Here is another card I made with the Triple layer flower punch. This card I made in another challenge I did. There are soo many things you can do with this punch. I also used the Bold blossom stamp set that coordinates with the punch.
Going to try and get creative in my craft studio for a while today.....until next time... :-)

On Sunday May 1st I woke up around 5am with severe pain on my left side. I had no idea what it could be and was hoping it would just go away. Needless to say that it didn't. My husband took me to the walk in clinic at our doctors office(that just happened to be across from the ER), and after he checked me out he sent me over to the ER. They ended up running a catscan and found out that I had diverticulitus. They admitted me into the hospital and I was there for a week. Let me just say if you have never had diverticulitus it is something you do NOT want to ever get. It has taken me awhile now to just start to feel better. I have to watch what I eat until everything heals then I am on a high fiber diet and hope to never have another attack.
So now that you know where I have been.....I am hoping to start stamping and posting regularly very soon. Taking care of the boys takes all my energy right now. I plan on trying to get into my craft studio this weekend. As soon as I do I will post what I do.
Thanks for understanding why I have not been posting and happy crafting to you!!

Today I made the pink card. I wanted to show how you can use primarily one color for the flowers or you can use many colors. Although it is the same stamp, using the different colors and putting them side by side like in the picture I think you get such a different look.
For the yellow flower card I used So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Black card stock. The ink was stazon black for the sentiment and White craft ink for the flowers. I heat set the flowers and then colored the image with my watercolor pencils.
Now for the multicolor flower card I used Pretty in Pink,Whisper White and Black card stock.The inks were the same as with the other card along with the watercolor pencils. I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Pretty in Pink and Black grosgrain ribbon on the card also. I also used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the black cs after I colored the flowers. You can see it better in the picture at the bottom. I wanted to add alittle something,but nothing too much or that would take away from the technique. The Smooch Spritz was just what it needed.
Hope you like the cards and give the Black Magic technique a try if you haven't already!

I surprised myself on how I was able to make this card and it didn't take me all night to do it. The idea came pretty easy this time.....we'll see about the next one...LOL!
