Stampin Up PPA 199

I'm still running behind for most everything.  Still having issues standing too long and doing too much, but it's getting better all the time. 

The featured stamp set on this is Backyard Basics.  I have to tell you, sometimes you just don't see the greatness in a stamp set. I avoided this set, just didn't seem to care for it much.  But, one day I needed a set that had all the flowers and stuff that had dies for the pieces and since this one was still on Bundle pricing, I got it.

Wow! I'm so happy I did. It has become a favorite.  This card could be used for so many sentiments. It would be perfect for Easter, and I'm doing this up for my girls for Easter, but Thank you, Birthday ect work great.

  I stamped the Hardwood using Smoky Slate, stamped off on paper then onto my CS so that it's a very light impression.

I simply stamped the single flower 3 times. I inked the flower head then the stem and stamped. It's pretty easy with the clear stamps to see where to lay it on the pad.
Then I used Morning Meadow hostess set for the green vines

I used one of the punches in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack for the So Saffron flowers.
And the Modern Label punch for the sentiment, punched it a second time out of So Saffron and cut in the middle, then glued it to each end.

I hope you enjoyed this one, thanks so much for stopping by.  If you are interested in checking out any of the stamps and punches used on the card, simply click on the photos below.
