Stampin' Up! Triple Treat Flower
& Baroque Motifs
It's May 10th. That means exactly 3 weeks left until all the retiring products go away. This is the first in a series of cards created from retiring products. This will be your last chance to get these stamp sets and punches. Take advantage of them while you can still get them!
On June 1st, my next newsletter will go out with the DSP and Simply Scrappin' chart listing the colors that are used in each. To get yours be sure you have signed up for my newsletter!
Many of you may remember my friend Jill's 4th grade class. Last year I taught them how to make Mother's and Father's Day cards. This year is no exception. And in fact as you are reading this, I am at the school teaching them how to do it. This is the card we'll make for Mother's Day. I hate it when I make a card - or in this case, cards - that I absolutely LOVE with products that will be retiring soon! Triple Treat Flower has so many options, but I never thought to counter place them for twice as much bang for your stamp. Then I took the scraps (you know, the punched out pieces that I didn't think I was going to use?) and made an even cooler creation. I hope you agree!

Putting It Together Tips:
- Oh my gosh! Where do I begin? First I used a 3“ x 3” piece of Whisper White card stock to imprint each of the flower images. Position the image in the lower right corner. That gives you something to hold on to when punching. There is also space to imprint the sentiment.
- Also punch out the 5-Petal Punch first. Then if you want to punch out the Fancy Flower punch like I did for the portrait card on the right, you still have something to hold onto.
- The circle punch does not quite reach the center of the 5-Petal punch out, but close enough. If you're a perfectionist, you might want to stamp a partial image just for the center like I did with the Lucky Limeade center. The Calypso Coral center is actually a hole showing the Calypso Coral 5-Petal Flower from below.
- Teeny Tiny Wishes is my fave sentiment stamp set. Any of the sentiments can be used in the Word Window, so this card - with a swap of colors - could work for just about any holiday or celebration.
