Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Fabulous Flowers. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The Flowing Flowers Stamp Set is a favorite from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Today’s “clean & simple” card was easy to create with Sponge Daubers and a Stamparatus. If you aren’t familiar with the Stamparatus, click on its picture in my Product List below.
First, I placed Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, on the platform of the Stamparatus. Second, I attached the Flowing Flowers stamp on the lid and colored with Sponge Daubers and five colors of Ink. I started with the leaves and dots in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive, then the flower in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Polished Pink, in that order.
Third, I lowered the lid, pressing it to the paper, with each color, and repeated the process for the second flower. The Sponge Daubers can be rinsed clean with water, ready for new colors on your next project.
Next, I stamped “Just A Note,” from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. This fabulous die set is retiring soon, so order now, at a reduced price ($29.60), while it’s still available.
To make the flowers pop, I glued my art piece to a Basic Black card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and my “clean & simple” card was complete.
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on [second Wednesday]. Our theme will be New 2022-2024 In Colors, with the Pals showcasing the brand new In Colors in the new Annual Catalog.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
