Happy Saturday! I've been busy working on samples that I can't show you quite yet (hint-check back tomorrow :-), but had just a few minutes and I thought I'd whip up a quick card!
This card came together so quickly and effortlessly that I decided to make several all at once! I purposefully left the front void of any sentiment, so that it could be added later (on the inside of course) as needed. After I finished my card, I really couldn't believe that this was the first time that I've inked up my Floral Frenzy set (a Papertrey set designed by Melissa Bickford)! Well, I can tell you this won't be the last you see of it, because I had way too much fun using it...and still have a ton of ideas I want to try! :-)
The color combo for this card actually came about from me being a slacker when it came to cleaning up my stamp room! I was in a hurry the other day to put stuff away (I'm one of those stampers that has to clean up after EVERY project), so instead of filing my cardstock packages in the color-coded order I have them in usually...I just quickly put them in front of all of the others (thinking I would do it later as I had more time). Well, this morning when i opened my cardstock drawer I saw these three colors together (Ocean Tides, Plum Pudding, & Ripe Avocado)...and was immediately smitten!
I'll admit that the black flower seemed a bit "dark" at first...but after I saw the finished product I concluded that it had a modern feel to it. I used my new Blossom Spellbinder dies...along with a button, ribbon, Linen Thread, & a coordinating stamp (also from Floral Frenzy) to create it.
Well, I'm headed back to my stamp room! A happy Saturday for me... :-) ~Laurie
