One Layer Spring Blooms with Yana

Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!

We often get carried away with elaborate techniques and tricks and the cards we make become rather difficult to copy or mass produce. Today I decided to create a simple and approachable card featuring stamping only.

I picked Spring Bloom stamp set to do most of my stamping and also Bold Banner Greetings stamp set for my sentiment. For my color combo I went with something new. I used Warm Wool, Sweet Nectar, Miami Spice and Siren Song. A rather unusual color combination, but definitely a fresh and fun one to try.

This card features stamped pattern that consist of one image - floral cluster being repeatedly stamped onto the background. I picked one of the large clusters from the Spring Bloom stamp set and stamped it 5 or 6 times to cover the front of my card. Only 3 times if you count full images, and not the little partial impressions.

I didn’t use my stamp positioner for this card and only did my stamping using a clear block as I didn’t feel I needed to use a MISTI or similar tool. The reason I picked this particular image and not something else is the striped detail on the leaves. Since I was making a very simple one layer card I needed to use something that would add additional interest. And those striped textured looking leaves fit the bill perfectly.

I stamped my image several times rotating it on my paper and making sure to leave enough white space for the sentiment and little florals. Overall I stamped it 6 times, but only 3 impressions ended up being almost complete on this card.

Next, while I still had room on my card, I added a sentiment. You could (and probably should) start your stamping with a sentiment, but I planned ahead of time where I wanted my message to be, so I first stamped the other large elements on my card. For my sentiment I went with Hello, Lovely.

Next I added flowers inside the floral cluster and I stamped those using the lighter peach color, Sweet Nectar. Flower centers were stamped in the same Warm Wool color and again I loved how a center was not a solid image, but rather a textured-looking one. I also stamped some additional stems and flower buds in a slightly darker peach, Miami Spice.

Lastly I added little berries in Siren Song ink color. You can skip adding those and go with sequins or enamel dots or some other embellishment for your project, but I wanted to keep this card absolutely one layer so I added stamped berries instead.

Have fun stamping!
