Here Comes Summer at Fantasy Stampers

Goodness these fortnights are flying. And we are indeed well into Summer now, blue skies or no, and that is our challenge theme this fortnight at Fantasy Stampers..

Summer to me always means flowers and you can hardly go wrong with a flowery project.

I am rather fond of the latest 'modern' flowers from Woodware and decided to use one of the stamps from the 'Mini Flowers' set for my project. I also wanted to try out an 'A Frame' card blank in my stash. Here is the card as it comes out of the envelope.



Patterned papers are from Anna Marie Designs. For the rest, first I stamped a flowery background using masks and coloured lightly with watercolours. Then I stamped and paper pieced four flower heads and rough cut some stems and leaves.








I attached them to strips of acetate so  that when the card was stood up it looked like this.

Couldn't resist a bit of glitter to bling it up.


Rather like this one, and wouldn't be that hard to do if you have a steady hand with a craft knife.






Here's an angled photo to give you a better idea of the '3D' effect. You can just make out the acetate strips.


So that's my little project. Now it's your turn but please don't forget that we need to see some stamping on your project. Pop over to the Fantasy Stampers blog to see more inspiration and link up your own make. Thanks for looking!
