How to Make a Beautiful Floral Gift Card Set + Video!

What do you do when you receive a bunch of beautiful floral stamps from Spellbinders and are instructed to ‘create’ something….  it wasn’t hard to decide at all, how about make a LOT of floral cards in a Gift Card Set?

I am Guest Designing at Spellbinders today and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they sent me the whole release from Stephanie Low.  It’s called ‘Just Add Color’, so that’s what I did, and brightly too!

For those of you who have visited before you may know my fave colour combo already…  but did you notice I added some grey, it’s a bold move to be sure.

This first card uses the Mandala Blossoms Stamp Set

and I love the Mandala stamped tone on tone in the background.

Next it’s the Botanical Feather Stamp Set and yet another sweet little bouquet.

You may noticed that I have white spattered on all the grey areas of the cards.

And now the Peonies Blossoms Stamp Set.

I’ve kept the layout similar for three of each of the designs, this helps to create faster when making a set of cards.

These Large Peonies stole my heart, and I have some more coming up in a post in the future so keep an eye out for that one.

and now Loves Me, Loves Me Not and my most CAS design today.

All of the sentiments today are from the Thanks Expressions Stamp and Die Set.

Then it’s time for some ‘messy’ Copic colouring with the Little Flowers Stamp Set.

and a wreath?  Why not!

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.

I hope you are inspired to create a set of floral cards today, whether it’s for yourself or as a gift!  Thanks so much to Spellbinders and I hope you have the most wonderful day.  Hugs

  1. Your cards are gorgeous. Love the ones with the Grey tone on tone background, so elegant. All of the spellbinders stamp sets are lovely.

  2. your card sets are so pretty, Therese – i have to make a set soon for a prize at an event – think i have some good ideas now – thanks!

  3. I love the added grey… but you knew that, right? LOve the pink/orange combo almost as much, Therese… what a great assignment!! They sent me nuts, and bolts. cogs, and wheels!! but Tom had such fun with them! off to watch! xx

  4. You’ve certainly out done yourself!!! These are definitely WOW cards!! I just love to do what you did … stamp a bunch of images (especially flowers) and just color. Then whatever I like I turn into a card. I love the designs you did here; I love the stamps (especially the large peony … now on my “to get” list); the idea of doing a flower gift set; and the colors you used. I never would have thought … and I now I will!!!! Thank you so much, Therese, for sharing this video. MUCH appreciated.

  5. Love all the cards Therese, but my favourite is the Loves Me, Loves Me Not. I love your use of grey. It makes a great background for almost any colour. My walls are almost all grey and the colours set against it just pop.

  6. That’s so very true, it’s quite easy to create something wonderful with Spellbinders. You always come up with such clever ideas and I love your choice of colours too. Great video, enjoy watching like I always do. Hugs x

  7. Beautiful set of cards Therese! Congrats on your DT for Spellbinders – you have certainly done justice to their products – and thank you for sharing so many ideas and tips in every one of your tutorials!

  8. What an amazing array of beautiful creation Therese. You certainly have ‘shown something’ from all those magnificent Spellbinder supplies. I do love a stamped background – just adds so much. Off course your ‘chosen colours’ really make those pop! No doubt after seeing your cards their sales will soar. Fabulous!!!

  9. These are all so stunning. Thank you for sharing the how to as well as the finished cards. The Mandela is amazing must try to get th a one, endless possibilities there. I adore the watercolour effect too, must try that out x

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
