The images in the Floral Statements stamp set are elegant and large.  Although I love to color I wanted to try something a bit more simple without losing the elegance.

I opted to stamp the “thanks” on the Petal Garden Designer Paper.  The rose pattern made the perfect background.  I used Rich Razzleberry ink then stamped it again on an additional piece of designer paper.  I used my scissors to cut out one single bud, mounting it over the top of the original stamped image using Mini Dimensionals.

It looked a bit plain so I took my Aqua Painter, while the ink was still slightly damp and bled the color through the petals.  I was careful not to oversaturate the paper and then allowed it to dy.

I stamped the “so much” from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set on a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  The Mini Dimensionals are perfect for these small pieces.  An Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dot fit perfectly to the side. After all, when is a little sparkle not appropriate, right?

Don’t overlook those images when you’re not in the mood to color them in. Use a piece of patterned paper and stamp away.  I think you will be surprised at how easy, and beautiful, your finished card will be.
