Now tonight I have used the lovely Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. The image is just gorgeous. When I stamped the image, my daughter exclaimed “I want that stamp!”. So, I suggest to you, like my 16-year-old daughter, YOU NEED this stamp set. It is a stamp set you can get for free with a purchase of just $90 product.

I have chosen to highlight the beautiful flower image tonight by offsetting it on a twisted easel card.

To make the easel card I simply cut the base card, in this case the early espresso in half-length wise, so now you have 2 long pieces of card. Score the card in half, so that it looks like a normal folded card. Then score one half of the card diagonally. That is how I made the base and it fits into the normal C6 Envelope when folded shut.

The gorgeous blooms I have stamped in my favourite colour at them moment I think which is Rich Razzleberry and then cut is out with the Stitched shapes framelits and backed it with Tranquil Tide card stock cut with the Layering circle framelits. Making it a circle just plays with the angles of the triangle in the easel card and makes it stand out just that little bit more I think.

Such a lovely sentiment is also from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and I have cut this out using the Petals and More thinlits dies and popped it up on some dimensionals

To bling it up a little more I have added the delicate white doilies, gold metallic thread and some leaves in tranquil tide cut from the Petals and More thinlits dies.

On the 2 triangle parts of the base card I have used the Heartfelt Blooms stamp in crumb cake on powder pink to show you that you can also use this stamp as a back ground to your focal point image.

I have lined the inside of the card with the gorgeous silver and old olive card from the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP. It is just beautiful paper with the silver foil running through it. To hold the easel up I have again stamped the Heartfelt bloom image in Rich Razzleberry on whisper white card stock and punched it out with the 1 1/8” scalloped punch backed it with the 1 3/8” scalloped punched rich razzleberry card and popped them up on some dimensionals.

Now you need somewhere to write on this card so turn it over and on the back of the card I have punched out using the scalloped punches again another section of the stamped image and adhered it to the card so that it is nice and decorated. Can’t have a plain place to write!
