Hello Crafty Friends!
When I first saw the Reese Stamp Set I just knew it was going to be one of my most favourite Felicity Jane stamp sets ever! I took a piece a white cardstock, a bunch of pretty ink colours and started experimenting to see all the different flower combinations I could create.
I decided to use the stamps to make some pretty floral cards so I started cutting out a variety of stems in two different green inks, then stamped a whole lot of different flowers in light pink, rose pink, red, orange and yellow before fussy cutting them out. Then it was time to start putting my cards together!
The first card idea I had was to create a little bouquet of flowers. I chose the “Spots” paper from the Reese Paper Pack to create a border for my 3.75 x 5 inch white cardstock piece. I stitched around the white cardstock and adhered it to the spots paper with foam adhesive, then started to create the bunch of flowers.
I found a little piece of tissue paper on my desk and folded in on itself before loosely tying a piece of twine around the middle into a bow. I then grabbed a variety of fussy-cut stems and tucked three of them (two with larger leaves and one with smaller leaves) into the top of the tissue paper. I also used three stems tucked into the bottom of the tissue paper to look like the end of the flower stems.
I then arranged a selection of my stamped, fussy-cut flowers on top using foam adhesive behind a couple to help create dimension. This was so fun to do and I love how it turned out!
To finish off this card I stamped a phrase from the Lindsey Stamp Set onto a black Essentials Label Sticker, adhered it at the bottom with foam adhesive and added a yellow chipboard heart. The finished card front was then adhered to a plain white card base.
For the second card I cut some white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches and stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. I then cut a circle using a 2.75 inch circle die and handstitched around the edge of the circle. I then backed it with another 4 x 5.25 inch piece of white cardstock using foam adhesive and adhered it to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of the “Spots” paper.
Then it was time to decorate! I used three stems in two different greens and three stamped flowers inside the circle, adding foam adhesive behind the flowers for dimension. I adhered another black Essentials Label Sticker underneath and added the word “Hello” with the Emily Puffy Alphabet Stickers. I stamped the word “friend” onto white cardstock and cut it out. (This stamp actually said “friends” but I made sure not to add ink to the ‘s’ before I stamped.) I adhered the stamped word to the label and finished off with a yellow chipboard heart. The completed card front was then adhered to a plain white card base.
For this last card, I cut some white cardstock to 5.5 x 3.5 inches and used a scallop edge punch along one long edge, before adding some machine stitching. I then adhered this piece to a 5.5 x 4.25 inch piece of “Spots” paper so that the spots were peeking out from underneath the scalloped edge.
I arranged a selection of flowers and stems across the white section of the card making sure each stamped flower was a little different and used foam adhesive behind the three larger flowers in the middle for dimension.
At the bottom is another black label sticker, this time with the phrase “love ya!” from the Lindsey Stamp Set stamped in the centre. I also added a pink chipboard heart. The card front was then adhered to a plain white card base.
These cards really were so fun to put together! The fact that these were made using stamps also means you could make multiple copies of these cards at the same time to have a whole bunch in your stash ready to go whenever you need them. I hope I’ve inspired you to get creating with your stamps to make some cards too!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. Happy stamping!
