Cosmo Flower Petals...Happiness and Love

I have used the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Cosmo Flower Petals die set from their Love You release, to make a couple simply designed cards ...    `
I had tried putting this flower together all kinds of ways, but found the way I liked best was simply as a single layer outline, using eight petals.  The first one, I used a rainbow of colors, adhering the petals to a circle base, die cut from the circle in the set.  I added a center made from a black circle with the spotted outline piece in white.  The sentiment is from the Simon Freestyle Flowers stamp set (I LOVE this sentiment...great for all the time, but especially the times we are living in). 
 Here's a close up...

The second one, simply done, like the first...
This one, I made the card with all red petals, and a red/black center.  I used a sweet sentiment die from the new Simon Heart Animals die set.  This die is such a sweet surprise in this set!  The card is 6"x4 1/4", and I cut the panel that the flower sits one shorter ont the top and bottom than the sides for a different look.  I know this card is really CAS, but even as I thought of of adding bling, I just liked it as it was.  You could add a background or color, and although I tried black(which WAS cool), or a textured background(whichI tried as well), I kept going back to simply white.  Here's a close up...
I LOVE ths pretty flower...simple and pretty!!  
Thanks for stopping by today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. I LOVE these cards, Lisa! Thanks for the inspiration - I've gone over to Simon's from here to purchase the die set :)

  2. I wanted to take a moment to say “thank you”! I always find inspiration in your posts and your work has helped me grow and develop my own style of making. When I began making cards it all felt to cluttered and cramped. Your work showed me that my own need for simplicity was perfectly okay!

  3. I know I don't say it often, but please know that I am so thankful and so appreciate your kind and encouraging all make my day!! Thank you...hugs!!


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
