Hi Stampin' Friends!

The  inspiration for this card came for Vickie Burke, a fantastic, very talented demonstrator.  I love her watercoloring!

I used the image of the hydrangea flower from Best of Birthdays Clear Mount Stamp Set.  

Best of flowersWith spring comes green grass, blue skies, and of course flowers! Then what could be better for our March “Best Of” set than a collection of the best flower stamps from the past quarter-century? This set also includes a never-before-seen flower image that coordinates perfectly with our 1-1/4" Scallop Circle punch.


As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, SU is including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

FlowerThe image was stamped twice with Brown Stazon (retired) on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  I then colored in one of the images with a blender pen and More Mustard for center of flowers, Night of Navy for the flowers.  The flower part of the image was then cut out and set aside.

Only the leaves and the stem were colored in Lucky Limeade in the second image.  I then punched it out using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  It was then layered onto Night of Navy Card Stock which was die cut using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Die.

The background paper (embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder) is from the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper and the base card is Night of Navy Card Stock.  

The last thing I did was to lightly spritzed the card using the Color Spritzer Tool and the Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker.
