Fifth Avenue Floral for Mojo Monday 135




Stampin'Up!s Fifth Avenue Floral is a "beeeauuutiful" set! I know I say this about many of Stampin'Up!s stamp sets but, it's true. There is so much you can do with this stamp set. I chose to stamp it twice on Pretty in Pink and Pixie Pink using Stazon Black ink. I paper pieced a bit of the flower and drew some lines using my VersaMarker on the petal edges to heat emboss Iridescent Ice on the edges.

The card base is Barely Banana textured card stock. It will be retiring in June. I'm not sure how I'm going to survive without this color :( but "c'est la vie". I then layered a piece of Very Vanilla and Bella Bleu Designer Series paper (another of my favorites!) on top.

The ribbon is Very Vanilla tied in a bow. I have finally learned a consistent way of tying bows ~ bunny ears! Really! Ellen Richards at Stampin'Up! did a great job showing how to tie knots and bows which is available on our demonstrator site "Stampin'Up! Inspirations" to demonstrators. I will try and put one together for those who aren't demonstrators ~ another great reason though to become a Stampin'Up! demo!

The bottom rectangle is another piece of Barely Banana with a small strip of Pretty in Pink punched with the Scallop Trim border. The sentiment is stamped on Barely Banana using Pixie Pink ink. The button is from the retired Button Bouquet set.
