Good evening, every Thursday I host Cuppa N Card at the lovely Fairchild’s Tearooms in Diss. If you haven’t already visited this quaint gem then you don’t know what you are missing. We make a card whilst enjoying a cuppa and yesterday I had the pleasure of my upline Sandra Roberts joining us.
With the retired list recently being released I thought I would bring out my Flower Shop Stamp Set and matching Pansy Punch. Once I had chosen my sets I then had to decide which colours to use. Having looked on Pinterest I found the combination of Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and Dapper Denim.
I stamped and punched the flowers and then stamped a smaller flower from another retiring set Blooms and Wishes which was then fussy cut. Blue splats was used from the Swirly Bird Set and finally leaves stamped with Wild Wasabi Ink from Painted Harvest which again were punched out with the Leaf Punch. This is why a love Stampin’ Up! So many stamps which have coordinating punches and dies..
Two Stitched shaped circle framelit dies were cut out on the Big Shot together to make a frame in Dapper Denim Card stock and then finally a cut a strip of whisper white card and made a fish tail one end with another stamp from Blooms and Wishes stamped on it and edgeded green ink. This was then all layered up and mounted on Whisper White and Rose Red Card stock.
With the above card I have blinged it up with some Rhinestones and Wink of Stella. I have also used a bone folder to curl the larger flowers to add dimention. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope!
