Pretty Posies

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #saleabration   #ProtipTuesday   We made this ever so cute and ever so clever card at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends new catalog gathering last weekend. This is a card that features products from the Annual Catalog, the January-to-June Mini Catalog, and the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. It's sweet and pretty and it has a "hidden" PROTIP for you!
We started by embossing a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock panel with the Subtle Embossing Folder. We adhered that to a 4" by 5-1/4" Blushing Bride Card Stock mat and then onto a Thick Whisper White Card Stock base.

We punched a spray of leaves from Pear Pizzazz Card Stock using the Leaf Punch from the Annual Catalog. We punched three flowers from Blushing Bride Card Stock with the Small Bloom Punch that you can earn for FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. We stamped the sentiment from the "Sending You Thoughts" set--another SAB item, FREE with a $50 purchase--in Soft Suede Ink onto a strip of Whisper White Card Stock.

Here's where the PROTIP comes in! We punched a piece of Whisper White Card Stock with the larger balloon from the Balloon Bouquet Punch, embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder from the January-to-June Mini Catalog, and turned it upside-down to form a vase for the flowers. I know! Your PROTIP is that your punches can be used for more than you think! Who would have thought that a balloon could be a vase?

We adhered the leaves spray directly to the card and adhered everything else to the card with regular Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish the card, we added one Pearl Embellishment to the middle of each flower and then used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere a pretty bow made with So Saffron Metallic Baker's Twine from the Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo Pack that you can earn for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration! So cute and clever!
