Bouquet Bunch – TSSC122

I loved Mary Jo's Technostamper Lunchtime Sketch this week, so I had to find some time to make a card up real quick!  Stampin' Up!'s Bouquet Bunch stamp set is still sitting out on my desk, so I grabbed it for this card.


I started by cutting the Whisper White oval with the Ovals #2 Bigz Die, I used the largest one.  I made a mask of the flower pot, so I could slightly stack them behind each other.  I stamped the pots in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  Then I stamped the long stem, leaves and flowers to fill the pots.  I used my Sponge Daubers and colored the flowers with Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie in one pot and Regal Rose and Ruby Red in the other pot.  The pot with leaves I colored with Old Olive and Garden Green.


Then I used Kaleidoscope Designer Paper for the background behind the Oval element.  I layered the print pattern on Garden Green Cardstock.  I wrapped some So Saffron Striped Ribbon around and tied with a knot.  I stamped Thank You from Stampin' Up!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes in Chocolate Chip on So Saffron, then punched with the Curly Label Punch.  All this was placed on a layer of Regal Rose Cardstock and then the base of So Saffron cardstock. 


Finally, I stamped the leaves again with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink four times and colored with the Old Olive and Garden Green Classic Inks.  I punched them out with the 1" Circle Punch and adhered them in a row at the bottom of the card.


A fun sketch!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Connie this is so pretty.  I did not get this set because I was thinking I had too many like it but of course you will probably change my mind.  I think that you and a few others should get bonuses for sales that you create with your art! Thanks for playing along with my sketch challenge!
