Secret Garden

I love flowers, don't you?  I have much better success stamping them than growing them, so unless they are self-sufficient, most flowers don't survive long with me.

So I always love it when Stampin' Up! comes out with new flower stamp sets.  And the latest one - Secret Garden - also has a coordinating set of Framelits!  So those of you who don't like to "fussy cut" can have your flowers and leaves cut out perfectly.  This is such a gorgeous stamp set!

I made this first card for a swap.  The flowers were stamped on Perfect Plum card stock with Craft Whisper White ink and White emboss powder.  Then I took a sponge dauber and some Elegant Eggplant  ink and added some darker color to the center and outside petals.  The flowers were then sprayed with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol.  The sentiment is a single stamp called Beautiful Birthday

The next couple of cards were ones that my friends showed me.  I don't know who stamped these, so if you recognize your card, please let me know so I can give you proper credit.

Until we start seeing this in Michigan, you can at least stamp some beautiful flowers of your own!
