Flower Shop and Simply Pressed flowers

I was at "Stamping Fun with Margaret" and I ran across this card. I had kept the image on my computer for a couple of days. I was on the border of whether I liked it or not.  Well, obviously I liked it, there was something about it that made me keep it on my computer for those days.  

As I was looking at it today I decided to just give it a try. It looked simple enough.

So the first thing I did was whip up a few Daffodil Delight flowers from the Simply Pressed molds.  I used the smallest flower in the mold.  I had not used that one yet and was pleased at how well it came out of the mold right after making it.  I didn't have to let it sit like I do with the buttons.  Nothing got distorted on it so I was able to make the three I needed, plus a few more for another day!

The pretty border image came from the "Summer Silhouettes" set.  The image was not long enough for the card so you have to stamp half from the center up and the other half from the center down.  Don't worry if you don't get the ends to meet in the middle, the center flower covers it.  That was stamped in Night of Navy.

Then I stamped the Daffodil Delight flowers using the "Flower Shop" set.  I liked how they looked so I took a 1/4 sheet of card stock and filled it with those flowers in the same color for another project another day.  I thought it looked like it would be a nice background for a future card.

And for the other 3 flowers I stamped them using VersaMark and embossed them using clear embossing powder.  Then I punched them out.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.

The words were done using the Modern Label punch and the Word Window Punch.  And the words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  And lastly the clay flowers were added using a little bit of glue.  I wasn't sure how well they would stick using tape because of the centers of the flower being mostly embossed.  

And that was it.  I did like making this card and after seeing it in person I like it even more!  It's a very quick card to make if you have the clay flowers done up a head of time.  Don't you just love those flower and button molds?  You can make them in any of the Stampin' Up! colors and have them match any of your products.  What I was amazed at the most with the clay is that it really doesn't take that much ink to color it and even when it dries the color stays the same as the wet clay.  What you see is what you get!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
