Hampton Art Flowers

Good Morning, it really is here this morning the suns out though there are still clouds around but the forecast says they will clear. I've been sitting trying to tidy up my blog this morning and have to thank Nina over at crafting in croatia who has helped me with a couple of queries! Still can't get the Stamp TV logo across I keep getting an internal error message (sounds painful ah!). I'm not about to give up though if I learn one new thing each day I'll be happy.
So two more simple cards to post today. I've called them Hampton Art Flowers as that's the clear stamp set I used. I like this stamp set, the flowers are what I call "naive" (quite simply in style). It has some beautiful butterflies too, which I'll add later. This 1st one is stamped on white CS then mounted on black with all the edges distressed. I've used paper ribbon wrapped around both and then fixed it to my DP which has a scolloped edge. I punched another scolloped edge on my SU plain card and to finish attached the 3 buttons.

This second card is my favourite today. I had this very pretty DP in soft washed out colours that I thought would be great for the naive flower. Again Stamped on white card which is mounted on first a piece of beige/tan card that came to me as wrapping (can't quite remember what it wrapped just that I thought Ohh I can use that!!!). Then on a small off cut of Olive card, all the edges where distressed once again. I used the paper ribbon in a coordinating colour across the top and bottom of the card and finished of with another button.
So, that's it for today, now I'm off to do "my messages" as my Hub would say - (It's Liverpudlian for shopping). Have a great day!

What lovely cards. I just got this DP, but haven't had time to play with it. Thanks for the link to my blog. I've had the internal error problems, too, but it had something to do with blogger. So maybe just keep trying. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
