Perfectly Preserved Bundle

There are so many wonderful new products in the Holiday Mini, but I think the Prefectly Preserved stamp set and the Cannery Framelits (on page 29) have to on the top of my favorites list.  What really cool too is that Stampin'Up! is now offering a 15% disscount if you order them together.  How cool is that!  They pair perfectly with the Orchard Harvest Designer paper (on page 28.)  I'm crazy for the whole canning thing.  This first card started out with me trying to use a MOJO Monday sketch #247.  If you go to the site, you'll see that they are now on #256 or something.....I like to print off the sketches and keep them in a folder for future use.  It really helps when you need a little creative inspiration.  I also used the new Woodgrain embossing folder plus a little ink rubbing to give the side strip a little texture.  Here is the funny thing, I completely forgot that I had a die to cut out the apples, so I hand cut them....I won't make that mistake again!

After making the first card, much to my surprise, I received a Starbucks Gift Card in the mail from my dentist, so I decided to send him a thank you card. I used the same sketch, but changed up the stamped images. I use the new silver Stampin'Up Dazzle marker (#128978 page 19 in the Holiday mini) to color in the spoon and I'll have to tell's the first metallic pen I've ever had that didn't run me out of the room by just taking the cap off.  Love it!  I'm sorry to say that the coffee stamps are not Stampin'Up!, but I wanted to share the card with you anyway.
