How to Use Solid Stamp Florals

Hey crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a card I made using the Clovers and Blooms Stamp Set from the January 2023 Club Sursee! This stamp set is available for purchase outside of the subscription now, so you can get yours today!!

Using floral stamps that are completely solid is personally outside of my comfort zone! If you know me, I love to color in outlined images much more than using solid stamps! So, this set was a fun challenge for me! I wanted to share how I created this card with you!

First, I picked my color palette. This is (in my opinion) the make or break moment when it comes to using solid stamps. I used the Free Download Color Wheel from Catherine Pooler to help me make this decision! If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you need to! It’s a life saver!!

So, I’ve chosen Limoncello, Tiara, Pucker Up, Melon Ice, and Minted. Then, I just go crazy with stamping them! I make sure for each color, I have a large and a small option. Having too many flowers and leaves is NOT a problem. It’s better to have a full bouquet than one that looks bare!

Next, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and then start laying them out on my card panel. This is super time consuming for me, but it’s probably not for everyone! I just move them around until I feel like it’s looking good! With this card, I’m also planning around my sentiment. When that is the case, I lay my stamp down where I think I’m going to want it so that I can visual it.

Once I get my flowers arranged how I like them, I TAKE A PHOTO with my phone! That way, I can use that as a guide for positioning them once I’ve got glue and 3D foam squares on them!

Once I take my photo, I leave my sentiment stamp where it is and place my card panel in my MISTI. I stamp my sentiment with Midnight Ink. Then, I start assembling my bouquet again, with glue and 3D foam squares! Phew! Good thing I have that photo to look back to! The last step is to add some black dots with any black marker!

Well, that wasn’t too hard! I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!! Xx, Amanda
