This year, I have decided to try to make good use of my flower stamps. There are several flowers that are either official or unofficial flowers for each month. I want to make at least one card each month to go along with that theme.
For January, I am using this Carnation stamp from I Brake for Stamps.** Carnations are on both the British list and the USA list for Birth Flowers. Sometimes, I feel that carnations are an underrated flower. I really think they are pretty on their own and in bouquets, and there are so many colors.
(**They are one of a few companies that make stamps with a flower of the month theme (in the Embossing Arts category.) I have just a few of these!)
I used a pinky peach when I colored with alcohol markers. I need some Sympathy cards, so I used a simple layout and embossed my sentiment in black.
Supplies: IBFS Jumbo Carnation stamp (there is a regular version too), Memento Black ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (light corals), Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, grey and black cardstocks from my stash.
I would love to play along with these challenges:
