Simon Says Stamp | Stamped Floral Patterns. Yippee For Yana Series. Video

Hello friends, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In today’s episode I decided to go back to basics and what that means for me – is creating stamped patterns using individual stamps. I used to stamp all sorts of patterns using my clear stamps in the past and while I still do that from time to time I kind of miss doing it more.

CARDS DETAILS

Today I’m sharing my favorite way to stamp a floral pattern to create several cards. My trick is very simple, instead of stamping a background onto an A2 size card front I stamp it onto a larger sheet. In this case I took a letter sheet of Neenah cardstock and I cut it in half so 5 1/2 x 8 1⁄2” and stamped my floral pattern onto this entire half sheet instead of stamping it onto a card front.

You can also stamp a pattern onto a full letter sheet if you want or even onto a larger paper size if you have larger paper size and than trim it down to A2 card fronts or use that large paper to wrap a gift for example.

You can use a multitude of images and stamp sets to create patterns such as this one. I decided to use the new Bold Flowers stamp set. I would suggest using solid images for your stamping unless you want to do a lot of coloring.

It’s been a long time since I’ve used pigment inks for my stamping so I reached out for the Avery Elle pigment inks for this tutorial. I love to use pigment inks, they are fantastic for ink blending, for letterpress techniques and they are great for stamping, the only downside to these inks is that they take a bit longer to dry, but that is nothing that can’t be fixed with the help of a heat tool.

The colors of inks I picked to stamp today are Mimosa, Orchid, Raspberry, Jungle, Lemongrass and Bamboo. The way I created this pattern is by stamping clusters of images. Each cluster consists of 3 flowers and several leaves.

Once my stamping was done I cut my panel into 2 pieces to create 4 1/4 x 5 1⁄2” card fronts. I also cut one of those on a diagonal to make 2 partial patterns. I also stamped additional flowers and leaves using same colors as before and cut them out using coordinating dies.

I decided I needed to add a skinny strip to my diagonal cut cards to help separate the stamped pattern from the background. I made it by using my pink ink pad and white paper. I used tape to adhere the stamped patterns onto A2 white side folding card bases, I also used tape to adhere the skinny pink strips. To add a bit of dimension to my cards I used foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives to foam mount the die cut flowers and have them go outside the stamped patterns.

I stamped sentiments in black ink – I used Versafine Onyx Black and messages from the Emphatic stamp set. I stamped them either directly onto the patterns or onto the white card base.
I used glue to adhere the leaves and I made sure to shape each leaf with my fingers before adhering it down. Lastly, I used Nuvo Drops in clear and added a bunch of clear drops onto the cards as one finishing touch.
