Wings of Friendship Hostess Stamp Set

Handstamped Card

I decided to get creative with the Wings of Friendship stamp set which is a level 2 hostess set.  This is a beautiful stamp set and I had fun coming up with this card!

Stampin' Up! Satin Ribbon & Pretties Kit

I’ve been wanting to give this a try with ribbon.  I’ve seen a lot of people lapping the ribbon over and I decided to give it a try adding half pearls from the Pretties Kit.  It’s really easy to do the ribbon like this it just takes some extra ribbon and Sticky Strip.

Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware

Of course Hodgepodge Hardware is always one of my favorites.  I’m so glad the sentiment in this stamp set fits inside the Designer Label!

Adhesive-backed Rhinestone from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit

Remember the “diamonds” I used on the Stampin’ Bonnet yesterday?  Those rhinestones were in a strip from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit.  Today I want to show you that the Eggcellent Eggs Kit also has individual adhesive-backed rhinestones like the one I used in the middle of this flower.  I really hope Stampin’ Up! will start selling these outside of the kit.  I can see a lot of potential for them!

My handstamped card

To make the background of the card I used the vine stamp and stamped it all over in both Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke inks onto Mellow Moss cardstock and then sponged the edges with Always Artichoke.  For the bird stamp I used Stampin’ Write markers in Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke to ink up the stamp.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you’re enjoyed seeing my card!


  1. This is a gorgeous card! I love the background especially. And layering the ribbon like that is such a nice extra touch. Very pretty!
