Stained Flowers DIY Patterned Paper with Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps

Floral specialty papers can be beautiful, especially when they have a metallic finish. I decided to go ahead and try to make my own using Floral Greetings and Peaceful Peonies from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and Laser Silver Lustre paper.

I stamped the flower multiple times to create a pattern. I used Color Box Mix’d Media Inx in Truffe and heat embossed it with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I then colored the flowers applying a bit of Zig markers and spreading the color using my fingers. I kept layering the color until I was happy with the shading. This technique gives the flowers a stained look. The glossy paper allows the color to glide and you end up getting a different coloring effect.

I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment on Heavyweight Vellum #48 and cut a banner. I decided to fussy cut 2 flowers from the remainding stamped paper and adhere them on top of a simple pink frame cut from Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock -which goes along perfectly with the Rose Quartz Mica / Metallic card base. To add dimension to the frame and flowers I used 3D Foam Strips and Foam Squares.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project idea. Make sure to visit Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps to check out these and other new clear stamp sets available now. For more ideas and inspiration visit SNSS blog!
