Another Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter stamp set gets it's first chance to play on Stampin' Pretty today . . . Wow Flowers (available Aug. 11). For $12.95, this little set packs a stamp happy punch for birthdays and thank yous. However, punches are the key to making this card quick and fun!
The Happy Birthday circle was stamped (in Blue Bayou) on Whisper White card stock. Things get pretty "punchy" from there. I zapped the sentiment out with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch, followed by a Wild Wasabi 1 3/8" Circle and a Scallop Circle Punch of Soft Sky. Dead center is a Pumpkin Pie Boho Blossom with a 1/4" Circle for it's belly (in Blue Bayou card stock).
The horizontal banner consists of more Boho flower punches in Wild Wasabi with Blue Bayou centers . . .all layered along with the main image on a strip of Pumpkin Pie Textured card stock. Spring Break Designer Paper provides the polka dot and stripe background. Oh, how I'm going to miss that gorgeous polka dot when this paper retires Aug. 10–sooner if supplies run out. For a current list of what's still available or now sold out from Stampin' Up!'s retiring supplies, please click Updated Retiring Accessories. These select accessories are on sale for 25% off. Note all Hodgepodge Hardware kits (all three finishes) have sold out.
The Spring Break paper is layered over Whisper White card stock. A beautiful piece of Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon ties things up. The 4.25 x 5.5 card base is created with Wild Wasabi Textured card stock.
