Two Tone Flora - fabulous cards Part 1.

 Two-Tone Flora stamp set

This was our #stampsetoftheweek from 20 March 2023 and it really didn't disappoint. We began with some simple stamping, progressing during the week - adding the dies and the papers and ended with a stunning stamped one sheet wonder which made 4 cards. This stylish set of photopolymer stamps from Stampin' Up! is in our current mini catalogue (Jan-April 2023).

Simple stamped card to get started

We started with this simple card for our #coffeeandcard sessions.  There was a choice of the deckled rectangle or a stitched circle die-cut, both of which were mounted onto a backing paper and then onto one of our notecards.  In the sample below, I used Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party inks.

Making it larger

From here we progressed onto some standard sized cards, but with a similar layout - this time we used a circle die from the Stylish Shapes and I chose some bright colours as you can see. These were Mango Melody and Sweet Sorbet. The sentiment on the cards below is from the Best Family Ever stamp set. The narrow banner die is also from the Stylish Shapes set of dies.

Flowers galore!

There are so many flowers in this set, so I stamped samples out onto card for everyone to see the different types. You can use two different colours of ink, or you can use 1 colour and stamp off to get a lighter version. Here are some of the sample flowers.

Stepping up and adding dies

From here I went on and used some of the flower dies from the matching die set. In the card below I stamped 3 of the flowers (Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape), and the foliage (Pear Pizzazz) and then die cut them before adding to an embossed background of Basic White Card. This folder is part of a set of three new embossing folders available in our online store.

This layer was then added to my Melon Mambo cardbase, and the inside stamped to match. You can see the video of how this card was made by clicking on the image below.


I really hope you like the first few projects we made with this fabulous photoolymer stamp set. Watch out for our next post to see more dies in use and the stunning one sheet wonder, which made 4 cards.
