May 2022 Stamp of the Month: You Can Do Anything

It's a beautiful day to go after your dreams. Don't you just love that sentiment? It's my favorite part of the new stamp of the month offering from Close to my Heart. Here's the card I made featuring that lovely sentiment.

Several months ago I saw a few people alter the largest flower in our Layered Floral Thin Cuts to create this daisy-like floral. I've wanted to try it and decided now was the perfect time. I cut two out of white cardstock, sponged one lightly with Ballerina and then Flamingo ink, then sponged the other one a little more heavily. I cut one of the leaves in white and sponged it with Sage ink. The center was cut in white, sponged with Lemonade and Sundance then stamped with Espresso ink using one of the images from the Perfectly Imperfect stamp set.

Here's a closer look at the flower. I curled some of the leaves up and some down to give it extra dimension. I adhered the bottom layer directly to the card and the top layer with some foam tape. 

For the card base, I cut the largest of the new Postage Frames Thin Cuts from the May/June 2022 Mix-in Paper collection. I took advantage of the dual sided paper to have the frame in the more solid Lemonade color with the inside in the less solid stripe. I stamped the sentiment in Espresso to match the flower center, then accented with Rose Gold Liquid Pearls after everything was adhered.

I love how this turned out. I'll be using this technique of cutting and layering that flower many, many more times.
