Over at OWH the midweek throwdown is to make a card with flowers. I had some ideas brewing in my head about what to make, but just got to make it tonight. This challenge actually made me realize that I have very few stamp sets with flowers in them! Well, I took care of that right quick and put in an order through my Stampin’ Up demonstrator for the Petite Petals Bundle. 🙂 But until that arrives, I will just have to use what is in my stash. I do have the Mixed Bunch set from Stampin’ Up so I pulled that out and got to work:
For the most part this was a pretty simple card. A little fussy with the cutting of the strips, but overall easily done. I tend to like to make things look a bit more contemporary which I believe is why I lean more toward non-flower stamp sets. This is not to say flowers can’t look totally current and now, but I just have more trouble creating them in that way. The block design and tiered stripes I used on this card was my attempt to make a contemporary look. So did I pull it off?
Supplies used (All Stampin’ Up Products):
- Inks: Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Sahara Sand
- Stamps: Mixed Bunch and Just Sayin’
- Tools: Word Bubbles die
- Emblishments: Candy Dots in the same colors as the inks used

Hope everyone is getting their weekend off to a great start!
