Wallpaper Card Set

When I first saw the Mum Stem and Mum Flower stamps, the first thing that came to my mind was vintage wallpaper. With that idea in mind, I decided to create a quick and simple card trio.

Aren’t they so fun? You could use them as Mother’s Day cards, or box them up and give them as a gift! I had so much fun playing around with what colors to use for this card set…

Although you can’t tell in any of the photos, I added Wink of Stella to the flowers, for a very subtle touch of shimmer.

For the first card, I used the light ink  (Soft Pool) to stamp the Mum Flower, since it’s larger and the soft ink wouldn’t stand out quite as much as the darker Pool, which I used to stamp the Mum Stem.

This second card uses Soft Apricot and Fresh Peach – I was worried the two might not work together well at first, but I think they look fun! That’s one of my favorite things about these cards – it’s so easy and fun to change up the colors and experiment!

My last card uses Soft Lilac and Soft Purple – I don’t know about you, but I’ve really been digging purples lately.

For all of the cards, I embossed Thanks for Being You using  white embossing powder on black cardstock, then topped off the little hearts with some clear Stickles. Each card was sprinkled with some watered down black ink – I’m really all about the little touches in cards, and how they can make an otherwise simple card pop a little more.

For my set today, I was inspired by THIS image from Pinterest. Pinterest is such a great source of new color combos for me! I hope you have fun exploring the color possibilities!
