Birthday Card with Field of Daisies Layering Stamps | Rubbernecker Stamps

Hello friends!  My card today is a sweet birthday card using the beautiful Field of Daisies layering stamp set by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I'm almost out of birthday cards to mail to friends and this is a easy fun card to make for the stash!

 
I began by creating the card base:

  • Using a blender brush, ink the edges of a 4-¼" x 5-½" white cardstock piece with Scarlet ink (Color Fuse set #4).  Adhere to a top-folding A2 card base with glue.
  • Ink up the Horizontal Stripe background stamp with Posey ink and stamp onto white cardstock.
  • Trim the striped piece to 4" x 5-¼" and adhere to the card base.
  • Stamp the stems from the Field of Daisies stamp set onto white cardstock.
  • Die cut with the middle sized Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes die.
  • Add foam tape to the back and attach to the card front.

Next I stamped the flower, leaves and sentiment:

  • I used my MISTI for stamping the flower and leaf layers.
  • I stamped the first layer of the flowers with Posey ink.  For each layer/color I repeated the stamping until I got the look I liked.
  • The small flowers are stamped with Scarlet and Nectar for the second and third layers.
  • The large flower layers are stamped with Scarlet and Crimson.
  • I stamped the flower centers with Crimson.
  • I didn't think the stamping through for the large flower!  Since I stamped the final flower layer with Crimson, when I stamped the flower center in Crimson, it just blended in.
  • My solution was to stamp the flower center with one layer of Mocha, which is a light brown in Color Fuse #3.  I took before and after photos to show you.  As you can see from this photo, adding just a bit of light brown makes the center stand out!

  • Next I stamped the leaves.  I stamped the first layer of them all with Moss ink (Color Fuse #10).  The second layer is stamped with Basil ink.  There is a nice variety of four different leaves in this set!
  • I used the coordinating dies to cut out all of the flowers and leaves.
  • Add foam tape to the back of the large flower and one small one.  I added a double layer of foam tape to the other small flower so it would be higher than the other two.
  • Adhere the flowers near the top of the stems.
  • For dimension on the leaves, I put a small foam square at the leaf tip and a dot of glue at the base and adhered them to the card base.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Best Friends Etc. stamp set in black ink.  I trimmed it into a banner shape, added foam tape, and adhered it to the card.
  • For a touch of bling, I added a few rhinestones around the sentiment.


I love how this card turned out and will probably make a few more for my stash!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Lovely card, lots of fun "candy" for the eye. And I'm ALWAYS amazed that anyone can pull off layered stamping -- something I CANNOT do!
