Beautiful Friendship

To day I am featuring the new stamp set called Beautiful Friendship. It is found on page 123 of the annual catalogue. This is a new set in the distINKtive line.
I like the way these flowers look stamped in muted tones, like I have done on this card.

 The colours I used are Seaside Spray, Highland Heather, Soft Seafoam and Daffodil Delight (stamped off). I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black and used the Layering Ovals dies to cut it out.
The soft, muted tones look very pretty.
The card dimensions are:
card base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
card panel: 5" x 4 3/4"
mat: 5 1/8" x 4 7/8"

To see how this card was created, please watch my video on youtube.

Pretty Purple Daisies

The first Monday of every month I offer Coffee and a Card at my studio. Tonight we created a pretty card using the Daisy Lane stamp set and matching punches. We also used some of the Purple Posy designer Series paper.

 I added some of the matching designer series paper to the inside of the envelope...I think it adds a really special touch!
 The flowers were stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather and then punched out with their matching punches. I used dimensionals between the petals of each flower to add well, dimension. :)

A few basic jewel rhinestones here and there add some sparkle. Sometimes the simple cards turn out to be the best! I love how this came together. To see how to create this card from start to finish, watch my video on You tube. Here are the measurements:
-card base whisper white thick 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
-purple posy card stock 5" x 3 3/4"
-whisper white front panel 5 1/4" x 4"
-purple posy designer series paper 3/4" x 4"
