Summer Blossoms

This card was created using this weeks color challenge at SCS.  I love the stong vibrant combination of eggplant, olive and teal.  I used one of the latest releases from Flourishes, Summer Blossoms, to create the card.  On a piece of olive cardstock  I stamped the stem images in olive ink in each corner.  The main panel was stamped with olive for the stems and teal for the flowers.  A blending pen was used to color the flowers.  All images can be found on the Summer Blossoms set – a photo of the entire set is shown at the end of this post.


Next, I wanted to so a much softer card.  This one came together so simply!  I stamped and embossed the stems in white on soft sky paper.  “Ete” was stamped in a darker blue, using nestabilites ovals to make the shapes.  These were added a handmade paper – I love the rough edges of the paper and think it works well with this design.  Stamping with white on colored cardstock gives  such a pretty look.  I can see this being done on red for Christmas.    The stem image is from Summer Blossoms and “ete” is from Summer on the Patio.
