Flower Shop and Pansy Punch

One of my favorite new Stampin Up items are the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy punch.  And you can get them in a bundle and save!   I have been playing with them both the last couple evenings.  Just what I needed after some stressful days at work!

All of these cards were inspired by cards I have seen from other demonstrators.  Thankful for them posting on the demonstrator website.

 I used the new Designer Series Paper - Gingham Garden for this one.  The Flower Shop images are stamped in Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse.  The sentiment is from one of the new hostess sets - Banner Greetings. 

 This one is Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky and Crisp Cantaloupe.   I used 3 different images from the Flower Shop set and a leaf die cut.  I used the oval framelits to cut the Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay.  The Bermuda Bay is layered behind the Soft Sky.  I ran the piece of Soft Sky through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The sentiment from Trust God was stamped on the white card base and the ovals layered on top.   I arranged the flowers and a couple die cut leaves, then added a pearl.

The same colors and dies.  This time I layerd the Bermuda Bay on top of an oval of Soft Sky.  The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla and punched using the extra large oval.   Same colors as above.

Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight.  The gingham washi tape was perfect for this one.  I pierced around the edges of some Whisper White, then wrap the washi tape around it.  Layered that on Smoky Slate and added a Smoky Slate color dot to the upper right corner.  Love these!  Add a dot of color like a brad but no bulk since it is just a little round dot that adhere directly to the paper.  I am going to love those!    The flower center is from Daffodil Delight with a small rhinestone in the center.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

And another one using the Gingham Garden paper.  The sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set.  This one uses the candy dot but it is place on the coordinating brads - so you can have a brad or not - however you like it.   The brads are silver and have a ridge around the flat top so you just add the candy dot.   I used the Herringbone embossing folder for the background.

Love this stamp set and the punch makes it so easy to use.  A hint for using the punch.  Look for the flower with the little dip in one half of the petal.  All the others are rounded but this one show here has a little indentation.

Line that indentation up with the same petal on the punch.  The top petal in the photo below.  Once you have those petals matched it is easy to line up the others.
