MFT Funky Flowers Split Yellow/Grey


Something a little different today. I don't often make cards with stamped flowers, but I must admit that this Funky Flowers set from MFT Stamps has had quite the outing. I've already shared 2 cards that I made with it (the Kraft and White ones) and I actually have several more in my draft folder. I just found that they piqued my mojo in various ways and the versatility is what draws me to them.

For my cards today I kept things fairly simple and they were super quick to make once I'd decided what I was going to do.

For both cards I used a combination of white cardstock and patterened paper and then heat embossed the stamps in white, colouring them just by sponging them with Distress Inks. 

I kept to a yellow/grey/white colour scheme, just reversing the yellow/grey for the 2nd card.

If you didn't have Distress Inks (or other dye inks), you could use coloured cardstock if you have it, you would just lose the simple shading, but I think it would be just as effective.

On my first card I used a small word die to make my sentiment, using the negative space, and for my second I used a stamped sentiment on a stitched sentiment strip. I've included the items used below.

Smooth White Cardstock
MFT Calm and Cozy Chevron Paper Pack
MFT Fresh Gingham Paper Pack

MFT Essential Sentiments Stamp Set
