IO Stamps Flowers for You Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Hello!! Today I was able to play along with the Beautiful Flowers for You Challenge over on the IO Stamps Blog!!  I don't actually own any of the Amazing IO Flower Stamps though so I had to look at my collection and come up with an idea for how I could use my stamps to make some flowers!! So here is what I decided to do!! I have the FUN CL464 Easter Basket Stamp Set and the matching Dies!
Easter Basket CLEAR Set     Basket    Egg Set

My idea was to make a FUN May Day Basket Card!! I decided to create flowers using the Easter Eggs!! So I picked out some tone on tone papers with small patterns. Then I stamped with a light matching ink in the solid and stamped over with a darker pattern stamp ontop!! I LOVE the subtle pattern and the way that the flowers turned out!! I die cut the Basket and then stamped over it with a dark kraft ink and then used my distress inks to add shading and color to the basket!! I used a Sketch from the Retro Sketch Challenge Blog and it really made the elements of this card come to life!! =)

I had a BLAST being creative with this this stamp set and my mind is going crazy with ideas for using this mostly Easter Oriented Stamp Set and using it for other things!!
Here is my card I hope you like it as much as I do!! =)

THANKS for stopping by and have a Fabulous Week!! =)
