Stamping Flowers

Two Sheena Douglas stamps four different cards

This first card was mat and layered using the same
colours as used in the water colouring.

Stamped using Versafine black onyx, I then used my
very old set of water colours that I came across in a
box and hey presto they are great!

I edged the white card with a gold ink pad to
frame and used gold chalk just to dull down
around the flowers very lightly.

A green silk ribbon was then knotted in one corner
and adhered to the mat and layers at a jaunty angle.

A Marianne die was then used on the same green
card stock for foliage which adds interest to the
card without over shadowing the main image.
A piece of cream card stock was cut using and Xcut
die and a sentiment stamped onto it again in
Versafine black onyx ink and the edges inked
in green to match the overall colour scheme.

This card was made using a poppy stamp and
water coloured in the same way as above.

Red chalk was rubbed around the poppy lightly and a red
ink pad was rubbed on the edged of the white card
to frame the image. 

A vine die was used and cut into two smaller sections 
and glued into opposing corners of the stamped 
image to add further interest. 
The image was then layered on to the same dark green 
card stock used for the vine and foliage you see.

Red pearlescent card was mat and layered
and put through a Tri-emboss folder of leaf
patterns prior to adhering to 6" x 6" white card blank.

I used a computer sentiment again rubbed in red
chalks and edged in red ink.

Paper flowers were then cut and inked in the same
red tones and a black glitter centre added to look
like a poppy.

 This looks better in real life rather than this photo.

This card was the simplest of all four made.

I mat and layered black card with silver faded card
for the base layers on to A5 white card blank.

Added my stamped poppy as before but added a
polka dot green/white ribbon again layer on to
black card to frame.

Dark green foliage and a stamped sentiment in a
half circle.

I used two different coloured raffia papers
for the ribbons here to make it look
like a tag and mounted on to beige patterned
paper and light green mat and layered
  5" x 7" white card blank.

Paper flowers with glittered centres
and different shades of green foliage
was cut using punches.

Cream card was cut with an Xcut die,
stamped sentiment and put through
the Tri-embossed leaf folder.

  1. All of your cards are very pretty. I love how they use the stamped image and the die cuts in so many different ways. I am hoping that this is the blog entry for Simon Says Stamp. Would love for you to link our challenge blog to your post if it is. Thank you for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
