Stamp Focus: Enchanted Iris

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone! I'm here today to focus on the Enchanted Iris stamp set. As there are so many great examples made by our design team and talented guest designers in the hop, I was thinking that this post would be little difficult. I thought: “What else can I do with it to show new ways of use?”:) But there is so much do do with this set. So it didn't take me long to come up with more ideas!

4x6 Enchanted Iris

So here is my first idea! First of all I used coordinating dies Enchanted Iris Die Set and foam sheet to create a solid layer DIY stamp. I stamped first with Rose Quartz Crisp Dye Ink and then with blended the edges using Puffy Heart Crisp Dye Ink.

Then I used original outline images and stamped them with Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink. This trick kind of made a perspective scene effect.

For the sentiment I used the same ink colors and chose this cute sentiment from a Crafty Friends Stamp Set.

For two following cards I heat embossed iris flowers on a Vellum Translucent Paper with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

I colored them with Artist Markers Set A from the back side – it gives a softer look.

For the first card I used Parchment Cardstock as a background and stamped a little flowers from the  Crafty Friends Stamp Set along with the sentiment with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

I used clear adhesive squares for the vellum flowers and added a little twine bow.

The second card has Classic Crest Solar White cardstock as a base and piece of Layered Plaid Cover Die B die cut as a focal background.

I also added some gold watercolor splashes and gold sentiment made using Enchanted Iris Die Set and Gold Mirror Cardstock.

The background die cut is made using pearlescent cardstock. This gives more visual dimension to the card as it glimmers in the light, also it adds a touch of luxury.

So very very beautiful! I kept thinking – this one is my favorite! Then I’d see your next design and THAT one would be my favorite, until I saw the next card and then the next. That settled it for me…. It was a 4 way tie today. Stunning work, Sveta! Looking forward to adding this stamp set to my own collection!

I absolutely ❤️LOVE ❤️ this enchanted iris stamp set and how it was used in the card design in this post. The image is elegant, but what is even better is the wording that comes along with this set. It expresses the exact sentiments that I would express to my family and friends. This is definitely a favorite set that is at the top of my wish list.
