Do you LOVE this set?  I know I do!  I got it in photopolymer and just LOVE how easy it i to line things up when up stamp.  But I do have to tell you, I was a tad bit perplexed when I saw ALL THE INDIVIDUAL PIECES that you get when you get the photopolymer version of the this set.  But I figured out an easy way to get things perfect.  Here’s what I do…

DSC03356Start by leaving the pieces positioned on the sheet.



DSC03357Put your block on top and the pieces are positioned just they way the are supposed to be.



DSC03360Stamp this first step on your paper




DSC03361Now lay the flower stamps where they belong (stamping side down)




DSC03362Finally….add the blog to the back of the flowers and you are good to go.

I’ve shown this at a couple workshops and everyone can see just how easy it is to get everything lined up just the way it need to be.

And now for my card…here’s the details –

  • Blushing Bride – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Best Year Ever dsp print – 4 1/4  4 1/4, add to card front
  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 1 1/2, run though Spring Flowers Embossing Folder and add to card front.
  • Smoky Slate – 5/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 3 7/8 x 2 5/8, stamp leaves in Pistachio Pudding, Flowers in Blushing Bride and greeting Smoky Slate.

    Thank you for your demonstration. I have been trying to figure out this stamp set since I got it. You make it all look so easy. I can’t wait to try it out now.

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for this really helpful tip Mary; I have a long-distance customer who has been battling with this and whilst I made a few suggestions, as I have the clear-mount set I was struggling to help hands-on – I shared your suggestion and she assures me it works a treat!

  3. Thanks so much Mary! Your card is lovely! However, the tutorial is WONDERFUL!!! Hope I can remember this when I try to use it. I am going to pin this for future reference! Keep up the good work!

  4. Just seeing your card today and wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the detailed information for making this card, especially the layer sizes!!! God bless you!
