Fabulous Florets for STS21


Greetings, Friends! It's time for another great challenge at Seize the Sketch, and this week the uber-talented Lori Turner has a great simple sketch for us which leaves lots of room for interpretation. Love it! 


I used lots of retiring Stampin' Up products for this card (you can see which ones in my list of ingredients below), including my much loved Fabulous Florets Stamp Set. 


The leaves in the background were embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, and the flowers with Early Espresso Embossing Powder. They were cut out by hand and sponged with a bit of Summer Starfruit Ink.


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Fabulous Florets*
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Gumball Green*, Summer Starfruit
Ink Pads: Versamark, Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit*
Tools: Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder*, Scallop Trim Border Punch*, Heat Tool, Sponge Dauber
Accessories: Neutrals Buttons, Linen Thread, Natural Trim*, Clear & Early Espresso Embossing Powders

*Products retiring June 4, 2014

Please play along with us this week at Seize the SketchStop by and say hello to the rest of our awesome Design Team, too!


Inky hugs!

This is a great card! This is one of my favorite stamp sets too. I will not send it out to pasture, it will still find its way to my cards for the future. Lots of new stuff too! But sometimes you just have one that you cannot let go of, Fabulous Florets is one of mine!
