There is Beauty in Simplicity

August 28, 2017

Good Morning.  This is Selma Stevenson and for today’s project I used the new Blossom Time Clear Stamp Set and matching dies to create a very special card.  Here is how it was made.

  1. Start with a 6×6 inch card base. Cut a piece of ModaScrap Grand Canyon paper (brown polka dot pattern) for the card front.
  2. Using the largest die in the Stitched Fishtails die set, cut White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Sponge yellow ink onto the center of the Fishtail. (This color will show behind the die cut flowers.)
  3. Use Susan’s Garden Little Words That Mean A Lot stamp set to stamp the sentiment at the top of the Fishtail.
  4. Use the Blossom Time Clear Stamp Set to stamp three flowers, three berry branches, and six leaves. Color with markers. Die cut with matching dies.
  5. Arrange the flowers on the Fishtail and attach with dimensional tape.  Glue the berry branches and leaves so they are tucked partially behind the flowers.
  6. Use a fine point marker to add small black dots around the design.


There are so many flower arrangements you can create using the new flower stamps sets and matching dies. Have fun replicating this card as shown, or design one that is uniquely your own!

    Has anyone found where I could buy the quote? I love this set but I feel like it’s not the same without the quote. It’s the finishing touch that it needs. Still beautiful though!

    Hi, I agree Theresa regarding both of your sentiments. I also am a fan of Selmas work . Her creativity and the clean designs are fresh and inspirational. I also am finding myself heading over to ECD to make an additional purchase or two after viewing her latest creation. Also I have been curious about the sentiment stamp quoted in this post and one I saw last night about “being born with greatness…”. I have searched ECD thoroughly and can’t find the stamps to purchase. Would like to know if they are soon to be released or available elsewhere as I would love to add them to my stash!

    I always love your designs – they never fail to inspire a purchase! However, the saying “There is…” doesn’t appear on the product you linked? Is it included in that stamp set but not featured on the packaging? Or is there another stamp set about to be released? Thanks, Selma!

      The “Little Words That Mean A Lot” stamp set now shows the stamp I used. (The sentiment was omitted on the package in the original photo. It will be included in this stamp set.)
