branches4flower Release

Hope you don't mind another post of multiple creations?  I love this new set from The {Stamps}of Life called Branches4Flowers . There are a variety of branches & flowers to this set, but I love the different fonts used for the sentiments the most.  I always love having sentiments on hand to mix with different images.

This first card was one of the favorites I made, it was just clean & simple and my bow actually turned out how I always set out to tie them :-)  I used the FTL123 sketch and the CR84FN34 color challenge for this card, but didn't get them posted in time.

Card details:
Cardstock: Paint the Town Pink, Princess Pink, Kraft Like a Rockstar and So Saffron
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown and Paint the Town Pink
Embellishments: Paint the Town Pink ribbon and pearls
I'm very excited as this card was featured over on Stephanie's blog video for the monthly release. If you haven't ever seen one of Stephanie's videos, she's a hoot and shares a lot of ideas for the new sets here.
I used the branches in this set to create grass for the dragonfly to fly around in.  I paper pieced the wings and scribbled a border on.

Card details:
Cardstock: Coral Necklace, A Clean Slate, Basic Grey Kioshi
Inks: Sage Shadow, Little Black Dress
Embellishments: black marker

I'm not sure I'll be able to give this one away...not sure why but I love how it turned out.  I adore these colors together and these little ring of flowers are darling.

Card details:
Cardstock: Dare to be a Diva Red, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, October Afternoon Fly a Kite
Inks: Dare to be a Diva Red, Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy, Golden Tiara
Embellishments: brads from SU!, Spellbinders Nestabilities labels eighteen, Amuse creative candy twinkle stickers

And last but not least, this was actually the first card I made with this set.  I thought it would look pretty cool as stems for flowers.  Instead of using the flowers in the set, I wanted something that would be larger and really stand out so I decided to roll some flowers instead.  I added some Viva Pearl Pens in the middle of the flowers.
Card details:
Cardstock: Creamsicle Cardigan, Baja Breeze, Brown Leather Satchel, Very Vanilla, Echo Park Life is Good (small strip at bottom of card)
Inks: Baja Breeze, Brown Leather Satchel, Certainly Celery
Embellishments: Viva Pearl Pen, Rolled Die from My Favorite Things

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my cards using the branches4flowers set which are available to club members now and will be available to all tomorrow.
