I am a longtime fan of blue and white China. After stamping and die cutting MANY orchid blooms, I decided I needed at least one card with the blooms in blue and white China!

I started by creating the vase. I cut a vase using a modified Mod Vases Die and stamping with an image from the Watercolor Halftone Stamp. I covered it in Nuvo Glaze and set aside to dry.

The background is an A2 base, ink blended with Soft Lilac Ink using the Square Weave Stencil. Once the blue pot was dry, I assembled the card and added the Hello from the Bold Greetings set cut with Black Glossy cardstock and layered on white die cuts slightly off center.

This os often how I begin working with multiple die cuts. I like to cut many out using different colors and sorting them in this bin which helps keep me organized!

Next up is this sweet card with the textured background created using the Mod Squares Embossing Folder. The textured piece is smaller than the A2 card front to allow a border. The stem is stamped on the piece prior to embossing, and then the blooms and leaves applied after.

The Hello from the Bold Greeting set is cut with holographic cardstock (another new favorite!)

Next up is another texture layered card. Checkout how the addition of three Watercolor Stripes Die changes the look!

The stem was stamped on both the base and the die cut layer using a stamp positioner to make sure it was in the same place. After adding the background, it was easy to add the blooms and leaves.

Final step was to add a few enamel dots and a stamped sentiment from Sentiment Strips 3.

Another card with a textured base uses the Dotted Tie Debossing Die. This time, the blooms were stamped on Natual Cougar, so the base also needed to use the same cardstock. You can see the base is cut to 3.75 x 5 inches to allow another panel (5.25 x 4 inches) to be added.

As with the other cards, the stem is stamped first followed by the addition of the blooms and leaves. The so grateful is from the Essential Sentiments Die, cut in black and layered with purple cardstock.

Last up is the slimline card. This orchid was perfect for a slimline card based on its profile.

After cutting the cardstock, the larger panel was ink blended with turquoise ink through the Grid Stencil to add color and interest.  The large Nesting Slimline Label Die creates the perfect accent to the orchid flower.

So kind from the Inside and Out Thanks Stamp set heat embossed in black along with enamel dots complete this fun slimline card.
