Friendly Flowers in a few stolen minutes
I just stole away a few minutes from my much too busy agenda to stamp a quick card. I received these wonderful flower stamps (Autumn Leaves, Rhonna Farrer collection) recently from my dear blogging friend Sankari and couldn't wait any longer to use them.
Because I only had a very few minutes, I decided for a back-to-basic card and stamped the flowers with brown Memento ink randomly on some pink cardstock. Then I stamped the flower twine with Versamark onto brown cardstock and embossed it with "strawberries & cream" embossing powder, also the sentiment (Wordsworth Stamps). The sentiment was mounted onto a scallop square punchout (Marvy Uchida punch) which I sponged a little bit with Chocolate Brilliance ink (I used Brilliance ink to sponge because the Memento ink pads stamp GREAT, much more detailed than Brilliance, but are just unusable to sponge because they are too stiff for that) and mounted onto the card with dimensionals. I added a few pink rhinestones.
Sankari, I had sooooo much fun with these stamps! I'm sure they'll become some of my favorites! Thank you again so much! For sure, these were the most funny fifteen minutes I had during the whole week!!! Yeah, how do you say - born to stamp, forced to work...
