All use the outline flower from Mixed Bag: Fun Stuff
The remaining stamp info is under each card.
Well, I actually could not find where in the new catalog the text is from, sorry! :-/ It definitely is a smARTworks stamp, though! I glued the paper onto cardstock before trimming so the flower would have dimension.

I stamped the flowers onto cardstock, and trimmed, then sent through the cuttlebug for a texture that coordinated with the background stamp. I had considered stamping and embossing the background stamp with clear ink & powder, but decided it would be too much bother! The faces, (used here and with the "What you see" card), were tricky. The image is a group of four adorable boys wearing hats, and not wanting the hats to show on the faces called for inking the stamp with marker to avoid those lines. It doesn't show in the picture, but I added a little color to the cheeks. The background was stamped in black, then colors sponged over it. A piece of vellum was placed over it. The stems were cut freehand so that I could have flowers at varying heights (I also rotated at least one flower portion to add variety).
What we see:
Trio stamping: Trio& Collage (What you see text & background petals)
Vintage: Eye Spy (eyes from spectacles)
Friendship: Call it friendship (the boys - face)
Backgrounds/Borders: Backgrounds 2 (smudge from top right)
Butterflies: ladybugs (faux ribbon)
I may have gone off the deep end on this one, but it sure was a fun idea to work with! The petals were made by creating several images from the collage picture of the child reading a newspaper. I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to get the precise placement I wanted (the words being at readable angles). For the leaves, I stamped the spectacles, then using the stamp-a-ma-jig, overstamped with the leaf part of the flower image. I stamped the background, then stamped the flower on, and attached the stamped petals and leaves. The text was sponged around the edges.
TOY dot uses:
Flora/Fauna/Garden: Bloom On (square w/dots)

The flower petals & leaves were overstamped onto stamped dot squares, and the stems cut from them aas well.
