Flower Kissed Cards

Hello Everyone,

I haven’t posted anything in a few days and today was the only chance that I had to post these two cards. This has been a rough week for me and I am hoping that the next week will be better.
I inked the large Blossom stamp (CG271) with soft apricot and inked the box plaid stamp (S5369) with weathered wood distress ink and kissed the two stamps together then stamped the large blossom stamp on white paper. The sentiment was embossed with clear embossing ink that was stamped with black soot distress ink. When the weathered wood ink and the soft apricot ink were combined on the box plaid stamp, it changed the color to look like an olive green. I thought that using the Box plaid stamp with the large blossom stamp made the flowers look like they were growing on a trellis. Stamps used for this card are Hero Arts: The Flowing Flowers stamp (CG146) was used for the background of the card, the Envelope Pattern (S5507) was used on the tag, and the sentiment comes from the Be Happy stamp set (CL377).

For this next card, I used Pearlescent sky blue ink on the Flower medley stamp (K5361) and inked the Flourish Background stamp (CG119) with chipped Sapphire Distress ink and then stamped the flower medley stamp on white paper. The sentiment comes from the Truly Appreciated stamp set (CL380).
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and have a great day.

Just lovely cards, Sue! Sure hope this week will be much better for you, too. I don't always find time to make cards, photo them and then do a blog post either. I am amazed by others who seem to keep 'em coming every day!

Beautiful! Both cards are wonderful - I really like those white flowers in the second card - they just seem to leap out and want to pull me into spring.

These are both beautiful! Love the flowers and how you did the greeting on the first card Sue.

These are both beautiful Sue, I love the pullout tag idea on the first one! I hope that the new week turns out much better for you.

Love these cards, Sue! Both are so creative! The pull out tag is brilliant! I'm sorry you had such a difficult week! Hope this one is much better for you! Sending a hug!

I do hope things improve for you quickly Sue, if that is possible.
I love both your cards but the one with the pull out Tag is brilliant in my book.
