One design, two cards

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi everyone!

It's Svitlana here today sharing two cards using several floral stamp sets.  I decided to make cards with one design, but different look. That can be easily achieved by just changing background.

To make these cards, first I stamped almost the same floral designs on two white panels. I was using Beautiful DayDahlia BlossomsSpring Daisy and Peony Bouquet stamps sets using various dye inks from Altenew.


This step was a little bit time-consuming as there was a lot of masking. Also, some of these flowers don't have a solid bottom layer so I needed to make negative masks to add solid color to all flowers.


I was using my MISTI stamping tool to stamp this design twice, which of course saved me some time.

When I finished with stamping part – I cut out all stamped parts with my scissors and started assembling my cards. For the first one I took a kraft card base. I white embossed a sentiment from Beautiful Lady set, adhered floral parts and added some die-cut sequins cut from the same kraft cardstock.

For the second card I took a striped piece of patterned paper, white embossed the sentiment, and adhered flowers to it.


I like that these two cards turned out to have a quite different look. But the idea and all actions were the same.


And as a stamper who struggles with using patterned paper in cards I am always happy when able to do it :)

Hope you're having a great day!

love both of your cards, Svitlana – but the second one is absolutely wonderful with the stripe background – I wish I could buy a whole pack of black and white stripe paper somewhere as it works so well with bright flowers!

Thank you, Betty! it was my last black and white piece from a PP pad. I’m thinking of buying one of those stripped background stamps to make my own. They do work great with bright flowers.

Stunning design, layout and colours. The Misti with a striped background stamp would be perfect. Love the inspiration, thank you x
