Hello, everyone! It's Laurie here today with a few new projects using the gorgeous Sweet Flowers Stamp Set. If you follow my blog, you know I am a quick and simple stamper. I love easy and quick ways to make cards pop. Today, I am going to show you 3 different ways to use this set to create fast cards that really stand out! Let's get started!
This first card was super easy to make. First, I cut five 3/4″ strips of yellow cardstock and one 1/2″ strip. After laying down the first 3/4″ strip along the bottom, I used the 1/2″ strip for a shim to add the next 3/4″ strip. I continued up the card until the stripes were all in place. Using scissors, I cut the edges off and a little off the top strip.
After stamping and die cutting those gorgeous yellow Sweet Flower blooms, I carefully cut the stems to layer them and to stuck them in flush with the second stripe. I masked and stamped “sending” from the sending hugs sentiment included in the set and then die cut the Circled Greetings: Hugs Die in black cardstock. After a couple easy snips to cut the sentiment out of the circle, I added it to the card front with foam tape.
Using Sweet Flowers to create a background image gives amazing results.
I simply stamped the blooms until the card panel was covered. Next, I went in with a light blue Altenew Alcohol Maker to add in the background color. Adding in a little shading with a darker blue marker gave a little depth to the project.
Last, I die cut the Mega Hello Die in black cardstock and a layer of black fun foam to give it some dimension. I added it to the card with liquid adhesive. Snipping off the sides of the “hello” to be flush with the card base gives it a fun graphic look.
The blooms in this stamp set are so easy to stamp and look great in any color. Today, I thought I would try some neutral colors for an elegant look.
Altenew has the most gorgeous variety of gray inks. This Warm Gray Ink Set worked perfectly to create these neutral blooms.
To finish off the card, I layered the white card panel on a light gray card base.
Sure hope you have enjoyed today's Sweet Flower projects. This floral set is definitely one to add to your stamp collection for those quick and simple cards! Hope you have a great day!
