Zingy Lotus Blossom

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The Lotus Blossom stamp set from Stampin' Up! has been sat on my desk for almost a month and while I've used a few of the sentiments in the set on other cards, I've been a bit apprehensive of using the flower stamps! So totally silly, I know! All that changed this morning and I spent a few hours playing and you know what? I LOVE it!

I've seen so many great designs created with the set, but I thought I'd start of by creating a simple card using only the stamps in the set and a couple favorite punches...

Card: Whisper White and Tangelo Twist
Ink: Tangelo Twist and Pear Pizzazz
Tools: Bracket Label and Decorative Label punches

Stamp the three step blossoms onto a spare piece of Whisper White, stamping off once for the second and third layers and fussy cut (this is quicker than you might think!).
Stamp the two step stems onto the bottom of a panel of Whisper White and layer this onto a Tangelo Twist panel then onto the card base.
Attach the flowers with a few glue dots.
Stamp sentiment onto Whisper White and punch with the Bracket Label. Layer onto a Tangelo Twist Decorative Label and attach above the blossoms.
