Throwback Thursday #2 - Very Vintage Florals

Hello, it's Maureen with another Throwback Thursday post! This month I am featuring Very Vintage Florals, Very Vintage Floral dies and the Label Layers 3 die as my throwback products.

Very Vintage Florals is the perfect set for simple Spring themed cards. While I love two and three step stamping, it's nice to stamp with a solid image too. The label included in this set makes for the perfect focal point. You'll see in my card set today, I've used a beautiful Spring color combination of Lake House, Sweet Nectar, Little Piggy, Beanstalk and Coconut Husk PURE COLOR die inks. The colors from each of the collections work brilliantly together!

To start trio of Very Vintage Florals cards, I used my go-to layout. Beginning with something that you know works for you is a great way to jumpstart your creativity. The florals in this set are perfect for layering over one another.

For my second card, I flipped the orientation and rather than die cutting and popping up the Label Layer 3 die like I did in the first card, I placed it in the negative space. Using negative space is a great way to add interest without adding layers in your CAS designs. I added the stamped florals across the card to add movement and flow to the design. On this card I added Mojito ink into the color mix and it works wonderfully.

For my last card, went back to my go-to layout and stepped up the design a bit by stamping the entire background with Borders & Backgrounds 2, using a larger font and adding more florals to the frame.
