Overwhelmed with Flower Patch Awesomeness!

flower1

I’m soooooo excited!!!  I recently received the Flower Patch Stamp Set/Flower Fair Framelits Die Bundle in the mail from friend Deb Cozzone.  I’ve seen so many beautiful cards made with this bundle that I can’t wait to spend a full day “in the zone” playing with these new lovelies.

field5I spent most of this past weekend at a marching band competition in Jacksonville, AL. My son (bass drummer on the left in the foreground) and I returned to Woodstock, GA at 3:30 am Sunday morning! We had a fabulous day. And the Marching Knights had great success! But … We. Were. Exhausted!!!  I slept until 12:30 the following day!  But in my delirium Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t wait to start “playing” so I made the card shown above.

There is sooo much potential with the Flower Patch stamp set and the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits. I’m sure this will be just the tip of the iceberg from me.  I can see a series of posts featuring this one stamp set/framelit bundle in the near future … 🙂

Steps for this card:

The base:
1) Cut a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock and score and fold it  to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.
2) Run a 2-3/4 x 4-1/4 piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.
3) With a piece of 3-1/8 x 4-5/8 Daffodil Delight, assemble all three layers for the base as pictured.
The flower and leaves:
4) Stamp the flower with Daffodil Delight, Hello Honey and Chocolate Chip and the leaves with Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. Run them through the Big Shot with the Flower Fair Framelits Dies.
Greeting banner:
5) Stamp the greeting on Whisper White.  Cut a banner edge with our fabulouso Paper Snips, a framelit or the corner of a square punch. Frame this with Old Olive cardstock and create a banner edge to that layer too.  Adhere to card.
Final Assembly:
6) I used retired stamp set Itty Bitty Backgrounds to splatter a little Chocolate Chip ink on the banner, flower and edges of the base card.  You could also use Gorgeous Grunge sparingly or the splatter stamp from the Frightful Wreath stamp set.
7) Use two layers of Stampin’ Dimensionals for the flower to really pop it up.
8) Glue the top leaf to the base of the card with the pointed end slightly under the flower.
9) To adhere the second leaf, use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the outer edge of the leaf and use glue when inserting the inner edge of the leaf slightly uner the flower as shown.
