Stained Flowers DIY Patterned Paper with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Floral specialty papers can be beautiful, especially when they have a metallic finish. I decided to go ahead and try to make my own using Floral Greetings and Peaceful Peonies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and Laser Silver Lustre paper.


I stamped the flower multiple times to create a pattern. I used Color Box Mix'd Media Inx in Truffe and heat embossed it with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I then colored the flowers applying a bit of Zig markers and spreading the color using my fingers. I kept layering the color until I was happy with the shading. This technique gives the flowers a stained look. The glossy paper allows the color to glide and you end up getting a different coloring effect.

I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment on Heavyweight Vellum #48 and cut a banner. I decided to fussy cut 2 flowers from the remainding stamped paper and adhere them on top of a simple pink frame cut from Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock -which goes along perfectly with the Rose Quartz Mica / Metallic card base. To add dimension to the frame and flowers I used 3D Foam Strips and Foam Squares.
