Flowers for Spring - Petal Potpourri

With the Spring sunshine I've been making lots of flower cards! Oh how lovely all the gardens are looking at the moment!!
This little card is actually a seed packet with matching gift bag that I demonstrated at my Mother/Child class. The girls had the best time stamping flowers and punching them out!

I've used quite a few retired things including the Concord crush card/stock.... do you remember that?? Such a deep purple!! The stamp set is also a retired Stamping Up set but was perfect for this sweet smelling project!
The spiral flower die has helped to create the flowers on the bag, along with some sparkly dazzling diamonds! LOVE! Check out that fun DSP, it's from the School house DSP, just perfect for any occasion!! Talking about school, we are on holidays right now so hopefully I'll be around again soon to show some more crafting goodies!!

Flowers for Spring {in-colours 2015/16}

Isn't a new season a wonderful thing?!! Our first days of Spring have been delightful! Sooo much sunshine, sooo many outside jobs that need doing and sooo much motivation to get them done!
I have some flower cards to show you today, all the same layout but in the yummy new in-colours!
Have you played with any of them?? What is your favourite?? I'm quite fond of Tip Top Taupe, it's a great new neutral, but the Watermelon wonder is really FUN and bright!!! The featured stamp set is You've got this (page 113) and I cased the layout idea from there too!
This is one of the first times I've used the same card idea and copied it over and over in different colours, I'd totally recommend it, what a great way to get your card stocks up!
