Yeah I know... 2 posts in one day!!!
My best friend has asked me to make her some cards and the only thing she said she wanted was flowers! No colours- just flowers!
So I have made 12 so far!! I will put them up on my blog over the next few days.
My first card uses the retired set Stem Silhouettes. I loooovvve this set and was very sad when it retired. I stamped the background stamp from Oh So Lovely hostess set in Bashful Blue on Bashful cardstock. I then stamped the "flower" image in Night of Navy. I stamped the Barely Banana cardstock using the Canvas background stamp. I finished off the card with Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon.
I was on a roll with Bashful Blue so this card was also made with that colour. I stamped the stems from Artfully Asian set (my newest favourite set) in black stazon and then coloured the image in using my Aqua painters and inkpads- Brocade Blue and Always Artichoke. I then sponged the edges in Brocade. I added a loop of wide Brocade ribbon and secured it with a brad. The background cardstock is Artichoke and Certainly Celery.
My last card for tonight also uses colours from the Soft Subtle family- Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow. I cased this card from SCS but I cannot remember who (sorry... let me know if if looks familiar). I have used the Season of Joy set which is in the Spring Mini Catalogue. I stamped the swirly stamp in River Rock and added Pink and Sage mini flowers. I then Stamped the bigger flower in Pink and Sage, cut them out and put a silver brad in the centres.
I love all three of these cards. There are no sentiments yet because I am not sure what my friend wants on them.
Stay tuned for more in the next few days!
