Stamp Focus | Building A Wreath with Marigold And Peony

Today Ksenija is here and I am sharing a wreath card made with Marigold and Peony red rubber stamps set.
How to make a floral wreath card with individual stamps
Marigold and Peony stamps set is a part of the recent release from IndigoBlu and is perfect for making floral cards.

This set contains four individual stamps which are easy to use for building various floral designs. I would like to explain how to easily stamp a perfectly aligned floral wreath.
Building A Wreath with Individual Stamps
To stamp a symmetrical wreath of flowers you will need a square piece of a card stock, a stamp positioning tool, e.g. MISTI, and a masking paper.

How To Make This Card:

  • Place a square piece of a card stock in your stamp positioning tool in the lower left corner and position a flower stamp also in the lower left corner.
  • Stamp the flower down onto a paper in black watercolour friendly ink.
  • Rotate the card panel by 90 degrees counterclockwise and stamp the flower again.
  • Repeat this step twice and you will get four flowers stamped in each corner of the card panel aligned perfectly.
  • Stamp down the flower onto a piece of a masking paper twice and fussy cut out two masks.
  • Mask off two flowers onto a panel with the paper masks and place the panel into your stamp positioning tool.
  • Position a flower stamp between two masked off flower impressions and stamp it down onto the panel.
  • Reposition one of the masks to the third flower and rotate the panel within the stamping tool by 90 degrees counterclockwise and stamp the flower between two masked off flowers.
  • Repeat this step twice to get the full wreath of flowers.

Add shiny accents with IndigoBlu Luscious Pigment Powders
Masking is a great technique for adding details without paper layers. I replaced the masks several times and added leaves and smaller flowers impressions.

I coloured the wreath with watercolour markers and added accents with water diluted Luscious Pigment Powders in Gold and Silver.

To finish off my card I heat embossed the phrase from Floral Fantasy stamps set in fine white powder onto a piece of a black card stock and cut it into three thin stripes.

To assemble the card I adhered the stamped panel to a black card base and popped the sentiment stripes up with a foam tape.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
