Some Summer Flowers!

Hello … bonjour … and bon dimanche!  It’s not often that I get to be here with something other than DT cards … but as today happens to be one of those days, I’m sharing a duo of summery, floral cards .  Here’s the first …

An almost one layer card … this bouquet of stylised blooms was made using separate stem and flower centre images from Concord & 9th‘s Wildflower set.  The main sentiment is also from C9 (Sophisticated Script) … and the secondary one is from Simon.  I edged the top and bottom of the card with some striped washi … and added a black dot to each of the flower heads.  I was going for a mimosa kind of look (in an abstract sort of a way) … how did I do?

My second card is a bright and sunny one … you may need sunglasses …

This is an image I stamped at the Lake House … think it’s Bev‘s and it might be Studio Calico (though I’m not certain) … isn’t it just charming?  It’s stamped onto an MFT wonky stitched panel, was coloured with alcohol markers, had black pearls added to the flower centres … and was joined by a WPlus9 sentiment surrounded by a few miniscule black pearls.  The finished panel was mounted flat onto a card base that had been edged with Distress Ink.

** My ‘mimosa’ are going to be blooming at …

    I must confess I had to Google mimosa flowers because I had never heard of them. You did a wonderful job creating them on paper, Anita, and they’re darling. Your yellows flowers are lovely too.

    The stamping on the first card is so pretty and the mimosa’s are beautiful. The washi tape top and bottom finishes it off wonderfully x. Such a happy second card and the stamped flower is striking and so very pretty. Love both of your wonderful cards Anita x.

    What a delightful and cheery pair of floral cards Anita! The large happy sentiment on the first one says it all about the gorgeous mimosa like flowers, and the sunny colours on the second card will bring a big smile to the lucky recipient.
    Thanks for sharing with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

    Oh they’re both so very pretty. The little pink polka dot flowers scattered across the first card are just gorgeous and the second yellow card is so crisp and CAS. Thanks so much for playing at Uniko, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

    Great to see you playing just for fun, Anita! I love your first card and now have a craving for a mimosa! As for your pretty little second card, I think we all used Bevie’s awesome stamp at the retreat. You’ve made a sweet CASlicious card with it; I love the gray and yellow!! LYAMYMAED!! Hugs, Darnell
