Helpful Hints:

  • The Sahara Sand card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The white panel is 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. I trimmed two pieces each of Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum to 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and used Snail to attach them to the Whisper White focal panel.

  • I stamped the branch, the bird and all the flowers on one sheet of Thick Whisper White card stock. The coordinating dies together with the Magnetic Platform make die cutting all the shapes SO easy!!
  • Stampin’ Up!’s 3/8″ Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon is just the most darling ribbon ever!!

  • See the little stem with the flower and the bud on the far right of the branch? Stampin’ Up! designed this stamp in such a way that it is quick and easy to ink up and stamp just the stem in one ink color, and then ink up and stamp just the flowers in another ink color. Just ink up using the corner of your ink pad and get perfect results! I love the planning that goes in to Stampin’ Up! products!
  • Perhaps I got carried away with the sweet little flowers, but they are so cute I just couldn’t resist!

  • Pearls Basic Jewels add a touch of sweetness to the flowers! And of course, would a flower be complete without Wink of Stella??

    Love what you did with this color combo. The bird and flowers are lovely. No, I don’t think you got carried away with the flowers. They are so pretty and add a very feminine touch.
