I love the Flowing Flowers stamp set from the new spring catalog! I know there are many stamp sets with flowers but this stamp set has wonderful sentiments in a beautiful font, as well as lovely flowers.
- Paper Cuts–
- Thick Basic White Card Stock: 7-1/2 X 5-1/2 scored at 4-1/4, 5-1/2 X 3-3/4 score at 2-3/4, 2-1/4 X 3-1/4
- Flirty Flamingo Card Stock: 1-1/2 X 3-1/2
- Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper: 4 X 5-1/4, 3 X 5-1/4
I cut the pieces per the list above.
I adhered the smaller piece of Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series paper to the front of the card, then I adhered the other piece to the inside of the card.
I stamped the flower on the small piece of Basic White Card Stock using Flirty Flamingo ink. I then stamped the sentiment using Memento Black Ink. I stamped the leaves next to the flower using Soft Sea Foam Ink. See the Tips and Tricks section on the bottom of this post for how to only get the leaves to stamp.
I adhered the small stamped piece to the Flirty Flamingo mat. I then adhered that assembly to the smaller card. NOTE: This smaller card will open backwards! The fold will be on the right!
I adhered the small card inside the larger card. The large card will have the fold on the left and the small card will have the fold on the right.
To finish the card, I added a Bumble Bee Trinket to the card front using Glue Dots. The edge of the bee will just hold the edge of the card front closed.
Tips and Tricks: For this card, I wanted to use the leaves from one stamp with the flower from another stamp. There are many ways to achieve this effect. I stamped the flower using Flirty Flamingo Ink. I inked the leaves of the other stamp with Soft Sea Foam Ink. I then used a baby wipe to carefully wipe off the ink from areas that I didn’t want to stamp (everything but the leaves). As an alternative, you could use a sponge dauber to ink only the leaves.
