One of the most amazing ideas I saw at Convention, and adored, was a very, very clever way to use the umbrella in Rue Des Fleurs as a dress!  Now, I’m so sorry, I don’t know who to credit for this amazing dress.  There could be others out there on the internet, but my inspiration came from the very clever demo who displayed her work at Convention in Canberra – and the project was amazing too!  If anyone can tell who this lady was or provide a link for my inspiration, please do! 

I made this card slightly different to the one I saw at Convention (it was embossed in gold and coloured with Cherry Cobbler), but this card was for a good friend’s daughter, who is turning 10, so more pink was appropriate!  I embossed the image using clear Versamark, inking in Cherry Cobbler and then the Cherry scented Embossing Powder – so this project has a YUMMY smell :)  I coloured in some of the embossed image with my Pink Pirouette market. 

I used the stamp sets, Rue Des Fleurs and the sentiment from Bring on the Cake.  I’ve used the colour combination Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Pear Pizzazz. 

The itty bitty flower shapes punch was perfect for the flowers, which I scrunched up and sponged before popping a pearl on each flower.  A little sponging the Very Vanilla edge finished off the card!  Now that you’ve seen an alternative use for this stamp set – don’t you feel justified in wanting to buy it (if you haven’t already!). 

If you really want it, because you’ve been inspired like I was inspired, you can see more than one use for this lovely stamp set, and you live in Australia, simply email me at rachel.capps@yahoo.com.au, mention this post by saying “you feel justified”, place your order with me for this stamp set at $42.94 (clear mount) or $53.95 (wood mount) and I will arrange for it to be shipped to you, where ever you want (home or work), for FREE.  This is a once-only offer which ends with the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue on 31 July 2012.

Thanks for looking :)
