My Family Stamp Set–Field Flowers CS48T

Tuesday, I shared with you that Stampin’ Up! had named a stamp set for my family… how cool was that?  LOL, just kidding… the stamp set is called “Field Flowers”, and of course my sur name is Field… works for me!

Today’s Creative Sketches Challenge features a sketch and a technique.  The technique was to use ribbon and lace in your card, scrapbook page, or project.  Here’s my card:Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackField Flowers is a two-step stamping set, and a new product from the 2011-12 Idea Book and Catalog.  My card also features new 2011-13 In Colors:  Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade… aren’t they fun?Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_Pack

Isn’t this flower gorgeous??  It was stamped twice… the first time with the fuller blossom image from Field Flowers using Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink.  The second layer of color was added using the outline image of the same bloom, and Concord Crush Classic Ink, both onto Whisper White card stock.

LOL, I’m neither obsessive-compulsive or a control freak… and love to share my perfect stamp art as well as that which is not exactly perfect. There’s a boo-boo in the photo above… can you see it?Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackHere’s a big hint:  The image on the right is correctly stamped with Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush classic inks.  The one on the left was stamped incorrectly.  Not too much difference in the two, is there? 

But, if you look closely, you will see whisper white card stock peeking through on the left side of the left bloom.  The first step stamping in Wisteria Wonder was done with the image totally upside down!  Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackLOL… I could have easily ‘fixed’ it by either tossing my first attempt and whisper white layer, OR by filling in the white space using my color coordinating Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write Marker, and you’d never have known! Of course, then I couldn’t share what to do when that sort of thing occurs!Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_Pack“Birthday Wishes” is from the “Bring On the Cake” Stamp set.  There are so many choices in this stamp set that the clear mount set comes packed in TWO DVD cases!Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackAn In-color printed brad adorns a lovely wisteria wonder ruffled ribbon bow… which was attached with three mini glue dots.Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackThe Lace Ribbon Border Punch trim was added to fulfill the challenge requirement of featuring lace… I think it also adds a very pretty accent to the card too, don’t you?Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackTorn In Color 2011-13 Designer Series Paper in a polka dot pattern provides contrast to the pretty ruffled ribbon.Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackThe upper right corner looked a bit void and plain, so I added three tiny flower punches from the itty bitty punch pack, along with three medium basic jewel pearls.  Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackA second greeting from the “Bring on the Cake” stamp set was added to the interior of the card, along with another pretty two-step stamped bloom.Field_FLowers, Bring_on_the_Cake, birthday, card, pearls, ruffled_ribbon, lace, lace_ribbon_Border_punch, in_Color, ruffled_ribbon, printed_Brads, createdbyu_blogspot, Sharon_field, itty_Bitty_punch_PackUse the CS48t sketch shown here to create a card, scrapbook page or project and join the Creative-Sketches Design Team to play along with this week’s challenge!  Don’t forget to use ribbon and lace on your project too!  You know the drill Winking smile

Sharon, Your card is so beautiful! I am in love with this set and so happy we got it in our new catalogue! I did exactly the same thing as you did with stamping the flower centre -stamped the first image upside down!! Wonder how many others have done this too!!
