Hi friends, today I am playing with one of my older sets from one of my favorite companies – Wplus9. They have some amazing floral stamp sets and I am a huge fan of Dawn’s water coloring videos. Today I combined two stamp sets from Wplu9 – Modern Petunias and Petunia builder to create this card.
Inspiration for this card came from my own backyard :-)
Wplus9 Modern Petunias is a set of all outlines images of beautiful petunia flowers whereas Wplus9 Petunia Builder is a layering stamp set of the same flowers. Several of these layered images have corresponding outlined images in the Modern Petunias stamp set. These work really well together, so I decided to combine the two.
I used Altenew inks and stamped several flowers in pink shades and yellow shades. I like how the Altenew cubes come in sets of 4 – these take the guesswork out of selecting inks for layering stamp sets. I used Cherry Blossom set for pink petunias and Summer Afternoon for the yellow ones. I also used Tropical Forest to stamp several leaves. before using matching dies to cut out all these flowers and leaves.
I arranged all the flowers and leaves in a cascade on a pre-made card. I picked up these cards at local Joann’s store and use them often instead of creating a cardbase myself. These have some embossed designs on each of them and the dots on this particular card looked really nice with the floral design. So I just went with it. I used foam squares and scrop tape to adhere all these images.
For my sentiment I stamped “Hello Dear” using Caramel Toffee – this color is from the Summer Afternoon ink set and it’s the same one I used for outlines on the yellow petunias. This sentiment is from Wplus9 Modern Anemones stamp sets. I cut out a small banner tail on one end before using foam squares to tuck it in between some flowers. Finally I added some clear droplets with multi medium matte to finish this project.
