Masking Technique:

  1. Stamp each flower onto a sticky notepad so that the sticky part is on the backside and cut out each flower. As you stamp the row of flowers, cover the previously stamped image with the sticky note of the same image to keep ink off that part.


  1. Cut pink cardstock to measure 8” x 8”.
  2. With Wisteria ink, stamp the large scallop-edged flower in the bottom left and the top right of the layout.
  3. Cover the first stamped image with the sticky note and stamp the mum flower image with Ice Blue ink. Leave sticky note in place and stamp a row of stitches across the bottom with Colonial Blue ink.
  4. Stamp the large pointed flower with Orchid ink slightly to the upper right of the blue mum image.
  5. Cover the mum and the pointed flower with sticky notes and stamp the dotted daisy flower image with Lilac ink.
  6. Leaving the mum and pointed flowers covered with the sticky notes, cover the new dotted daisy image and stamp the small daisy with Colonial Blue ink.
  7. Cover the mum and pointed flowers with sticky notes and stamp the dotted daisy flower image with Lilac ink.
  8. Cover the upper scallop-edged flower with a sticky note and stamp the small pointed flower with Ice Blue ink.
  9. Ink the word “sweet” with Lilac ink and the bird with Colonial Blue ink. Stamp above stitches at the bottom right of the layout.
  10. Stamp the middle parts of the flowers with various inks and punch out in small circles and add to flowers with foam dots.
  11. Stamp the tiny flower with Colonial Blue ink and cut out two. Attach to flower centers with foam dots as shown.
