Wildflower Meadow

Wildflower Meadow is one of the Stampin' Up! stamps that I purchased on preorder when it became available.  I made up this card and used it in my Clubs and Classes last month.  Love the bright, cheerful colors on it combined with the Garden Gingham designer Paper.  I knew I only wanted to use a portion of the large background stamp.  And, although I didn't use it, I am happy that there is a coordinating embossing folder to go along with it!



Here are the details!

  1. Base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Daffodil Delight, folded in half.  I embossed the front with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
  2. I added a 2 x 5 1/2 strip of Garden Gingham across the bottom, then used a 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of the reverse side to hide the seam.
  3. I inked up the Wildflower Meadow image with my Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Markers, then stamped it on Whisper White.  I cut with the Oval Framelits.
  4. I cut the next largest size of Oval Framelit from Melon Mambo, and pierced around the edges.
  5. I adhered them together, then placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. A little bit of Night of Navy 1/4" Stitched Ribbon tied in a knot goes on the stem.  (See all my RIBBON SHARES here!)
  7. Finally, I stamped Happy Birthday from the hostess only stamp set, Banner Greetings, with Night of Navy ink.  I tucked it in between the sides of the ovals and adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional!

Oh Connie…this is the most different idea I've seen of this stamp and bundle…it is really my favorite of all of the new DSPs and the bundle.  Thank you for sharing that you used Melon Mambo – on my screen it looks read…but still a great match!    TFS!
