I made this flower back in May when these were the colors of the month. Tonight I was going through files and found this layout which I thought was perfect for this flower. So here it is. Thanks for looking!
I didn't actually do much to show the punch. It has another piece to it but you'll see... For this card, I punched the smaller pennant in solid colors and put the flower from the Blossom Party Die. I actually used the Newsprint DSP that will not be in the upcoming catalog. Hey, that's all I had and it worked.
Wait! Where's my mistake? Ha ha! Well it's under the Happy Birthday! I originally stamped it in Crumb Cake and it was crooked. I tried to darken it up by using the Stamp-a-ma-jig with Basic Grey over it but guess what? I goofed. That's okay right? It turned into this awesome card! I used the Pennant Punch to cut matching notches on the banner.
I thought I should share my inspiration. Her name is Tessa, she is an awesome stamper and this is the link to her card that is very similar. My point is that you can copy something and alter it according to what you have.
I'm just going to throw my oops right out there... did you notice? Probably not. I had last months and this months colors on the table still and picked up the Marina Mist. Who cares right? This card turned out fabulous! I CASE'd it from the March 2011 Stampin' Success. This is a publication exclusively for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. From the moment I saw the stacked stamps, I loved it! I made a few slight changes to make it my own but for the most part. it was copied. That's what we do.
I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure that I stamped it all right the first time. First the A to Z, then the damask in Marina Mist, then the bird in Staz On. I was nervous about the placement but I couldn't be any happier with the results! Do you see the pearls? I didn't want to over do it but thought it needed an embellishment. Don't they all?!
