For me, it started with a single hydrangea stamp. . . And then it all went downhill from there! In my seemingly endless collection of flower stamps there are lilies, chrysanthemums, tulips, roses, pansies, daffodils, waterlilies, the aforementioned hydrangea and now orchids! And, I know I left off about eight other floral stamps that I own, but don't even know the type of flower they are!
Yes, flower stamps are among some of the most popular stamps, and, just when you think you have every flower, oh dear, the garden grows. . . and grows. . . and grows.
The base of this A2 size card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. The first matted layer is Whisper White paper that has a beautiful stitched scallop border thanks to my favorite dies by Gina Marie Designs. I stamped the orchid stems and leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink and the sentiment in Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
I heat embossed the orchids with Whisper White Stampin' Emboss powder on Calypso Coral cardstock. I stamped the orchid inside (aka, the "pistil") using Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock. I stamped the seeds in Tuxedo Memento Black and die cut the pistils before adhering them to the center of the large orchids using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
P.S. - After a little further research, I can say I am also the proud owner of poppy, calla lilies, hibiscus, daisy and dahlia stamps too!
