Friendship Blooms – Sneak Peek!

Ok y’all! This is the one I’ve been waiting to share with you! While I do love gnomes…..that’s not it! My number 1 stamps are always FLOWERS! I love flower stamps! I love ones like roses in winter that can just be inked up and stamped…..I love ones like my Penny Black Modesty stamp that need watercoloring….and I love this set! It has some really sweet sentiments and great flower stamps!

And it is the one you get FREE this month when you purchase 3 stamp sets! Here’s the card I whipped up! This was my first real try with the koh-i-noor pencils. I cut this stamp out and colored it immediately when I got my box of goodies! It’s a really simple card, but I just wanted to show off the image. I am sure this will get a lot of ink time from me…..and just wait til you see the rest of the set!


supplies: Friendship Blooms by Gina K Designs (coming soon!); white and sweet blush cardstock from PaperTrey Ink; dimensionals; petite circle nestabilities; sweet blush satin ribbon; kraft cardstock; cold stone prismacolor marker; palette noir ink; koh-i-noor woodless pencils and blending stumps.

Check out Gina’s Blog to see more great samples of this set and the debut of the Kindred Kids!!

Also – quick question…..I have a prismacolor marker that I have used a few times to go around the images – like in the card above.  I can’t decide if I like it or not and every time I stamp I debate whether to do it or not do it.  What do you think?

    Hi Emily! I like the outline around the image. While it’s not obvious at first glance, it helps anchor the image, IMO. It’s a beautiful card, by the way! 🙂

  • Beauty of a card, Emily. I love flower stamps, too! My stamp collection is imbalanced that way. I like the prismacolor marker around the image.

  • Love your coloring Emily! The ribbon is wonderful and showcases the flowers beautifully!

  • Another beauty – love how soft and sweet you made this card!

  • Gorgeous card and I do love the shadow around it – makes the image stand out!

    Love how you did the scallops and your ribbon, that pink is so yummy! are you going to make me get the PETITE scallops too???

    I say thumbs up on the prismacolor marker, Gina sold me, so now I always use that or my pael aqua copic!

    Gorgeous! I love the simplicity of the card so the SI takes the stage! TFS! XO, Mimi

  • Fantastic!! I love your coloring with your new pencils, it looks wonderful! Great job!

  • Julie C.

    Love your card and it IS a beautiful image! I also like the outlining around the image…it just gives it a little depth that is not there without it.

  • I like the little extra touch with the marker, especially when you color with pencils. It makes it stand out, gives it depth. Beautiful card by the way, love the way you did the ribbon.

    I think I like it too. However for me to make a better decision, I would need the same image close by without the outline and then make my decision.

    Beautiful card as always Emily and a great stamp! Darlene L

    As always beautiful card! I love your style!
    At first glance you don’t even notice it… but when you really look there it is. So IMO its great, it makes the image pop without taking away from the desired look!
    TFS all of your great ideas!

  • Love the colors you used and that satin ribbon with the flowers are to die for!! LOVELY!

  • Colleen

    Lovely card! I just wanted to say that i like the use of the prismacolor marker around the image. It gives the image some depth…but it’s just a very subtle, light hint! THUMBS UP!

  • Love it! It’s so pretty

  • Ellen Sutton

    Beautiful card! I like the shadow around the image too! It really makes it pop!

  • I agree that flower images are so versatile Emily. You are already really good with those pencils! Whoo Hoo!


  • I like the marker—for what it’s worth—I need to get something like that. I think it adds a lot of depth~

  • Lori A.

    I *love* this card! It’s so pretty. I think the outline looks nice!
