Today I'm sharing ideas using a new set called Friends & Family. It combines over 12 mix & match sentiments with a number of bold layering flowers perfect for Spring.
Up first is a card whose design was directly inspired by a gorgeous card by Heather Campbell. I loved her idea of having flowers blooming out from below the sentiment strip so I just had to try it myself!
This set comes with four stems that are attached as part of one stamp image that are perfect for repeatedly stamping as a continuous border for flower borders such as this one. They were spaced to work well with the daffodil, tulip, daisy and posies from the set, each coming with their own unique leaves. The daffodil flower layers with three separate stamps to complete the look.
For my next card, I used the exact same design, but this time substituted the daffodils for tulips. The tulip flower comes with two separate images to layer. These bold images are super easy to layer quickly by hand so no positioning tool is needed, making them a great option for creating card sets with.
For my next card I layered all the daisies from the set for a bright and colorful border to frame my sentiment. I also love the opposite phrase that says "friends are the family we chose".
For my last card, I created a bouquet of mixed flowers using the standalone stem from the set. I was able to length it by hiding the seam behind the layered bow from our Holiday Style set.
I didn't have room for the sentiment on the outside so I continued the design to the inside with an extra flower I had stamped earlier for my bouquet and didn't end up using.
I love offering freebies so for this release (starting on January 13th) a free 5/8" flower die will automatically be included with each order, while supplies last.
I have created a card idea using the bonus flower die which I am offering as a make-n-take with step-by-step directions that you can print out & recreate at home. Just click on the image above to download. :)
Here's a graphic showing all the different sentiment combinations you can create using the Friends and Family stamps & coordinating word dies... I imagine you can even come up with more by trading which friend or family word you use. ;)
