A couple of cards

I decided to play with one of my Verve Visual stamp sets, Thankful Blossoms. I love these stamps! (I just got a new order yesterday of the May flower pack and can't wait to play with those:) I chose to use Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet and white for my colors with black accents. It really is fun to utalize your stamps by cutting them out and layering them as I did with the flowers. The top swirly flourish is a new set I got not long ago from Inkadinkando, love the little polka dots in it!

This was a very simple card, but I think it's really pretty. The background paper is K&Co. and the stamps are CHF Shiloutte Blooms I. I used a combo of Tea Dye Distress ink and creamy brown chalk ink. A corner rounder made my bottom scallops.

I am anxiously awaiting some new stamp storage I ordered. They are the Inque Botique Stamp Keepers and I am super excited to get them...I'll let you know I how I like them. I really need to get more organized with my stamps since my collection is beginning to get out of control. LOL This hobby is so addictive!
