BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE STAMP AND DIE BUNDLE

HANG IN THERE


BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE STAMP AND DIE SET, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, MASKING PAPER, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, CARIBBEAN SKY DYE INK, LAPIS LAZULI WASHI TAPES, BRAD, VERSAMARK INK, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, BLUE AND ORANGE CARDSTOCKS
  1. Stamp the floral image using Carribean Sky dye ink. Stamp the image again on masking paper and fussy cut the image.
  2. Mask the stamped image and stamp the floral image twice. (The image that was stamped first will be the one that will appear in front.)
  3. Add strips of the Lapiz Lazuli washi tapes to act as a border.
  4. Layer orange cradstock under the stamped image.
  5. Die cut the sentiment 5 times and adhere on top of each other.
  6. Add versamark ink to the brad and emboss with Rose gold embossing powder.
  7. Assemble the card.

I know this is a layering stamp set but I wanted to show you that you do not have to use all the layers. The outline stamp is a beauty in itself! I wanted to add a gold brad on the top right for an accent but didn’t have one so I added clear embossing ink to the surface of a silver brad then heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder. By adding a strip of orange at the bottom, the sentiment on the left, and the orange flap with a brad on top, a visual triangle was created which is pleasing to the eye. The rules/guidelines in scrapbooking can definitely be used in cardmaking to create a cohesive look 🙂


HERE FOR YOU


BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, LAPIS LAZULI SLIM WASHI TAPE, MASKING PAPER, CARIBBEAN SKY AND PERSIAN BLUE DYE INKS, EMBOSSING PEN
  1. Stamp the outline stamp using Carribean Sky dye ink. Mask the stamped image and stamp again to create a background.
  2. Stamp the layered stamps following the guide exept for the 1st stamp so that the lightest part will remain white.
  3. Continue stamping all the layers then add gold dots by using an embossing pen and Rose Gold Embossing powder.
  4. Create a striped background using washi tape for the sentiment.
  5. Die cut the sentiment 5 times and adhere on top of each other.
  6. Assemble the card using foam squares and adhesive.

For higher contrast, I used complementary colors. The stamped flowers were layered on the left side with foam squares and to balance it out, I added the sentiment on the right side.

The first card makes me think architectural. The blue plans with the pops of color and paper.
