What about creating some fun textures using the grid stamp on Sending Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp? Yesterday I shared the idea on Facebook and people seems to like it so I decided to give it a special mention on my blog post today.
If you haven’t seen my previos post here check out the image below.
Sending Flowers Stamp Set has be designed to stamp creative handmade envelopes. I never had a stamp like this one in my stash. It is soooooo unique!
When I used the set for first time I couldn’t avoid thinking in mix and match its images with large floral stamps from others sets. I also thought of making cards with any of the 13 individual images in the set or using some of the stamps to add decorative elements to my projects.

I have been also playing with More Spring Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp (this week I’ll be sharing a daily project made using the set) and I made the card in this post applying a design idea by Therese Calvird on Pinterest here! Actually, after I saw her card design I have been using the 3D die cut frame to add interest to very simple compositions.
This is a C6 ( A6 ) card and to make it I stamped the images using Real Red Ink by Stampin’ Up! and the leaves with Garden Green Ink by Stampin’ Up! Using a Nuvo Water Brush I pull off the ink from the edges of the images to completely fill them with that colour.
I also used a Derwent red watercolor pencil to draw lines on the flower petals and a Uni-ball black pen to add black dots around the flowers pistils. I splattered the piece using Salty Ocean Distress ink and I stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Little One Stamp Set then I die cut the panel. I assembled the card fallowing instructions provided here.
That’s all! I hope you enjoy the projects today. Do not hesitate in ask any questions or leave a comment. I would love to heard from you!
