It’s time for a Delicate Dahlias Mash Up, because I love this stamp set, and I love mash ups where new products meet old products.
For my previous two cards, I only used the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. To show you how versatile it is, I’m bringing in three more stamp sets: Dragonfly Garden, Banner Year, and All Squared Away. How’s that for a mash up?
Once I started playing with Delicate Dahlias, I didn’t want to stop. So I went all in for this card. Don’t worry, it’s still a pretty easy card to make.
- 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″) and 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scrap – Basic White
- 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ – Basic Black
- Scrap of Melon Mambo
- Mini Cut and Emboss
- Layering Circles dies
- Penned Flowers dies
- Heat Tool
- White Emboss Powder
- Checks & Dots embossing folders
- Using Melon Mambo ink, stamp the large flower on the small layer of Basic White cardstock. Next, stamp the dragonfly and the three large dots using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add smaller dots. (I used the pen tip end.)
- After that, use VersaMark ink to stamp the sentiment on the Melon Mambo scrap. Next, pour on the White Emboss powder then melt it with the Heat Tool.
- Then die cut the sentiment, the Basic Black mat for the sentiment, and the scalloped border for your stamped flowers and dragonflies.
- Now you can emboss the right side of the card base using the Dots embossing folder.
- After die cutting and embossing, adhere the sentiment circles and the scalloped borders to the stamped flowers and dragonflies. Then using Tombow or Seal, adhere the stamped layer to the card base leaving about 1/4 inch of the card base showing on the left.
- When that’s done, use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the stamped layer on the card base.
