Hello everyone! Hope you’re all well and stay healthy! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I made using some of our grouped layering stamp sets. I used Peony Memories Cardmaking, Rose of Sharon, Floral Bits 1 & 2 and Spring Layered Alphas stamp sets and coordinating dies.
If you haven’t heard about the grouped Layering stamp sets yet, you have to check them out! It is an ingenious layering system, which helps you layer multiple images at the same time. There are coverplate coordinating dies for these stamp sets, which cut the whole panel of stamped images in a single pass through your die cutting machine!
Let’s take a look at my cards!
I stamped the pink peonies in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria hybrid ink, the yellow peonies in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine and the leaves in Crystal Garden Collection inks. After the stamping was done I cut them using the coordinating dies and set them all aside.
To stamp the Spring Layered Alphas I picked Noir for the letters, Soft Garnet for the large flowers and Soft Garden and Hot Tourmaline for the leaves. The small flowers were heat embossed in Rose Gold. I cut all the letters using the coverplate die.
To create the background I white heat embossed the starry confetti from the Confetti Borders stamp set on both sides of an A2 sized white panel and ink blended it in Lemon Drop, Soft Garnet, Soft Garden and Cali Blue.
I then started assembling my card. I mounted the background panel flat on a pink cardbase and arranged the floral clusters. I adhered the leaves flat on the background and raised the flowers using some foam tape. The letters were added with foam adhesives. The small sentiment is from Layered Floral Alpha stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of yellow cardstock and added it to the card. To finish off I scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.
I stamped the Rose of Sharon and the flower of the Floral Bits 2 in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Grand Fuchsia and Spiced Chai. For the Floral Bits 1 I used Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine and Coralline Hybrid ink. For the leaves I used Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Everglade Moss.
I cut the flowers using the coordinating die, arranged them on a piece of A2 sized paper, secured the arrangement with a piece of Press’n Seal wrap and adhered foam tapes on the back of the floral arrangement.
I ink blended Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink on the front of a white cardbase making the perimeter darker than the center and added white splatters. I stamped the sentiment from Rose of Sharon set in Noir and transferred the floral arrangement onto the cardbase. I cut off the excessive area of the floral arrangement and added a few clear Dew drops to finish off the card.
Using the grouped layering stamp sets and coordinating dies you can stamp and cut the floral elements and sentiments only with several steps. I really love to have the finished florals in my stash for my next projects!
Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!
Wishing you a crafty day!
