Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1

Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1

Hey!

Well, I don’t know how Sunday evening happened! This weekend has gone crazy quick and these little beans are keeping me on the go, as well as all the household chores which are A LOT easier to accomplish when hubby is home to keep them occupied.

I was hoping to have more to share with you today, to make up for missing Friday & Saturday, but I have just the two cards using this weeks Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1.

Don’t forget that tonight is the last night to get this set at 15% off HERE, it will revert back to normal price tomorrow as I will have a new Stamp Of The Week.

Anyway, onto my cards…

SOTW11b

My first card is super CAS and inspired by the new sketch seen HERE and below over at CAS – Colours & Sketches. I also used the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below.

My card was really quick to make, the longest part was fussy cutting out the flowers! The Melon Mambo one was adhered to the card using double sided tape & the Pink Pirouette one using foam adhesive.

SOTW11c

My next card was inspired by the current Uniko Challenge HERE, which is all about using Geometrics. I had planned on sharing this card on Friday but it didn’t happen unfortunately, but it did today…

SOTW11

I started out by stamping my sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #6 and then began stamping the larger squares from Background Builders: Squared in Melon Mambo. Before stamping the Real Red small outline squares I first over stamped the large squares with the outline flower from Flower Power #1 in black ink.

The layout and placement of the squares was random, though I tried to keep in mind the balance and triangle of placing my elements. The colours of my card are inspired by the current Color Throwdown challenge colours seen HERE and below.

I’ll be sharing more ideas this week in how to add simple geometrics to your cards & creations and of course the new Stamp Of The Week, another oldie but a goodie stamp set with tons of possibilities, especially with Christmas fast approaching. I am always open for requests if there is a stamp set you would like me to use as Stamp Of The Week, either email me or leave me a comment.

Ok, that’s all from me today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by today & I hope you have enjoyed this weeks Stamp Of The Week.

    The pretty pink flowers on the first card are a lovely, feminine take on our CC&S sketch! Thanks so much for joining in our challenge this week!
    I also like the way the flowers are scattered among the squares on the second card.
