Floral Bouquet

Hello -

Lately, I've been making multiple cards with the same main image.  I figure at 3 bucks a card I need to make at least 5 maybe 6 cards for each $15.00 stamp set to make it a cost effective purchase.  With flower stamps that is an easy task - they can be colored in many colors.  Especially non-specific flowers like these beauties in Avery Elle's Flower Bouquet. They are clustered like a hydrangea, but have 5 petals.  I made two cards using the non-main images in this post.

Tuesday, I used the main image in this post.

Today, I am sharing 2 cards with classic colors.  The flowers were heat embossed on bristol then colored with Zig CCRBT markers. The image was die cut and mounted on prepared card panels. The pink used another cover die from Avery Elle, the blue uses a die from Little Inkers.  Sentiments were from Stamping Up and PTI.

 Thursday, I'll have this set again with some unusual colors.

Thanks much for stopping by.

It's amazing how different these look Cat even though it's the same stamp set! I should be doing the same thing to maximize my stamps and dies, it's a great way to get the mojo going I think. Gorgeous cards, Cathy x

I'm loving that floral image & how you've colored it, Cat! Both versions are lovely, but you won't be surprised that I'm especially drawn to the pink one!

They're both lovely, Cat ... clever composition to make each look so different from the other. I'm rather taken with those delicious blue hues particularly! Hugs, Anita :)
