My Tangerine Thank You

TGIF Peeps! Hope your day goes fast and your weekend is fun!

Today's card is another "flower Card". Do I make any other kind? I have to say I LOVE the Bella Blossom set from SU. It is on the dormant list but I just love it.

I really like the bright colors in this one, tangerine tango and kiwi kiss, don't they look nice?

I started by inking up my stamp with some tangerine ink, just the top, taking care to try and avoid getting ink on the stem and leaves. I then used the kiwi ink pad to ink up the bottom part. I then stamped it onto some PTI white card stock. I then stamped the bloom two more times on some scrap white, cut them out and layered it up onto the flower with dimensionals. I used my glue pen and some diamond dust to add some sparkle to the center of the bloom. I sit that aside and went onto the rest of the card.

I used tangerine for the base and followed that with some kiwi cardstock, followed by some "Haiku" DS paper, retired. I edge punched some white with the lace edge punch and added it, Barely noticeable behind the large flower.

I used some kiwi kiss satin ribbon, wrapped it around and used my 1/4" circle punch to bring it up through the flower panel and tied a bow. I then stamped the sentiment onto some more scrap with tangerine and punched it out with the word window punch. I then cut a piece of tangerine just slightly larger than the sentiment and used my corner rounder punch to make a mat for the sentiment. I added a kiwi button to the edge and mounted that onto the flower panel with more dimensionals.

Finally I added four white brads in the upper left corner and mounted it to the base card.

As a little thank you to my blog readers, I am going to give away this card, and a couple of other fun goodies, to one of you. Just leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a winner on Monday.

That's all I have for you today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
