The sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. “Sakura” is derived from the Japanese word for “bloom” – “saku.” In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying dies have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

Here's how the set layers:

This flower building team of stamps and dies open up a whole new world for me. I have steered away from flower stamps, even layered stamps, because of flat results. The ability to bring these flowers off the page is great. This is definitely on my wishlist!
