The Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set is my ‘go to’ set, I love the flowers and the set has a ‘bunch’ of lovely greetings in a beautiful cursive script. The fact that there is a coordinating set of framelit dies just adds to the usefulness of this set.
Sometimes I am a little stumped at which colors to use, Stampin’ UP! has 50 to choose from (I know black and white are not technically colors – but when you are ‘crafty’…….. well they can be colors!) Turning to the Designer Series Paper section of the annual catalog gives lots of inspiration and heaps of choices.
The Petal Garden DSP Stack has focused on Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pool Party and I have featured them in a number of projects, I flipped one of them over to find such a pretty Pool Party tone on tone which is the inspiration for today’s card.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Extra thick Whisper White ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 Pool Party Card
Layer 2: 4 x 3 Petal Garden DSP
Banner : 4 x 1 Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink Color: Pool Party
To keep with the mono color theme I used the 3/8 Shimmer Ribbon which is available in Pool Party.
I cut an oval in Whisper White using the largest of the Stitched Shape Framelits then stamped two flowers directly onto it. Then a 3rd flower stamped onto a scrap of whisper white card – you can either use the coordinating dies or fussy cut with a nice sharp pair of paper snips, it was added to the card with a Stampin’ dimensional to give it a little ‘pop’
As always – I add a decorated envelope to my cards, the Stampin’ UP! ones are specially designed for stamping on – the surface is wonderfully smooth so it takes the ink with nice clear images.
