It's almost flower season here in Idaho. We have had the most mild winter! The bulbs are starting to bloom, which reminds me of the name of the stamp set I used for today's card, Bloom Burst!
Isn't is so pretty! I love this stamp! I have to tell you about the cool way I got the color on this flower.
I used prints I made on my gel press. Let me show you the prints...
I just stamped the flower on both of these pieces and then cut out the blooms from the purplish piece and the stem and leaves from the green piece. Then I glued those onto a flower I had already stamped on Whip Cream card stock and had cut out. The key to paper piecing is to cut the top layers out right on the stamped line, cutting a bit of it away even.
Making Gel Press Print is pretty easy, with a Gel Press, a brayer and some paint. If you are interested in learning more about the Gel Press ask me about my Gel Press 101 program.
