Same Set - Different Look
The Eastern Blooms is one of my favourite stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalogue. I especially like the branch and flower stamp that i have used here. I love how you can use your markers to colour it in. It adds flair to any card or layout and i have used it on so many different things. On the two cards i have shown here i have used different elements to give the cards a different look. On the chocolate chip card i have added some punched out flowers from the three for you punch set (thanks Annette for letting me borrow it!) and i have used my sponge daubers (another favourite item) on the edges of the So Saffron card stock to give it a warm feel.
On the second card i have used some felt fusion flowers, also available in the Summer Mini Catalogue, which are all the rage at the moment. The second card is a case of a card made by Nicki Tibold one of the moderators on a special forum for demonstrators. She put together a tutorial to show us all how to make it (see what the perks of being a demonstrator are). I especially love how you can add a brad to the centre of the felt fusion flowers and it adds a touch of class.
Which card do you like the best?
