I just love flowers and everything you can create with them. A simple single flower, a bouquet in a vase, a full arrangement, and so much more! It is just so much fun and the color combination is endless. I used the What I Love Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set for these flowers as well as a little masking!
I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ and placed a 1-1/2″ strip of scrap paper in the center. You can add a dab of adhesive to hold it in the place if you wish. Then I stamped the flowers above and below that scrap piece of paper. Not so high that it doesn’t touch the scrap piece. You really want them close to that center line. I only used the flower outline (stamp 1) and the big solid piece (stamp 2) for these flowers. I also only used one color per flower – full ink for the outline and stamped off once for the inside. The colors I used for the big flowers were Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Island Indigo! The little flower that I stamped around was done in Perfect Plum and the greenery was done in Old Olive. All of these images are from the What I Love Stamp Set that you can earn through Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order. Once you are done with your flower bouquet, you can remove the mask. For the greeting, you can use the one in that set but I decided to use the greeting from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set since it was a bit bigger. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black. For the greenery on either side of the greeting, I stamped off once to get a lighter shade. I just love how clean and simple that center line is. Love it!!! I layered this piece onto Basic Black (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then using Stampin’ Dimensionals placed it on a Whisper White card base.
