Triple Treat & Twitterpated: CCMC194

LOL!  I couldn't resist the alliteration temptation!    The Triple  Treat Flower (#122909) is a single stamp that has been available this year in the A La Carte section of the annual Stampin' Up! Catalog, but as of recent has been featured as one of the bonus products available free for a $50. Sale-A-Bration order (#127725)!  It has been widely popular because the design in the flower is such that it can be punched out with two different punches and yield two totally different flowers!  Let's look:

The TT Flower stamp was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink onto the same color paper for a tone-on-tone look, and then also onto Whisper White cardstock.  The red on white flower was punched with the Five Petal Flower Punch and two RHRed flowers were punched with the Fancy Flower Punch.  All these were layered together with Dimensionals onto a slightly larger RHRed flower punched with the Blossom Punch.  A Baja Breeze Glimmer Brad (from the Subtles Collection) centers the flower for a lovely touch of shimmer.

You can see the subtle tone on tone on the red flower in the above picture, as well as the "hello" from the Tiny Tags stamp set that was punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch and tucked under the Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon bow.

The front panel is a print from the Twitterpated Designer Paper; the color scheme for the card was taken from the Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Riding Hood Red used in the print.  Baja Breeze cardstock was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch was added under the designer paper panel.  Both the Whisper White and the designer paper were run through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder for texture. 

Three pearls  over the top left of the flower complete the sketch layout which is from Create with Connie and Mary CCMC194.  Thanks for the great sketch layout, ladies!  You can follow the link to see how the other participants used this week's sketch!
