Stippled Blossom Cards

You  could say I had a Stippled Blossom day when I made these.
I made the red one because I love  deep red,  then I started to wonder if the same card would work in other colours so I tried purple and then I tried  the dreaded Orange.
I really loathe the colour orange and the fruit as it happens. 

For these 6x6 cards.....
I used the retired DSP from SU . The colours were Cherry cobbler, wonderful wisteria and pumpkin pie. I  also used the same colour inks  plus pretty in pink, concord crush, apricot appeal, for the flowers.
Old olive and lucky limeade for the foliage.
The Stamp Stippled Blossoms from Stampin up. ( still available) This is still my favourite stamp set. It's a two step stamp set.
If you have never come across these sets you won't know how they work.

 Basically they are sets where you have a solid image stamp and a detail stamp to create one image.  You stamp your solid image in a light colour ink. Then ink up the detail stamp with a darker ink and stamp over the solid image. 
In the above card  I stamped the solid image in lilac ink.
 Then I stamped over the solid lilac image with  the detail stamp and dark purple ink. 

As you can see these stamps give a very detailed gorgeous image without having to colour a thing.    My kind of stamps.

The paper lace was punched using two punches from Martha Stewart's range of punches.

White paper lace didn't look quite right  on the orange so I opted to use Black . 

 I don't think I would like to receive this card if I were ill, being orange it would probably make me sicker.
