Wildflower Meadow Playtime

A get-together with a group of friends who are also Stampin' Up Demonstrators gave me a chance to play with some of the new catalogue products that I haven't ordered (yet).  I was lucky enough to try some new colour combos with the Wildflower Meadow Stamp and Embossing Folder.

This first card uses one of my favourite new In Colours for 2013-2015, Strawberry Slush, and was very quick and easy to make. . .

Project Recipe
StampsWildflower Meadow, Mixed Medley (hostess, retired)
Card stock & Papers    Whisper White, Strawberry Slush
 InkStrawberry Slush
Tools    Fancy Flower Punch, 11/4 Scallop Circle Punch, 3/4 Circle Punch, Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder, Big Shot

The second card uses another In Colour, Crisp Cantaloupe - don't you just want to eat these colours - I love the names, and also allowed me to have a play with the Simply Pressed Clay. I made the flower in white and then mixed re-inker with Crystal Effects and painted it on the top. The card was another quick and easy one, but the clay does take a day or so to dry. I find it easier to have lots of flowers and buttons made in advance and then I can just colour them as needed. You can also colour them with the ink pads or markers, so they are very versatile.

The final card did take a little longer to make as I used the Markers to colour the stamp, however I think the effort was worth it. I have seen it coloured in various combinations and you get quite a different look depending on the colours you use.
