Floral Mannequins and The Sewing Room by Florence

Morning everyone

I hope you have had a great weekend.

Today I would like to share with you a card made using the fabulous Floral Mannequins and The Sewing Room rubber stamp sets.  Please click on the links to see full details of the stamps.

To make this card

Dab some Distress Ink onto a piece of plastic or an acrylic block and spritz with water.
Take a piece of A6 size white card and "swish" it around in the diluted ink and leave to dry.
Stamp all of the images onto the background piece and leave to dry.
Stamp the ruffled ribbon onto a piece of white card, color and cut out.
Stamp the floral lace two times onto white card, color and cut out.
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white card, trim to size and color with Distress Ink.
Stamp the two mannequins onto white card stock, color and cut them out.
Make up the card as seen using foam pads behind the stamped embellishments to give a 3D effect.
The joining of the two pieces of floral lace is hidden behind the mannequin.

Thank you for looking
Happy Stamping

  1. This is very pretty Florence and I love the background using lots of the small stamps and the frilly ribbon combined with the floral lace works perfectly behind the beautifully coloured mannequin. The complementary black layer works well too. x

  2. Absolutely lovely, great colour choices :)

  10. cute card and love the background technique!

  11. Your strip of lace looks absolutely seamless with the join being hidden by the mannequin & I love the way your two buttons draw the eye immediately to the mannequin by the way you've echoes their colours in the flowers & leaves.
