I just recently “unearthed” this card made with the amazing “Sentimental Park” Bundle which was buried on my stamping desk! I only had a few days to play with this bundle before we left for our trip back to Maryland and Virginia. When I returned from my trip, Stampin’ Up! had already announced the “Retiring List” and I began the process of preparing for the NEW Color Refresh and NEW Annual Catalog release. Basically, this means moving items to be retired and deciding if I will keep or sell them. I will admit that I worked at this slowly, meaning a little each day! I decided to post this card since it did carry over in to the NEW Annual Catalog p. 36, but not at the “bundled” price. This stamp set and dies also coordinate with the “Petal Park” stamps and “Petal Park Builder” Punch, AC p. 37 & 149.

This particular card was easy, some basic two-step stamping, die-cutting and assembling. I chose “Basic White”, “Flirty Flamingo” and “Sweet Sorbet” for my color palette. The filled image for the two-step flowers were stamped off in “Sweet Sorbet” and this resembled “Flirty Flamingo” very closely. I love the “geometric” label shapes, especially the one with the die cut flowers attached. Adding a few die cut flowers in “Flirty Flamingo”, “Sweet Sorbet” and “Basic White” added some dimension to the card. I did add a few small “Pearls” to the flower centers, some of which I colored with a “Flirty Flamingo Blends”. To complete this card, I added a bow in “White Crinkled Seam Binding“. I will miss this ribbon as it was my “go to” because it could be colored with any color of “Blends”!
