Spring Flowers that Really Pop

Hi DeNami friends,

Easter and spring go together. New life, flowers and bright colors are a great change from the cold of winter. Here in Washington state, we have been enjoying some sunshine and it finally feels like winter is behind us.

Spring is my favorite season because of the newness of the weather change and anticipation of the outdoor adventures to come. Hello, DeNami Design friends! Lisa P. here to show you how popping up parts of your stamped images can be a fun and easy way to add a little pizzazz to your creations.

I have two Springtime cards to share with you today that demonstrate this technique. The first is an A1-sized Easter card I created using CL-GD003 Spring Flowers 1.

I stamped the images on my focal panel. Then, I stamped the flower portion of the daffodil onto a separate piece of cardstock, colored it with markers, cut it out, and adhered it over my focal panel image with a 3D foam square. I love how this special little detail adds dimension and interest to an otherwise simple card. Here’s a closer look:

For my second example, I used the same technique to create a colorful birthday card.

I repeatedly stamped the Wavy Stem Trio and topped the stems with the little daisy image from CL-GD003 Spring Flowers 1. I added a picket fence die and grass border punch. Then, I stamped the flowers three times onto a separate piece of cardstock, colored them with markers, cut them out, and adhered them with foam squares on top of three of the flowers on my focal panel. Note: For this example, I cut around the flowers instead of fussy cutting directly on the stamped lines of each image. It’s much simpler, and it looks just as lovely (I think). Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my creations for today and feel inspired to try out this simple technique!

Happy Stamping!

Love both cards, Lisa! You're right, those blooms look great without cutting on the lines--thanks for the tip!
