Hi all! It's my turn to showcase some cards made with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. These two cards are rejects from a publication call where the challenge was to make a flower from non flower stamps.
My first idea was to use the ribbon from Calm and Gentle.
At first I stamped the ribbon evenly around in a circle, but it didn't look that interesting. So my next idea was to stamp in two layers of petals, alternating the heights. And then using a different color for each layer. Better!
The sentiment from that set makes a stem, and I used one ribbon for a leaf. Finally, I turned the ribbon upside down and just stamped the ends to make some grass. Definitely got a lot of mileage out of that ribbon stamp.
The other idea was to make a flower out of a bomb from Ka-Boom.
Both bomb stamps are used here. the solid one in different shades of red/pink, and the chevron one. Best part is the explosion makes for a nice flower center.
The white border is a set of words from the Truth Is set. A little chunk is taken out of the panel with pinking shears where the ribbon tabs are.
Thanks so much for looking!
