Flowers of Friendship & The NEW In Colors #2

Hi Stamping Friends!
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and to all those who have mothered! I miss My Mommy on days like today so much, but I'm so very blessed to have a step-mom, mom-in-law, aunts and many other "surrogate moms" in my life who continue to mother me! I truly love and appreciate you all!

Flowers & Leaves Punch Creates Colorful Blooms!

Pale papaya 1

Flowers of Friendship With 4-Petal Flowers
This is my featured card for the Pale Papaya month for my In Color Club participants. I love that it uses most of the new In Colors…you can see how beautifully they go together! And the Flowers & Leaves Punch makes it so easy to create a whole bouquet of flowers!
Background Basics—I started with a Pale Papaya card base and I stamped the Flowers of Friendship tiny flower border repeatedly along the left side of the card front with coordinating Pale Papaya ink. Doesn't it make such a sweet background pattern? I added a Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon tied around the card front into a double-knot.

Masked & Punched Blooms—I used the large Flowers of Friendship floral image for the stem and leaves, but I wanted to add 4-petal flowers instead of the blooms that were on the image. I used some small sticky notes to cover up the flowers on the rubber stamp, then inked just the stem and leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I removed the masks, then stamped the remaining image onto a 2-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic White cardstock. It's layered onto a 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Polished Pink, then mounted onto the card front. 
Next, I punched the two smaller Flowers of Friendship blooms in Memento Black onto Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia cardstock and punched them out. The larger flower was stamped in Memento Black onto Pale Papaya and punched out. And finally, I stamped the small and large leaves in Memento Black onto Soft Succulent cardstock and punched those out as well. They were all added to the flower stem with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals. This is a simple Paper Piecing technique and I love how it adds quick color to the card!  
I finished with some Rhinestone Jewels in the center of each flower.

Sweet Sentiment
I stamped the Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Memento Black onto a 2-3/4" x 7/8" piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock, then popped it up with Dimensionals. So sweet!
Evening evergreen 1
Flowers of Friendship With Full Flowers
For my Evening Evergreen card, I tried a fun fold card with full flowers, again punched with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. It makes a fantastic thank you card!
Background Basics—I started with a quarter-sheet of Evening Evergreen, measuring 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". I decorated the base with a 2" x 4" piece of Evening Evergreen In Color DSP, then added a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut as a pretty foundation for the card. The open part of the card is made with a 5-3/4" x 4-1/8" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock, scored at the 2-7/8" mark. It's adhered onto the scallop rectangle with SEAL or SEAL+.
I wrapped some Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon around the small card front, attaching the ends to the card front with SEAL.

Full Flowers—The flowers punched from the Flowers & Leaves Punch can be layered to create fuller blooms. I started by stamping a Flowers of Friendship greeting in Memento Black onto a Basic White Tasteful Labels die-cut. Then, I stamped and punched two Pale Papaya large flowers and two Polished Pink small flowers, both in Memento Black ink. I layered and attached them with Glue Dots. I stamped the leaves in Evening Evergreen ink onto Evening Evergreen cardstock, punched them out and tucked them under the blooms with Glue Dots.
The label is mounted onto the card front with Dimensionals. I finished with Rhinestone Jewels for each bloom.

Inside The Card—Don't forget to decorate the inside of the card. I stamped the two flowers and leaves in Memento Black onto the 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Basic White. They are colored with Stampin' Blends Markers in Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent colors.
