Two for Tuesday: Floral Statements

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Tuesday … and I have a two for Tuesday for you today!  I chose the Floral Statements stamp sets … one of those that I just had to have but have not sat down to play with it until now.  What was I waiting for … wooo!  I have two different looks for you and I’m using the “Hello” stamp from the set.

My first card is going to be pretty easy and monochromatic; Old Olive and Whisper White …

Once I inked the stamp in Old Olive and stamped it onto the Whisper White cardstock, I grabbed my Aqua Painter and added a touch of Old Olive Watercoloring onto the leaves.  Then I just colored my flowers in with my buddy “Wink of Stella”.  Love the sparkle on the card and it really creates a stunning effect!  I matted my greeting with Old Olive then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now let’s see what it looks like with a punch of color.  The color pallet for the second card is …

I have a passion for pink and grey so I decided that would be next on my agenda!  I stamped my flowers in Basic Grey and that will also be the base of the card.  I knew I wanted to add a pop of color so I went to the fun “Tropical Escape” Designer paper.  It is the mat for my greeting and the pink pop of color.

Since my Aqua Painter was handy, I again gently colored in the leaves with the Shaded Spruce and then did the flowers in Blushing Bride.  Any you know what came next … that’s right, Wink of Stella. I just love that sparkle, can’t help it.

Soooo… what do you think? Fun right! Well stop by tomorrow because I have the second stamp from this set for you to see.

Till then, have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.
