Flower Fest

I'm SO sad this set is being retired!  I have used it sooooo much.  One of those Go-To stamp sets for me.  Here is a quick one I put together.  I used the sketch from the Create with Connie and Mary challenge this week!  There is still time to play along!



This piece of Designer Paper from Just Add Cake package has literally been adhered TO my desk for weeks.  I had planned to use it on a different card, then ended up taking it off…but it was still sticky.  It was too good to throw away.  When I saw the sketch, I knew I could put it to good use!


I started with a base of Marina Mist.  I layered on the Just Add Cake Designer Paper across the bottom.  I added a strip of Poppy Parade punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  I stamped two flowers with Poppy Parade on Daffodil Delight and punched them with the 5 petal punch.  I added red flower buttons tied with White bakers Twine in the centers and Wild Wasabi leaves cut out and placed around them.  Finally, I inked up the greeting from Full of Life…another stamp set that will be retired…with my Stampin' Write Markers and stamped it on Whisper White, then cut it with the Label Framelit.  The flowers are popped up around the greeting.  What a fun summery looking card!  Enjoy!

So bright & fun!  I keep looking at Flower fest since I just love those flowers, leaves & butterflies.  Not sure why I keep resisting.  Maybe since I have so many flower stamps as it is.  This one is just so pretty though & looks so nice embossed white on a dark color.  Hmmmm, really need to decide soon before it's too late.  I'll probably need to include it, or I'll be sorry like last time when I tried to be good & resist the urge to buy when things were retiring.
