Hello my friends! Today I am sharing another of my favourite stamps that will be retiring. It is Inspiring Iris. It is a two-step stamp but being a photopolymer stamp, it is very easy to line up the stamps.
I originally did a card very similar to this one with my Dorchester gals. Before Covid, I volunteered to do a card class once a month for the ladies at the Dorchester Retirement home. Generally it was the same group of ladies every month and they are a FUN group. I really hope I will be able to get back there again one day, I miss those gals!
Here is the card:
I stamped the leaves of the iris onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Granny Apple Green ink. I then stamped the flower part of the iris on top of the stems using Blushing Bride ink. I don't know if irises come in this colour in real life but I like how they look on my card so I am going with it. After stamping my iris, I cut it out using the Layering Ovals Dies. I matted this oval onto a scalloped oval from the same die set using Blushing Bride cardstock.
I stamped my sentiment in the upper left corner of a piece of Basic White cardstock using Basic Gray ink. I added a strip of DSP from the Sand & Sea DSP package to the lower portion of this cardstock and then added it to a Blushing Bride card base.
I added my ovals to the right side of the card front using dimensionals and added a bow using the Metallic Blushing Bride ribbon.
This is a good card to make when you need a card in a hurry but it is also very pretty. You could use any DSP and just match your card base and flower colours to the DSP for many different options.
What I used for today's card:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed today's card. As I said, it is a quick and easy one to replicate so give it a try.
Stay well and keep creating!
