Catching up with Sherry Cheever and Stately Flowers 2

In case you haven't had much time to surf your favorite blogs this week, I want to make sure you don't miss the amazing designs of the amazing Sherry Cheever using "Stately Flowers 2"! Living in Kentucky, I am so glad she has the state goldenrod in her talented little hands! :) Delighted to see her own spin on these flowers, Sherry always does "shabby" so well!

Blue and orange are complementary colors, so these dirtied up vintage versions of pumpkin and aqua work so well! It looks like the flowers are embossed in gold and then colored (but you'll have to check with Sherry to be sure!), such a fabulous look!
And I am so partial to the girliness of this hawthorn card, don't these flowers look fabulous in pink? Love the double matting of the dies behind the image with the Spellbinders Classic Circle in black and Tear Drop Circle in pink. Something else I love about seeing others use my stamps, often hen I draw something one way, I don't always think to turn it in a different direction when I stamp (it has a "this end up" for me lol!) so when I looked at her card and saw these flowers tilted to the right it just takes on a whole fresh new look! :) Wonderful dotted paper, too, think it is a terrific choice with the tiny flower centers.

Hope you will stop by Sherry's blog and leave her some love! Thanks again, Sherry for working your magic with my stamps!

Can't end today without saying thanks so much for all the enthusiasm in your comments the past two days and at our release party for "Wild Flowers", I am so excited you're excited! :) Hope you're okay with taking just a wee break from the "Stately Flowers" series, but it will resume shortly, states near you coming soon! ;)

Have a great weekend! We are having really nasty, cold, wet weather here, so there will lots of movie watching and snuggling and hot things to eat and drink (all a few of my favorite things!) Looking forward to it!

SO I bought the TX state flowers because my DD was going to be moving there. Now she might be staying in ND. LOL I guess it's a good thing you have such great looking stamps so I'm not that upset. :)

Melanie - This series of stamp sets are all fabulous no matter were you live. I was pleasantly surprised when they popped up on Sherry's blog. Her work is amazing and these cards are no exception.
