How about a pretty flower?

Hello ladies and gentlemen, it's Eva here today. Let's give some love to the awesome {ippity} stamp set called Just Wanted to Say!!! I have to say, when I first saw that set, I almost jumped out of my seat!!!! I know I certainly squealed...hehehe. I love simple sentiments and pretty label shapes, and this set in my opinion is a card maker's dream come true, won't you agree?

Well, today I thought let's show off a card using this versatile set! I know the kits are on their way to you ladies, so this is just one sample of using these stamps. And what I also wanted to share is this cute flower I made with Shimmerz Mist, which was sent to me by a very sweet friend, who thought I just needed it...hehehe....thank you, and you know who you are! Anyway, this how I made my flower. Using a Sizzix diecut, I cut flowers from dictionary papers. The color of the Shimmerz Mist is called Caribbean Sunset. Isn't it pretty????

Spray your flowers with the mist and wait till they dry. It didn't take that long, really, maybe 15-20 minutes.
Once they are dry, you just glue them together and I put a button with jute tied in the middle of the flowers. I think it turned out pretty nice. I have to say, the color didn't soak in the paper too well, but it's very shimmery and pretty in real life.

I used Pink Paislee's Amber Road line of papers for this card and the shape of the card was cut out with my Silhouette. I really love these stamps on this card, I know I will be using them a lot, that is for sure!!! I stamped the stamps with Memories ink, but distressed it with Ranger Distress ink. Hope you like it!

And today, I will leave you with a beautiful quote that I just love so much. Quotes is one of the things I love about Angela's Unity blog, so we want to keep that tradition going here. I think they are so uplifting!

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that,
but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.
