Flower Collage Trio (okay four-o)

I was trying to think of a name for the post...and all I could think of was the name of the stamp set - clever eh? Then I thought...I'd never say "trio"....and there are four cards....I would say "four-o"! !

I'd like to say I came up with these purdy cards all by my lonesome....but I didn't....I half-copied them from my good'ol friend Heather! She sent me a card MONTHS ago that made me NEED this stamp set! Her card was beautiful! The stamp set is Flower Collage Trio from TAC. It is a set of three (hmm..trio?) and makes the card look like I did LOTS-A work! Sadly, the hardest part was the little tiny Mellow Moss layer underneath the collage image stamp! It is an odd size with no true measurement... actually the sad truth is that my little paper cutter that I can't live without doesn't have the best measurement marks and I have to guess-ta-measure all the time. (And YES.....It has cut me!)
This is actually my second one of these cutters....I nearly cried when #1 one fell on the floor and broke....and #2 cuts crooked (couldn't be my fault) but I still use it! We have a Love/Hate relationship!

So back to the card and the copying! Heather used SU! French Script on her background....so did I! Heather used Linen background or maybe Canvas.....So did I! Heather used some green paper.....So did I! Heather used LOTS MORE LAYERS...and Eyelets, and inked the edges and distressed it and glitterfied it......it was YUMMY! I used my Lazy-Bug (cuttlebug) and Nestabilities and whipped out my layers in just seconds....but then I spent WAY TOO LONG trying to get that Mellow Moss layer just right! I colored it up with some SU Watercolor Crayons (sadly these have been much neglected since experiencing Prismacolor pencils and markers). One has glitter and one has crystal effects, and then I remembered I was being lazy(I mean making quick cards), so the other two have nothing! Anyway....Heather's card was Awesome....Mine is half copied so I will call it half-ass good!

Thanks for taking the time to read all the way down to here!

great cards. I know what you mean about your paper cutter. I had one for 7 years but finally had to give it up no marking and then the cutting finally gave up and crocked cutting I couldn't deal with.
