Petite Pairs, Flower Patch

Tips & Tricks to Note

    • If you don’t have a frame die, you can accomplish this technique using two different sizes of dies, one for the outside of the frame and one for the center. Try mixing and matching shapes for fun!
    • Keep your frame masks for future projects by saving them on a piece of plastic—leftover packaging works great for this
    • Have a stamp set with multi-piece images… and you aren’t quite sure how it’s supposed to work? Try Googling the name of the stamp set! You’re likely to come up with loads of examples of how others have used the set to create scenes, flower clusters, and more.

Directions

      1. Fold a 21 x 15cm Whisper White CS in half creating a 10.5 x 15cm cardbase
      2. Position 2 die cut banners from the Banner Framelits, the smaller inside the larger, on a piece of copy paper.  Secure the frames using washi tape and die cut through the big shot
      3. Separate the three resulting pieces:  the outside negative frame, the positive frame die cut and the center banner.  Reserve the positive frame ato help you position your negatives and for use on  future projects
      4. Center the positive frame die cut onto your Whisper White Cardbase.  Using dotto adhesive center the banner, and next it in the center of the positive frame die cut.  Remove the positive frame die cut, and set it aside.  You now have a masked banner frame on your card
      5. Randomly stamp the flower image in Crisp Cantalope and the center flower using Calypso Coral.  Randomly stamp the flower image again but with Coastal Cabana Ink and the center flower using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink. Stamp the next size flower with Crushed Curry Classic ink. Stamp the smallest flower with Old Olive Classic Ink
      6. Fill a Stampin’ Sprizer with Rubbing Alcohol and a few drop of Pear Pizzazz re inker. Spray onto your card front
      7. Remove the masks
      8. Stamp the greeting in the center using Stazon Black ink.  You’re Done!
