Creating Panels with Mini Floral Stamps + Video



Hi, there!  It is really cold again today - totally opposite of these spring-like cards.  But, spring is on its way!

Do you have a lot of mini floral stamps?  I realized a lot of my clear stamp sets include tiny flowers.  I also realized I don't use them that often.  So, I wanted to come up with a few different ways to showcase mini florals.

Today, I've got a couple of cards that use mini florals to create panels.  I've also got a video with some tips.



Louisa loves to play with my old wood stamps.  She pretends to stamp things, like the bedroom door and then lays them all out in a line.  I had totally forgotten about this stamp.  I've had it quite awhile and never used it.  I can't imagine why - it's totally adorable!

I thought it would be fun to match the shape of the card to the shape of the stamp.  And then came up with the panel idea, because of all those  mini floral stamps floating around in my head.  



Used simple copic coloring and  matched the colors in the floral panel to the colors I had used for the bunny stamp.



Next up is this oh, so sweet bear and bird card.  You can see I made the panel on this card a little smaller and used it as the backdrop for the banner.



The other difference is that this one was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink for the no-line look.

Here's the video:



Do you notice that you have a lot of mini floral stamps?  I'll be sharing some more ideas to use them soon.  

Have a wonderful week!

    Love the second one too, the cute critter with no line looks adorable!

  10. Oh Lori those are just way too cute, I love your shaped card and that is just perfect for your old stamp that you made look new again! I have been peeling off my wood stamps and applying them to my Misti stamping tool and that has been very helpful and the sticky stays on that I just put them back on the wood mount for storing :) You did a wonderful job with your fillers and matching the heart and carrots in the top stamp. The no line coloring in your second card is just precious as well, love the pretty softness that gave to it, such sweet stamp image!
