Do you have a Stampin' Up! wish list? Are many of the items on the 2012 retiring list? Well now is the time to treat yourself! That's right...the day after Mothers Day gift to yourself. I love to treat myself to what I really wanted the day after a holiday. Now remember...keep that to yourself. I don't think my boys ever visit my blog. :)
Today's card is my version of several cards I have seen on the web recently. They all have used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder which I really liked and kept. I made my changes with the flowers using some of my favorite punches. Some of which I am sad to say are retiring.
The center of the middle flower uses the retiring 5-Petal Punch. This one is going to be sadly missed by everyone. Besides being used for flowers it is a "go to" punch for many of the punch art projects. If you don't have it order by May 31.
The two end flowers were made using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch which is also retiring. This is a fun punch that punches five different shapes plus what I like to call watermelon seeds. I use it often when I make different types of flowers. It's listed at a 40% discount...Wow!
I'm happy to say that the colors used for the flowers are the In Colors that will be with us for another year. They are Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Lucky Limeade.
