Stop by my Flower Shop

Finally made a card I can show you!  I have been a swap-maniac getting ready for convention and those cards are under wraps for now, but after punching out 60+ pansies I wanted to punch out a few to play with!

Maui Stamper Flower Shop in Mambo and Black

  • Flower Shop and Label Love stamp sets
  • Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Modern Medley DSP (buy 3, get one free!)
  • Versamark Ink pad
  • Basic Black and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write markers
  • Black Embossing powder
  • Embossing buddy
  • Heat Tool (this baby is HOT!!)
  • Artisan and Pansy punches
  • Melon Mambo 1/8″ taffeta ribbon
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Rhinestone jewels

You NEED to get your hands on that Modern Medley DSP, especially since you can buy 3 packages and get one free this month!  I’m seriously considering buying 3 Modern Medleys!!  Every single design is a 110% winner (can ya tell I like it??)

Stampin' Up! Maui Stamper Flower Shop in Mambo and BlackLove these Punch/Stamp set bundles too…great images, great punches, great savings.  The Label Love bundle is on page 32 in the Annual catalog – clear is $28.75 for punch and stamps (#132722).  The Flower Shop bundle is on page 95 (same price, #132726).  I’m trying to be disciplined and just get one bundle each order but I may or may not be sticking with that plan.  (Tell me what YOU think!)

One thing I discovered about the Pansy punch…it is NOT symmetrical.  I had issues with that punch for a while, but I’ve come up with a solution.  I had to…I punched out 60 pansies for one of my swaps!

    1. Oh, my goodness, you picked a real blast from the past!

      I can only take a wild guess at the measurements on this card, as it is LONG GONE. The card base is a standard 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folded in half to present a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card front. The black panel running top to bottom is 5 1/2″ tall by (total guess here) 1 3/4″ wide. The white on black polka dot panel, the one positioned landscape, is probably 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and the pink mat behind it would be 1/4″ larger, so 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. The black dots on white (portrait orientation panel) might be 1 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ with another 1/4″ mat ( 1 3/4″ x 4 3/4″).

      These are truly guesses based on the proportions I see on that image! Your best bet is to find some scrap paper and cut out some pieces and see how they fit together. I wouldn’t cut both the mat and the decorative panel, just cut your scrap paper to the size that the matted piece would be so you can see how much space it takes up. Good luck! Let me know how you do.
