Vintage Flowers Postage Stamp ~ Double D Challenge

Happy Wednesday crafty friends!  As you know, every other Wednesday, Double D Challenges brings you a new challenge and I think this one is going to be super fun!
The theme is "FLOWERS".  

Gasp!  Who doesn't have tons of flowers in their crafty stash to play with??

I pulled out Sizzix Brushstroke Flowers 2 and die cut the flowers out using Smooth Cardstock in Warms and Floral tones.

I stamped a few background images using Spellbinders Sign Here & Reading Matter Clear Stamps and framed the front panel using a Postage Stamp Die.

Are you ready to pull out your flowers and get your craft on?
I hope you'll visit Double D Challenges to see more amazing inspiration and join in on the fun.

Here's the inspiration tile to get you started:

I love the look that you created of a beautiful flower stamp. Your photography of this card is a striking as the card itself. I adore the background that the die cut flowers and the price!

Marcia Hill said...

Such a beautiful floral card Birgit! Your flowers are so lovely and I love all the vintage background stamping...especially the 6 1/4 stamp! I wonder if they ever really had a stamp that cost that price with the additional 1/4 cent?! Anyway, lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

This is fantastic, Birgit. That postmark stamp is the best! Beautiful vintage design and with lots of dimension. One of my favorite color combinations too. Oh, and I love my postage stamp dies too.

Leslie Miller said...

Yup, I'm one who has plenty of flower stamps and dies in my stash! I love the colors you chose for this. Very warm and nice. Cool background stamping, too. I really like the vintage postage theme.

Count me in to the floral bunch, Birgit!
OH, I do love a postage edged die - how perfect for your vintage postal stamps! If you designed the real stamps, I'd choose them every time!
So blooming beautiful!

Your flowers are so lovely and I like the stamping you did in the background too, I love how you matted it all on the postage stamp die, great touch! I agree I probably have way too many flowers.
