The Flowers are Here

As we impatiently wait for spring we'll have to make do with some beautiful new stamps from Stampendous.  Although these stamps appear to be quite large in size, it is easy to use portions of them on a standard sized card. 

The Dahlia card below (by Claudette), was white embossed on white card stock and coloured with Ranger Adirondack inks in shades of yellow and orange.  The Hydrangea card was embossed on white card and Shimmer sprays were used to colour it in. 

The Peony, below, works well white embossed, and cut out.  The card on the left (by Claudette), has been coloured with metallic H2O's. The card on the right has been white embossed as well and coloured with Teal Zircon Twinkling H20's.  We used the scroll from the set with Adirondack Pool Ink to create a soft background.  The verse stamp is from Impression Obsession.

We'll have to make do with these flowers until the real ones appear, Happy Stamping.
