Flowers, Flowers...Everywhere Flowers!

Hello, my stamping friends!  I love flowers and designing cards with them.  I have two cards to share with you today.

First, here it is another Thursday already, which means it's time for another CCEE Stampers' challenge.  I am the August hostess and this week I'm challenging everyone to incorporate glass into their design whether it be a glass image, a cracked glass technique, or actual glass!  You can get all the juicy details and see Shirley's, Joanne's, Cindy's, and Frances's creations on our CCEE Stampers blog

I chose to make a bookmark for my design.  I love these beautiful Aztec Gold Sunflowers by Heartfelt Creations that I bought at the rubber stamping show last weekend!  There are actually three sizes in this stamp set, but I only needed the two smaller ones for this creation.  What's really cool about them is that they match the Blossom 2 Nestabilities!  Woot!


For the glass challenge, I used Vintage Glass Glitter for the center of my flower and around the Memory Glass frame laid over my friend to friend sentiment.  Once the glue dried, I colored the glass with my Sepia Copic marker. Here's a close up view.



The sentiment and weed stamp are by Rubbernecker.  The ribbon is actually made from the same blue and white gingham checked designer paper at the bottom of the bookmark.  I used a checkerboard embossing folder on the Brilliant Blue cardstock.

I'd also like to share with you the fourth card in a set I made for Dolce Stamps and Cards with JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms set.  Dolce Stamps and Cards has been featuring each card on their blog over the last month.  Today's daisy card is the last one in the set and all the details are outlined on their blog.



Here's the entire set I shared with you back in July.


These lovely stamps made for a beautiful gift set and are available at Dolce Stamps and Cards.  If you visit the blog to see my card, you'll see a link to the Dolce Stamps and Cards store at the upper right entitled Shop at Dolce Stamps and Cards.
