Fabulous Rich Razzleberry!

The first stamp set I bought from Stampin' Up!™ was a flower set. (And I still have it.) I had never rubber stamped before and I had absolutely NO card making supplies. I used my kids' Crayola markers to color the stamps and I used construction paper (gasp!). Now I have many flower sets including this one called Fabulous Florets from Stampin' Up! and "real" markers and stamp pads and punches and... As they say, "You've come a long way baby!"
I used Rich Razzleberry and Regal Rose classic ink for the flowers. The Designer Series Paper is Old Olive from the Brights paper stack. The strip of Rich Razzleberry was embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder. The eyelet border was made with the Eyelet Border punch.
Here is a tip to make sure your solid image rubber stamps give a clean image. When you first get your stamps lightly sand them with a sanding block and clean them well. This will take off the chemical agent used on rubber stamps so they release from the molds.
