I recently had the opportunity to go to my friend Katie’s house to share a card and the new Stampin’ Up! products with her friends. It was a fun evening and it gave me some motivation to pull out my new Quint-Essential Flower stamp set and play with some different color combinations.
So, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I LOVE punches and was hooked on the Triple Treat Flower from last catalog. So, when I saw the Quint-Essential flower and the fact that it is less than $10 for the stamp, I knew I had to have it.
The cool thing is that with this stamp, you can use 5 different punches with this stamp for some fun layers. So, far I’ve only done 3 layers, but I’m going to go wild and do all 5 soon.
I CASE’d this card from a similar design from my friend Annie Lee but switched up the stamps, colors, and ribbon. Isn’t it fun how you can get inspired by a card and end up with something similar and yet completely different. I put together the color combination – Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Gumball Green (quickly becoming my my new favorite green!), and Summer Starfruit. Turns out to be a nice springy combination I think!
The ladies enjoyed the stamping, punching, and Big Shot-ing … I can make up that word, right? So, try it out yourself and let me know what you think too!
