#502 – Stamped Flowers

…and I am back to stamping flowers! πŸ˜€ That’s the best and sure shot way of getting a beautiful card, I guess!

You Are Amazing

My first card consists of MFT Modern Blooms. I used simple stamping technique with Memento Dandelion, Memento Pear Tart, Hero Arts Soft Pool and PTI Sweet Blush inks to prepare a panel of these pretty flowers. Once done, I trimmed it to stripes, mounted them on the card base using foam tape. I then addded a strip of kraft card stock, adhered the ‘you’ from MFT Love & Adore You and then the stamped sentiment piece, from Paper Smooches Fancy Frames, stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then used some kraft die cut buttons from Impression Obsessions Buttons die cuts to embellish.

My second card is completely done using the Waffle Flower Leafy stamp set (except for a little die cutting and embellishing, of course! ;))

Thank You

I first stamped the sentiment and the flowers and leaves outlines using Memento Tuxedo Black, then stamped the counterpart – solid stamps of the same images using colored inks – Hero Arts Bubble Gum, Butter Bar, Neon Blue and Memento Bamboo Leaves.I stamped the images such that they were forming circles around the sentiment – going clockwise for the first circle, then anti-clockwise the next, and so on.

Once done, I die cut a circle from one of the edge. Now, I wanted the die cut to be partially stamped wit the images (notice the bottom half without the continuation of the flowers and leaves?), so I re-stamped the images in the same position using my trusty MISTI. πŸ™‚ I like the effect, but I am not sure whether this was the best design to showcase it.. Anyway, I proceeded to trim the outer panel, and to round the corners before tying some string on it and adhering it to the card base. I then adhered the round panel directly to the card base and finally embellished it some more using dots of silver stickles (glittering enamel dots??)

Thank You
