Bring on The Flowers

I made two cards for this week's ABC blog challenge and this week's challenge is an easy one.  Simply create a card using flowers.  Your flowers could be your stamped image, designer series paper, embellishment, etc.  With today being the first day of spring I enjoyed making these cards and using some flowers!

I began making this card by stamping my image and I stamped it off first and then I stamped it onto my card stock.  I wanted the image to be lighter so that I could stamp my sentiment over it.  Once I had my image stamped I cut it out using my oval framelits and I cut an oval black layer for behind it.

My background was dry embossed using my honeycomb embossing folder and I decided to dig through my scraps for some dsp to use as banners and I found some from a retired 6x6 paper stack.  I cut them into strips and using my 1" corner punch I notched off the ends.  Then I assembled my card and I added some basic pearls on my flower layer for my embellishment.

Card #8 out of 100 towards my goal of 100 cards in 100 days.

Stamps:  Love & Sympathy, Field Flowers
Card Stock:  White, Black, Sahara Sand, SU Paper Stack DSP (retired)
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Black Stazon
Supplies:  Big Shot, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Oval Collection Framelits, 1" Square Punch, Basic Pearls

Here's another flower card I made.  I just stamped the flower stem using old olive ink and then I stamped the flowers using daffodil delight and so saffron ink.  My sentiment was stamped using early espresso and then I added my ribbon and assembled my card, quick and easy. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will come over and play along this week with us at ABC Challenges!

Patty, I love your cards! The same sentiment looks great on BOTH cards but each card has it's own feel. I have had to detour from paper crafting for a few weeks as I work on home projects but I will be back soon and posting on your challenge blog! Yahoo :) Thanks for always inspiring me with your posts :) Kathi
