Fabulous Flowers!

I am in LOVE with the Fabulous Flowers SU! set!  It has been around awhile, but I just ordered it and it came in the mail yesterday. I got a chance to play around a bit with it today.  Here are some cards I made with the set:


The first card has the big flower in the set stamped in Wild Wasabi, with Chocolate Chip "rocked" around the edges. I stamped the flower 3 times and cut out 3 different sections to layer it. I then inked the entire flower with Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder 2 or 3 times to get a super glossy effect!  The paper is from the current mini catalog: Afternoon Tea.
Supplies:
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea DP, vellum
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Versamark
Accessories: Wild Wasabi ribbon, rhinestone brads, Clear EP, 

The second card uses the technique "Emerging Color" which is very neat. (click the link for a tutorial) I basically copied Beate's card, with just a few changes.  The basic idea of the technique is that you stamp in various colors different solid
 images.  Then stamp your large image (the flower in this case) with Versamark, and emboss with clear EP.  Next, brayer over the
 entire piece of paper that you've stamped with a dark color, which covers where you have already stamped. The embossed part of the card will resist the ink, to reveal the stamped images beneath the large flower.  Super cool!
Supplies:
Paper: Groovy Guava, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Warm Words, Canvas Background
Ink: So Saffron, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegrante, Versamark
Accessories: Brayer, Clear EP, Rhinestone Brads, Ticket Corner Punch

The last card is very similar to the first card, in that the large flower has been stamped 3 times, I cut out different sections, embossed and then put it back together.  This sentiment comes with the set, and has been embossed on vellum.  The brad in the flower is a really neat one I found in my stash! The colored matched Soft Sky perfect!
Supplies:
Paper: So Saffron, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegrante, Whisper White, Vellum, So Saffron DP
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Canvas Background
Ink: Purely Pomegrante, Groovy Guava, Versmark
Accessories: Brads, Ribbon, Clear EP
