1. Cut out the largest Stitched Shapes Oval from Whisper White cardstock with your Big Shot.
2. Prepare Stamparatus:
NOTE: You can also use the Stamp-a-ma-jig or just use the Clear Stamp Blocks if you don’t have a Stamparatus yet.
~You will need the Black Stamping Pad as this is a Photopolymer stamp set. Remove the Black Stamping Pad if you are using Clear Mount Rubber Stamps.
~I always like to have some grid paper on top ot the Black Stamping Pad. The measurement to cover the full surface is 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.
~I like to use a darker piece of cardstock on top of the grid paper and place it 1″ from both hinges so it will stamp correctly.
~Position the piece of cardstock that you cut the Stitched Shapes Oval from 1″ from both hinges over the dark cardstock so you can tell if it moves when you lift your stamp back up.
3. Stamping with the Stamparatus
NOTE: You can hold the Palm of your Hand over the stamp and press firmly on the Stamparatus Panel. I usually count for 5 seconds with all my stamps-Wood Mounted, Clear Mounted, Photopolymer, and Stamparatus. This ensures I get a great stamped image.
~Position your Flower with the Stem stamp flat side up on the Stitched Shapes Oval where you want it. Color the Stem with the Call Me Clover Marker and the Flower with the Lovely Lipstick Marker making sure to color all the fine lines.

~Position the Flower only stamp directly over the Flower with Stem image. Ink up with Blushing Bride ink. Stamp.
~Line up the larger Leaves and Stem stamp so the Stem from the Flower and Stem stamp line up and intersect nicely. Use Call Me Clover ink and stamp.
~Now line up the smaller Leaves and Stem stamp directly over the larger Leaves and Stem stamp. Ink up with Lemon Lime Twist ink and stamp.
Yippee! Your stamping is done!
Clean your stamps with the Simply Shammy. Get the Simply Shammy wet with water-either under running water or spritz water on it. Rub each stamp a couple of times and it is clean!
4. Finish the card.
~Cut your card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Cut your card front layer at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Color the edges with the Lovely Lipstick Marker if desired. Run through your Big Shot with the Sparkle Embossing Folder. Attach to card base with Tombow Glue.
~Attach your stamped flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Your Card is finished!
