Stamping 411 – Flower Fest

Yep…what else!  Stampin' Up!'s Flower Fest is still out on my desk and I couldn't resist using it again on Stamping 411's sketch challenge this week!  It's a fun one this week!  Hope you play along! 



So, you can see why Flower Fest was perfect for the sketch, right?  Here is my card:



I used the textured cardstock and designer paper from Playful Polka Dots Scrappin' Kit that I had left over from another project to make this card.  I LOVE the patterns in the kit!  The base of the card is Old Olive.  I layered on textured Daffodil Delight that I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom.  I also added small Rhinestone Jewels in between each scallop.  Love that bling!  On top of the Daffodil Delight I used the Polka Dot DSP.  Then, for the accent piece on the sketch, I used some of the stripe paper in that kit.  Aren't those colors great?


I stamped the large flower from Flower Fest in Rose Red on the Textured Rose Red cardstock and used the Fancy Flower Punch.  I used a Pumpkin Pie large designer button in the center and tied a bow with the White Bakers Twine.  I stamped the 5 Petal flower with Pumpkin Pie on Daffodil Delight and used the 5 petal punch.  I added an Old Olive flower button tied with Bakers Twine in the center.  Then I stamped the leaves with Old Olive on the textured Old Olive and cut it out.  The large flower is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.


For my greeting, I stamped Just For You from Oval All Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval.  Then I stamped it again on Pumpkin Pie and punched with the Scallop Oval punch.  I layered the White on top and added a couple more Rhinestone Jewels.


Make sure to check out what the rest of the fabulous Operators did this time over on Stamping 411!  I can't wait to see their cards each week!
