Best of.... Flowers and Stampin' Spritzer Technique

In continuing with my "Best of" theme, I am focusing on the Flowers set.  I fell in love with this set immediately as I love flowers!  You can see that the "new" image is able to be punched out - yay!  :)
I used the "Stampin' off" technique with the flowers.  I first inked up my flower, and stamped, then over-lapped it slightly and stamped again.  It looks like a brand-new color and you are not wasting ink! Apparently I am obsessed with butterflies lately because it made it onto both flower cards!
This first card uses several techniques, one of my most favorite is using the Stampin' Spritzer (#126185 - you get two for $2.99) to color our flowers.  
5 Simple Steps to "Spritzing":
1. Fill a spritzer 3/4 of the way with rubbing alcohol (90%).
2. Mix in several drops of re-inker.  You can use as much or as little of the re-inker.  
3. Shake it up and you are ready!
4. Spritz whatever you want that color.  It works on ribbon, glimmer paper, card stock, flowers, etc... 
5. make sure you let it dry for a few minutes before trying to adhere to your project!

The second card uses the 1 1/4 Circle Scallop Punch (#127811) to punch out the cute little daisies.  I used dimensionals under the daisies to pop them up and give them some "umpf"!  :)

Remember that when you order 6 "Best of" sets, you get to pick out any $14.95 set from the catalog for FREE!  

Come back tomorrow for some "Best of Birthdays"!
