Scallop Flower Fest

Today I’m sharing a card using the soon-be-retired Flower Fest stamp set. I was disappointed to find out that this set was going to be retired, as I love it’s open and whimsy art. It’s the perfect set for watercoloring …and many of the stamp images fit a bunch of my punches (2-3/8” Scallop circle, 5-Petal Flower, 1-3/8” circle, Fancy Flower, Butterfly).
One of my classes last year was the Scrapbook in a Box class which used the Paisley Petals DSP to decorate the scrapbook. I only used half of the DSP designs for the scrapbook, so I had the other half leftover and decided to challenge myself to use it and the Flower Fest stamp set to design April’s card class. This fun Scallop card was one of my ideas. I loved it, but since I could only pick three cards for the class, this card ended up not making the cut. But good news, here’s a few card details to share with you: I stamped So Saffron CS with Black Stazon and watercolored the stamped rose images with Calypso Coral ink. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the stamp set Bring on the Cake. I made the banner flag ends using the square punch.

Thanks for visiting…have a wonderful day!!
