Stretch Your Stamps – Floral stamps ( day 7)

Yes I’m missing Day 5 & 6 – yet to catch up with samples for those classes.

For once I can say that I’d some stamps in the category of the day and what better floral stamps than Blossom Art! I didn’t have microfine glitter but I really liked the technique of stamping on glitter so I did the reverse. I stamped and then added glitter to the image. The most important thing I learnt was to seal the glitter – I did that using glossy accents. What you need to do it rub glossy accents all over the glittered image with your finger.

The center of the flower seemed to be getting lost in the glitter so I wanted to bring attention to it. First I picked some rhinestones but the glitter was too overpowering. So I figured that I needed to soften it down and pearls seemed to do the job.


Stamped the image in Shabby Shutters on the CS. Stamped the image in black on white CS. Filled the area with quickie glue pen and then added glitter to it. I did one color and one petal at a time. Also somehow putting glitter on the image doesn’t work as well with me as putting the image to glitter. So I sprinkle some glitter on my non-stick craft mat and then after adding glue to the image, press down the image on the glitter. Added ribbon. Embossed the sentiment in silver on vellum.

  • Stamps: Hero Art Blossom Art, Waltzingmouse Say it loud
  • Memento black ink, Distress ink, Martha Stewart Glitter – bronze and silver, silver embossing powder, adhesive pearls, ribbon.

Absolutely gorgeous ... the pearl center is perfection.
