Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Who knew all these extra flowers were hiding in this year round floral stamp set?  Today Melanie will show you how to create so many more varieties with just the centers and leaf elements from her new Pressed Flowers 2!  It is SO fun to reverse the leaves and mix and match the different sizes to create completely NEW flowers!   Skip a space and use the matching leaf dies to create falling "loves me, loves me not" petal embellishments! So versatile! Please enjoy!

I like them both. I wouldn't have thought to use the leaves to make flowers, but I love the way they turned out.

Thank you for getting back to me so soon Melanie. I will try again and hopefully get the hang of it. I'll try that light touch and several times. I love your work, you make  your cards look so easy, thank you. Joan

I Joan, yes, you don't want ta lot of ink on your dauber, and use a light touch.  Start swirling off the edge of the cardstock first to avoid a round print from the sponge.  You can always layer on more.  Theresa refers to sponging as "butterfly kisses"  I work pretty fast, but it's better to layer up the color as you go.  She recommends ink it up, then tapping off on scratch paper, swirling it off on scratch and then finally moving to your cardstock, but I think you can go directly to it if you don't start with a lot, that's what I do.  Practice makes perfect!  Although, perfect isn't necessary!

Hi Melanie,

You make the sponging so easy. When I do it,even when I sponge off the card, I manage to have circles on my card stock. Do you press gently or hard? Please let me know your secret. thank you. Joan
