The next three pictures use the True Friend Stamp set. I didn't love this when it first came out but it was very easy to work with and I think I fell in love with it last night. I used a lot of versa mark on these cards. It makes a great background.
the next two cards use Baroque basics. I have Baroque motifs and use it a lot. I also used the big flower from the pretties kit and laid it on the bayou blue stamp pad. Then I used my bone folder to press the flower into the ink pad. The color was still a little blotchy so I used the aqua painter to brush the the color all over the flower. I then let it dry and adhered it with crystal effects. I punched a circle of chocolate and coverd it in crystal effects to give it a shine and adhered it to the center of the flower.
These next two I made with the Birthday Whimsy Sale-a-bration set. I love it. It's perfect for all birthdays; boys, girls, men, women, friends. . .everyone! Both cards were made using the In colors.
Okay so I have wanted big flowers and little flowers forever--why don't I get them? I don't know becaue they are awesome!!!!!!!!! So easy to work with. I think they would be great to do a one sheet wonder with. You all know what that is don't you?
I also have to say that last July when the new In Colors were released I wasn't in love. I espcially didn't love the purely pomegrante. But I've learned to love the pomegrante, especially the thick satin ribbon.
Well I hope you like all the ideas. I'm getting a shipment of new toys tomorrow so keep checking this week for more samples.
