Going Gray is not the first inkpad you'd pick up to stamp a flower. Blue bayou is the background cardstock with grey taffeta ribbon and Sky blue panel of cardstock. Stamps used for polka dots is from Polka dots and paisley with wording from Short and sweet and of course the Fabulous flowers flower.

My DD was delighted when this set Perfect Princess arrived in the mail. She even fell to sleep with it in her lap. So I've created a few cards with this set as a result. The diamond on the crown as well as the peeks on the crown are filled with glitter. The white gel pen was used to highlight the card and edge. Cardstock used is Cameo coral, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red.
The circle punches have been used to created these fun flowers. A Stampin' dimensional is attached behind the flowers to add interest. The circle punches used were the 1 3/8" for the flower and the 1 1/4" punch behind the flower with the 3/4" punch as the centre of the flower and the Scallop circle punch was used for the flower base. Doodling was added around the edges of the cardstock. The narrow grosgrain black ribbon made the stems. Different colours would give a different effect, but these remanents of cardstock were on the desk. Again the Pumpkin pie cardstock has lost alittle colour in the scanning process. Try one for yourself!!
Well my new Earth Elements Stampin' Write markers haven't been put down since they arrived. They've been colouring in stamped images, colouring stamps, emphasizing outlines, etc. Here the flower from the Time Well Spent Hostess stamp set has been coloured with the Cameo Coral and Creamy caramel Stampin' write markers. The background has been pierced in the shape of a circle.

The white flowers have been embossed with white embossing powder onto acetate. The acetate sheet acts as an overlay onto the Sky Blue cardstock stamped with Going gray dots. The flowers are from the Carte Postale stamp set. The ribbon is the new gray taffeta ribbon and it's great to use. Happy Birthday from Birthday Best was punched put with the 11/4" punch and the 13/8" punch underneath in Basic Gray cardstock.
This 6 x 6 page was created using just punches just for fun. It is on it's way to my DD kindy's fairy garden. The clouds are made using circle punches of different sizes with sections punched out with a circle punch and then pieced back together. My DD helped with the colour selections. The stamps are from Garden Whimsy and Simply Said stamp sets.
