Stretch Your Stamps: Day 5 - Outline Stamps

Hello everyone!  Today I chose to try the dimensional paper piecing technique demonstrated by Shari Carroll in the online Stretch Your Stamps 2 class.  I was able to add a few more blooms to my image and give it a little bit more dimension.  I especially liked the burnishing technique Shari used to make the petals more realistic.

Here is my well loved stamp that I added more blooms to:

Stamps:  Stampin' Up! flowers, Wetlands stamp set
Paper:  Very Vanilla Cardstock and patterened paper
Ink:  Early Espresso and Sahara Sand 
Other:  Watercolor pencils for leaves


  1. I love this! I wanted to try Shari's card but didn't have a stamp I could use. :)

  2. Beautiful!! A wonderful take on Shari's card, which I think is stunning! You also chose a great stamp and wonderful papers!!

  3. Beautiful. Love that you added the extra flowers.

  4. A awesome job! I love your well loved and inked stamp. I have some that look like that too!

  5. Wow, haven't seen the lesson yet, but this is gorgeous!

  6. OOH love your layers so pretty!
