It all started with this…


I saw this card on the demonstrator gallery, Stampin Connection, that Stampin Up has for us, and I just LOVED it.  It is Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Poppy Parade.  We made this at my Diva Downline Retreat, and I was thrilled with how it came out.  I used the Manhattan Flower, Vintage Wallpaper, Elegant Bouquet Embossing folders, The Lace Ribbon Border Punch (on the discontinued list…can you believe that?  good news though:  it is 40% off)  the jewelry tag punch, scallop circle punch.  I used some coral twine, and a neutral button.

That lead to these cards:

First I pulled out a 1/4" sheet of Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Poppy Parade and ran it through my Tasteful Trim die (A MUST HAVE)…

I started with a black card and white layer then went to town…


This card uses the Bouquet Punch, Boho Blossom punch and the Blossom Bouquet Triple layer punch (also being discontinued…What???  But you can get it for 40% off, too!)  Greeting is from Word Play in Black StazOn.


This one uses a greeting from the hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes, the Triple Blossom Boquet punch, and a neutral brad with some coral baker's twine.  The flowers are from the Fun Flowers Die.


This card uses more of the same…with the Friendly Phrases stamp set, and calypso coral ruffle ribbon.  Sorry it is on its side…


This card uses the greeting from Field Flowers (LOVE IT)

After all those…I was really on a roll…so I used all the left over flower rings from the Blossom Bouquet Triple layer punch:


These cards use the "Pressed Flowers" technique where you glue punches to a background and run them through the square lattice embossing folder…CUTE!!  I used the 3/4" circle punch and the boho flower punch.


Here is another…uses the punch pack, too!  LOVE 'em! 

SO after I made all these cards, my friend Deb was there and she made a bunch of her own cards using the tasteful trim die and the color combo:  Pool Party, Concord Crush and Island Indigo…it was way cool!!  Give it a try and let me know what you come up with!!  Need the die?  I know where you can get one!  Drop me a line if you need to order it!
