Inspired By Stamping Sneak Peeks - Summer Flowers

Welcome to Day Two of our Inspired By Stamping new release party!

Today, we are featuring Summer Flowers. (The links for new stamps will work beginning on June 10th, when the items will be in the store.)

This set has many gorgeous flowers to color, or paper-piece, or use to create beautiful backgrounds.  I went with some lilies for this card.



I stamped, colored and trimmed three lilies and two leaves from the set and layered them together.  A touch of glossy glue on the stamens added a little somethin'-somethin' extra.


The pretty vase is from a previously-released set, Mason Jar Summer Add On.  I added a flourish from the upcoming French Country set.  I couldn't believe how perfectly it fit the vase.  You can see a touch of script from Background Basics III, a set that was released last month.

Colleen, these flowers are GORGEOUS! Love how you've colored them, they look like lilies in my backyard! Well, before the new puppy ate them. The flourish on the jar is a stroke of genius, I'd have NEVER thought of that and often wonder what to do with small flourishes. Thanks for the inspiration. Again. :)
