GREENHOUSE GARDEN

This is one of my favourite stamp sets, probably because I love flowers and gardens. It's a two-step set, which means you stamp the first full design in a lighter colour, and then the second detail design in a darker colour:
The largest flowers are stamped in the retired "Summer Sun" with the second stamp showing the lines and centre of the flower stamped in Old Olive. The same with the pink flowers - the base flower is stamped in Pretty in Pink while the detailed second stamp is done with Regal Rose. The blue flowers use Tempting Turquoise and the retired Brilliant Blue, and finally the purple flowers use the retired Lovely Lilac and Old Olive. The ribbon is 1/4" Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain.

This second card uses the same set but has a different design:
The pink background on this card is made by rubbing the Pretty in Pink Ink pad over the diamond pattern of the Backgrounds 1 Texture Plate, and then running it through the Big Shot with a sheet of Pretty in Pink card stock.

Hope you like them!
