Sweets for the Sweet Flowers

Put on your shades cause these flowers are bright!  I got the idea to use this stamp from the  Sweets for the Sweet stamp set to make a flower from the display boards on the SU! Alaska cruise.   I thought it was a fun and clever way to use the stamp.  This card definitely looks like summer!

Sweets for the Sweet flowers

Usually I tell people to stamp first and then punch but in this situation it is much easier to punch the Fancy Flower punch first and then stamp. 

Supplies
Stamps: Sweets for the Sweet, Build a Blossom, Happy Greetings
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Punches: Fancy Flower, 1 " circle, Blossom Petals Builder
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dot TIEF
Extras:  Wire for the flower stems, Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon (retired-sorry), Crystal Effects
(Bold and Italicized 2011-2012 SU Catalog, Bold in the Summer Mini Catalog)

I used wire for the stems of the flowers so they would move, just like real flowers.  Thought it would be a fun touch.  I put Crystal Effects on the Daffodil Delight flower centers and it unfortunately masked some of the details of the stamp  (spiral) I used that is also from the Sweets for the Sweet set.

The Sweets for the Sweet stamp set is a fun new set and I hope you enjoyed another look at how versatile it is.  Check out this post for more ways to use this  stamp set!
