Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1

Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1

Hey!

Ahhh, Thursday how I love thee! Today I get a few hours to myself this afternoon as the beans are off to Grandma & Grandads for their tea :) I have a mountain of things I’d like to spend my time doing but I know for a fact that the 4 hours will go crazy quick.

Anyway, last night I had a little creative time in the studio once the beans were tucked up in bed to create a little trio of cards using this weeks Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #1.

The purpose of my little trio of cards was to show you just a small example of the mix & match possibilities the Flower Power series has.

For my cards I combined Flower Power #1, #5 and #6. My card design was inspired by the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below. Don’t you just love it when a challenge is perfect for what you had in mind? I do :) Oh and I was super excited to be a winner for last weeks challenge HERE with my card using last weeks Stamp Of The Week.  Thanks guys :)

The cards are 12cm tall and 10.5cm wide so they are smaller in height than my normal card as I didn’t want an uneven border around the stamped layer. The design itself is really basic and highlights how the stem and flower can stamped. For the flower I added a little more depth and detail, stamping it in two shade of the same colour.

I started out by stamping the darker colour flower and then rotating the stamp one leaf to stamp the lighter shade to create a full flower with a two tone effect. It is similar to the Ghost Stamping technique I have used previously with this set HERE.

A few more photos of the trio of cards to hopefully inspire you a little more…
