Hello, good to see you! The stamp set I’m using today has been in my possession for a few months but I have only just used it. I’ve gotten the stamp set out several times and my craft mojo was lacking and have never made anything with it. But I had some crafty success on Saturday and I love how it turned out, as though I am sending some a bunch of flowers in the post to go with the hug! When I tried using this stamp set before, I kept trying to make a one layer card, which for some will work perfectly fine. However, it just didn’t suit my style, and I knew I need to add some dimension by layering the florals up. Then my creativity was sparked and I came up with a card for sending hugs and flowers as well!
sending hugs and flowers Process overview
To start, stamp a variety of the florals on to Neenah 80lb solar white card, layered the stamps up accordingly. MFT have added a line around each group of flowers so you know which layers go with which. I used a selection of my new Catherine Pooler Design Inks for this card. For the flowers I used:
- Tutti Frutti
- Peppermint Scrub
I used a stamp positioner to stamp the florals; one to get good coverage of colour and if it was splotchy I could stamp it again. Two, it speeds up stamping a flower several times, as you can rotate your cardstock 180 degrees and stamp again. Next I fussy cut the flowers and leaves out. MFT does have a coordinating die set for this stamp set, I just haven’t got it.
For the background, I use a blending tool to add tumbled glass and Broken China to a white card panel which was trimmed down to 5.25″ x 4″. As I was going to position the florals over this, I didn’t mind about a small rough spot of ink when applying the ink to the card. Using foam and glue, I adhered the florals and leaves to the card panel, trying to mimic the shape of a bunch of flowers.
The card panel was adhered to a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base made from Neenah 100lb Solar white cardstock. The sentiment from Altenew Floral VIne was stamped in black on a white strip of card and foam mounted onto the card. Lastly, a selection of sequins was scattered around the card and adhered down with multi medium matte. I use the ranger precision tip on my multi medium matte forapplication off aa small amount of adhesive.
