Simon Says Stamp | Tips for stamping floral patterns. Video

A few weeks ago I asked a question on my blog about stamping patterns and was surprised to learn that a lot of my readers never stamp patters using stamps. I love to stamp all sorts of patterns so that inspired me to do a detailed video and share my tips for stamping floral patterns for cards.

CARD DETAILS

To stamp my patterns today I used Simon’s Wild Beauty stamp set, a few colors of ink and Copic markers (I have all colors listed at the end of this post).

I started by creating a mask for the largest flower in my cluster. I am not really a big fan of masking, but masking really lets you get a whole lot more out of your stamps. See THIS card for example, same stamps, but no masking – totally different look.

I stamped all of my image outlines using Simon’s Intense Black ink. This is a Copic-friendly ink and I knew I would be using Copic markers to color some of the images as a few flowers and none of the leaves in the Wild Beauty stamp set have matching layers to add color. You can however use Copics, or watercolor or colored pencils to color the entire thing.

I was struggling a bit with colors for my card, so I created a practice sheet where I stamped several clusters and tried different color variations. If you plan stamping something similar I hope this will be of use to you:

Before I filmed my video and created the card I share above I stamped a test pattern where I experimented with image placement and tested how many and which images I wanted to use, you can see details below:

I used a simple Hello Beautiful sentiment for both of my cards and heat embossed it in Hero Arts White embossing powder. I also added several clear sequins and droplets to finish my projects.
