Pink and Yellow Florals

 The second challenge for Beautiful Blossoms is up and running and it is full
of beautiful florals from the design team making me yearn for Spring to get here!

Here is our pretty mood board for inspiration.
It's all about a pretty mix of yellows and pinks...YUM!!

I used a new, never been used before stamp and stencil set I purchased from
Honey Bee stamps.  I can't wait to make more of these as they were so EASY!!
I think my next ones will be embossed with gold embossing powder to give it more shine!

You stamp the image first then there is a set of five stencils to use
or if you prefer you can also just color it in.
I used the stencils and the placement was the easiest thing ever!
With blending brushes I used all Distress inks:
Spun Sugar~Squeezed Lemonade~Kitsch Flamingo~Mustard Seed~Shabby Shutters
I did use gold SNS embossing powder for the sentiment which is part of the stamp set,
in fact it comes with a LOT of different sentiments.
OH, I forgot to mention, the name of the stamp set is Hello Sweetheart!
I also added some gold gems from Pink Fresh Studio.
I know it makes it harder to mail, but I just can't resist those things!!

To see a lot of floral beauty be sure to pop on over to the 
Beautiful Blossoms challenge blog to see all the pretty inspiration!!

This is so beautiful, Diane. I have just now bought a stencils+ef set to try. Now you telling me there's stamps+stencils? Geez, I've run out of room or I'd be down that rabbit hole, lol. You did a fabulous job with your set. Now, make 40 more to pay for it, hahaha. I shouldn't laugh, you might! You are a prolific cardmaker. Thanks for the breath of Spring! xoxo
