We Have Both Kinds of Flowers: Horizontal AND Vertical

Altenew's Extra Special stamp set includes a lovely layered flower...perfect for my MISTI and for one-layer cards in a horizontal or vertical orientation.

Now, the MISTI was given to me by Tina S., who lives in my small town and works in our school district and treats my kids right. She's a wonderful person, generous and kind. As you can see on both of today's cards, the MISTI is extremely helpful with layered stamping, and we can thank Tina for that.

Cheerful yellow with bling for flower centers and as accents...lovely thank you! I like how the sentiment's font mimics the flow of the black outline.

Blissful blue and a bit of black Stickles for flower centers...sister blessings!

The blue and black sentiment enhance the card's unity.

Playing around with colors for layered stamp sets highlights how a simple color change can completely alter the atmosphere of a card. Bright, happy energy or serene beauty...either way, it works!
