Flower Power

>> Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I admit I'm pretty bad about cleaning up after I stamp; I usually push my scraps and extras into a pile and deal with it at some later time.  It was from those scraps that this card was born.  I came across the negative part from some die cut flowers.  They were made for embellishment on another project, but before tossing them, I decided to use them as a stencil and create a floral thank you card. 

I chose some pastel ink colors and simply sponged the flowers in a random pattern.  I used the
Deco Thank You Greeting in the corner and embellished a few of the centers with some gems.

It was so easy and fun!  I think I may keep these and any other scraps in a little baggie for future stencil projects.

Here's another graduation card I made using the A New Beginning Greeting.  Choosing to play off the word time in the sentiment, I dry embossed the background using a clock themed folder, and added 3 of the Brush Mortarboards that were stamped and fussy cut.

After it was assembled, the greeting looked a bit sparse, so I inked up one of the tiny grad caps from the Graduation Background stamp and added it to the corner.  

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

These are wonderful, Karin! I admit, my desk has the same problem. But then again some of the best cards are born of leftovers and stuff sitting around. Love the happy colors on your thank you card & your grad card is wonderful.
