Have a Beautiful Day Bouquet Card

(as always, click on any photo to enlarge!)

Last week, Jenny at gingerninjacrafts blog made a card called Cocktail Friday .

I really loved the combination of citrus colors, and used them in a card. Thanks, Jenny, for the inspiration!

I first stamped the bouquet in a really light ink and heat set it. I wanted to be able to blend the individual flowers – difficult because they are small. After heat setting the blended colors, I stamped the bouquet again in a brown ink and embossed with clear powder.

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, die – Avery Elle, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, twine – Martha Stewart.

Floral and Gingham Anniversary Card

YES, I got motivated after dinner Wednesday night.

I decided to save myself some time by using colored cardstock for the flowers and leaves instead of coloring the images.

Sadly, I am almost out of Orchid Opulence and YoYo Yellow scraps.
