Two-Toned Flors Bundle and Framed Florets Dies

Today’s post is about two-step stamping with the Two-Toned Flora stamp set. My card evolved from the double stamped flowers featured here. The Two-Toned Flora stamp set has no sentiments. It includes 12 flower images designed for stamping in two steps. There are 6 flower base layer images and 6 flower detail images. If you look at the three flowers I stamped, you can see how both a base stamp and a detail stamp make one flower image.

  • In the card above, I stamped the large flower with Orchid Oasis ink using the flower base stamp.
  • Then, I stamped the detail image over the flower base with Starry Sky ink (a darker shade in a similar color family).
  • The smaller flower on the right is stamped the same way, using Petal Pink ink for the base and Calypso Coral ink for the detail.
  • The small flower at the bottom of the frame is stamped with the same ink – Fresh Freesia.
  • I stamped the base using Fresh Freesia ink, then stamped the detail using Fresh Freesia ink. The detail in this flower is stamped three times with the ink. (My Stamparatus made this very easy).
  • This process made the detail darker and worked beautifully to highlight the flower detail image.
  • You can use the same process with any color.

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • One look at the “Parts & Pieces” image above, you can see I switched the design a bit from start to finish.
  • I originally used a pattern from the Fancy Flora DSP. When I put the layers and elements together, I thought the patterned paper (although beautiful), took attention away from my flowers. It was an easy fix… I simply removed the patterned paper layer.
  • The card base is Basic White Thick cardstock cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I cut the Starry Sky cardstock layer 3 3/4″ x 4 5/8″.
  • The Basic White top layer measures 3 5/8″ x 4 1/2″. This size is perfect for the oval heart die frame.
  • I die cut the oval frame using Basic White Thick cardstock.
  • The flower cluster is attached with glue.
  • The sentiment is stamped with Orchid Oasis ink and fussy cut.
  • I embellished with a few Orchid Oasis Matte Dots.

So, make the Two-Toned Flora stamp set your “two-step” stamping go to, experiment with dark and light ink shades, die cut the flowers, and create something to send happy thoughts to someone special.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
