Flower Patch: Color My World DSC#177


Flower Patch is the Perfect Stamp Set to Celebrate Color!

DSC#177

Color My World with Stampin' Up! Flower Patch Stamp Set!  The colors in this weeks challenge are perfect to create a beautiful arrangement of flowers for this 'Blooming Birthday' card.  Give it to someone special! 
The background was embossed with Stampin' Up! Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Marina Mist Cardstock.  Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set using Wisteria Wonder Ink for behind the flowers. The flowers were heat embossed using VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder.  Die cut the flowers and leaves with the Flower Fair Framelits.



Start with cutting two Night of Navy cardstock 5 x 6 1/4 and  two Marina Mist cardstock 4 3/4 x 6.  Watercolor paper large enough to fit all the flowers and leaves to be heat embossed with VersaMark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.


Stamp images on to the watercolor paper with Marina Mist, Wisteria Wonder, and Pear Pizzazz Ink.  Stamp over images with VersaMark Ink.  Then emboss with the heating tool and clear embossing powder.


Die cut images with the Flower Fair Framelits and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.


Arrange die cut images on card.  I love this part of playing with all the beautiful pieces with so many possibilities.  I can just be creative and have fun!


Don't forget to have fun with the inside too!


Now for the sentiment tags mat with Night of Navy and Marina Mist cardstock using the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Stamp and sponge with Wisteria Wonder ink.  Add Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Cotton Ribbon to tags.


Emboss two cut Marina Mist cardstock with Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create background.


Using Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, stamp images both horizontally and vertically with Wisteria Wonder Ink in corner.  Repeat for inside of card.

t
Mat on Night of Navy for both front and inside of card.  Adhere flower arrangement over hash lines using dimensional tape.  Repeat on inside using snail permanent adhesive.


Add sentiment tags, and enjoy!


Oops! Almost forgot to add the bling!


Now enjoy!
