Flowers for a Friend Swap @ SCS

theme for this swap is flowers...any occasion...but had to have flowers...easy right?....NOT!...i guess i am not a flower kinda girl....had to get some ideas from the SU Galleries @ SCS...such inspiration...

Paper: rose red..regal rose..whisper white..girl diamonds dsp
Ink: rose red..regal rose
Stamp Set: looks like spring..fundamental phrases
Accessories: lg & med circle saffron button..rose ric-rac..dimensionals
so the first one i used the rock-n-roll technique on the flower...hadn't done that in ages...and this stamp is perfect for it...

Paper: pretty in pirouette
Ink: pretty in pink
Stamp Set: sage advice
Accessories: cb..ef..lg & med oval & lt pink paper flowers..white brad..dimensionals
the second card i had trouble with...matching up the paper flowers...was going with purple and lavender...changed my mind and went with pink shades...

p.s. my back injury is not as serious as first suspected...but what a pain (literally) when stamping...good thing i got "in the zone" for awhile


  1. Lovely cards! I like the flower stamped slightly off the mat in the first one!

  2. What lovely cards. Wonderful colors.

  3. I am a fan of the flower being off centered too! Like the pink combination too! Pretty cards!

  4. Pretty swap cards Kari. I really like your Cuttlebug embossing folder.

  5. Oooh...both these cards are beautiful - I'm LOVING the second one!

  6. Ooooh, I'm loving all of the pretty pink! The flower looks so cool off-centered on the first card and the clean design of the second card is so gorgeous. That embossing folder is on my wish list. :)

  7. Kari, I just became a follower! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog this past weekend. We share two loves: chocolate and stamping! LOL
