Flower Fest Double Slider


We made these at my last workshop of the Stampin'Up! year. I can't believe this stamp set is retiring... I just started to play with it. Flower Fest was new last year right? It's a really nice two step stampin set. My other favorite that is going is Brighter Tomorrow. LOVE that set. It's great for more than just sympathy. I won't be letting these go..... at least not for awhile. I have a hard time letting the retired sets go. :)

There is a great tutorial on SCS by Beate for this cool card. Click here to see it. It's called the double slider, and it's FUN. My club girls had a lot of fun making it.

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Flower Fest, Brighter Tomorrow, Linen
Paper: Whisper White, Always Apricot, Palette O' Prints, Night of Navy
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Night of Navy, Certainly Celery
Other: Round Tab Punch, 3/4 Circle punch, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals, DD Glitter, Two-way Glue Pen, Grosgrain Ribbon, Janome Sew Mini Sewing Machine.

If you put the card stock this far into the punch and punch, it will make a nice little notch in the top so that you have room to grab the little tab.

Hope you all had a great weekend. This Saturday is my Grandma's 87th birthday. We are having a HUGE birthday for her at the lake with tons of family and friends. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of cousins. Last week, my grandma got the green light to drive again since her surgery. She was So happy. She was off playing cribbage with her friends and driving herself to therapy. I'm so lucky to have her in my life. Thanks again to everyone who sent her cards during her recovery. You guys are THE best!

I'll try and stamp a bit this week, but I have a lot of shopping, and cooking and getting ready for the big event. My back is much better, but I still can't sit for long. Thanks again for all the well wishes.

glad your grandma is vital and active, and that you're doing better, too. Oh, and that's a great tip on using the round tab punch to create the notch. What a good idea!

Flower Fest was on my very first order last year when the catty came out and is one of my favorites. I even had a card on Stampers Showcase using this set. I can't believe all the sets SU is retiring after just one year. You can bet this set isn't leaving my house either!

Gorgeous card! I have to try the double slider card soon. In the meantime, I'm still playing with the square steps corner punch (I'm as obsessed with that punch as some people are with their sewing machines *grin and wink* -- check out my blog :-).

Love the glitter and the navy. I swear I used to reach for the night of navy for almost every card. Now, I can't remember the last time I used it.
