Daisy made with the Fun Flower Punch!

Fun Flower PunchYour Stamping Teacher Tips:

    • I do not have the Fringe Scissors, so I had to improvise and handcut each petal. Just snip just before the center.
    • For dramatic effect, heat emboss the Handcarved Background Stamp in White.
    • To keep the look BOLD, use a BOLD sentiment!

Daisy Heart Art Card

While my mantra is clean and simple, quick and easy, sometimes the mood strikes and you gotta make a card that takes a lot longer.  Today’s card, is still clean and simple, but not quick and easy.

White Blended Blooms

White Blended Blooms

Your Stamping Teacher Tips:

  • Keeping to just a neutral color palette, intensifies the Blended Bloom Flower and creates a clean and crisp look.
  • I used Smoky Slate cardstock to stamp the Blended Bloom image.
  • Heat embossing the flower with Black Embossing powder keeps your white craft ink inside the lines.
  • Use your blender pen to paint the White Craft Ink onto your cardstock.
