Live it up!!


Talk about a fun, sweet & simple image to color-this flower barrel is it! One of the things I like about GKD stamps is that they are simple and straighforward. This flower barrel will never go out of style, it will still be a nice image in five years. It's from GinaK's Eclectic Summer stamp set, which came in the second StampTV set. I also used Bold Flowers on this card, which came from the first Stamp TV kit.

I used a large SU! circle punch and a making memories rubon for the sentiment. The orange flower is a sizzix die cut. I stamped the flowers from the flower barrel all over it in VersMark, then embossed with Ranger's Holographic, and then sponged Only Orange all over it. (For one of the largest selections of embossing powder on the net, check out the link to Creative Play Stamps!) It adds a nice bit of sparkle. Of course I added some Aqua Stickles to all the leaves and grass as well!
