Hope you are having a great weekend, it’s rather warm here today – mid 80’s, sunny and humid, they say by Wednesday it may be around 60 degrees.
Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge and I’m featuring one of the retiring stamp sets, Flower Patch, a photopolymer set featuring 19 stamps with a set of matching framelits Flower Fair, which are a separate purchase and includes 11 dies.
Flower Patch has all the shapes and sizes you’ll want plus great greetings and several stems for endless possibilities. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set, which gives you so many creative options–combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want. For my card, I decided to use the Party Animal Embellishments and matching Designer Series Paper.
Here is the sketch for the challenge, click on the image for the Paper Craft Crew blog post.
To create my card I first decided that I want a Tangerine Tango flower with Pacific Point leaves, so I stamped with image with newly re-inked stamp pads for a clear crisp image, next I die cut them out. The 4.25″ x 5″ of Party Animal Designer series paper is on a mat of Pacific Point card stock and a Tip Top Taupe card base. The layering squares framelits where used for the scallop square and designer series paper square in the center of the card. The flower was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and leaves with liquid glue. Sentiment banner was adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the far right side and glue dot on the left. Party hat embellishment was adhered with mini glue dots as was the bow. To finish off the card are a few rhinestones. Currently rhinestones are sold out but returning June 1st in the new catalog with a different configuration.
Some of the supply products used are on the retired list, may be sold out and are only available only while supply lasts. Retiring stamp sets are available until May 22nd, then while supplies last. Numerous products can be substituted to recreate these cards.
