Today I'm sharing cards created with the Wildflower Bouquet Builder set. This is a great spring floral set with lots of possibilities!  And you truly don't have to build. In fact, I didn't build at all.  My first card uses the large bouquet image from the set.  

I used my Original MISTI to stamp the image unto a piece of Fabriano Artistico Cold Press watercolor paper. I added some vibrant color with Daniel Smith watercolors. When dry, I trimmed the panel to 3.5" x 4.75", then added the two-part greeting.

I used the Modern Plaid background stamp in my MISTI to stamp my white card base with Beach Blondie ink. I cut a blue mat with a 1/16th border,  and assembled my card.



I also made a few simple notecards, stamping the single floral image multiple times in varying directions unto panels of Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover paper. So I could color with Copic Markers. I did some quick sketchy coloring to create some Echinacea blooms, flicking color from each end of the petals, leaving a bit of white showing through as highlight.


A second note card is very similar but I used my Copics this time to color them as Black-eyed Susans.  There are lots of options with this stamp!


Each panel was added to a horizontal top-fold card base for super simple cards.

Thanks for stopping by today. I do hope you enjoy today's hop and find lots of Spring inspiration. Don't forget to comment to be entered to win prizes! Your next stop on the hop should be Vera's blog, but I've added the list of all participants below. Have fun!

  3. Hi Chris! First I LOVE your cards! They are all just perfect! Then also as I was reading your post I loved that I saw you used Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover paper. About a month or so ago I started using it too because my husband bought a ream of it for printing some presentations and I wondered how it would work with my alcohol markers and surprisingly....I loved it! Again, I just love your cards.

  13. Such pretty cards. I'm admiring the way you left white space as a highlight on the petals. I need to try that - it's too easy for me to just color the whole thing.
