CCMC306 Too Kind

While I wait for my new Stampin' Up! stamps to arrive, I am enjoying being creative with my old stamp sets! And what better way than with this week's color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog?
It has been a looong time since I used Wild Wasabi so this challenge was a lot of fun. Of course anytime I see a green in one of our color challenges I think of flowers/plants.
I began with my card base and used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and scored a border on all 4 sides.

The stamped panel uses the clear block stamping technique. I inked the clear block with Coastal Cabana ink and then sponged off some of the ink in the center. Next I just stamped the clear block right onto the card stock. The flowers were stamped with Perfect Plum only. I just stamped off first to create the lighter color. The button is Simply Pressed Clay. I like to pre make plain white ones and then paint them with ink and an aqua painter as needed.

Here is a close up of the scored border and it is really easy to do! I miss the Framed Tulips embossing folder so this is a nice alternative.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

You and I think so much alike about our flower stamps! The green spoke flowers to me, too! I love the clear block technique in the background and the clay button! Wonderful touches! Great job with the color challenge this week!
