DOstamperSTARS Thursday Color Challenge #130: Mixed Bunch

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Sketch Pad challenge.

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #130 #dostamping #stampinup
Well it became quite obvious with today's sketch that I should make a floral card.  So that's what I went with.  I chose my favorite stamp set and punch combo; Mixed Bunch and matching Blossom Punch - both retiring.

In addition, I chose bold colors; black & red, with touches of green & yellow.  The banner measures 1-3/4" x 4-1/2" and is from the retiring Back To Black Designer Series Paper.  The greeting is from the retiring Regarding Dahlias stamp set.  See below for tips to make the flower...

Mixed Bunch Flower:

  • Stamp Mixed Bunch Flower with Real Red (on Whisper White) and punch with Blossom Punch
  • Punch Old Olive with Blossom Punch - cut apart 2 "leaves" and attach with glue dots
  • Punch Basic Black with 1" Circle Punch
  • Stamp center image with Stazon Jet Black and punch with 3/4" Circle punch
  • Attach punch circles together and adhere to center of flower
  • Attach black Candy Dot (from neutrals) to flower center
  • Adhere flower to card with Stampin' Dimensionals

Mixed Bunch is definitely one my favorites that I will miss.  Be sure to get yours and the matching Blossom Punch before it's gone for good!

Enjoy~Dawn O
