Greetings friends.  Welcome to the last day of the summer stamp release blog hop.  For the last day, I thought I would share a couple of floral cards:


For my first card, I used the new Cover a Card Background called Peony Pair.  I had to trim it down to fit onto a card, but I really like wide open spaces for coloring.  I stamped the flowers in black Versafine ink onto 140lb watercolor paper and then painted it with some Peerless watercolor paints.  To finish the card, I added words from the same clear stamp set I used yesterday on my "gratitude" card.  Can you tell it has become a favorite?


For my second card, I used an image called Wildflowers.  The flowers and sun are both part of the same image. Once again, I stamped it onto 140lb watercolor paper with black Versafine ink and painted it with Peerless Watercolors.  As a final touch, I added a best friends sentiment.

Finally, this has nothing to do with the new release.  I just mailed a REALLY late birthday card and used this sentiment on the envelope:


I love it so much, but I realized I had never shared it with you.  I'm sensing a theme that I am late with a lot of things!
