Another Abstract Impressions card

As promised, I created another card using the Abstract Impressions bundle.  This time I used the three stamps to create the Daffodil Delight roses.  It’s so easy to stamp these roses.  Just line up the arrows at the top and stamp using the lightest color first using the stamp with least detail as the base then stamp with a darker ink and use the darkest color to stamp with the most detailed stamp.  I inked up my stamp then stamped off twice before stamping, followed by inking the second stamp and stamping off once before stamping.  The last stamp I inked and stamped full strength.  I used the two-stamp method for creating the leaves.  I fussy cut the roses and the leaves and used the dies from the bundle to die cut the detailed floral background the five petaled flowers on the greeting.  The sentiment is from the retired Rose Wonder stamp set then die cut using the Pretty Label punch.  I embellished with a butterfly stamped with the retired Papillon  Potpourri stamp set then colored with markers and die cut using the retired Bitty Butterfly punch.  For extra sparkle I embellished with basic rhinestones and colored the roses, butterfly and leaves with Clear Wink of Stella.

With Sympathy with Flourishing Phrases

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I needed a sympathy card and wanted some calming colors.  I selected Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Fresh Fig.  I love how these colors go together so well.  I also used the Flourish thinlits to create the die cut and colored parts of it with the Wink of Stella Gold.  For embellishments I used retired Venetian Crochet Trim and basic rhinestones.  This card came together very easily.
