Today’s cards features the stamp set, Pretty Perennials and a little sneak peek of one of the new In Colors, Polished Pink.  This color will be available on May 4th when the new Annual Catalog goes live! I also made the card in Melon Mambo so you can compare the colors but for this first card I used Polished Pink. 



First, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink and I used the Stamparatus because it allows you to stamp in the same place multiple times for a nice bold image. If you’ve never heard of a Stamparatus and would like to learn more, please check out this video.

The large flower images were stamped in Polished Pink ink and then I used Bermuda Bay ink for the smaller flowers. I used Memento ink for the center of all the flowers 


Pretty Perennials


I adhered the stamped piece to Basic Black cardstock and then adhered that to a base of Polished Pink. For this next card, I stamped the large flowers in Melon Mambo ink and stamped the smaller flowers in Daffodil ink.  I used Basic Black cardstock, as I did on the card above, and adhered it to a Melon Mambo card base. 




Imagine all the possibilities with this stamp set!
