Big & Little Flowers

My Mother-in-law recently got the Big Flowers and Little Flowers sets, so last time we got together for a fun stamping afternoon we tried them out. I thought these sets would be perfect for creating a one sheet wonder. So that's what I did. I used two different color schemes and went to town stamping my own patterned paper.


The first card uses Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa and Soft Sky. I really like these colors together! At the top of the card I used the Spot On jumbo wheel. The flowers work well with the circle and scallop punches. For a little different look to the scallop circle I just punched a hole in the middle of each scallop.


The other color scheme I used was Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate & Soft Sky. For this card I used a sheet of Guava that I had embossed with my upline's Cuttlebug when we were together a while back. I had it in my stash and thought it would work perfect with this set. I also used the So Many Scallops - "so sweet of you" stamp which I inked in Guava and then r'nr in Pomegranate.


These are such cute sets! I had fun using them.

I love both of these! I've been contemplating these sets but I have Big and Little Pieces so I couldn't justify getting them. Great colors and what fun cards!

Great job combining your toys! The scallop punch, the scallop SAB set, and the Cuttlebug folder are all just perfect with Big and Little Flowers. You're giving me ideas! I think I even have all of the supplies.

Also, you've been tagged!

Beautiful cards. Love the embossed background - Bloom Dots is one of my favourite folders to use! The flowers just work so well with it too. Lol Lynn x

I especially like the guava and pomegranate card with the color combo on the center flower. Looks like you used the rock-n-roll technique. Very pretty with these colors.
