In the next couple of days the 2017 – 2018 catalog will retire and so will some of the products within it. Flirty Flamingo has been one of the In-colors for the last 2 years and it is due to retire too………….. BUT it is coming back in the new 2018 – 2019 catalog as one of the new core colors…. so Goodbye and Hello Flirty Flamingo!
I also reached out for one of my favorite stamp sets – partly because it has flowers and partly because it has some lovely greetings – if you are looking for a versatile stamp set….. look no further than Beautiful Bouquet.

Beautiful Bouquet is a photopolymer stamp set so it is very easy to line up the images to build up your flower – I stamped the stem first then the tiny flower buds. I practiced on a scrap of paper beforehand just so I could get the stamp the right way up and my ‘eye’ in for lining up!
I chose to use Pear Pizzazz because it has a coordinating ribbon, 3/8 Shimmer Ribbon, as I have said in the past ~ my color choices are often driven by the ribbon in my drawer!
The greeting is cut with the 1 3/8 scalloped circle punch then layered onto 1 1/2 circle cut from the same Pear Pizzazz card.
Another thing I have overlooked recently is Dazzling Diamonds glitter – it has been sitting there quietly waiting to be noticed again – so I used a little of the fine tip glue pen on the center of each flower then sprinkled over a little Dazzling Diamonds – it gives a subtle sheen and it is just noticeable in the picture.
