BSS-MONDAY CHALLENGE-STAMP IN MULTIPLES

Good Monday Morning to everyone. Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Today's challenge for
Buffalo Stamps and Stuff is to use a stamp more than once on your card.

I chose this beautiful flower stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped and embossed it with white embossing powder. I used black and maroon cardstock to match this beautiful piece of designer paper by creative imaginations. I cut out three flowers, one black and two maroon. I then cut out three additional centers, two black and one maroon to pop up on the original flowers. I used buttons with the shanks cut off for the centers.

Here is a close up of the flower in the center. I popped it up on two pop dots to raise it above
the other two flowers. I added leaves from Prima and used a Martha Stewart punch to punch out the maroon fern looking branches.

I cut a small paper doily in half and adhered it to the card stock before I started placing the flowers. I stamped the word friend and embossed with white. This is an absolutely gorgeous stamp and I can't wait to stamp it on different colored papers and embossing it with different colored embossing powders. I could see this flower on a wedding or anniversary card...awesome!
Hope you have time to try using multiples of one stamp on a card. Could be something small and layered down the side of your card.
Thanks for stopping by. Until later.........

Sue, this is a brilliant use of white embossing powder -- I thought at first it was some of your sister's lovely embrodiery!
