Flexible Stamping - Card 6 of Notecard Set

Random Stamped Background with White Pigment Ink
The last technique for the notecard set that I have been sharing all week is something that I call "Flexible Stamping".  It may have another name, but I am not aware of one.  It is a very simple technique with an acrylic stamp arranged onto the block in a shape that fits the stamper's needs.  Here is a picture of what I am trying to describe:

Please leave me a comment if you have any questions about this technique.  I am not sure that the picture was very helpful!

Three Layer Flower: Diecut Base, Fussy Cut Heat Embossed Petals, and Embossed Center
All of the stamping on this card was done with White Pigment ink and Black or Pear Dye ink. The background of the card base was heat set after random stamping.  The petals were heat embossed with white powder on the white ink. Dye ink doesn't need to be heat set.

Tomorrow, I will post the instructions for making a cute gift box for all of the cards to be presented to the recipient.

Thank you for visiting today!
