A Triple Treat Thank You


The fun is already well under at Less is More this week as it's a colour challenge of Brown and Pink.  I'm sure it's going to be very popular so loads of inspiration to be had.  

For my card I've gone with the very pretty Triple Treat Flower.  This is one of the many stamps on the Retiral List. If you haven't had a look yet then please do as items are bound to sell out quickly.  

You can see the retiring stamp sets here

It's always a shame to see favourite stamp sets go but it's also very exciting to look forward to the new products which will be with us in October.  And I'm sure you will be blown away with the new catalogue.  It's huge!  Make your wish list achievable by joining my Virtual Hostess club starting in October.  Put your name down now to secure one of the last places left. 

I've stamped the flower first in Soft Suede onto Whisper White, then on another piece in Melon Mambo.  This single stamp can be used so many ways.  The Fancy Flower and the 5 Petal Flower Punches both fit this stamp.  However if you don't already have the 5 Petal Flower Punch then sorry to say but it has already sold out! 

I don't have this punch but found I could very easily cut it out using my Paper Snips.  I slightly curled the petals inwardly and attached it with a Dimensional.  I've added a Crumb Cake Neutral button to the centre with some Linen Thread  threaded through it.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede and is from Curly Cute.  I used my handy Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up.  

The Whisper White panel was attached to A Melon Mambo mat after the top corner was torn.  Using a white gel pen I added a pattern round the edge of the mat.  The card base is Soft Suede.

I love this stamp and didn't get it until it was ready to retire. Needless to say, it's staying on my shelf! This makes me glad I've kept it!
