Just popping by with a couple of cards I made with the beautiful Flower Shop stamps and co-ordinating Pansy punch.


The vase was cut out with a circle punch, and the top sliced off!

The background was created with the acrylic block technique - just ink up the blocks, spritz lightly with water, then stamp onto cardstock. Very quick and easy!

There are 6 different flower designs in this set and the 
co-ordinating punch creates a versatile combination.  
This is just one of my favourites from the new 2013/14 Catalogue.

Two great cards Sylvia. Love how the flowers on the first one pop over the edge and the acrylic block method on the second. Lovely.

I love that block stamp technique. I did that technique this month to give to my nephew for his bday. I think he will like it. And your vase from a circle punch really looks great. Both your CAS cards are quite lovely. TFS...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today with your sweet comment. Much appreciated.
Hugs...Leanne

The same flower stamp, yet such totally different designs! I love posts like these, I find it so inspirational to see the variety one can achieve using the same materials. Both your cards are so elegant!
