Flowers Galore

Hi Dreamers!
I haven't posted any Card Ministry cards recently.  None the less, we have been busy making cards for shut ins and those in need of a kind word.  We used this flower design and then I made a few more in different colors.  


Really Rust, Old Olive, and Rhubarb Stalk (Memento)

This is an older Stampin' Up set.  I like to get out these older sets.  They are so nice and the recipients don't care if the stamps are "retired".    The stamp was inked with red and green inks.  It is easier to use Stampin' Spots or Memento Dew Drops.  The small pads allow you to ink up the stamp and have more control over where the ink goes.  I used a combo of Stampin' Up and Memento inks on the cards.  I get all my Memento inks here.

 Melon Mambo, Cameo Coral, Bamboo Leaves (Memento)



 Taken With Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Tart (Memento)


 Sentiment from My Favorite Things.



 Rich  Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight. 


 Sentiment from Blue Ridge Impressions.


 Terra Cotta (Adirondack), Old Olive. 



Poppy Parade, Cameo Coral, and Old Olive.

You really don't need a lot of stamps to make a lot of different cards.  Thanks for  visiting!  Hope you are having a great day!!  Love ya.
Karen

Hello Karen! Did you have a good vacation?

I, too, like this retired SU stamp (tho I don't own it), and you made such a great group of cards with it! I like how you mixed colors for the blossom part. Have a great day!
