Here are a couple of cards I have made using the stamp below. I really like this stamp as it can be used in many ways which I hope to explore, and can be used for just about any occasion.
I stamped the card all over before creasing it and folding, you could flatten a card blank and stamp it in the same way.
I stamped extra images for the feature panel or topper, I used the same ink and white card which shows what you can do with one stamp and ink pad, and I cut out the panel and a slightly bigger one in gold then blue to use as mats under the white card. I cut a small rectangle of the blue card for the gold peel off sticker.
I used double sided tape (DST) for all gluing.
This design would also look nice with the flower stamped in white ink on blue card I think as a mirror image, and I would normally stamp a greeting too but I started out with peel offs which are great if you don't have a lot of stamps and are easy to use.
The second card is more 3d, I stamped an extra flower and cut round the image leaving the outer line, then stuck that over the first flower with a foam pad to give it depth. It is also covering up a smudge on the flower underneath - and that is one little trick for recovering disasters but also looks nicer than the flat version I think.
I have been card making since 2004, after being inspired by a friend who made her wedding stationery I came across Blade Rubber Stamps while working in London and bought a few bits, then I was hooked! Now I have a craft room full of stuff. I have always crafted things for nearly as long as I can remember - card making filled a need to make and finish things in very little time, and be able to give a little happiness to friends and family. I became a Granny in 2012, it is great! I am a qualified Management Accountant and I took early retirement from the Civil Service, and haven't looked for work since. I am challenge coordinator, DT member and point of contact for the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, which is an unpaid job but fun.
By the way I moderate all comments so they don't appear right away!
I have started this blog to tell you what I have discovered about crafting. This is not everything there is to know as I am sure I still have a lot to learn and I find new ideas all the time, but I have been card making since 2004 so have picked up a bit of knowledge along the way and encountered pitfalls too.
If I get anything wrong please let me know and I will change it.
I wanted to keep this separate from my main blog so you don't have to search through any chit chat and trivia.
I have shown labels at the side of the blog so if you can't see what you want check and click on the label to take you there. I will be building this blog up on different topics gradually. I hope it helps someone and I would love to know if it helped you.
I have started gathering links to tutorials that I come across too, and forums where you can get information.
