Stamp On it

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! (I'll be back to share what the kids gave me once I get the pics uploaded!) :) Today's card was a simple one: I used a piece of pink DP from a Basic Grey pack (all the "solids" 9which are still printed with terrific distressed texture) they always put with their prints are perfect for this!) and then stamped both the bold, frilly flower from "Pressed Flowers" and the matching line art flower from "A Year of Flowers" in black, starting with the bold and alternating the rows, leaving a space in between so the row below would 'nest' into the one above, then stamping the line art flower into the spaces. I love this new look, you can never go wrong with black!

I stamped Nina's "Lovely Label" and greeting in black on white CS, the die cut and popped up over my new pattern, and added a line art cut out flower to the curling vine on the stamped image to match the background. Black Onyx mat punched with threading Water and mounted onto a White Pure Luxury base. Last I added some white dots to the flower center with my white Inkssentials Pen to make it pop a bit more, and match my punched border. A quick card, with very minima supplies!! Hope it inspires!
Have a great day!
