Floral repeatsPosted: May 12, 2016 Filed under: CAS, Poise, Sunny | Tags: CAS, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 12 Comments
I played with a couple of smaller floral stamps recently to make some clean and simple cards. I guess they could have been even simpler by stamping the flowers once but I still managed to keep plenty of white space. To create both cards I inked the stamps with memento markers, spritzed the stamp with water then stamped on watercolour paper. I did some extra blending on the poppies with a paintbrush and stamped repeat prints without re-inking, which explains the difference in colour intensity.
To stamp a group of three sunflowers I inked only part of the stamp each time so the flowers could nestle into each other without the leaves and stems getting in the way. The layouts are the classic black mat+black sentiment deal.
Stamps: Poise, Special Thoughts, Sentiment Collection, Sunny (PB)
Inks: Memento markers(Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Hot pressed Fabriano watercolour paper, black cardstock
Incredible. There isn’t a stamp you can’t create something just amazing with! Off to search out my single flower stamps that might work…..Thanks for the inspiration!
What a lovely thing to say, thanks. I am happy you’re inspired.
Heather, these are beautiful, and I love the white space and how beautiful these are stamped so simply with an elegant black mat. And they really show off the beautiful sentiments! Love them both! Hugs!
Always inspiring and always gorgeous
Both of these are so pretty Heather! These flowers are beautifully colored and perfectly placed! I love the tiny peek of white mat that gives the card such a classy look!
Both these are truly wonderful! xxx

Two very pretty cards Heather and the repeat stamping works really well and two great sentiments too. x
