Fabulous Florets (p. 107) is one of those sets in my collection that has been a little bit neglected, but with springtime here it was time to pull it out! It coordinates with the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper #122342, which you can see I used as a strip near the bottom of my card. I imagine most of the designer paper will be retired soon so I wanted to use some of this before it is gone. The colors and designs of flowers are so bright and cheerful!
I stamped the flower stem on my Whisper White card stock and a flower or two, but then I also stamped three flowers on scrap paper and cut them out. Then I adhered to my stamped stems, popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 (who could live without Stampin' Dimensionals??!). The center flower used one of the new Summer Smooches Fabric Brads #125589. They add so much…..but be careful, they are only available during April and will NOT be in the next new catalog in June.
And here are photos of some real flowers from the Houston Azalea Trail in March that I don't think I posted yet. After touring this garden along the bayou, the rains came and we got soaked! Glad we went to this garden first!
Have a great weekend! Don't forget to check out the retiring stamp set list!
