Floral Statements … Thanks

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well, well, well … how did you like to two “Hello” cards? Two different styles but pretty easy to recreate.  Today I have another card from the Floral Statements for you featuring the “Thanks” greeting.

Yesterday cards were done with the Aqua Painter and a watercoloring technique.  On my card today I used the Stampin’ Blends to color my floral piece ….

Wow … right!  I stamped my image with the Momento Ink pad because I knew I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends today.  I choose the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Combo’s for my coloring fun.  I love the way they make me look like an artist! lol

Once I was done with my coloring I matted my work with Daffodil Delight Cardstock … and wrapped it all up with a bow.  The ribbon is actually wrapped around the entire card front.  Then I added a touch of the Daffodil Delight Gingham designer paper behind it.

My next step was to emboss the Whisper White with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder .. Oh my gosh, I love how “subtle” the texture is on this folder. Love it!  And now to complete my card, a little sparkle from my “Wink of Stella” and then I mounted everything onto my Daffodil Delight card base.

Tomorrow I have a card for you that will make you yearn for warm summer days!  Meet you back here then!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me today.

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.
