Fun Flower Shop !

Hey Stampers,

Happy Friday to ya ! It is still rainy and cold here today, but its supposed to be nice and warm the weekend so YAY ! I am working this weekend, but I still like when the weather is nice ! And of course, this weekend is a long weekend - so I still get 2 days off in a row ! Monday is Canada Day, but even more important that that, it's my wedding anniversary ! I cant believe we have been married 7 years ! Makes me feel old. LOL So I need to try and make an anniversary card or my sweet hubby this weekend at some point. Maybe I should make one for myself while I'm at it ! Hahaha 

Even though it is grey and dreary here, I can still brighten up your day with a fun and summery card !! My VERY FAVOURITE set in the new catalogue is the Flower Shop set. And, it has a matching punch so it can't get much better than that for me ! And if you buy them together as a bundle - you save 15% ! I love all of those bundles, and the new catty has a bunch of them !! I paired the lovely Flower Shop with the Really Good Greetings set (one of my new favourite sentiment sets) and some framelits. Love how fun it turned out !! Take a look for yourself !! 

Isn't that cute !?! it makes me think of a beach vacation. The colors of Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight just scream summer to me. I used the fun "alphabet" flower her, love that fun design ! I stamped it in Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral onto Whisper White and punched it out with my Pansy Punch. I used the little scallop from the Itty bitty Punch Pack for my flower centres, and added a Rhinestone. I curled up the petals with my Bone Folder and these cute blossoms were ready to go ! I then used my markers to color in my sentiment, stamped it onto some more Whisper White and die cut it out using one of the new Chalk Talk framelits. LOVE the fun shapes in that collection !! My last bit of stamping was for my Daffodil Delight layer. I stamped it all over with the sketch style flower, also from the Flower Shop set. Love that fun image !

I wanted to add some fun banners behind my sentiment piece, so I looked through my DSP for some fun ones in my color combo. My Daffodil Delight banner is cut from the Polka Dot Parade DSP - this fun paper pack is SO great ! Love all the classic polka dots ! It is a carryover from last years catalogue, I wish I hadn't waited so long to get it !! The Coastal Cabana pattern is from the new In Color DSP Paper Stack. These new patterns this year are SO fun ! The tiny banner of Calypso Coral is from the Epic Day DSP, one of my new favs ! I added them to the back of my sentiment piece using some Dimensionals. The background for my banner is a Whisper White die cut from the Labels Collection framelits. I embossed it with the Chevron embossing folder, and added my banners and flower onto it. This was added to my Daffodil Delight banner with some MORE Dimensionals, and all of this was put on a Coastal Cabana card base. Lots of fun dimension on this card ! 

Thanks a lot for coming by today !! And remember, there is still a week to sign up for the Inky Fingers Club !! it starts on July 7th and you DON'T want to miss it !! Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping !!
