Flower Fun

I have a confession to make.

I burned out on flowers.

There. I said it.

It's been a while since any flower stamps made me happy, but flowers often sell well in Karen's Card Shop. My flower stamps felt old and stale to me. On a whim, I bought a couple of floral sets from Simon Says and am feeling flower fun again.

This set (Favorite Flowers from SSS) is incredibly easy to work with because the loose design is very forgiving on the two-step stamping. There's lots of movement in the lines, too, so the images have lots of energy. Fun. Easy. Flowers!

The color combo here came from Pinterest and looks so spring-y and fun.

Random-stamped designs seem to be very popular right now, and I'm happy to see that. If you're stuck figuring them out, take a look at my old post on random stamping here: Tutorial on Random Stamping. It's not a terribly sophisticated tutorial, but there are some good tips!

Happy June to you! I hope you're enjoying the season. We've had storms pass through Monday night just 20 miles north of us. Tornados destroyed homes and businesses, and the clean-up will take a long time. Other areas of the U.S. have been hard-hit by floods and storms as well. My thoughts and prayers for all who have been affected.

Stay safe, listen to the weather service and police, and comply with take-shelter orders.

Mercy, grace, peace, love, and safety,


  1. Oh how CUTE!! LOVE the simple design and your fun colors!!

  2. I love this card and design! I tend to like designs that are suggestive of flowers and leaves more than the designs that are realistic.

    1. Interesting. I really appreciate the beauty of the layered, realistic flowers that are so popular right now, but I'm never quite as satisfied with my results with them as I am with stylized flowers like these. Glad to know I'm not alone!

  3. So happy to see you creating again - happy summer!!! Love this! Great storm advice, as well. Hugs and blessings!

    1. It sure feels good to be stamping again. Hugs and blessings back at you!
