Stampin' Up! Birthday Bouquet: Color Challenge

Good morning stampers!

This week's a Color Combo Challenge! Use any layout, any stamps...but use this Color Combo to spark your creativity!

Today, I'm featuring the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!  

I'm also featuring the Florals Framelits Collection and the Flowering Flourishes stamp set.


When making this card

It's a bunch of layers but you can make this card in 10 minutes or less!
  • Card base is Soft Suede.
  • Then a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White.
  • Stamp Flowering Flourishes stamp in Soft Suede (used a Marker so that's why it appears to be different shades).
  • Same with the greeting (from the You've Got This stamp set), I used a Stampin' Write marker as I couldn't find my stamp pad! lol.
  • Adhered to card base with SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Cut a piece from the Birthday Bouquet (2 x 4) and mat it to Soft Suede.  
  • Wrap Pool Party Glitter Ribbon around it. Then adhered to front panel with SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Use the inner 3 framelits in the Florals Framelits Collection.  Adhere the bottom one with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere the Soft Suede flower with SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Adhere the inner most flower with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Add the bling (the Rhinestone Jewels) and you're done!
