Hello, everyone! It's Aga here today with three very CAS cards created with Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Layering Stamp & Die Set and patterned paper.

This floral stamp set contains a beautiful multi-layered peony and leaves, but I decided to use outline images only to stretch the set a little bit and give you a few different ideas of using it.

Card 1

For my first card, I used a masking technique and stamped my images in black to create a monochromatic background for a colorful number.

I used a beautiful floral paper from Verdant Walk 6×6 Paper Pack and Bold Numerals Die Set to cut out a number and popped it up with foam tape for more interest and dimension. My last step was to stamp sentiments.

For my second, I again used a masking technique to stamp a floral arrangement. This time, I used the patterned paper for a paper piecing technique. I used black ink and repeated images on patterned paper, and then used coordinating dies to cut them out and added to the card, but only for part of them.

To finish the card off, I stamped my sentiment in black.

Card 3

For my last card, I used Beautiful Bergenia 3D Embossing Folder to create a textured background. Next, I stamped leaves from the set on the patterned paper, cut them out with coordinating dies, and arranged them in the shape of a wreath.

My last step was to stamp the sentiment and die cut it with a small circle die.

Wow. I think a big part of this technique is to choose just the right patterned paper and the right stamps. The colors n the paper have to be light enough to distinguish the stamped image, but must have color to encourage the illusion of a lovely peony. The outline stamped image has to be simple so as not to confuse the outline with the pattern in the paper. This is a great example!! Thank you for sharing these ideas to stretch my stamps and my many patterned papers.

I could not read the numbers right away on the first card. They just blended in too much at first glance.
