This amazing flower cart. It’s more than meets the eye- create a whole scene like some of our Creative Team Members did, or use pieces of it for a more clean and simple look like I did on YouTube Live today!

Here are some from the CT to feast your eyes on!

Pretty amazing cards, ammiright?

Here's mine…hope you enjoy!

I die cut the flowers first, then stamped the images on the die cuts. (You certainly can do it the other way around!) Then colored in the flowers with ink pads and a blender pen. I gave a light wash of color first, then “stippled” by gently bouncing my blender pen on the images, from the same pads. The stippled effect gave depth and dimension to the flowers.

Stamp a few pails, add the mum bouquets with dimensional adhesive to make them pop off the page and stamp the greeting under for a great focal point.

I cut the main stamped piece down to 5-1/2 x 3-3/4, added the Suede Shoes striped paper from Cake and Confetti behind it (cut to 5-1/2 x 4) and layered that on my card base.

Whether you create an entire scene from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set, or use a few simple pieces to make a simple(r) card, you have a winner!
