5th Avenue Floral

stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral
Do you always stamp on white paper? Check out today's card, the image is stamped in Whisper White Ink (#101731) on a colored background. Aren't these colors great? Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Elegant Eggplant.These bright colors just scream SPRING! (which I am really ready for!). The image is from a stamp set called 5th Avenue Floral (#113734) and due to the size of the image I used the 1 3/8" square punch (#119877) for the colored squares. The white square is 3" on each side and the black piece is a 3 1/4" square. I should also point out that since the flower is so close to the edges of the squares I did use the Stamp-a-ma-Jig (#101049) to get it lined up. I could not stamp without this tool. It is essential for getting images placed exactly where you want them to be. At $11.95 this is one of the best stamping tools you'll ever invest in! Guaranteed!

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370 wood mount only). Remember to stamp first, then punch - so you can look through the hole on the bottom of the punch and be sure its centered. For the layers on the sentiment for this card I used the Large Oval Punch (#119855) and the Scallop Oval Punch (#119856).

This card would work with any sentiment and the sentiment could be stamped right on the card face itself.
