Fresh Vintage, Blossom Punch in Poppy Parade

Wow, love that Fresh Vintage set and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper Collection!  And I love even more that is it FREE!!  These are two of Stampin' Up!'s bonus products available for free with a $50.00 merchandise purchase during Sale-A-Bration (ends March 31, but don't wait when you can be creating NOW with them!!)  I used them both plus the wonderful new Blossom Punch for my card today:
That's the Everyday Enchantment print in the background, framed by running the cardstock through the Big Shot with the #121809 Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.   
The flower is punched from Poppy Parade (two layers) then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  You can see that it is spritzed with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz as is the card and other elements except the ribbons.  One of the new Large Pearl embellishments is the flower center.
The square stamp is stamped in Poppy and punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch; I love it when images and punches match, don't you?!  What a time-saver!  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set; both are touched with tiny Pearl embellishments.

You can see the shading on the edges of the Designer Paper and on the raised embossed frame;  just a section of a Stampin' Sponge and some Crumb Cake Ink do the job quickly!
 The base card is Very Vanilla cardstock.  Victoria 5/8" Lace Trim and ribbon are looped and anchored with Mini Glue Dots before the flower is attached with Dimensionals.  You can see that there is some stamping inside to carry the theme and color scheme through.

     A word to the wise about Poppy Parade:  it is one of the five 2010-2012 In Colors that will be retiring very soon (oh, no!).  Sale-A-Bration is the perfect time to make sure that you have stocked up on the Ink Refills, card stock and accessories in these colors that you will need, because once they are gone in May, they will be gone forever!!  Remember that the new Idea Book and Catalog (including the NEW In Colors) will make it's appearance on June 1st and the retiring In Color products will no longer be available for purchase!!   (In fact, they are usually sold out before the current catalog ends!)  Just a little fyi....

I hope you have a little time to stamp some this weekend!  Thanks for dropping by for a visit!
