Leadership Swap #1

Here's one of my swaps for Leadership...
It has the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp from the Sale-A-Bration catalog,
the Sycamore Street Designer Series paper from Sale-A-Bration,
and the Madison Avenue stamp set for the inside of the
flower and the flower stem.  Don't you love those names??
I used the new paper-piercing pack from the Spring catalog to
pierce holes around the flower, which was punched using the Blossom punch
from the annual catalog.  (The same punch I used for the snowflake
stamp in a previous post.)

Below is a closeup of the flower.  I stamped it in Pool Party ink with the Mixed Bunch stamp set.
The inside of the flower is Rich Razzleberry and so is the cardstock.  The stem is stamped with Summer Starfruit ink, which at first I thought I didn't really care for, but is now one of my faves!!
And, of course, what flower isn't complete without some bling?  This again is the mondo rhinestones found in the Spring catalog.



  1. Love this, absolutely stunning. Did you use a punch for the centre of the flower?

    1. Hi, Sophie! The center of the flower was cut out with the Floral Framelits (item 127012) through the Big Shot. If you've got a Stampin' Up annual catalog, they're found on page 191.
      Thanks for your comment!
