Doesn’t this card just burst with color!!  Another new stamp set from the 2014-2015 Stampin Up Catalog.  Flower Patch is a set of 19 stamps and comes in Photopolymer.  Photopolymer is a clear plastic stamp mounted to the clear blocks.  Easy to stamp with and you can see right through them meaning no need for a label on the stamp and much easier for alignment.

BloomingThis set comes with coordinating Framelit dies.   Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry inks were used.  I gave this card to my friend, Iris, who is an avid gardener.

You can make it, too!  Hop on over to Shop Here and check out this stamp set and accessories.

See you tomorrow for more inspiration.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and was so excited to see that Stampin Up added the Framelit Mustache to the catalog.  This Framelit also coordinates with the stamp set Well Worded.
