Flowers

I have been in a HUGE flower mood lately. I have so many flower stamps that I decided to be creative with them. It's really hard for me to make cards that are NOT bright and bold. I'm not sure what my fascination with bright colors is but...who cares...right?!? Bright colors make me smile!

I used a Stampin Up stamp set that I got a couple of years ago to make this card. The stems and flowers are two different stamps. The first and fourth flower are not stamps. They are flowers made by a paper punch and then I put a yellow flower brad in the middle. Don't you just love ALL the different colors?



















Ok, you're not going to believe this (well that's a bit dramatic because I'm sure you'll believe it) but this card has very little stamping on it. The only thing stamped is the "For You" down in the corner. Isn't that great? So those of you that don't have stamps......look what you could do! The flower are from a paper punch that I got at the craft store and then I put square metal brads in the middle of them. You could even print the "For You" on your computer and avoid stamping all together!

I got the flower punch at Hobby Lobby which is very similar to Michael's or Joann's.
