Ten Minute Tuesday!

Raining Flowers...
I haven't played with this set for awhile, but thought it would be fun to use for today's Ten Minute Tuesday. Even if you've never stamped before I believe you could complete these two cards very quickly.

What helps keep these cards from being too plain is the wonderful torn edges. One of my favorite ways to simply add some interest to a card.

I chose two simple stamps from this stamp set, two colors of ink, two colors of card stock.

Two small rhinestones, "Sharpie-colored" with bright pink, add just enough bling to a simple card.
The flowers were stamped in Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo. Set on Whisper White with a background card of Melon Mambo (oh, I love that color), it gets a little extra wow by dressing up the envelope with Floral District DSP.

Stampin' Write Markers work perfectly for using two colors of ink on one stamp.  And don't you love this little saying, 'bloomin' marvelous'. Perfect for all sorts of occasions!

And, yes, I have a tutorial which you can download for free...
but, honestly, these cards are so straight-forward that I decided to post the dimensions for all you gals that can take it from there.
