How to Stamp Blossoms in Bloom with Stamparatus:
I was making 60+ of these cards so I used the Stamparatus for 2 reasons: 1) create these cards quickly, and 2) if I didn’t stamp it perfectly I was able to ink the image again for great results every time!
Step 1: ink the large floral image from Blossoms in Bloom with Seaside Spray ink
Step 2: add some Night of Navy ink to the center of each flower with a Sponge Dauber
Step 3: press down on Whisper White cardstock, lift Stamparatus plate and check for good image, press down again or ink again if needed
Step 4: on side plate of Stamparatus, add small flowers and leaves, ink in Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green, press down and stamp over blue flower image
(not shown: I moved the small flowers and leaves and stamped them again for a total of 4 small flowers and 4 leaves total)
Step 5: mount flower center (dots) on clear block and ink with Night of Navy ink
Above & Below: I decided that I could get twice as many cards if I used a card design with a tall narrow image, so I cut my Whisper White stamped panels in 1/2 and made double the number of cards!!
Funny Story: After I created these a couple weeks ago, I showed them to my friend Kurstan, and she said, “Oh that’s the Jennifer McGuire technique”…. umm.. it is? Sure enough.. she had a similar idea on her blog recently! I was just trying to get twice as many cards for customer thank you cards and I wanted to use this fun fold idea.. it worked perfect!! 🙂
Tips for using the Stamparatus: If you have not used the Stampin’ UP! Stamparatus before, check out my additional tips on my Stamparatus playlist HERE!
My supplies for this Blossoms in Bloom card included greetings from the new Forever Fern stamp set, stamped in Mango Melody on Stitched Shape circles. I used a Night of Navy circle (you can punch 2″ circles or use the Layering Circle dies to get desired size) to mat the White circle before adding them to my cards.
I first saw this fun fold card idea at a retreat I attended last February hosted by Amy Combes. I love this idea! I also added some Bumblebee Gingham ribbon to this card, and some new Misty Moonlight enamel dots.
