Flowers in Silhouette


I don't know how many of you have looked at the single stamps in the back of the Idea Book & Catalog, but this is one of the ones that SU! offers to purchase all by its lonesome.  It's a lovely stamp and I enjoyed using it on this card.  The other stamp (the sentiment) is a Papertrey Ink stamp from the set Mixed Messages.  This is another one of those cards that "looks better in real life" but I think it's still pretty in 2-D.  Hope you like it!!!

All items are SU! unless otherwise noted.

Stamps:  Flowers in Silhouette, Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper:  Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White CS, Raspberry Tart DSP
Ink:  Rose Red classic ink and marker and Kiwi Kiss classic ink
Accessories:  Rose Red brads, Blender Pen, Stampin' Dimensionals


  1. Oooh, very pretty! I love your coloring on the flower! It's so pretty paired with that sweet, simple sentiment! Love it!

  2. Simply beautiful! Love the dimension you created with the DSP layers!

  3. I love the single stamps, and I think I have all of them now. :-)

  4. This is so soft and pretty! I love how you broke the solid background up with layering, great idea.

  5. I love this card....the colors, the sentiment and how you used tone on tone in the middle...hope that made sense. :)

  6. Love how this turned out, Marie! The red is so pretty and striking.

  7. Very pretty! Love how you layered the same paper pattern twice.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
