Fabulous Pink Flowers
Two cards this morning with the SU set "Fabulous Flowers" I have seen such gorgeous cards with this set and although I wasn't drawn to this set in the catalog, it was a swap card I received last year that sent me over the edge. The card above is Rose Red base, wheeled with the Baroque wheel in versemark ink, then layered with Pretty in Pink and a piece of the pretty in pink DP from last year's hostess awards. The flower is stamped 3 times, in Pretty in Pink, and then Regal Rose is brushed on the edges of some of the petals (before stamping) with a sponge dauber. There is a rhinestone brad in the center. The pink dots on the sides are just hole punches! The sentiment is from a favorite set from a few years ago, "Mixed Greetings."
The next card is also made with Fabulous Flowers, also stamped 3 times, but this time using Regal Rose ink, with Rose Red sponged on the edges. The base of the card is Regal Rose, and the 2 designs of DP are also from the same hostess pack used above. There is a brown strip of cardstock across the middle with 2 rows of paper piercing. The sentiment "Dare to be Fabulous" is stamped in Chocolate Craft ink, (SU) and then embossed with "Detail Clear Embossing Powder." I'm looking forward to playing with this flower set even more and getting a little more creative with it, as well as experimenting with various colors of ink. Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend! Now that all the political speeches are over for a while, it's time to get outside and get some work done around my house!
