So, this week for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #48 I pulled out one of my newest stamp sets called Flower Shop.  One of the awesome features of this stamp set is that you can also purchase it as a bundle paired with the matching Pansy Punch.  I can say that this will quickly become a favorite stamp set!  So, I hope you enjoy this weeks card creation for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #48…


Flower Shop Handmade Card


Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #48 with the Flower Shop Bundle


Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card Sketch 48 entry by Pam StaplesI have to say that I just love how this card turned out and I'm definitely going to be mailing it out but I just don't know yet who will receive this card.  This is a fun, bright and very quickly assembled card.

The base is Whisper White with the second layer of Strawberry Slush cardstock layered with Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper featuring the Strawberry Slush In Color.  The third layer consists of Whisper White cut to the dimensions of 2" x 4 1/4" layered with more Designer Series Paper from the Quatrefancy Specialty.  I also attached the Strawberry Slush Stretch Ruffle Trim to the underside of the Quatrefancy Specialty to create a border layer.  On the Whisper White in the upper right hand corner, I stamped the "amazing you" from the Express Yourself Hostess Stamp Set.  Then I used the Daffodil Delight Candy Dots from the Candy Dot Brights collection for added texture and balance in the upper left hand corner.  The final steps included attaching the 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Whisper White and tied a bow followed by the placement of the two flowers which were stamped from the Flower Shop stamp set and punched out with matching bundled Pansy punch.

One of my favorite features of the new 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog is the Bundled Products!  This is such a great way to purchase a Stamp Set with the matching framelits or punches at a discount.  There are plenty of bundled products and I look forward to sharing them with you over the next year.
