Beautiful Blooms Card Set

Hi! Happy Saturday to you! I have a long post today, tons of pictures! I hope you make it to the bottom, LOL! This is a card set I put together for my mom. My mom loves my cards, thats the best thing about Moms- they always love what you do. Anyway my mom has birthday coming up really quick so I have been working on this little set for her. I was first inspired by this card by Debbie Olson. I really loved how she layered the stamps from Beautiful Blooms 2 by Papertrey Ink. I did the blue one first, sort of following Debbie's color scheme but leaving out the green. I liked it so much I thought a rainbow of colors would be awesome. It took awhile to do, especially with all the stamp cleaning in between!
Here is the orange schemed card. I used PTI's orange zest, summer sunrise, and lemon tart. The floral panel is mounted on an orange zest base. I added some coordinating grosgrain. The big flower embellie is cut with the PTI dies and held together with foam tape. I added a lemon tart button and some PTI cream twine. I outlined the edge with coordinating copic marker.
The Pink version is exactly the same except I used raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, and sweet blush. The color looks a little off on my monitor... its not purpleish.
The purple version uses scarlet jewel, plum pudding, and Dew Drops pearlescent purple. Scarlet jewel ribbon and plum pudding button.
The blue version that started it all uses Spring Rain, aqua mist, and Hawaiian shores. Hawaiian shores ribbon and aqua mist button.
I packaged it up in this timeless template designed by Lauren Meader for PTI. I think its called keeping tabs. It uses spring rain, spring moss, Hawaiian shores, and aqua mist.
And here they are all together with their coordinating envelopes. I used the same color scheme on the envies. I also used the Fillable Frame 1 to stamp the place to put the address. The envies are my favorite part I think. Did you make it to the bottom! Yay, for getting all the way here. As always thanks for stopping by!
