More different ways with Spring Flowers........

*This is a BUTTERFLIES & FLOWERS promotion post. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

Morning peeps,

I thought that I would show you today a couple of different cards using the gorgeous Jane Gill  Spring Flower stamp......

Now a lot of people buy a stamp because they like it and then just use it as the whole stamp (like the one I have made below on the crackle background ) but I buy a stamp and then think how else can I use it other than the whole stamp together. So with that in mind when you get your stamps out to have a play with them, have a look and see what you can do with them too....

For this card below I used the Anna-Marie Designs Baby Blue Dottie card for the background.
I stamped a Happy Birthday stamp from my stash with Versafine Onyx black ink and then clear embossed it with Wow powder and then inked  and stamped the Spring Flower Stamp several times all away around the edge of my white card and then clear embossed it.

I coloured the images with pro- markers and then stamped the flower heads on to the blue dottie card and then embossed and cut them out. I then added some 3d foam to the back of them to add some depth to the card......

For the next one I created a crackle background using the fabulous Imagination Crafts Crackle medium. I will using this next month on the class, so stayed tuned for a tutorial on it......

I stamped and coloured the image as before and then paper pieced the flowers but this time with no height to them just straight on top, I also did the buds this time too...... 

Here is a closer look at the flowers......

Well that is all from me for now, don't forget to leave your comments.......

Have a fabulous weekend.....

  1. Love how you've used the stamp in the first card, I'll be looking at my stamps differently from now on!

  2. The paper pieced flowers look beautiful! I love how you've used the stamp on the top card,, stamping it several times round the edge of the square. x

  3. Gorgeous cards, really like the blue one, great use of stamps, thanks.x

  4. two fab cards Lisa....thanks for the tips on the extra use of stamps.....I rarely seem to have the time to sit and do more than make a specific card...need play time! Love the paper piecing and Anna Marie's spotted card.

  5. Both of these are stunning Lisa and I need to remember to look at my stamps in a different way in future. I love the blue and white card as it just pops and looks so elegant.
    And I really love that crackle BG with the beautiful stamp paper piece - both are gorgeous and fabulous! TY for sharing Karen x
