Lotus Blossom Thank You

Lotus Blossum

Hello Stamping Friends,

I didn’t want to overload one post with three items so I overloaded your email with three posts.  Let me know which you prefer.

I was anxious to play with the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set and I needed about 10 thank you notes after Christmas so I created a CAS – clean and simple- card. With Paul scoring and doing the paper piercing we were able to do all 10 in about one hour.

It is white on white with the blossom and the Candy Dot done in Calypso Coral.  The stem uses Wild Wasabi.

There are three flower images, two stem images and two greetings in the stamp set:

Scan 150280003 Best of all — it is free during Sale A Bration with a $50 order.

Base Card Stock:   Whisper White   5.5  x  8.5

Top Layer:               Whisper White  5.25  x 4  popped up with dimensionals

Ink:                            Calypso Coral,  Wild Wasabi

Embellishments:     Calypso Coral Candy Dot

Tools:                         Paper Piercer Tool and Essentials Paper Piercing Template

Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stylus

Score two lines across the bottom of the top layer 1/4 ” from the bottom and 1/8″ apart.  I scored it on the back, though the picture looks like it was scored on the front.  The Essentials Template lets you line up the corner precisely and punch 5 holes across and down in the upper left corner.

The blossom stamps have little 1- 2-3 tags so you know the order to stamp and can line them up perfectly.  Ink the first two up and stamp but use the Stamping Off Technique for the third stamp.  Do the same-stamp off- with the solid stem stamp after stamping the other stem direct to paper.

Stamping Off Technique:  Ink up your stamp — stamp it off on your Grid Paper or scratch paper and then stamp it on the image.
