Flashy Florals

The set I used for today's cards is called "Flashy Florals" by Stampin' Up! I'm pretty sure I hadn't used it before. I bought lots of my SU sets from my demonstrator after they were retired. This set consists of eight stamps.

The rose was stamped with two different stamps. I started by stamping one rose on the cardstock. Then I masked off the flower and stamped the leaves. I stamped the flower twice more on scraps and cut them out. I glued one directly on the cardstock with the first flower and mounted the other on on foam squares. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I cut it into two pieces - it came as one line.

This card uses the remaining five stamps from the set. I really wasn't even sure what all the stamps were "supposed" to be, so I just winged it. LOL! I stamped the flowers in a lavender color. Then I used the three circles to stamp in the center with dark purple. Then I added the little "leaves" with a light green and drew the stems. I matted with matching purple. I stamped the background with the remaining two stamps. The sentiment is again from Papertrey Ink. I mounted the image and sentiment on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Beautiful cards-I especially like the one with purple flowers as I'm partial to shades of purple.

I like the purple one too! I am very excited to get together with you, Lynette, and share our talents!

You made quick work of this set with your two pretty cards! I'm not familiar with this one. I was all ready to start on my next set, finally, when I got distracted by another project. I need to focus more.
