one stamp two ways part 1

hello crafters
i've been working on a lot of altered projects lately, it felt good to sit down at my craft desk and make a couple of cards!
i purchased this inkadinkado individual clear stamp at my local big lots, and i was so excited to get started using it.

i used white embossing powder on recollection white cardstock. then used my ink essentials blending tool, and distress ink in wild honey, spiced marmalade, barn door, broken china, & stormy sky.
after coloring the flowers i cut them out. and layered them on the cardfront.
i added designer paper from stella and rose's mabel 6x6 paper pad. and punched a scalloped border, using fiskars scalloped sentiment punch.
i stamped the sentiment using a hero arts stamp anytime messages stamp set and momento tuxedo black ink.

i layered the orange flower using a glue dots craft dot. 
then finished the card by adding rhinestones to the center of the flower

thanks for stopping by
