One of my favourite stamp sets in the past was the now retired Mixed Bouquet. I loved the modern flowers and the variety of shapes and sizes in that stamp set.
So, I was thrilled to see Flower Fest in the upcoming Summer Mini 2011 catalogue because it reminds me so much of my old favourite. And Flower Fest features a big improvement – the flowers in this set all fit one of Stampin’ Up!’s punches. Yeah!
I wanted to create a clean and simple card for an upcoming class so I decided to stamp the flowers in Poppy Parade ink and then punch them out with the 1-3/8″ circle. I created a card of Crumb Cake cardstock with a layered Pear Pizzazz Top Note die.
I added layers of Poppy Parade and Whisper White cardstock with a polka dot patterned paper from the In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper is so versatile that I leave it out on my desk because I reach for it so often. Check it out on top of page 175 of the Idea Book & Catalogue.
To finish the card, I added Poppy Parade 1/2″ Stitched Ribbon and a greeting from another new stamp set, Happy Greetings.
