Take 2 with Therese – Stamp Focus: Dotted Blooms + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I am sharing two ways to use the Dotted Blooms Stamp Set and the Dotted Blooms Mask Stencil.

I created a background panel and used the negative Mask Stencil to add some blended color.

Then, I stamped the sentiment and an overlay of Vellum. I added a line art die-cut Dotted Blooms image to the front of the card design.

My second design uses the positive Mask Stencil to add a halo of color around the flowers.

The vase came from the Life is Beautiful Stamp Set and the sentiment came from the Wispy Begonia Stamp Set.

You can watch my video here or watch it in HD on YouTube.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

I love both cards you did Therese, they are awesome. I thought it was a great idea to fold back the vellum so you could adhere it to your card without seeing.
And the second card, there was the image realy come to live after using the coloured pencils. Thank you so much for showing.

I have been admiring the Dotted Blooms stamp set with the stencils and dies since it first was issued. I have held back but seeing your video with new subtle techniques and hues makes this set a must-have. Thank you for sharing.

It really is a beautiful set and I am having so much fun with it. It’s the stencils that are taking it to the next level I think.

Hi again Therese. LOVE both of these cards! I mentioned this on the Youtube as well, but this Take 2 series is great – love getting 2 inspirations from the one stamp. I always enjoy watching you and listening to you, as it’s good to know that even you talented people sometimes look at your work and don’t like it. I’m always second guessing my cards. You’re often quite funny too, which I also love. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work Therese. You’re always appreciated.

So happy to hear you are liking this Take 2 Series, I’m having so much fun creating 2 versions of something and making myself ‘think’ lol. Hope you have a great and crafty day! Hugs

Wow, both of your cards are gorgeous! I love the softness that the vellum gave on the first card. I’m so glad you didn’t scrap your second card because it’s stunning! I would never have thought to put the branch in the vase but it works so well. I like those cream colored inks, as well.

Gorgeous cards Therese, as always! It is amazing how adding more colour to the image changes the whole look of the second card! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring us all!

Reply
Therese Calvird February 24, 2019 - 15:01

I agree, it wasn’t my favourite until I added the extra colour and then it seemed to just come to life, and I was much happier (and that’s what is important after all lol). Thanks so much for your lovely comments.
