I loved these stamps the minute I saw them, an just had to order them! They are just so cute, and very versatile. I saw a card using this similar layout, and it was the first one I wanted to make with this set.
Cutting out the individual flowers was a bit tedious, but I only had to do it for four cards, so not too bad ;) I also always keep my Stampin Up! dimensionals handy, and don't toss the sheets when all the dots are gone! They come in handy for cards like this, when you need itty bitty pieces.
I colored the stems in with Copic markers, YG93, YG95, and YG97. The yellow centers were with Y02, Y04 and Y06. I went along the outside of the the yellow and the lines down the petals with C1. Then I stamped the 'water' in the jars with Versamark watermark ink.
I learned this trick, but I think it was Karissa, a fellow cardmaker and retreat-er, thanks Karissa! It works nicely for wrapping ribbon around cards. I used to use a small (1" I think) circle punch until I finally broke down and ordered this slot punch. When the card is folded in half, slide the punch onto the folded edge and punch. Only punch a sliver of the edge, not a big piece. This way, the hole is hardly noticeable.
This stamp set comes with a bunch of sentiments, and coordinating dies, which I LOVE! I really dislike having to hand-cut things, and this makes it so much easier. It fits perfectly, and the edges are nice and smooth.
