Happy Monday! Today I’m excited to share with you a card I created with a STAMPtember collaboration stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and Altenew. The set is called Layered Flowers designed by Tasnim.

I started by stamping the first layer of flower, stem, and leaf with Altenew Crispy Inks: Frosty Pink and Frayed Leaf. Then I stamped the second layer with Coral Berry and Forest Glades. I tried my flowers to point out in different directions each time I stamped to give more balance.

Then I heat embossed the last layer with Ranger Super Fine Detail gold embossing powder. By the way, I used the outline image of leaf from Painted Flower to complement my leaves. For the sentiment, I used Halftone Hello die and Label Love.

I finished off the card with gold thread and gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I really love how all the elements go together on the floral background.

As you can see from the photo above, I intentionally didn’t brush off the stray powder perfectly so that I got messy embossed images. It gives great texture and interest to my flowers. What do you think?

I’m sharing a video tutorial showing you how to make my card. You can watch the tutorial here or in HD on my Youtube channel. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe Mayholic in Crafts to see more videos from me.

Before I leave, I want to give shout-out to my talented teamies, Aga and Yana. I’ve constantly amazed by their beautiful creations, and they were in my mind while I was making this card. I hope you loved my card and got some inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

  1. Beautiful card, May. I love your videos. I would like to know who you have playing in the background, and what song that is, please. ^_^

  2. Lovely card, love the gold embossing highlights.
    Question… After you finished flowers you put the card through the Cuttlebug. What was this for? Did you emboss? Trying to figure it out
    Thanks, again beautiful card!
