Flower Thanks

January 22, 2017

Lawn Fawn has just completed the sneak peeks of their new spring products. I feel in love with the new flower layering set. I know it will not be available for at least a month, but I wanted to play with stamp layering. While looking through my stash I found Penelope’s Blossoms set and decided to try to stamp layer those flowers.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I started these cards by die cutting two cross stitched rectangles from some water color paper. While my CuttleBug was out, I also die cut the Scripty Thanks die from some black card stock and yellow fun foam. The fun foam has an adhesive backing to I attached it to the black card stock before die cutting.

Then, I began stamping. I picked some Distress Inks to stamp my flowers in. I made sure to have two shades for each color family.  For the lighter layer, I used the back of the stamp to get a solid image. Next, I flipped the stamp over and added the darker layer for the detailed image. Lastly, I added the green foliage to fill in the space.

I adhered the Scripty Thanks to the front of the panel with some liquid glue. While that was drying, I worked on my card bases. I decided on a light pink card base. I added some wood grain texture using a very light gray ink. After I attached the stamped panels, the cards were finished.

  1. What a great idea to use the back of the stamps first…. this is why I have to check the details of extraordinary cards. I am always learning something new. Thank you! So happy that entered the challenge with the LOVE group this month.
