Inthespotlight_2  In the Spotlight is a level 2 hostess-only set in Stampin’ Up!’s fall – winter collection ’07.  [Am I the only one subjected to a bit too much Treehouse TV?  Everytime I hear the name of this stamp set, I think of the children’s TV show "Timothy Goes to School"….they have "In the Spotlight" time which is like a vip day or special me day, or show & tell …. whatever they may call it at your child’s school.  Anyway, I digress.]

The name aside, I love this set!!  I love how I can use my Stampin’ Up! punches with it, because you may know that I don’t like fiddly time consuming cutting.  This was one of the cards we did at my Stamp a Stack for World Card Making Day October 6th. 

All supplies Stampin’ Up!:  cardstock: purely pomegranate, whisper white & soft sky.  Inks: wild wasabi, blue bayou, purely pomegranate, (yes, I am also loving those 2007-2008 "in colours"!!) so saffron.  Accessories: 3/8" circle punch, 5 petal flower punch; paper piercer & silver brad.

I stamped 3 of each circle image onto scrap paper, then punched with the 3/8" circle punch (albeit some of them a little more centered than others!).  Adhered these to the soft sky cardstock, and mounted onto whisper white.  I quite enjoyed the fact that the white was used as the layer on this card, not as the base for the main image.  Stamped the larger flower image twice, once in so saffron & once in wild wasabi, then used the 5 petal punch to make a perfect cut out.  Love it!! Fast & easy.  Used my paper piercer to create a hole & then fastened them together with a silver brad.  Mounted onto a purely pomegranate card which was randomly stamped with another image from the set (perhaps I could have been a bit more generous with the stamping there, ah well, that will be for the next time I recreate this card!).
