No strings and I get a FREE gift?!?
Candy boxes for all!

Let's get back to basics!

 Don't you just love when you get done with a card and you would not change a thing?  Yes, me too and I had some much fun creating this one:

Flowers watermarked

I just LOVE the color combo for this and so proud that it was simple!  (It is, I promise!)  Sometimes I get caught up with adding this element and that element, and forget the pure beauty of plain 'ol stamping!   What else do I love about this?  You can make this card with any flower set you may own.  I started with Blooms and Wishes because of the all the different floral elements and the greenery stamps.  I am pretty sure I am close to owning all current floral stamp sets because they are so beautiful, I can't help myself!  LOL  :)  Key points in creating this kind of scattered background:

  • Be sure to always stamp off the edge of the cardstock to get flowers to look natural, this is a must.
  • Start with lighter colors for your larger flowers.
  • Think outside the box!  I used a new pencil eraser for the middle of the small flowers.  Simply tap, tap on your ink pad, then right on to your card.  For this one, I went in a circular motion to soften the circle.
  • Always try to stamp 3 of each image.  Again, this is to add visual interest and create a balanced card.

Let me show you what some of my crafty friends came up with when creating this card:

 Cute right?  I love the sediment that Melissa picked for hers - perfection!!!  :)  I also like how just changing the cardstock base color, makes it different too.  Check this out:

I had a hard time picking the background paper but think Tip Top Taupe won slightly over Watermelon Wonder.  What do you think?  Are you ready to try one of your own?  Anyone one who shares their creation on my blog, email or my Facebook page will get a special gift from me!  Yes - I am talking to you!  :) 

Thanks for stopping by!
