I never use this set. I bought it because 11Valerie11 over at SCS made me fall in love with it, but for some reason I never grab it. I wanted to do some cards with flowers for the Demonstratable Cards Challenge and my new secret sister mentioned that this is her favorite set so it seemed like a perfect time to pull it out.
For each card I stamped the same focal image of the trio of flowers in Groovy Guava and used a Mellow Moss marker for the stem. Then I did the the detail lines in Ruby Red. I did not want the stem detail line, so I used a Ruby Red marker to ink up only the blossom. I distressed all the edges in all of the cards as well.
On this first card I used a mat pack to pierce some holes in the top corners of the Guava card stock and then sponged the edges with Guava ink. I also sponged the edges of the focal image with Moss ink. The using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped the word Happiness from the Warm Words set in Ruby Red ink. I was thinking later that it would be cool to emboss all the Ruby Red accents, but wanted to keep this one simple for an upcoming workshop.
For the second card I added a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the blossoms using my two way glue. I also added some Mellow Moss grosgrain ribbon. I used my word window punch to make the "special friend" tag. I attached it to the ribbon using some gold wire.
For the final card I put glitter on the blossoms as well. I used the mat pack again to pierce the corners. It is hard to see in the photo but I used Versamark ink and stamped the detail lines for this flower on the bottom half of the Guava card stock.I also used some Moss grosgrain. I had planned on just one strip but it looked unbalanced so I added another one. I was not going to put a sentiment on this one, but when I was done it looked naked. So I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the "from the heart" sentiment from the Holidays & Wishes set.
