Retirement Rewind #5: Triple Treat Flower

Hey Stampers !!

It's a SUPER fall day here today !! I woke up this morning and there was frost EVERYWHERE !! All of the roofs on my street were white !! So, I figured I would post another fall type project today !! I love my Retirement Rewind series, so here is instalment #5 featuring the Triple Treat Flower. This single stamp was a HUGE hit last year (I am actually super surprised it was retired). At a great price (I believe it was $10.95) and coordinating with 3 different punches, its a match made in heaven ! But it was one of the free catalogue options for Saleabration last year as well, so I guess Stampin' Up! figured everyone had it already. LOL. BUT if you were one of the lucky ones who got this awesome stamp, here is a sweet idea for it ! Take a look !!

Is that adorable or what !?!? The DSP is the real kicker for me. This is the retired (from last years Holiday Mini) Spice Cake dsp. I love how this pattern is the Triple Treat Flower !! It gives me a thrill when things match THIS will. Hahaha. The color combo here was pulled straight from this dsp; Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard and Pool Party. The flower itself was stamped 3 times onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Once in Soft Suede, and then punched with the Fancy Flower Punch; once in Pear Pizzazz, and then I hand cut that shape because I don't own the (now retired) 5 Petal Flower Punch; and lastly in More Mustard and punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch. Then each layer got dimensionals and made this sweet multi color flower !! 

I then stamped the flower in Pear Pizzazz onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock for that top layer piece; then it was die cut with the Adorning Accents edgelit and embossed with the coordinating Adorning Accents folder. Isn't that a great look !! Then after wrapping around a piece of the delicious Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, it was attached to the DSP and then the Soft Suede card base. That sentiment is from the (also retired ... hahaha) Grateful Greetings stamp set, and then punched with my dynamic duo of the Large Oval Punch and Scalloped Oval Punch. Love it !!

I hope you like my card today !! If you don't have this Triple Treat Flower, you could duplicate this look with any flower really. Or even the new Quint-Essential Flower stamp ... it coordinates with FIVE different punches !! Cool or what !! Well, thanks a lot for dropping by today ... Have a good one and Happy Stamping !!

  1. Beautiful card! I love many of the single stamps SU! has come out with, but I guess there's a limit as to how many can be in the catalog at any one time. :-)

  2. Beautiful card! Love the DSP and color combos. Fall is my favorite season, and I love the way this card captures so many beautiful fall colors. TFS

  3. This is a beautiful card. Really great for fall.
