This week myself and Natalie's theme is Floral Fantasy.
All over the craft magazines are the silhouette flower stamps under a flower line stamp. So I thought - How can I make my own without costing a fortune?
So I hit on the idea of using my good old funky foam. I'm sure you all have some stashed away wondering what to do with it! So I firstly stamped the Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flowers in Stazon onto the funky foam, then cut them out, making sure that I cut them out slightly bigger than the outline. I then used the packaging from my Spellbinders and glued the foam flowers onto squares of the plastic to give them a base.
I then used some bubble wrap and inked this up in two colours of Memento green. I then used my brayer and rolled the inked bubble wrap over the white cardstock.
I then used memento inks in lady bug and cantaloupe and inked up the foam flowers and stamped them onto the white cardstock. I then stamped the flower stamp over this in black Stazon. The stalks and leaves I stamped from another set I had and added a bit of water to colour them in.
The sentiment is from the new Heartfelt Creations Pad backed with brown card and a Martha Stuart edge punch. This is all double sided cardstock and is delicious! Treat yourself you won't be disappointed. I then went around the edge of the card in memento peanut brittle. Very simple and easy to adapt for any stamps you have.
