Forever Florals Thanksgiving

is having a Holiday week.

Love this Forever Florals stamp set. 
The flowers are perfect for coloring with the Blendabilities.

I used the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Blendie sets.

After coloring the flower, I masked it and added some 
leaves from the retired Peaceful Petals set 
and a stem from Secret Garden (also retired).

It seemed perfect for a Thanksgiving card.

I'm so enjoying this set.  I find coloring these flowers very therapeutic!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Forever Florals, Peaceful Petals (retired), Secret Garden (retired), Whacked Bright Blessings Wheel (retired)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Early Espresso
Paper:  Tangelo Twist, Whisper White
Other:  Simply Scored, Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon (retired)

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Here's another very CAS card I did with this set.
There was a stamping boo boo and it ended up much smaller for cutting the bad out.

You can go to Splitcoaststampers to get the details on this one.

I'm so glad you could stop by.

Beautiful Fall card on your first one, Bonnie. Good job with the masking and getting those petals stamped.
Your next card is beautiful, too. Oh, we've all had to rearrange our cards because of boo boos, haven't we? :-)I really like your embossed panels and such a pretty flower.

Two gorgeous cards, Bonnie! Your coloring is really beautiful on both! Love your Thanksgiving theme on the first one, and how you framed the flowers on the 2nd one with your embossed panels!
Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM this week!

I wish I could color as well as you!
Both cards are so pretty. I've always liked tangelo twist.

Oh my, 2 beauties to enjoy this evening. Love the brilliant fallish colors on #1. That masking effort is brilliant. It's difficult to get the leaves places without that 'mask gap' - at least for me. You've done it beautifully. Of course the pinks on #2 are gorgeous, and you KNOW I love that side embossing! So very lovely. TFS & Hugs.

As lovely as your first card is, I don't want to think about Fall yet and chrysanthemum flowers always make me think of Fall! Your second card is gorgeous - true summer flowers. And a great recovery from a mistake!

Absolutely beautiful cards - both of them, love the colours of each and your boo boo, came up trumps.

Hettie said...

Great cards Bonnie. Wonderful colouring in. I love the first one because of the oranges...there is not enough orange around!

Greta said...

Your coloring is so gorgeous, Bonnie! I've been thinking I need to make some Thanksgiving cards & now you've given me some inspiration!

Brenda said...

Oh my Bonnie, both of these cards are just stunning!! Now you have me wanting this stamp set too. I think too that color is very therapeutic. Hugs, Brenda
