A Bag Inspired Flower Card for the PPA!

Inspirations is everywhere - clothing, fabric, advertisements, home decor and so much more! My sweet friend Katrina sewed this bag that I fell in love with and she ended up giving it to me as a suprise gift one day! I use it as my purse and just love the two different fabrics and floral pattern! I've been waiting to make a card with these colors and when the Pals Paper Arts posted a Flower themed challenge I knew I needed to get my supplies out, match card stock, and stamp away! I interpreted these colors as Cameo Coral (Retiring), Mellow Moss (Retiring), Bermuda Bay (Retiring), Basic Black and Whisper White! Here's what I came up with! :)
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • With the Bermuda Bay DSP, I was able to get the Monochromatic Polka Dot look from the top of my bag! I cut a piece to 4" x 5-1/2" and rounded one corner in the top right with the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch!
  • The Awash with Flowers Two-Step Stampin' set was perfect for getting a black outline for the flowers, then stamping the coordinating flower colors inside the images!
  • With Mother's Day a few weeks away - I thought I better have a few cards on hand to give to my mom and friends! The 'happy mother's day' sentiment comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set! There is definitely a stamp for every occasion in that set of 24 stamps! They fit perfectly with the Word Window Punch and the Modern Label Punch!
  • I used two Pretty in Pink Soft Subtles brads to anchor my sentiment - the brads surprisingly matched the Cameo Coral card stock really well! Just a shade lighter but the same hue! I great SU find!
