Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! This one is super exciting because it is all about FLOWERS!!! I just love stamping flowers and creating beautiful cards with them!!! This is no exception!!!!
How amazing is this card with the depth and texture and colors of the flowers??? I love it!!! So let’s get started on how it was created!
I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″ and embossed the card front with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder. Then I took scrap Whisper White pieces and stamped the flowers. The large center flower was done in Blackberry Bliss and the medium flower was stamped in Tempting Turquoise with the other flower on top stamped in Island Indigo. For the smaller flower, I stamped it in Crushed Curry and the smallest one (layered on top of the yellow flower) was stamped in Tangerine Tango. For the leaves, I stamped the solid image in Cucumber Crush and stamped off, then I took the center piece and stamped it also in Cucumber Crush (no stamping off). I then used the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits to cut out each of the flowers and leaves!!! No fussy cutting necessary here. I have a couple tips for finding the correct way to line up the flowers without spinning them around and around to see how it lines up. Check out the video below for those tips!! 🙂 I adhered the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a piece of Tip Top Taupe. I also stamped the greeting and little mini flower from the Flower Patch Stamp Set in Tip Top Taupe. I love it!!! You could use so many color combinations for a card like this and each one would be stunning I’m sure!! I finished off the flowers with a few Pearls!!! Love it!!!
