Got Flowers?!

Hello!  I'm playing Vicki's Flashback Friday Challenge again this week and this time her theme is flowers.  Every week Vicki from 'Stamp Smiles' challenges us to use our old, neglected, retired supplies in a trendy new way.  I told Vicki all I have is old stamps, so that's never a problem for me!

Well you all know I love flowers, so this week's challenge was a treat for me.  To make my card I pulled out the retired Stampin Up! set "Delight in Life".  

My pretty paper is from DCWV 'Lemon Flower'.   It has a lot of texture and sheen in real life.
To make the card,  I stamped the flowers from the set on separate card stock and cut them out.  The sentiment was stamped directly on a banner cut with an MFT die.  I colored the little yellow flower in the sentiment with my copics.  Little yellow adhesive crystals were added to the center of each flower for embellishment.
It was a fun and easy card to make, and I really loved using my old SU! set again.  If you'd like to play along with us this week, just click the link at the top of this post.

Have a great day!  Amy


  1. These cards turned out so pretty! You have a great talent for making these. Do you have an etsy shop? If not - you should!

  2. This card is so beautiful! Love the color combo! That is one of my favorite old SU sets because I love "sketchier" art,if you know what I mean. I don't use it (much) anymore, but that small flower usually finds its way on the back of my cards above my "handmade for you" stamp :)

  3. Oh my word Amy! This is absolutely breath-taking!! I remember this set and it had been one of my faves! :) Do I still have it? Nope!! LOL! I do love that ribbon treatment!! Brilliant make!! Thanks so much for sharing your creation at my Flashback Friday Challenge! I hope you will join every Friday with me! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*
