For today’s Stamping Sunday Blog Hop I’m sharing three cards, using the retiring, Flowering Blooms Stamp Set, Flowering Dies, Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, and Layering Ovals Dies. If you click on the pictures in my Product List below, you will see the prices. The Flowering Dies have been reduced to $7.75. What a savings!
I also wanted to show how the Flowering Blooms Stamp Set can be enjoyed by three types of stampers: beginner, casual and avid.
The “beginner’s” card, on the left, is #simplestamping; just stamps, ink, and paper. A beginner will be delighted with the Flower Blooms Stamp Set, because the images are crisp and detailed, without requiring the Stamparatus. This set has the “WOW” factor!
The card base is Mint Macaron Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Mint Macaron in a print, 4 ” X 5 1/4″.
The top layer is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″, that I stamped with flowers and “thank you,” from the Flower Blooms Stamp Set, in Stazon ink. See what I mean about the detailed images?
The second card (on the right in the first picture) is for a casual stamper, taking more time and products. This time, I began with a Coastal Cabana card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) topped with a layer of Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″).
The top layer is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper (3 3/4″ X 5 1/4″) with the right side given a fancy edge by cutting with a Flowering Die. You are able to extend the length by moving the die down, and cutting a second time. After carefully adding pin dots of glue, I attached the two pieces to the white layer.
Next, I stamped the gorgeous flower in Stazon Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, used its die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.
I used the same sentiment, but gave “thank you” special treatment on this second card. I stamped it in Stazon Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used the smallest, Layering Ovals Die for cutting. Then, I cut Coastal Cabana Cardstock with the scalloped oval in the next size, glued the two together, and attached it with Dimensionals.
The third card, in the middle, began with a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
The So Saffron paper is a pattern of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, which I glued to So Saffron Cardstock for thickness, before cutting the hole in the middle. I used the largest Layering Ovals Die for cutting, then applied Foam Adhesive Strips to the back to raise the frame.
Next, I used a Flowering Die with Stazon Black Ink to stamp branches on Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″. Then, I attached this to the Foam Adhesive Strips before gluing the entire raised frame to the card front.
The flower was created with the Flowering Dies you see in the picture, and the sentiment was created the same way as the second card.
This card has additional detail, created with extra tools and product, that an avid crafter would enjoy.
