Hello.... stamper friends. Hope you've been enjoying stopping by and visiting my work? I still ask you not to be shy and let me know if there is something here to inspire your creativity along your path? I know I draw inspiration from other fellow stampers websites.
This particular card idea inspired me when looking at another blog from stamper Mama Dini's Stamperina. (Her link here will help you see a visual.) Dini explained that she purchased a pretty flowered dimensional die cut sheet that you would partly cut out the flowers and then turn the paper over and use a soft surface and then take your stylus pen to the back of your sheet of paper and press into a mouse pad or soft surface while using a circular motion to pull it toward the center of the flower thus, giving it dimension when you view it from the original side or flowered printed side .
I really liked that look. However, not knowing where to purchase the dimensional die cut....I had a light bulb moment and thought....I may be able to make my own flower design with my stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry called Violet Border SFL 34020. I then got creative and stamped the flowers into a pattern I liked and then took my Exacto knife and cut the Pansy's only partly (as Dini's directions explained) and tried to make them appear dimensional with my stylus pen. Decorating the rest of the card just came natural. The raised effect is there however, in my picture it is a bit hard to see. Truly sorry....
I was quite happy with the way it turned out and didn't have to spend any money on any supplies or die cuts. YEA!!! Another happy moment not spending any money for my project.
