Hello everyone, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has just released seven brand new stamp sets! One of the new sets is the gorgeous Dazzling Dahlia! The flower is huge! I knew it was big, but it didn't dawn on me just how big until it arrived. It is gorgeous all colored up, but sometimes we just need a quicker card. So, I decided to showcase some ways to use this flower without coloring it.
My first card was inspired by some red and white cards I saw on Instagram recently. They were so striking and I knew I wanted to try it out with this new set. I found a piece of red pattern paper in my stash and paired it with real red ink. I stamped the flower onto a slightly off white card base and stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the same cardstock. I die cut along the edge of the pattern paper with a scallop edge die. Next, I popped the pattern paper piece up with foam tape along the top edge. Finally, I punched two holes in the sentiment strip, tied some red string into a bow and popped up along the left edge.
For my second card, I wanted to do a variation of my first card. I started by finding a scrap of pretty pattern paper and coordinating cardstock. I settled on garden green and matching ink. I heat embossed the flower on the green panel with Versamark and white embossing powder. I decided to die cut the green panel and mount on the same card base as my first card. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Mash-up in green ink and assembled in the same way as above.
So there you have it, two quick and easy cards using the gorgeous Dazzling Dahlia. Love this flower!
