Stamping 411 #141 and CC261 Flower


I'm savoring some "me time" today and playing in my basement studio. I made this card for the Stamping 411 sketch #141 here and for the Splitcoast Color Combo #261 here. The colors are Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Melon Mambo.
I started with stamping the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp in Melon Mambo ink on Melon Mambo card stock. Then I punched that out with the XL Fancy Flower punch. I stamped the Happy Birthday flower stamp from Wow Flowers in Bashful Blue and punched that out with the 1 inch circle punch. I layered a piece of Bashful Blue punched with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and added a Celery brad. The stem was made from scraps of Certainly Celery and the flowers were punched and then cut with the 5-petal flower punch. A flower from the Trio flower punch was popped up with Stampin dimensionals and a piece of the 1 inch double-stitched Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon finishes it off!
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Dot, Dot, Dot, Happy Moments, Wow Flowers
Papers: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Welcome Neighbor SAB DSP
Inks: Bashful Blue and Melon Mambo
Accessories: XL Fancy Flower punch, Trio flower punch, 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch circle punches, 5-petal flower punch, Certainly celery brad, 1 inch Bashful blue double stitched grosgrain, Stampin dimensionals
