Lovin' Silhouette Blooms!

I have been having such a great time with my Silhouette Blooms stamp set from CHF. I spent an hour on Wednesday putting together some fab creations, one of which I can share with you today and another next week. It's a good thing I get a few cards done every few days. I spent the good part of today in a vehicle and now I am exhausted. I guess that is what you get when you live in the sticks. You have to drive a long way to get somewhere. Of course the beauty of living in the sticks is the low population, the wilderness and NO traffic lights *lol*

Sympathy cards are the cards I like to make the least but that I like to have ready for those timeless moments. One of the benefits of Kim's new set is how versatile the set is. You can literally use Silhouette Blooms for anything! Wait until you see what I used it for next week!

paper: Blue Bayou, Going Gray (SU!), Suede Brown dark (Prism Paper available through CHF)
ink: Whisper White, Blue Bayou (SU!), Brown Colorbox Ink (by Clearsnap available through CHF)
stamp set(s): Silhouette Blooms (Kim Hughes at CHF)
accessories: Gray Taffetta Ribbon (SU!), Nestabilities (Spellbinder/Ellen Hutson's store), Flowers (SU!), Round Corner Punch (SU!), Scor-Pal

I hope you have a terrific day. I am looking forward to a few hours of stamping tomorrow.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Hi Alli,
A beautiful card that says so much!! In the photo it looks like the flowers on your focal image are that an optical illusion? It's lovely, however you did it! Will you tell?

Thank you for sharing!

This is a beautiful sympathy card. It is so quietly elegant and serene. just the right feel for a sympathy card.
