Floral Orchid & Turtles2Love

Have you seen the new release over at The {Stamps} of Life?  If not, hop on over there and check out the Turtle2love-how cute is it??

For my first card, can you tell what stamp I used from the new set?  When I first saw this set I imagined the shells would make some great leaves.  So I stamped the solid shell and the turtle and cut it out to create the leaves on this orchid.  The orchid background paper is embossed with the Sizzix flowers embossing folder.

This card uses the MTMEPPS60 Sketch which I came across on someone else's blog and saved-like this sketch a lot!
Card Details:
Stamps: petals are using the shell in Turtle2Love and Flower2Doodle from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Basic Black, Whisper White
Embellishments: Sizzix Textured Embossing Folder (Flowers), rhinestone brad, dimensionals

Oh how I love this sketch from Retro Sketches, think I've used it about 10 times already.   I love that you can use any shape or flower or animal to make this sketch work.

Stamps: Turtle2Love from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Gable Green, Basic Black, Whisper White, Cool Carribean

For this last card I went with a favorite color combination of mine, artichoke and hot pink, just love the contrast between the two colors.  I also used another sketch favorite on this one, the FTL190.

So many wonderful patterns to use on the turtles and love that I can create some backgrounds with the baby turtles.

I saw this set yesterday and thought how sweet is that. Your cards are genius - love when you can use one stamp for a totally different purpose.
