Mix & Match those Flower Punches for this Great Dimensional Birthday Card

JenniferBig Shot, Birthday, CardsLeave a Comment

Over the last couple catalogs, I’ve collected many of the flower stamp sets and matching punches from Stampin’ Up!  Because you know how much of a sucker I am for stamp sets that match punches – it makes it so easy!  So, I was playing around and started combining my different flowers and it turns out they look pretty great together.  Check it out –

Tips for this project:

  • Stamp the flower image with the same color ink as your cardstock (in this case, Strawberry Slush) before stamping to create a custom look.
  • Mix in between your layers flower punches out of Whisper White cardstock and sponge with the same color ink you used on the other flowers to create a pop of color and make your flower layers distinct.
  • Use a Bone Folder to curl up the petals of your flower to help make it be more 3D and come to life!
  • The Window Frame framelits make the perfect opening to allow some of your patterned paper peek through behind your flower and frame your flower.
  • Cut your patterned paper to 1/4″ larger than your Whisper White cardstock to give an extra coordinating border.

I often get asked if I recommend purchasing stamp sets in wood mount, clear mount, or photopolymer – and often I say it depends on the type of stamp set for me.  With these flowers and matching punches, I know that 90% of the time, I’m going to be stamping and punching out my flowers and so I optimized for Easy and Speed in stamping.

–So I buy them in wood mount

This is because I know that I won’t need precision placement most of the time and it makes it easy to grab and go when I want to stamp, and especially if I want to punch out a few different flower images from the same set.  I don’t have to clean my stamp and change the block between stamping, they are all ready to go and I can just do all my stamping at one time and then do all my cleaning.  Easy, peasy, done!
