Bouquet of Flowers - Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers - Fab Friday 190

  Happy Friday everyone!  Yes, it's Friday; I checked the calendar to be sure lol!  And I also know it's Friday because we've got a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  I hope those of you working have a day or 2 off to do some full on relaxing including stamping!

  We are doing colors this time!  A lot of colors!  This was a tough one for me since there. is. so. much. pink!  But it's not called a challenge for nothing.  I think I did pretty well!

  The only idea I could think of when I saw these colors was flowers so that's what I went with.  It was also a good reason to ink up my brand new preorder set Jar of Flowers.  While I didn't use the jar on this card I think the flowers easily stand on their own!

  The card base is Blushing Bride and then I embossed a piece of vellum with one of the new Greenery embossing folders.  It's a two pack of embossing folders that are narrower than the traditional folders and are great patterns.

  For the flowers and stems I stamped the images on Whisper White with Memento black then colored them in with Stampin' Blends.  We don't have markers for every single color so sometimes you have to find one that's "close enough" so I used Lovely Lipstick as my close enough for Melon Mambo.  No Blushing Bride marker either but I didn't miss it with the other nice bright colors.  After coloring both pieces are fussy cut. I stamped the yellow flowers a second time and colored and cut them out to pop up with mini dimensionals.

  I wrapped a piece of narrow Whisper White ribbon around the stems and "tied" it with a Melon Mambo candy dot.

  The 'hello' from Well Said is stamped in Melon Mambo and cut out with the flag die from the new Tasteful Labels die set.

  I can't wait to see all the creativity with this set of colors!  Head over to the Fab Friday challenge site and see the rest of the Design Team inspiration and then play along with us!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Very pretty! It's nice to see those embossing folders at work, and you're right...the flowers do well on their own! Love the little embellishments you added!
