Playing with Flower Stamps

As you can tell, I love the flower image from Earth Flowers. I made a card for the Wee Memories Challenge (see Get Sticky). The theme is to use use stickers, rub-ons,etc. Anything that is 'sticky'. Please check out the challenge as you can win a pack of SRM Stickers(!!!). Here's my little card to join the fun and hopefully to get you inspired. The lady bug and sentiment (over  the ribbons ) are both SRM Stickers! FUN stuff, huh?

"In case" you can't get enough of  flower image. Here's another card that I made for the Hero Arts Scramble challenge. I made it within half hour! My latest stamp Silhouette Burst is so fun to stamp.
Scramble challenge
The challenge was to use Distress Inks. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamp called Paris Design. All inks are from Tim Holtz Distress Inks --Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Honey Mustard, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo. Now I need to play with some other kinds of stamps...hm...what's your latest favorite? If you have any, do share! I 'd love to hear them!

OH MY! That first card makes me think back to when I would teach 4th grade--we would do a story about a little insect called Eglin. LOVED it! And Eglin would get swept away by the wind--just like this card!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

But I have to say--that second card-- oh my oh my oh MY! I love the colors--those flowers are stamped beautifully and the flower embellies are perfect:) LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!
