I have had the Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur Striped stamp set for years. I’ve tried to use it but have had a hard time using the matching die. The stamp it a large rubber stamp with all the flowers stamped at one time. The matching die is a solid multi flower cut and I just could not keep all the flowers aligned to get an even cut around the images. The other day I thought about using my Silhouette PixScan to cut the images and it worked beautifully.
I stamped the images on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored them with Copic Markers, colors used are listed below. Once the coloring was done I placed them on the PixScan Mat, took a photo of the image with my cell phone, and then cut them with the Silhouette Cameo. Once the flowers were cut I used my bone folder to curve the petals. I took a large flower and then a medium flower and adhered them together offset with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and set them aside.
Next I cut a rectangle of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes. Then I ink blended Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. I stamped the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Happy Thoughts with Hero Hues India Ink Black in the upper right corner of the rectangle. After these steps were complete it was run through the Sizzix Big Shot again with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder. With my paper cutter a rectangle of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the embossed rectangle and adhered to the back.
The flowers and leaves were arranged on the embossed rectangle and adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue. Then the rectangle was adhered to a horizontal A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue added to the back of the fun foam. I decided to use some Queen and Co. Rock Candy Yellow Rhinestones for the flower centers and the card was done.
