We made a 3-d flower with the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch (#118073) and we placed it on matchboxes made with the Big Shot matchbox die (#114890). The "Friends" tea bag holder was made with the Sending Love Specialty paper (#117153) and the Vintage Vogue stamp set (#118598, clear or #117690, wood).
We also made fabric flowers that were cut out with the Big Shot Circles #2 die (#114526) and heated with heat tool (#100005) to curl up the edges of the synthetic fabric (lining fabrics work great for this) and Clear rhinestone brads (#113144) were used for the center.
The first card in the photo below is made with the Awash with Flowers stamp set (#117062, wood or #120549, clear) that is a sneak peak from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Idea book and catalog that will be out in July. You can purchase this stamp set this month or earn it through hosting a workshop. The colors I used on this card are chocolate chip, so saffron, and mellow moss. The print paper is from the Sweet Pea designer series paper pack (#117161) in the occasions mini catalog.
The "Mother's Day" card also uses paper from the Sweet Pea pack along with the sweet pea stiched felt (#117266). The background paper is Sahara Sand and the ribbon is Chocolate chip 5/8" satin (#117287).
The "bird card" is made with the Two-Step Bird punch (#117191),the Thoroughly Modern designer paper (#115673), button latte (#114333) and Kisses love notes (#118779). The colors are Sahara Sand, Burmuda Bay and Soft Suede.

The colors are Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, and Whisper white.
