Below is the layering guide for the new set:

With just a bit of masking, all four layers in the Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum look fabulous in cheerful colors, for my third card; a simple one layer:)

Stamping the outline and solid images only of the Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum give an altogether new look to the Bloom. Die cut masks add the crisp white outlines around each image. Giving it that RETRO vintage fabric look!

  12. Absolutely fascinating seeing your process. As I watched the flower stamping "in reverse" I was dying to see what the difference would be -- and you showed it. Loved the extra steps to further enrich the three layer leaf step. Loved seeing the difference between raised and not raised dot layer. And seeing a different take on this fabulous mums set. Great and thank you!
