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.
