Had some time to play with this beautiful floral set.

On this first card the image was stamped with a light pink ink.  As the blooms were colored, the lines blended away.

Love this watercolored look!  However, next time I’ll have to remember to stamp the leaves using green ink! Smiley.RollEyesAni

I’ve entered a few challenges with this card:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: “Simon Says: ‘Anything Goes'”

STAMPlorations: “February CAS Card Challenge”
Blog630STAMPlorationsFebCASBadge

The Color Throwdown: Throwdown #381 – “Pink, Light Green and Kraft.”

CAS on Sunday: “Challenge #77 – One Layer Wonder”

Cards in Envy: “Tickled Pink Card Challenge” – “cards that are mostly pink or have a pink focal point”

Seize the Birthday: “Anything Goes”

This is another floral image from the set.  After coloring, the image was fussy cut.

A black marker was used to color around the flower to eliminate the white edge.  The flower was then adhered to a dry embossed piece of designer paper.

This last card uses the same image as the first, but this time it is stamped using black ink.

The lines are meant to be seen for a much bolder look.

Here are a couple of cards that are the same… but a little different, too.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The first card uses brighter greens on the leaves, some yellows on the blooms and a small accent of black grosgrain ribbon.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

A white gel pen was used to accent the flower centers and the leaves.

The second card has darker leaves, a little grunge, a little distressing and two patterns of designer paper.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

As with Card 1, a white gel pen was used on the leaves and flowers.  However on Card 2 a glitter pen was added to the flower centers.

Valentine’s Day is just a week away, so today’s cards are all about love!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Card 1 is a clean and simple style.

The sentiment was slightly popped up, and the designer paper was lighted sanded for a distressed feel.

CAS on Sunday: “Challenge #76, Valentine”

This card is also playing along in this week’s Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers: “CAS363 – Won’t you call me Sweetheart”

Card 2 uses one of my favorite techniques.. sponging.  Always love that sharp line of color that appears as the masking paper is pulled away.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Silhouetted blooms were stamped, and Stickles was added to the center.  Some of the branches were dotted with a white gel pen.  The sentiment along the side was popped up on foam tape.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Playing in a couple of challenges, too:

CASology: “Week 183: GLITTER”

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog:  “#148 Use A Love Sentiment”

I went with a white on white design for Card 3.

Have always loved this look for a wedding card.

Isn’t this a beautiful die!!  The flowers were also die cut and added to the heart with pearls on top.
