With the formalities taken care of, here's what I have crafted with this beautiful Camellia Stamp...

Swoon!!!! Painted flower perfection!

Oh my! How preeeeeetty! I.can't.even!!! 

This Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set is SO Beautiful!

I think it's no secret that I had so much fun stamping & painting these cards! 
Let's take a better look at them...

Oh aren't they just divine?!!
To keep them looking like a set, I've used the beautiful Celebrate Scrapbook papers for all three card bases, as well as sprinkled Enamel Dots for the embellishments.

Super pretty blooms and such encouraging sentiments - love it!
For these two cards, I simply stamped with the Permanent Black Crisp Ink and then painted with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. Simple, and yet so effective! 

But it's this card that really has my heart...


No line coloring for the win! 
To create this card, I stamped the Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp onto some scrap paper until the Permanent Black Crisp Ink was almost completely disappeared. I then stamped (with the barely visible ink) the Camellia image onto my card, and used it as a painting guide for my watercoloring. 
Here's a few close-ups for you...

Truly stunning!

I hope my cards have inspired you today!

  21. I love that you used the same paper as the background layer. I do love colorong and the enamel dots are just the perfect touch.
