Nothing says spring like flowers. My very first Stampin' Up! stamp set was flowers. If you would look through my collection of stamp sets, the majority of them would be flowers or nature related - don't know why, they just call to me and I usually answer.
Looking for elegant and easy? Look no further than the People Like You stamp. This individual stamp is available in the Occasions Mini for a mere $12.95. The great thing about this stamp is that the design truly does all of the work for you. The line drawing, when embossed is amazing to behold. A photo isn't a true reflection of the beauty of this project.
The card stock used in this project is Rose Red, Daffodil Delight - are you seeing the theme here - and topped off with Wild Wasabi for a bit of spring green. On the Rose Red used for the base of the card, I stamped the floral image around the edge of the card stock with Versamark ink.
I started by inking my stamp with Versamark and stamping onto a piece of Whisper White card stock that had been given a good rub down by the embossing buddy. I covered my image with white embossing powder and hit it with the heat gun - wow, that's pretty. Next, out came my blender pen and giving my ink pad a little squeeze - I do love those little guys- I picked up the ink from my ink pad lid and colored my image. Another wonderful thing about this stamp design is that it builds in the shaded and accented areas which is a great thing for those who are not yet comfortable with coloring.
I restamped the sentiment on Wild Wasabi card stock, embossed it, trimmed it by using the decorative label punch and popped that sweet saying onto the main panel with dimensionals.
The last thing to do was to layer the card stock and tah-dahhh, a beautiful, quick and easy spring flower ready to be delivered to a recipient in need.
