Summer Smooches and Flowers

The onset of spring is filled with budding trees and plants and flowers everywhere.  Now that the storms and rain have abated, we are having beautiful weather here and lots of sunshine.  Perfect!  So when I was making this card with bright spring-y colors, the stamp  "Live in the sunshine" quickly came to mind.
"Summer Smooches" is a new product suite that will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, which debuts on June 1st.  However, Stampin' Up! is giving us the opportunity to purchase these items this month to break out of the winter blahs and into the spring sunshine with these fun products.  I love Daffodil Delight and this suite brings us the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper featuring not only Daffodil Delight but also Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Baja Breeze!
 The flower is punched from the Designer Paper using the Fancy Flower punch, centered with a Daffodil Flower punched with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch; this is attached over a Tangerine Tango Scallop Circle punchout.  Can you help but notice the beautiful Summer Smooches Fabric Designer Brad in Tangerine Tango that centers the flower?  These are NOT in the new Catalog but available only the month of April!  A length of the new Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon sets off the flower.
An Island Indigo banner cut from more Summer Smooches DSP is the backdrop for the single flower.  The background is Baja Breeze cardstock layered over a Daffodil Delight card.  The quote was stamped with Island Indigo Ink onto Daffodil Delight and punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch. A strip of the designer paper was added to the bottom inside of the card.

The Summer Smooches Special is available ONLY this month of April.  You can order it from your demonstrator if you have one, or through my online Stampin' Up! website HERE and it will be shipped right to your doorstep!  

Thanks for visiting today!  Happy stamping!
