Twofer Card Challenge #18-Garden

Well, I don't really do much for a flower garden as the only flowers I have are the ones that come back year after year. We do however make a vegetable garden but alas I have no vegetable stamps, dies or stencils so we shall go with a flower garden design for Darnell's Twofer Challenge this month. For these cards I used a stencil for my background designs.


The stencil used for both of the cards is the Stamplorations Artplorations Bold Florals. I just changed the colors for each card.

The thank you card also has some Washi tape from Stampin' Up! placed on it. And, the sentiment is a sticker from Stamplorations. I also added a few black sequins to it.



The sympathy one is a more clean and simple design with just the stenciled flowers and then the wonderful sentiment from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Memory in Our Heart stamp set. Due to the retirement of the owner Sparkle N Sprinkle is no longer in business. And, I know I will be missing their line.


Well, I am squeezing this in at the last moment more or less as the challenge closes in a couple days. It was a fun project and I enjoyed using the stencil and my Life Changing Blending Brushes to create these. The ink for the sentiment on the sympathy card is from Gina K. Designs.

Take care and see you next time I pop in. Thanks for visiting.

God bless,
Verna

Verna, what lovely color combinations you achieved in your sweetly inked flowers. The addition of black sequins and washi on your thank you card really make it pop! Thanks for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge #18.

That stenciling is very pretty! You have created such pretty blends and great color combos. Nice work here.

These are both so very soft and pretty, Verna. The black makes your colors pop more on the thank you card, but it still has a soft look and I love that. Your sympathy card imparts a sense of peace and calm. I see Diane said you enabled her to buy the brushes, and I have to say you enabled me, as well. I got the less expensive ones, but they're awesome and I love them. Glad you squeezed this in for our Twofer challenge!

That's a beautiful stencil, one of the first ones I purchased! I haven't had a chance yet to try blending it with my mind-bending brushes, so thank you for the inspiration, Verna! Your colors are gorgeous on each card and I love the pretty Washi on your thank you card! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #18! Hugs, Darnell
