Stamping Flowers and other things

I love to stamp, maybe you have already guessed that much!!!
 
 So I pulled out some stamps for a few challenges in blog land.  First up I used the color combination at Dynamic Duos and the sketch at Freshly Made to put this card together.  That great label shape is cut with my Cricut Expression using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the green cardstock is already embossed from Core'dinations. 
The little stamped pieces are stamps by PaperTrey, Inc.  This is two stamps put together, I thought they created the cutest little accents that make this fit that sketch so nicely.

 Here is the Dynamic Duos combo, this is my first time to play along with this group.
 And here is the Freshly Made sketch.
 Now, I just had to play along with the Colour Q Combo, they always make their color choices to inviting. This also fits Cath's challenge at Moxie Fab for repetition for Card Design week. 
 These stamps are from the same PaperTrey, Inc set as the last card. LOVE the stamps and I also purchased the matching dies. Love how they cut out the flower and leaves.
Here is that amazing color combination for Colour Q.

 And, for another cute flower stamp, I used the retro sketch for this week. The papers are a brand new purchase for me from a mini pad by BasicGrey, the Shine On collection.  The button is from that collection too. I think my little grouping also worked for the Moxie Fab Asymmetry challenge that Cath posted this morning. I was working on my card as I was reading her challenge.
 I used a Hero Arts flower and the matching die. Let me tell you, there just aren't any dies out there easier to use then the Hero Art ones.  You can see through the middle of them to see your placement.
Here is the retro sketch that I used.
 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Fabulous cards, Linda! And fabulous stamping! I love that PTI set you used and love how you used it. The hexi pattern you made with those gorgeous flowers is SO eye catching. Really love that Hero Arts flower, too. The pearls you added to some of the flowers are so fun. Love the button center, too. And I love what you did with the River Rock and Basic Black combo. So much interest from just neutrals!
