!

Serene Spring is the set I ordered and I'm so glad I did and can you see the flowers? They are covered with Baby Pink Flower Soft, it adds texture and dimension to your cards... very pretty. You can check this video on how to use this product.

Happy Monday and see you tomorrow!

Stamps: Serene Spring by Stampin' Up

Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink DSP by Stampin' Up

Ink: StāzOn Jet Black and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Chocolate Chip gross grain ribbon and Baby Pink Flower Soft

you're not 'just' a hobby demo - don't discount yourself. I was blessed to be able to get a level 2and 3 with my open house order (only spent $55 of my own $ - otherwise I would not get any because I refuse to pay for sets *wink) I LOVE your card, it's so pretty - the flowers have so much dimension!
