Lotus Blossom

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I’ve created for my “Thank You” cards for January.  It features the 3-Step Stampin’ Technique using one of the FREE Stamp Sets available from 2015 Sale-A-Bration which begins January 6 through to March 31, 2015.  This Brochure is packed with gorgeous new product which I am going to showcase over the next month or so.  You are able to earn your FREE product by placing an order of $90.00 (plus P&H).

I must admit, this set has been carefully designed, in that each part of the flower has a “tag” to show which direction the stamp should face to get the correct layering lined up.  The sheet has the flower images numbered so you know which stamp to stamp first, etc.008bb-blog

I’ve found with this stamp set, it is best to stamp off once or twice prior to stamping your image.  In saying that, I found it better if I didn’t stamp off at all as it created a deeper effect.

The flower is created by using 2 different ink colours.  In this case I’ve used Melon Mambo & So Saffron, while the stem is in Old Olive.  Actually the stem may be created using the 2-Step Stampin’ Technique, but I’ve only used one of the images.

My flower was stamped direct onto Whisper White Card.

My sentiment comes from the same set & has been stamped in Old Olive Ink.

Once my stamping had been completed, I adhered it to a piece of Melon Mambo Card prior to adhering to the Base Card – Whisper White.

To finish it off, 3 x Pearls were adhered to the top Left Hand Corner & 1 x Pearl to the top of the stem.

A very simple little card, but one that highlights this gorgeous stamp set.  I would love to know what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
