Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Blog Hop Day 1: Flower Block 3

Welcome to Day 1 of March Blog Hops, today we are featuring
Flower Block 3
 

 
This is the third set in our Flower Blocks series.  These bold and beautiful blooms make the perfect focal image and can be easily paper-pieced or colored.


  • Stamp set includes 4 images and 4 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 8"
  • The images measure approximately 2 5/8" x 2 5/8"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland

This is the project I have for you today, I love all the flowers in this set. I spent some time coloring this beautiful rose in red, isn't it gorgeous?

Here are the details:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Die-cut background from patterned paper and adhere it to card.
  • Stamp image on White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, then color it with markers, I used Spectrum Noir.
  • Cut image, leaving about .25" on each side, mat it to a red piece of card stock and add stitches, add dimensional and add it to card.
  • Die cut label and stamp sentiment in Jet Black Archival Ink. Double mount dimensionals and add it to card.
  • Cover rose with 3D Crystal Lacquer and sprinkle clear glitter. Set aside to dry.
  • Finally add few green sequins.
