Blooming Flowers

Have you made your Spring and Easter  Cards?   The cards below, can be used for just about any occasion throughout spring.
The first card is from the stamp set 'Field Flowers'.  I used the tissue paper technique for the base of the flower.  This is a fun, quick and effective method.  The colors used in the card are from the 'In Color' group which will be retired this June.  I will miss this group, so I plan to make as many cards as possible using these colors.


In the card above I used the 'Blooming with Kindness' stamp set.  It is very versatile for many different occasions having  five good sentiments.  I plan to keep this stamp set in my collection of stamps; however, the Easter Blessings is not one of the five sentiments.  It is a single stamp you can find in the Stampin Up spring catalog, ' Making A difference For 25 Years'.

                               Same stamp set just different colors.  I am not sure which colors I like best.

The card below is like the card I made at pre-convention this last summer.  I love how the card fans out and can be used on a desk at work or anywhere on a counter for a decoration. The flowers are stamped from the 'Mixed Bunch' stamp set, and punched out with the 'Blossom' punch.

The last card below is a card I made for a swap at convention last summer.  The white and red flowers are embossed.  The stamp set is called 'Summer Silhouettes.
