Simple Tone on Tone Fabulous Florets

Fabulous Florets Card


I have been wanting to make this card since the Fabulous Florets stamp set appeared on my doorstep. Unfortunately, after weeks of looking I had to finally accept the fact that my VersaMarker had walked away and order a replacement.

So, here now is the card that has been swimming in my head waiting to be made. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I hope you think it was worth the wait.

This was a very simple card to make and a few embellishments really made a difference. 

I stamped the two different flowers from the Fabulous Florets stamp set (W123025, C123027) onto Crumb Cake cardstock (120953) with Whisper White Craft ink (101731). Next, I heat embossed the stamped images with White embossing powder (109132) before colouring them in the VersaMarker (100901).

The ‘Thank You" from the Curly Cute stamp set (W117014, C120510) was stamped with Real Red Craft ink (119178 Craft Spots). I added Real Red Glimmer Brads (121006) to the center of each of the large flowers and finished the card by adding Stampin’ dimensionals (104430) between the card and the layered piece.

A quick and easy card to get the weekend stamping started!

    This is just beautiful Darlene. I love how you have coloured in the flowers with Versamark. A great idea. I may just have to give it a try.

    What an exquisite card! I love what you have done here! I wonder how it would look using bleach instead of the versamarker? So lovely!

    I bet bleach would look great. It would be more faded than the versamarker but still pretty.
