Beautiful Bunch of Cards

I have batch of cards today which all feature the Beautiful Bunch stamp set (p.158) and the coordinating Fun Flower Punch (p.219). It is a great set that not only coordinates with the Fun Flower Punch, but also the Petite Petals, 7/8″ Scallop Circle, and 1/2″ Circle Punch (p.219-221).

Beaut. Bunch3This card has a Night of Navy card base and DSP from the Flower Pot Designer Series paper (p.186). I added a piece of Night of Navy Seam Binding Ribbon (p.207), some Crushed Curry Candy Dots (p.208), and rhinestones (p.209) as embellishments. I stamped the flower images in Night of Navy ink on Crushed Curry and Whisper White cardstock. I punched out the 2 large flowers and cut out the centers with my paper snips. I used stampin’ dimensionals between the layers to pop the flower off the card. Finally, I added a banner with the sentiment from the And Many More stamp set (p.20).

Beaut. Bunch2This card uses the solid flower image on it and the flower center image. I stamped the image 3 times with Calypso Coral ink, and just stamped off to get lighter shades for each. I punched them out and layered them with stampin’ dimensionals, so there is a lot of dimension (even though it is hard to see that on this image). The top flower has some shading around the edges of the petals with a sponge and Calypso Coral ink and the flower center is stamped in the same color. I layered the flower onto a white 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle (p.220) and a Calypso Coral 2-1/2″ Circle (p.221). I also added more circles in Whisper White, Calypso Coral, and Silver Glimmer paper in various circle punch sizes. I embossed 2 of the circles with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (p.226). I used a Whisper White card base and a layer of Park Lane DSP (p. 187), and used some pearls (p.209) as the final embellishment on the center of the flower.

Beaut. Bunch1This last card was CASED from Connie Babbert. I really did not change much from her card…it was just so perfect as it was, but I did use alter a few small details. I used the new Mossy Meadow for the card base and layered on a piece of Park Lane DSP (p.187). I used my corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board (p.194) to round the corners of the DSP. I added a banner in Gold Glimmer paper (p.193) and a piece of Mossy Meadow with the sentiment embossed with White embossing powder from the Forever Florals stamp set (p.171). I stamped the flower image in Mossy Meadow ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and punched out 2 of the flowers. Then I stamped the flower center with Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch it out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (p.220). I used stampin’ dimensionals between the flower layers again to pop them off the card.

This is another great flower set to use with that Fun Flower Punch. It also coordinates really well with the Bloom for You stamp (p.139) that I shared recently too. I do love it when I can mix and match stamp sets and punches to get a little more mileage from them. It’s nice to be able to expand on the versalitily of a stamp set by being able to interchange it with another. Hope you get to do some stamping today. Thanks for looking and Happy Stampin’!
