Wow… who would have thought Stampin’ Up! would name a stamp set after me? Pour moi? C'est la vie! LOL, I know the set wasn’t really named after my family… just like Sharon Field at Golden Gate Park after me. Field Flowers is such a beautiful Stamp Set, it was on my “must have” list as soon after I received my 2011-12 Idea Book and Catalog preview copy.
I know you’re going to love this stamp set too… and you can get your Field Flowers Stamp Set delivered right to your door by using my online stampin’ up store.

Today’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge # 53 uses the colors old olive, Always Artichoke, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, and Whisper White… perfect setting the Field Flowers Stamp Set! What’s the first thing you notice on this card? Is it the popped up flowers, faux stitching, fancy ticket punched corners or the prairie points along the left side?Tip: How to make Prairie Points
- Cut a 1” strip of card stock or DSP*.
- Cut 1” squares from the 1” strip*.
- Use paper snips to cut each square on a diagonal.
- Attach in a staggering, overlapping fashion to your scrapbook page or card using Mini Glue Dots.
* Alternately, you could use a 1” square punch along a strip of DSP or card stock. Each bloom was stamped twice, once on the Whisper White card stock layer, and a second time on a scrap. The Field Flowers Stamp Set is a two-step stamping set, so two images were used to make each bloom, stamping first in Bashful Blue and then Marina Mist Classic Ink.After cutting the scrap blooms out with paper snips, they were then popped on top of the stamped bloom using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stems were stamped in Always Artichoke Classic Ink, and then colored to fill with an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker. Looking at the photo above, I guess I could have colored them in a bit more!!Faux Stitching, a pretty Polka Dot Scalloped Ribbon Bow, and a Wide Oval punched greeting from the same set finish off the card.There are two layers of Stampin’ Dimensionals on this card too.. once behind the bashful blue/prairie point layer, and a second time on the blooms and greeting. Overall, it still has a fairly flat profile, and could easily be mailed.

On a personal note… I’m playing catch-up this week after a whirlwind weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina for my Darling Niece’s wedding! It was good to spend time with family and friends, but now there’s a lot of work to do! Maybe I’ll post some pictures later this week too!
See you tomorrow with a new challenge from the Stampin’ Queens Design Team! I look forward to reading your comments!
