Bunches of flowers

These floral outline stamps make a quick and easy card.  It’s easy to layer them by using a simple mask:  stamp the image on a re-positionable note and cut the image out.  When you’ve stamped your first image, cover it with the mask and stamp an overlapping image.  I keep my masks in the plastic box the stamp sets come with, because a little bit of Dotto will refresh the “stickiness” of the mask for many more uses.  You can use scrap paper and dotto with the same results, but make sure the paper you use for the mask is lighter than cardstock weight or you’ll have gaps around the edges of your mask.


  • Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and a retired sentiment
  • Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie and Apricot Appeal Classic Ink pads
  • Very Vanilla, Dusty Durango and Apricot Appeal (sorry, it looks kinda yellow) card stock
  • Pumpkin Pie narrow grosgrain ribbon and Scallop Edge punch

The Stampin’ Up! color families make it so easy to design a monochromatic card.  It’s one of the things that sold me on Stampin’ Up! right from the start.  It would be simple to change this color scheme into pinks, reds, golds, lavenders, even blues and greens if your flower favorites run avant garde.
