A recent purchase (Beautiful Flowers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp) has captured my interest more than most these days. The main flower grouping is really fun to experiment with and the detail is exceptional.

This time, I've stamped the image onto old book paper using brown ink. After it was fussy-cut, I mounted it on a background made with papers from the Wallflower Paper Stash and trimmed it with washi tape.

I filled in the embossed text with white Perfect Pearls and also dabbed it on the flower centers and some of the stamen.


  1. This is so pretty! Love that you stamped the image onto a book page and cut it out.

  2. Oh wow! Your cutting skills are amazing. I love this :-)

  3. Wow it's very elegant and beautiful, I love it.

  4. Great experiment, love the old elegant style of your card!

  5. Your fussy-cut flower looks fabulous on the book paper, totally makes the card. x Amanda

  6. I got this stamp set also. I will be trying out this technique. It is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I like to experiment with stamping on all kinds of pre-printed paper (I've even used magazine pages). In this example, my book paper print was very small so if you want a similar look--tiny text is best. Have fun!!
