Embrace Life

I think I am stuck in a rut with these colors. I just received my SU! Embrace life stamp set and made these three cards. I used Rose Red, Old Olive and Pretty in Pink cs. I colored the stamps with markers, filled in the petals and then went back and shaded with a blender pen. Then I cut around part of the flowers with an exacto knife so my sentiment would slip under the blossoms. My friend Jenn's (just4funcrafts.com)gramdma passed away yesterday so I made her a 6 x 6 sympathy card. It is hard to see but I dry embossed using the technique Debbie showed on her blog. In person it looks great but it is a little hard to see here. Click on the picture and you may get a better view.

I used crystal effects on the flower here which makes it look nice in person. Oh well, I need to go cut cs for the group's play day tomorrow. Have a terriffic Tuesday!

I love your color combo!! I get stuck in color ruts all the time ... I'm sure my stampers group is sick of Chocolate Chip by now - I use it on everything!!!! Your cards are gorgeous!
