Sweet Summer

When I saw the Sale-A-Bration brochure, I knew this set, Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Summer, was the FIRST set I would order!  One…you can never have too many flower sets…and two…I loved the clean whimsical look of them!  I made over 50 of this card, some for my Control Freaks Sale-A-Bration swap and I took a few of them to Leadership with me!



I started with a base of Rich Razzleberry and layered on Pear Pizzazz that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  I added the stripe paper from Springtime Vintage Designer Paper in the Occasions Mini.  I wrapped some 1/4 Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain Ribbon around, tied a knot and secured it in the back. 


I stamped a Whisper White panel randomly with the leafy swirl image from Sweet Summer in both Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz to make my own "designer paper".  The focal flower, I stamped the stem in Pear Pizzazz and the top flower in Rich Razzleberry, added a Rhinestone Jewel to the center.  It is punched with the 1 3/4 circle punch and layered on the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle.  Finally, I stamped "Thanks" from Fabulous Phrases in Rich Razzleberry on the striped Designer Paper.


I liked how it turned out!

Connie, Great card, love the way you have made some cute DSP using the set as well.  I sent you an email saying I couldn't get the comment to work – turns out the issue was with me all along!
