Creating a Floral Background

For this month’s release of the new Stitched Scalloped dies, I wanted to showcase all the ways you can use these dies to create wonderful layers on a card front.  To break it up a bit, I added a layer of background stamping in a unique way……


I started off with a white card stock panel and stamped the floral layer from Hero Arts’ Color Layering Hydrangea stamp set right in the middle.  I followed up by stamping it again right next to the first flower, kind of fitting it in like a puzzle piece.  A stamp platform works really well for this.  I used my new favorite summer-y ink pad from Lawn Fawn–Forget Me Not.  I continued to stamp the flower all around until I filled the panel.

When I was finished, I took one of the Stitched Scalloped Square dies and used it to cut out the center of the stamped panel.

I backed that panel with a piece of gray card stock I cut using one of the Never Ending Square dies.

I layered everything over a note card I made using woodgrain cardstock and added another white scalloped square over the top layers.  A sentiment strip and some sequins finished it off.

Those bright blue hydrangeas remind me of summer at the sea and those layers add such great texture.
