Fifth Avenue Floral and Top Note Die

Characterized by clean lines, smooth contours and classic textures, the Manhattan Style Watch collection is sophisticated, timeless and elegant. One of the wonderful and highly popular sets in the Spring-Summer Catalog and this group is Fifth Avenue Floral. Three line art flowers, a stem and a sentiment comprise the set of 5. Creative stampers have been coming up with so many ways to use these images, some of which are absolutely stunning!

Today's cards use the set in a palette of Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Not Quite Navy. I made one of the cards for my recent Stamp-A-Stack; they are both very similar but the second one is turned in a vertical orientation and a different ribbon treatment. Whisper White is diecut with the Top Note die in the Big Shot then stamped with the three flowers in the set, each in a different color. The edges were sponged then this was layered on Not Quite Navy and Kiwi Kiss.

The sentiment "Just for YOU" from the Oval All set is in Baja Breeze on white then punched out with the Large Oval Punch. This is then layered on a scallop oval which has been punched out with the fab new Scallop Oval punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog. This was layered onto a tag from the Sizzix Lots of Tags set of 4. What a gorgeous timesaver these dies are!! Not only are they quick and easy, BUT they cut perfectly! (unlike me! LOL!)
