It's good to be back at the computer writing another blog post. I should probably do this more often!
Today I'm focusing on one particular stamp set which I don't see around the place much. I decided to create some cards with it and see where it leads me! This stamp set is called Always Flowers and it's from Pink Fresh Studio. It's not available on their website, but you can purchase it from Scrapbook.com if you wish.
Up first is a gorgeous square card based on the corner floral from the set.
I used some glitter pens in blue, silver and even green on select sections of the stamped images. Then I matched those colours with my markers and coloured the rest in. I love the bit of shine those sections have. Of course it was perfect to pair it up with my Nuvo Drops, and use embossing powder of the sentiment which came from the stamp set itself - another example of how you can use the #onestampwonder tag.
I stamped two of these images and fussy cut them out. I then took a vertical rectangular card and removed most of the front panel, which I replaced with Acetate. I love this trick, you can have dimension and interest while actually using less products or stamps - just see through!
The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Fresh Peonies set.
This card is quite small in size but I think you can easily change it to make a perfect tag as well.
Lastly, I wanted to try a new design for a card, and I stumbled upon the tri-fold Zig-Zag design by Sue Vine which I immediately wanted to try. This uses a standard 12x12 cardstock but fits into the exact same size as a standard letter! Each fold has a white panel and I've layered a number of fussy-cut small stamps from the Always Flowers stamp set onto the panel.
These tri-fold cards are gorgeous to open up and have so much potential.
I do like how i've used one set, but different colours on each card. It makes it all a bit different and interesting.
This design was great fun to make and I immediately made another one... still to come!
That's it for my cards using the Pink Fresh Studio set. I hope this inspires to open up your stash and find a stamp set that's not used often, and create something with it.
That's it for today! Let me know of any great cards using this set you've seen, I'm always up for creating more.
Until next time,
