Hello to all !!!
Before I show you what is in there for you, let me take you to the CottageCutz store where our Anniversary sale is going on and you can save upto 50% for just this week only. Isn't that wonderful !!!

Now on to today's project. Have ever thought that how good it would be if your stamp would have been a little more bigger or if you could increase the design size. Well, you can do that and I call it EXTENDING YOUR STAMP.

This is very well featured in this card here where from one stamp , I have build up a cluster of flowers so that it looks that the stamped image is really bigger in size.
Do check it out here.

All the flowers stamp and die combo that can be used to create this sort of card can be found here
Stamp out the images in Versafine onyx black and cut with coordinating die.

Use one of the die cut image as a mask and stamp two images on the left and right side of the mask

Remove the mask. This is how the card panel should like.

Arrange all the die cut and stamped images on the card panel to plan out the design

Colour all the images with Zig Real Brush Pens

Arrange the coloured images on the card panel popping some of them with 3D foam tape.

Adhere the card panel on green mat layer and then on the card base 

This is how the card looks like. One stamp can give a big cluster of flowers.

You can build up a similar card from the many stamp and die flower sets . You can check them out here.

I hope you will create many spring cards. Thanks for being with me.

It's a bouquet! Great tips on creating a larger image with a stamp. Layering also gives it a 3D effect that adds to the overall feel of the card. Nice job.
