Simple Cards

Hello sweet friends.
Hope you enjoyed your day off yesterday.
I did a lot of crafting....Now all I have to do is wait for good lighting and take pictures of  all of them.
So today at Sweet Stamps, we have a new challenge for you.
This weeks theme is:
Clean and Simple
Now, just recently Sweet Stamps, released some amazing new stamps. 
I mean AMAZING!!!!
Today I am showcasing 4 for of the new floral stamps.
These have been stamped with distress ink embossing ink and embossed with black detail embossing powder on watercolor paper.  I then colored all my images with distress ink markers.
Here is a closer look at Poppies and Hydrangea.
A closer look at Autumn Blossoms and Summer Blossoms.
I kept the cards very simple of course, keeping them as the focal point.  I just added some simple stitching, colored cardstock and mounted them on either kraft or white cardstock.
