Concord & 9th May Guest Designer - You Are Enough

Hello there!  I'm back today to share another post as a Concord & 9th Guest Designer.  Today I'm showcasing the Concord & 9th stamp set, You Are Enough.
I ended up creating two clean & simple cards using this beautiful stamp set.  This set is so versatile and can be used so many different ways.  In one of my past blog post I used this set along with the, You've Got This die and had fun watercoloring the flowers from the You Are Enough set.
The flower stamp from the You Are Enough set is so pretty and whimsical looking, I wanted to show how stamping them slightly overlapped in different colors makes them seem opaque, almost like balloons.  I stamped the outline image of the flower from the set three times on a piece of white cardstock overlapping each one (it's nice because the stem of the flower is flexible so I straightened the stem on my stamping block), then I stamped the inside of each flower in a different color using two shades of ink per flower (aqua mist/hawaiian shore, hibiscus burst/raspberry fizz, daffodil delight/summer sun).  Once I was done stamping, I did some fussy cutting and cut along the top edge of the flowers and adhered the flower piece with foam tape to my card base which I stamped my sentiment from the the You Are Enough set.  In the pictures it looks as though the flowers are stamped directly on the card base, but in real life having them popped up from the card base gives some nice dimension.  I added a group of three iridescent sequins to each card to finish them off.
Thank you for your visit and for the sweet comments on my work.
