Hello crafty friends!! I hope you are having a great week!!

I have two cards to share with you today!! Funny story…I stamped the flowers from the Chin Up Buttercup stamp set and colored them. When I went to die cut them, there was three flowers in my stamp storage pocket, that I had colored previously. (If I have extra images that I don’t use, I store them in the stamp pocket with the stamp and dies.) Bonus!! Now I could make two cards!!

Let’s get started, shall we?

Here is a photo of both of my cards…

Here’s the first one…

Buttercup2

I began by stamping the buttercups from Chin Up Buttercup onto Bristol paper with Versamark Ink and embossing them with white embossing powder. I colored this one with Distress Inks and cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. The background was created by ink blending some white pigment ink with one of the Polka Dot Background Stencils onto light blue cardstock. The middle size circles in the Double Stitched Circles and the Stitched Scallop Circles Honey Cuts were cut from light blue and white cardstock and layered together. The circles were adhered to the left side of the card with foam adhesive, cutting off the excess. I tied a little twine around the flowers to form a small bouquet. The leaves and stems were adhered with liquid adhesive, while the blooms were popped up onto dimensional adhesive. The sentiments, from the With Sympathy stamp set were white heat embossed onto kraft cardstock strips. A few Moonlight Rhinestones were added for some shine!!

Here’s the second card that was created with the die-cuts that I found in the storage pocket…

Buttercup5

It was created the exact same way, except the buttercups were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

That’ll do it for me today!! Enjoy the rest of your week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!!
