The brand new Flourishing Phrases floral stamp set and Flourish Thinlit flower dies are an amazing combo! Look at these pretty cards – I created the one on the left for Christine's birthday!! The flower set and Bundle (at 10% off) are found on pg 49 and you can see the full set of dies on pg 194, or see them at the bottom of this post in the product photos.
I used several new 2016 In Colors on these cards for a nice spring/summer feel. The flower is "stamped off" before stamping in the background with Peekaboo Peach ink on Whisper White cardstock. I die cut the flowers, leaves and border with Pool Party, Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the Flourish thinlit dies and my Big Shot. After adding them to my card I layered that whisper white piece onto Flirty Flamingo, then onto a Thick Whisper White folded card (left) and a Very Vanilla folded card (right).
I added all of the die cuts using the Multipurpose glue (sparingly).. I found that to be the best adhesive for intricate die cut pieces. What do you like to use?
Don't worry if you are getting confused with all the names of the new flower sets and dies in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, because you know what.. for the most part they all coordinate together no matter what you try!! yay!!
I have to tell you what an amazing difference it makes to use the new Big Shot platform (#142802, pg 190).. you truly are going to love this platform when die cutting any design that has intricate openings like these flowers..
Really, I'm not kidding.. . run your die back and forth through the Big Shot with the new Big Shot platform and you'll be amazed at the results!! It's so worth the investment!

Below: New Flirty Flamingo ribbon accents the card. Happy Birthday greeting is stamped in Watercolor Wonder ink and is found in the new Better Together greeting set on pg 83 of the new catalog.
This fabulous new greeting set has me smiling.. did you see it on pg 83? It's my new favorite all occasion rubber stamp set!
I created this Wish You.. card on a Very Vanilla folded card base to tie in the Vanilla Lace ribbon. It's sooo pretty, and soft and easy to tie. It has such a soft and warm feel, don't you think?

Love these cards Patty! Hopefully I will get to play with my new stuff today or tomorrow.
The prices seem off for the products you used. I think they are from Canada.
Wow, these are so pretty and eye-catching! That color combo is so fresh and cheerful!
