Thinking of You, Release Day 2

Today I am sharing with you the newly released Thinking of You stamp set from Flourishes llc.  Its from the Simply Sophisticated line of stamps, so they are very easy to work with.

For my first card I used some Urban Prairie paper and brads from Basic Grey.  The base is kraft card stock followed by a light teal Prism card stock, then the dp.  I distressed the edges of the teal and urban prairie paper, then sewed them together.  The front panels on which I stamped on were cut and embossed using the Labels 2 dies from Spellbinders.  Oh I forgot to add that I used a scalloped border punch on the teal prism paper.  I punched a hole through the white card stock and ran my ribbon through the holes and tied a bow.  After the bow was tied, I then added dimmensionals on the back side of the kraft paper.  There is very little stamping or technique on this card, it was stamp and go :)  Its all of the embellishments that make it fancy lol.  The paper, brads, ribbon, and Spellbinder dies can all be found here.  
"With Sympathy"
For my second card using this set, I kept the card fairly simple.  I stamped the floral bouquet on the parchment paper using Versamark ink.  While the ink was still wet, I went over the image using SU pastels/chalk.  The sentiment was stamped in black Stazon ink.  Again I punched a hole on either side of the parchment paper and ran the ribbon through the holes and then tied a bow.  I'm really weird about having things in threes so I added 3 kaiser gem/pearls on the bottom.  Again really easy and simple stamping, if you didn't want to go over the image with your chalk, this would have been beautiful as a monochromatic stamped image.
"In our Prayers"
