Fifth ave concord v  Flower festival  - blushing 

If you like flowers, you'll LOVE the cards we are creating this month!  There are so many beautiful flower stamp sets retiring, so I wanted to enjoy them one last time!  We'll be making the Fifth Avenue Floral and Flower Fest (choose your favorite color combo) cards shown above, another card that I'm still working on, plus the pretty Awash With Flowers card I'm featuring today…

Awash with flowers - pear two cool

CASEd from Patricia Giesbrecht.

These two cool cards feature the retiring Awash With Flowers stamps, on a retiring Pear Pizzazz card base, and a little bit of the retiring Cheerful Treat Designer Series Paper (hostess selection).  I didn't realize how much I enjoyed this set until I found out it was retiring.  So sad.

Awash with flowers - pear v  

I stamped these two-step blooms on Whisper White card stock in Melon Mambo, retiring Peach Parfait, and So Saffron inks, with outline images in Basic Black.  I love how you don't have to worry about getting the two coordinating images lined up, because they don't match exactly anyway!  You can't mess it up!  The stems and leaves are colored with a Pear Pizzazz Marker.

On the second card, I popped up three of the flowers for a more dimensional look.  I finished off the stamping with some flecks of Old Olive ink created with the Color Spritzer Tool and an Old Olive Marker.

The stamped piece is torn and layered on a torn piece of So Saffron.  A small piece of Cheerful Treat DSP lines the bottom along with some of the beautiful (and already retired) Pear Pizzazz Pleated Ribbon.  Sentiment is from the retiring Upsy Daisy set.
