Inspired Stamps - 1" Flowers

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I'm sharing a special post today focusing on Inspired Stamps 1" Flowers stamp set.

These tiny images are so fun to work with.  They are perfect for creating cute little focal images on a card or using them to create pretty backgrounds, as well as working with stamping/inking techniques.

I went with a Clean & Simple design.  Here's my card:

The 1" flowers were stamped on white cardstock, and coloured with Copic markers. I die-cut a window on the card front and did some piercing along the shaped window.  The flowers image was adhered just behind the window with 1/16" foam adhesive.  I stamped a sentiment just underneath the window with the set Inspired Stampers' Favorite Collection #2.  This is an easy design and could easily be mass produced for a card set.

Speaking of card set, I have one to share using the 1" Flowers set:

These cards measures 4.25x4.25".  I used the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with patterned paper from Lily Bee Design (Picket fence) and some brown and pink cardstocks.  It's so easy to mix and match the flowers to the stem and leaves or the vase.  Add a little glitter to the stamped images for some interest, and using a simple layout and you'll have a great card set.

Here's a photo of the card gift set:

I hope you like the above ideas.

Thanks for visiting me.  Do have a wonderful week!

These are soooo pretty, Kary! I especially love that first card, looks gorgeous, the small frame in the corner! And because the rest is white, all attention goes to the gorgeous colored flowers!!
Hugs, Wendy
