Happy Tuesday everyone!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you. Three Step Stamping, Masking, and Flowers make this technique oh so amazing!!! Check this out!!!
These colors scream SUNSHINE and BRIGHTER DAYS!!! I think it is the perfect card for a Sympathy, Just Because, or Get Well Soon because it is so bright and cheery! It would make a great card for any occasion though! This card uses the What I Love Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set! You can earn this set for FREE with a $50 order.
This card just needs stamps and ink and cardstock like any other card. I started with two pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 3″ x 4-1/4″. Add a little dab (little) of Snail Adhesive to the back of the smaller one and place it in the center of the larger one. We will be stamping over the 2 layered pieces at the same time. Now using the What I Love Stamp Set, I stamped the flowers randomly all over the layered paper. I used Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight for the 3 flower images. You will notice that the flower stamps have a little arrow. That arrow is to help you line up your images. Take note of where that arrow is every time you stamp and lining up the next one will be easier. For example, if you stamp the first one (the online image in the darkest ink) with the arrow pointing up, be sure to stamp the next two images with the arrow pointing up. The second stamp is the full solid flower which is stamped in a lighter shade or a stamped off image of the first color. The third stamp is the smaller solid image and this one can be just about any color – lighter, darker, or totally different. Don’t worry if you images aren’t lined up completely because I found that with the rounded edges and flower look, it’s okay to be off. It creates sort of a watercolor look and that’s okay! Remember you stamped projects are make with love, not perfection and you are your biggest critic. 🙂 Once you are done stamping, you will separate the two white pieces and layer the smaller one onto a piece of Tangerine Tango measuring 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″. You can place the larger layer onto your card front of Daffodil Delight. I added some Daffodil Delight Cotton Ribbon to the smaller piece and adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting, I used the Rose Wonder Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. This stamp set is AMAZING! It has flowers and some of the most beautiful greetings for all occasions. I love the font. I love the sayings. I love this stamp set. Get your’s now so you can play along with me in all the samples I’m creating with it. I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. I layered it with a Daffodil Delight punch as well (tutorial on that here). I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well! Love it!
