For You, Flowers - Workshop May 20, 2017

The two Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets I used on this quick and easy card are both ones I have used on many card projects.   Why?   Because they are versatile and everyone loves flowers.   I like adding the little ladybug here and there.   So grab some shades of ink and make a bunch of these to share for all kinds of occasions.   

For You, Flowers


  • Stamp Sets - Penned & Painted (141938) and Blooms & Wishes (141784)
  • Card Stock - Whisper White 8 1/2"x5 1/2", score & fold 4 1/4" and 5"x3 3/4".    Basic Black 5 1/4"x4".
  • Inks - Basic Black, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose, Delightful Dijon
  • Directions   - On the Whisper White 5"x3 3/4" card stock, stamp the For You message.   Then stamp the flowers around the message; add ink colors.   Tape the pieces together and you're done!
