Floral Frenzy

In the Great Reintegration of Stamps last week, Floral Frenzy from Papertrey was saved from the Get Rid Of box. For the next few days, we'll take a look at some cards I made with it.

Today, we're looking at two similar cards. The first plays off a layout commonly used with flowers, snowflakes, or any other roundish image. Here's one example from my Cards Board on Pinterest.

These colors look so scrumptious! They are mostly Impress Fresh Ink colors (chamomile, mango, pink lemonade, sugar) with a little Mama Elephant thrown in (moonlight). They look so fresh and spring-like and happy.

The two largest daisy images come from Floral Frenzy, but the two smallest ones come from Beautiful Blooms II. Lovely match, actually.

The second version shifts the orientation to landscape and moves the spray of flowers to the center of the card, while keeping the sentiment in the sweet spot of lower right. The color scheme shifts also to pretty blues...calmer and more soothing than the pink-and-yellow combination.

Again with the Impress Fresh Ink (freesia and Capri) with the Mama Elephant moonlight. The Freesia was a bit too dark for me to feel safe stamping over it, even with black, so I raised the sentiment up on a white banner.

Several people have asked about donating cards to Karen's Card Shop at my church. We have a lot of cards in overstock already, but if you have any get-well or sympathy cards, we would really appreciate them. Those two categories sell really well, and we're having a hard time keeping them in stock. We can use A2-standard size cards. I have envelopes and clear bags to put with them. Email me at gsraihala at roadrunner dot com for the address if you are interested.

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

stamps: Papertrey Floral Frenzy, Beautiful Blooms II, Keep It Simple sentiment

  1. You do such a nice job with some of the older PTI sets. I was thinking of getting rid of some of mine because they seemed kind of out of date and I was out of ideas. You are able to put a new spin on them and make them look fresh.

  2. Your second card makes me feel like I'm looking directly down at a gorgeous bouquet of blue flowers! Perfect placement!
