simple cards

Floral Friendship

This card started as a completely different idea in my head! Does this ever happen to you? I wanted to make a card with the Under My Umbrella bundle. As you can see-that didn’t happen. The color inspiration came from the Dressed to Impress DSP! The flowers in the DSP were so close to the smaller roses in the Beautiful Friendship (Anuual Catalog 149252, pg 123), that I was going to make a light background with them. Well, the thought train derailed and jumped onto a different track! I LOVE how it turned out!

One of the benefits of the Beautiful Friendship stamp set is that you can stamp in generations! (stamp on the ink pad once and get 1 to 3 images from that one inking).

The roses were stamped with Lovely Lipstick, but I stamped on my grid paper first, then the Whisper White to make it a softer hue. I adore hydrangeas! I wish it wasn’t so hot in Texas-my yard would have tons of them! So, for those, I stamped them with the Highland Heather and used the one inking 2 times! The leaves Mint Macaron at full strength and the accent sprig was stamped with So Saffron. The big rose bunch was stamped with Blushing Bride.

I stamped the sentiment with Basic Grey so it wasn’t so in your face! Then I colored the Basic Pearls with the Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. A few brushes of Wink of Stella and some Polka-Dot Tule and it was done! I did stamp some edges of leaves and hydrangeas to the sentiment so it blended in a bit.
