I admit I'm pretty bad about cleaning up after I stamp; I usually push my scraps and extras into a pile and deal with it at some later time. It was from those scraps that this card was born. I came across the negative part from some die cut flowers. They were made for embellishment on another project, but before tossing them, I decided to use them as a stencil and create a floral thank you card.
I chose some pastel ink colors and simply sponged the flowers in a random pattern. I used the
Deco Thank You Greeting from DRS Designs in the corner, and embellished a few of the centers with some gems.
It was so easy and fun! I think I may keep these and any other scraps in a little baggie for future stencil projects.
Here's another graduation card I made using the A New Beginning Greeting. Choosing to play off the word time in the sentiment, I dry embossed the background using a clock themed folder, and added 3 of the Brush Mortarboards that were stamped and fussy cut.
After it was assembled, the greeting looked a bit sparse, so I inked up one of the tiny grad caps from the Graduation Background stamp and added it to the corner.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
