QUICK & EASY ARTISTICALLY ASIAN

Hi, Stampers!
     Just two things before we get started on this card:  I apologize if I got you excited for the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and that you could order on September 1 in my last post.  That was incorrect.  The effective date of the HC is September 5.. Second, don't forget, Stamp Camp is next Saturday, August 25!  Once again, I will have projects sheets for you!  Please don't forget to RSVP by the end of the day Monday.  Thanks!  Now, on to our card.
     Some of the patterns in the Share What You Love Specialty DSP felt oriental to me, so I decided to pair one of them with the Artistically Asian stamp set.  I've added a close-up so you can see the lovely pearl satin sheen on the flowers.  Four of the patterns in this pack have pearl/satin accents.  
     Unfortunately, some of the cards we need the fastest are sympathy, get-well and thank you, and Artistically Asian works for all.  Click on the images below to view the the DSP and included sentiments on my SU! online store.
     Wonder what the Japanese writing/symbols mean?  I'm told that the one I used above means "friendship," and the other, "faith."  Let's get started.

WARM APPLE PIE by Debbie

Hi, Stampers!
    Trying to get back into the stampin' routine, so since it's so, so hot outside, thought I would stay in and play.  I saw a tutorial for this "pie" card by Debbie Henderson, but didn't totally CASE it.  I only had some of the items she used and because I'm an inside-the-box stamper, generally, I wanted my pie to look even more "real."  I even added a pie pan! Let's get started.
