Floral Thank You

I hope you're having a great day!!  I'm loving all the flowers in my garden ! Each day is a new bloom ready to reveal itself! If you love flowers too then you need to check out the new PoppystampsFlower Patch Stamp Set! It's packed full of floral images - some are solid that you just need to ink, and others are outline drawings that you can color. There are even sentiments so you have everything you need to complete a card. You can see all the images on the linky at the bottom of this post.

I started with a distress background. I wanted the color to peek out from behind the pretty die Woodland Oval Frame. I kept laying the die over the inked area to make sure that the coverage was good. Using the same ink I stamped a few flower images. Last I mixed a little distress ink with water and splattered it over the card. Background complete! Time to decorate!
I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the floral frame and then stamped and die cut lots of leaves and flowers to make a pretty arrangement. The coordinating die cuts make this a breeze. I cut lots of flowers stamped in many different colors so I would be able to choose the ones I wanted for this. I wish you could have seen my desk - so many colors!
The stamp set includes a variety of images that you can use to single stamp ( like the red rose) or double stamps - the darker shade on the purple flower is the same stamp. Even the pattern double stamped on the leaf (the veins) can be used as a single stamped image - and there are die cuts to match both. Don't you love that little butterfly?
A sprinkle of clear sequins (I didn't want them competing with the color of the flowers) adds just the right amount of sparkle!
One good turn deserves another ! What a great way to say thank you! I think the recipient will know how much you care with a hand made card!

Have a beautiful day!
