Flora Grande Stamping

Let's just say that my current favorite stamp set is Flora Grande 2 from Heartfelt Creations.  I love most all of their stuff, and I've gotten a LOT of mileage out of my 2 newest purchases (from the Allentown Rubber Stamp Convention earlier this year) --- the..... 1. Flora Grande 2 and 2. Posy Patch Flowers. 
Sharing three cards today that I used the flora grande set on - love the size and shape of this flower.
For card #1 I used these supplies:
  • Stamps
    • Flora Grande 2 (Heartfelt Creations)
    • Martha Stewart leaf stamp
  • Punches
    • Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars) 
    • Scalloped Daisy Border Punch (Fiskars)
    • Small Butterfly Punch
  • Cuttlebug Items
    • Butterfly Die (Provo Craft)
    • Butterfly Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
    • Swirls Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
    • Textile Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
  • Inks
    • Versa Mark
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Pink/Green Chalks
  • Pink Glitter
  • Pink/White Cardstock
 For this card I stamped my flower image on vellum, colored the back with markers, and cut it out --- lots of dimension to this as the petals curl and twist about. 
For card #2 I used these supplies:
  • Stamps
    • Flora Grande 2 (Heartfelt Creations)
    • Martha Stewart leaf stamp
  • Punches
    • Small Butterfly punch
    • Martha Stewart corner punch: Embroidered
    • Alphabet Punches
  • Cuttlebug Items
    • Kassie's Brocade embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Silver Embossing Powder
  • Ultra Fine Silver Glitter
  • Crayola Markers
  • Silver/Yellow/White Cardstock
 One last card using that flower stamp set --- a personalized wedding card.

    • Flora Grande 2 (Heartfelt Creations)
    • Martha Stewart leaf stamp
    • Love border stamps
  • Punches
    • Small Butterfly punch
    • Martha Stewart corner punch: Embroidered
    • Alphabet Punches
  •  Inks

    • Blue Ink (for border stamps)

Love the dimension the beads add to the flower -- almost looks real!

They're beautiful! You're tempting me to buy those stamps, too. :)

I love the microbeads in the center of the blue flower. It's a great touch!
