Hello! It is Marika here and I would like to wish you all Happy New Year!
Firstly, I did a special post before Christmas and asked if one of you would like to receive a card from me. I was so surprised by the response, it was so wonderful, thank you all! You gave me such a warm Christmas gift.
I randomly chose the recipient with a help of random number generator. Random number given to me was the number of 55, and the 55th commenter was DIANE HANSON. Diane has so kindly accepted my request to receive some happy mail from me, I’ll deliver it to the post office first thing tomorrow! Thank you, Diane! Hopefully you’ll like it and it gives you a smile!
For about a year ago, I got an honour to Guest Design on the Altenew blog for the first time and on the second post I made this card HERE with Whimsical Flowers. When I started to make videos, I was asked to made that into a video. I finally got it to work, I hope you find it still helpful although it is a year late.
So this is my first video after the three months long break, I was a bit rusty while filming and editing, so please bear with me. You can watch my tutorial here or in HD in Youtube. Hopefully you find it helpful.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have an amazing day!
Hi, it’s Therese here and today I have some simple stamping and shading fun using the beautiful Whimsical Flowers and their matching dies. I have also taken a sentiment from Birthday Greetings and created a video so you can watch the process and see how it comes together.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here! Today I’m sharing a quick card with a very simple stamped background created with the Whimsical Flowers stamp set. I used a light tone of mint for my flowers to make a delicate backdrop for a big gold glitter initial letter.
I added some black ink splatters along with a sentiment and few stars from the Baby Zoo set before I attached the initial letter with foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by today!
We have a lovely treat for you- our guest designer, Marika, is joining us once again with a stunning set of cards!
Today we are focusing on the Whimsical Flowers set.
This set was inspired by a number of elements from nature:
Trumpet Creepers – took this picture during a morning run
Cotton Plants – image source
Amoeba – image source
Each image in this set has a solid and an outline part. They can be used together or separately, giving more options for designs.
In the following two cards, only the solid images were used:
For this card, the three large solid flowers were stamped on a 4″ x 5.5″ white card base to create a background pattern. The centers of the flowers were colored with a Copic marker. A piece of vellum, patterned paper, creame card stock, and silver glitter paper were then layered on top of the card base. The sentiment is from our ‘Many Thanks‘ set.
Once again, the solid images were used to stamp a floral ensemble on a 4″ x 5.5″ white card base. Two shades of pink and purple were used to get a gradient look. The centers were filled in with a Versamark pen and then embossed with gold embossing powder. The sentiment, from ‘halftone Hello‘ was also embossed in gold.
In the following two cards, only the outline images were used along with two different coloring techniques:
The three large outline flowers were embossed in white on water color paper, then colored with three shades of yellow Peerless water colors. The leaves were stamped with two shades of green ink. A diagonal pattern was created on a white card base using the chisel nip of a W3 Copic marker. The sentiment is from our Faux Veneer set, and a strip of black card stock was used to ground the design.
Here the outline flowers were first embossed in gold on white card stock, then sprayed generously with Heidi Swapp Coral Color Shine. Once dry, the flowers were trimmed and arranged around the ‘hello’ sentiment. The sentiment (Halftone Hello) was also embossed in gold and trimmer using a pair of micro-tip scissors and a craft knife. To finish the card, a few drops of gold glitter were added in a random pattern, and to the center of the flowers.
And finally, a traditional use of the stamp set using both the outline and solid images:
Before this card was stamped, all the floral images and leaves were first stamped on masking paper and trimmed. As you can see, this is a one-layer card, and a lot of masking was done to achieve this look. Three drops of silver glitter and a few strips of white card stock were adhered to add an interesting element to the card. The sentiment is from our Scribbled Flowers set.
I hope these examples will inspire you to get creative with your stamps. Don’t forget to add your projects to out flickr gallery.
Have a great holiday!
