Veranda Cards

Playing with some new and old stamps as well as the Veranda papers. I really like these papers, the colors are so calm and pretty.

The first card was inspired from the Spring Idea Book page 30. There are 2 cards shown on this page featuring the Creative Basics Veranda Collection. They are some of my favorite cards in the new book. I decided to combine the two together to create a sweet and clever card. It uses the stamps Fringed Phrases and Love You Forever.

This card uses some older stamps. One of them is my favorite flower stamps called Simple Blossoms. I love this set because it contains a base image and outline image of a few different flowers. I rock & rolled the base image in the creme brulee, garden green and juniper colors then stamped it. I then used juniper ink to stamp the outline image over the base. It gave the flower more color and makes it really come to life. The other stamps used were Fringed Phrases and the vase is from With Love.
