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

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!
