Yep, I love it when I have a new set of stamps to release and today is that day!!! This is truly one of my favorites, it’s called A Flower for your Thoughts. Its another set that has mix and match mojo so I made a little boxed set of cards to show you how easy it is to switch out the sentiments and the flowers for many, many unique cards out of the same set. You can pop over and see the full set on the JustRite Papercraft website and you can snatch all the Pinterest Pins HERE :-) So first of all, the flowers are broken out as separate stamps so that you can color them separately with two step stamping. There are so many palettes you can apply – I went with crisp primary colors today, but I can see doing powder pink for a girl, or russet tones for fall flowers and foliage and don’t forget embossing in white or gold for a totally elegant look.

I loved that garden lattice look of Spellbinders A2 Diamond Effects and decided to use it as the backdrop for each card. Diamond Effects makes the card base when assembled as shown in this Hinge Video. Stamping is done on a 2-5/8″ x 3-7/8″ panel, embellished with Heirloom Flourish One and attached to the card base with foam tape. I used a Krylon Gold pin to add a rim around all the edges. That’s it for the cards! Every year I have a ‘go to’ set that I can make quick cards from and that I can make a gift set of cards from – yep, this’ll do. Here are the cards in the set:
Oh, and one more thing . . . for the next three days that set is on SALE @ 25% off. Lot of other goodies on sale too – definitely worth a look!
