Farewell to Flower Fest

Well it's a little discouraging.... when you see the incredibly long list of Stampin' Up Sets and Accessories that are retiring May 31st.... that's the glass is half empty scenario..... so the glass if half full scenario would be ... just think of all the new goodies that will be available really soon!! woo  hoo!

One of the sets that is Going Going Gone... has always been my favorite.. Flower Fest...  Well Mary Fish came up with some quick and easy darling little note cards made using the flowers and butterfly from that set... which fit perfectly into the new Petite Purse Bigz L Die....

  • Using Stampin' Up! Sponge Daubers to add color to the Flower Fest line images gives a hip, modern finish.  The less precise you are with the color--the better!

  • The four mini cards (1 1/2 x 1 3/4") tuck into the Petite Purse. Each card has a single message from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set (fabulous, beautiful, kind, friend).
