Wild Flowers Inspiration!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing you with a gorgeous card set using "Wild Flowers" from the talented Lynn Brookside! I love the different patterned papers and colors she chose: large florals, simple stripes, even graphic geometric prints, and they all work terrifically with these bold wildflower images! This layout is so elegant with the three flowers and the two step stamping to add color with the leaves and centers is easy but effective! Love the dimension and sweetness of the one popped up butterfly, too! Cards like these are perfect to have on hand, no greeting necessary, use for any occasion. Gorgeous work, Lynn! :)
If you post in the STV gallery, it's likely you've received comments from Lynn on your cards, she is not only a terrific stamper but an amazing friend and encourager. You can tell she is as happy enjoying other people's work and complimenting them as she does cardmaking!

One of the verses in the set "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me" reminds me of Lynn, because she lives with chronic pain, but you'd never know by what she sends out into the world, she just lifts people up with her positivity. I'm not only inspired by her love for the craft, but her love of people and I'm blessed that she takes the time to be a light for me and so many others, with her designs and joyful spirit! I look forward to sharing more about Lynn with you very soon! Please leave Lynn a comment below or on her STV page. Her gallery is a wonderful browse and I love how she also takes the time to share who the cards are for.

So much to share! Kid stuff, family portraits (the first we've ever had taken as a family!!), new ink pads came, tutorials, etc etc bear with me while I catch up!!



  1. Lynn created an awesome set of beautiful cards with the wildflower set. I won't be doing much stamping for quite some time now but I still love to see what others are doing and be inspired by them. And, that verse on the set is one of my favorites to use too. It is a good motto for all to live by. Thanks Melanie for including it on the set.
