New dimension for my favorite stamp!




This card was made for the Ippity challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. This weeks challenge was to use no sentiments on your card. A bit of a challenge indeed, but I pulled through! I had seen a punch that makes a similar design where the flower petals are only punched halfway. So this gave me the idea to try it with this Ippity stamp from the Now and Always set, my fav! I stamped it onto the cardstock, made a mask, then stamped the other flower, made a mask, then stamped the leaves. I used my craftknife to cut around each petal, making sure not to go all the way down it. This took some time to do, but I love how it came out. You can see what it looks like on the inside of the card. Before cutting, I colored in the flowers and leaves with my watercolor pencils. Hope this inspires some of you to give this a try! Thank you for looking in!
