Don’t these flowers look like they were watercolored? They were simply stamped, using a stamp from the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set!

Ornate Frames & Flowers


I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, topped with Whisper White Cardstock that I cut with an Ornate Layers Die. 


The flowers were stamped in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Inks. My flowers needed some foliage, so I remembered leaves from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set that had the same watercolored appearance. I stamped the leaves in Coastal Cabana Ink, and cut them with their matching Leaf Punch.

I also added some Baby’s Breath, cut with a Frosted Bouquet Die from Thick Whisper White Cardstock. The First Frost Stamp Set and Frosted Bouquet Dies have been a favorite of mine. They are retiring, so get them now, while you can.


The sentiment, “Hugs Prayers Love,” is from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Coastal Cabana Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. I glued the leaves to the back of the sentiment, before adhering it with Dimensionals.

TIP: Each leaf is on a Mini-Dimensional for support.


I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.
