The stamp set that I am featuring is called Sweet Stems item #113726. My first project that I am sharing is a card. The base is Pretty in Pink, then Rose Red. Next I used some Pumpkin Pie Patterns Designer Series Paper. I cut a strip of Old Olive and used the Scallop Edge punch on one side. I took some 1/4 Rose Red grosgrain ribbon and wrapped that around the Old Olive. Next I cut a piece of So Saffron Patterns Designer Series Paper, I took some 1/2 striped Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and wrapped that around it. I took the thank you from Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped it in Rose Red classic ink and stamped it on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the Curly Label Punch.  I took a sponge dauber and sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie classic ink. I cut a piece of Whisper White and stamped the flower image from Sweet Stems in Black Stazon ink. Then colored it in with a Blender Pen and the following inks, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I cut a piece of Rose Red to layer behind it and popped it up on dimensionals. To finish it off I add some of Designer Buttons called Sherbet.
