This set has many different of whimsical flowers and leaves and there are so many possibilities for this set.
For my first card I went with creating a background using stamps from this set. You should admit – they scream “background of scattered floral elements”.
To start off first I stamped flowers and leaves using Velvet and Espresso inks onto a white panel. I started stamping bigger elements, stamping them in triangle manner. And then used smaller ones to fill gaps. Next I inked the background using Espresso ink, adding more color on the edges and working less heavy handed in the middle.
After that hello word was stamped in the middle, using stamp from Super Script set stamped with Velvet ink. To add a bit more interest to the background I splattered some white and red spray. Then highlighted some white droplets using white gel pen.
I made a top folding A2 card out of Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, cut the panel a half inch smaller then the base and mounted it onto the base using white foam. Lastly I added some brown and white liquid dots.
The second card is stamping on wood paper. It wouldn't be me, of I didn't use wood paper from time to time. These floral images look very suitable for creating “pyrogravure” designs.
For this card first I cut a panel out of Cherry Wood paper. Using a heart die I drew a heart with my pencil. And then stamped flowers and leaves with Dark Chocolate ink, using drawn heart as a guide. After that I erased pencil drawing.
To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment from Painted Greetings set in the middle of the heart, adhered the panel to a Kraft card base and added some wooden dots.
The last card for today is what I call “Tiffany inspired”. I have several cards on my past of similar idea and design. “Tiffany blue” cardstock (Robin's Egg would work as well) plus gentle and elegant design – that would be the recipe for such cards.
To make this card I first white embossed a row of flowers on a vellum panel. The cut it out and adhered to a mint card base. I white embossed a sentiment from Beautiful Day set. Added some florets, also white embossed on vellum and cut out. Several flat marshmallow sequins finished off the card.
I usually use this design for a wedding cards, or for a person, which I have no idea what her taste is, but know she's into jewelry and style.
So here you have three ideas of how to use this amazing Hello Sunshine stamp set. And I'm sure you saw some more designs hoping through blogs in November release blog hop.
Have a great day!
