FLOWER PATCH

The Flower Patch bundle. Have you checked out this delightful offering in the big Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share catalog? The 19-piece photopolymer stamp set, found on page 156, when combined with the 11-piece Flower Fair Framelits set on page 230, is an unstoppable winner. Really, if you don't believe me, check out all the fun ideas on pages 154 and 155 in the catalog. And, when you purchase it as a bundle, you save 15% off the price of buying them separately. 

I was so excited when I finally got this bundle in my greedy little hands! Unfortunately, it was a few days before I could get some creating done with it. Here is what I finally came up with:


I knew I wanted to use the Large Polka Dot embossing folder on a crispy Whisper White background. But, when I set all the flowers and leaves against that background, it fell way short. I hate to admit it, but I rarely use Washi Tape in my work lately. I don't know why. It is so versatile and easy to work with. 

So, on a whim, before mounting my embossed piece to the card base, I added three strips of the Washi Tape from the Retro Fresh set (found on page 190). Adorable, wouldn't you say?

I used the retired Curly Cute stamp set for my sentiment and cut it out with one of the Framelits from the Project Life Cards & Labels set (page 230). The white-against-white wasn't striking enough. So, I cut a piece of cardstock to act as a little mat for the label, and edged the top and bottom with more of the Washi Tape. 


When seen from the front, the flowers show lots of dimension. But . . .


. . . from the side, those flower layers really P.O.P.! 




Why don't you consider joining me in the Flower Patch and order a bundle for yourself? I would love to be your demonstrator!
