Cone Flowers

Hi All! Happy Monday!!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. The weather was OK here, it rained some, but it's really warm today!

I have two cards to share with you, both of which I made with my stamp club girls last week. Each of these cards uses the new stamp set Inspired by Nature from Stampin' Up!. One card uses just white craft ink to stamp the image and the other uses that same ink, but then I added on pastels to give some color.

This first card uses the Baja Breeze and Night of Navy cardstock. I stamped the cone flower image in craft white and then added the ribbon across the bottom. I also stamped the sentiment directly on the ribbon. This sentiment is from the set Short and Sweet.


This next card is Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, and Chocolate Chip. I stamped the cone flower image in craft ink again and then sponged on pastels to give color to the flowers. I paper pierced the edging and added a photo corner and brads to complete this card.

These are two very similarly made cards with two completely different looks. For added punch you could emboss the craft ink with white EP to make a bolder image on the first card.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day, happy stamping!! :)
