Floral Cards

I love Uniko's Floral Vine stamp set, so wanted to use it for the Flowers Challenge.  I've had this design in mind for awhile, but changed it into a slimline for the challenge twist. 
I used my MISTI to stamp the image 6 times & gold heat embossed on Bristol.  I colored with multiple Zigs & didn't use any water.  I stamped the sentiment from the set, splattered with gold & added gold sequins.  Really happy with how this turned out.
I saved up gift certificates & recently got PTI Into the Blooms II & Border Bling: Skinny Diagonals Frame.  One of my college roommates is recovering from a serious illness & I wanted to let her know I'm thinking of her. 
Color Hues Yellow & Pink and PTI The Great Cover-Up touch of gold inspired my card.  The blooms were die cut from a paper pack with 2-3 shades of each color.  I inked the pink edges with Berry Sorbet & the yellow with Bright Buttercup.  The leaves were die cut from vellum & the centers were covered in yellow & pink Stickles.  
The frame was die cut from PTI adhesive gold metallic cardstock & was attached to a panel of Vintage Cream which was attached with fun foam to a Vintage Cream card.  The sentiment is from PTI Effortless Beauties.  I'm also entering The Snippets Playground (pink center & frame were cut from scraps), Time Out & WAW.


Thought you might like to see another floral card I made last month.  This one was for the ITP PTI Challenge to use pigment type inks.  
I was inspired by Melody's card with stamping on Border Bling: Tin Stitched, so that's what I did.  Bold Blooms images were stamped on Fresh Linen using Distress Oxide inks.  The sentiment is PTI Thick & Thin: Hello, the splatters are white gauche & the pearls are KaiserCraft Chino.  I tend to like cool colors, but really love how this turned out.  Maybe the summer heat is getting to me!
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  17. Gosh, what gorgeous cards Greta - I love each one. The Uniko stamp set is a keeper isn't it and I love how you used it on a slim card. Adore your snippets card too - very pretty flowers and really love the gold frame. Great to see you in the Playground! Stay safe. I went to fill my car with gas today and thankfully opted to pay at the pump. The little shop/pay place was full of folk not wearing masks. Would have been like walking into a petri dish!

    Hugs
