Simon Says Stamp | One Layer Floral Cards 4 Ways. Video (Blog Hop + Giveaway)

Floral stamping is what got me hooked up on stamping on handmade cards in the first place and it’s kind of been awhile since I last just stamped some simple one layer cards without any tricks or techniques. I’ve missed that and decided to stamp a few super simple cards today.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

As always, I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

I picked So Loved stamp set by Simon Says Stamp for my cards as this is one of the perfect stamp sets for beginner and experienced stampers alike. It’s a large 6×8 set with many beautiful big sentiments as well as some bold florals. Most images in here have a solid and an outline layer giving me a whole lot of options when stamping.

The colors I used for my cards are the following: Rosie Cheeks, Hollyhock, Rose Apple (later replaced with Watermelon on some cards), Catkin, Cloudy Sky, Seafoam and Sunkist.

I decided I was going to go old school and stamp using my clear blocks only and not use my stamp platform. Why? Well, because when you use a stamp platform while you do get better results, there’s no doubt there, you also get slowed down. I didn’t want to spend twice as much time stamping these using a MISTI, I wanted to get things done and I wanted them done quickly.

I stamped 4 types of cards/layouts using same images & ink colors. All of these are very similar but also different just a bit. Be sure to watch my video for details and close ups!
