This morning I made 3×3 tags that I needed for some thank yous on my customer orders and decided to use a color challenge that I found and the new Bouquet Bunch stamp set.  This set will be available in the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog  beginning May 1st.  Demonstrators get to pre-order items from the mini catalogs so we can start working on ideas and samples.  This is also a 2-step stampin’ set which I’ve been using a lot of this month since there are some on special.

The color challenge is called Curtain Call Color Challenge – Act 26.

I have not seen this one before so it is new to me.  I liked the colors for this challenge so I thought I would give it a try.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Basic Grey, Going Grey and Whisper White.

The flowers are stamped once on the White square and once one another piece of white and cut out.  I colored them in with the Crushed Curry marker and then sponged around them with Crushed Curry ink.  I think really only some are flowers and some are leaves but I wanted the look of a full flower tree so I just colored them all.

The pot is stamped on Crushed Curry card stock and cut out.  I tied a piece of white embroidery thread around it – I think I should have used linen thread though because it is finer than what I used.  The image of the pot has a string tied around it so I was trying to include that as a real item.

The little thank you is from the Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set and then punched with the Curly Label punch and tucked under the gray square.  This little stamp set is just the right size for 3×3 cards and you can mix and match the pieces for different variations.
