For my first card I used the beautiful new Just For You stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Gradient Stripes stamp set. I stamped the stripes using the MISTI stamping tool blending green and aqua inks. I then splattered some of the same colors of ink mixed with a little water. I stamped the flowers and leaves also using the MISTI stamping tool to line them up, then I cut them out with the coordinating dies, and adhered them to my card with foam tape.
I cut the You sentiment out of white card stock twice, layered them together and adhered it with liquid glue. I heat embossed the Just for part of the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock, cut it out, and added it with foam tape.
For my next card, I used the gorgeous new Strength Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. I also used the Gradient Stripe stamp set for the background, but this time I stamped it in one direction, then turned my card and stamped it again across it. I stamped the flowers and leaves using the MISTI, cut them out with the coordinating dies, and adhered them to my card with foam tape.
The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock, cut out and adhered with foam tape. I also speckled the whole card with a little bit of white ink when I was done.
For this card, I used an adorable new stamp set called Folksy Florals. I stamped the flowers using the MISTI in pretty pastel colors then stamped the little dots and details with some darker shades. I added lots of little white dots for detail with some white acrylic paint.
Again the background was done with the Gradient Stripe stamp set and I splattered some of the same color ink as well. I stamped the sentiment with black and a matching blue, then adhered the flowers with foam tape.
