New Colors Make Me Happy........


Just like early spring flowers hint of the summer ahead, these flowers give you a sneak peek of SU's new colors available this summer. The Early Espresso fence provides a backdrop for flowers made of Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Cajun Craze. And the green?? Welcome back Wild Wasabi! Even their names make me happy.............
(Thank you Stamping411 for the sketch and Mike Funke for the fence idea.)
Tools: Martha Stewart flower punch; Stampin' Up - 1/2in circle punch, Two Step Bird punch, Pinking Hearts Border, Little Leaves Die; paper crimper.

Love the card Linda. Love the idea of the fence too. I will have to CASE that one! now can you tell me what you used to either punch or cut those flowers? I don't think I have even seen a punch or die like that. BUT I MUST HAVE IT. LOL

The actual flower petals are from a Martha Stewart punch I had in my stash. I used SU punches for the centers, some stems and the fence top. Also used the paper crimper on the fence. Other stems went through the Big Shot using the Little Leaves die. :)
