Cherry Blossom Card

I posted a quick tip one day last week about using stickers that can be found on sheets of postage stamps and other places. Here are some more details about the card that I posted that day.
Regal Rose cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Gumball Green cardstock 2 x 4 1/4"
Polka Dot Parade DSP (#126902) 1 3/4 x 4"
Whisper White cardstock 2 x 4 1/4"
Fabulous Florets stamp set (#123027)
Primrose Petals In Color ink pad
Tenny Tiny Wishes stamp set (#127802)
Gumball Green 3/8" stitched stain ribbon (#126848)
2 brads from 3/16" Subtles Brads collection (#119738)
Word Window punch (#119857)
Trio Flower punch (#109183 retired)
Dazzling Diamonds glitter (#102023)

For the stamped flowers, I used the "stamp off" techniques. It's very simple. I loaded my stamp up with the color and then stamped the image 3 different times on the cardstock without reinking. That gave me 3 shades of the same color on the cardstock. Then I inked and stamped 3 more times. After I cut the cardstock to size, I inked the edges with the  cardstock directly to the ink pad.

Hope you have a great time stamping!
