Daffodils for your Birthday - KSS

While working with the new Spring Daffodils Multi Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps, I was struck by the fact that the size of the flowers is perfect for placing in several of the other "will hold a bouquet of flowers" types of items in my Kitchen Sink Collection. Things like the urn from Hydrangea Multi Step Clear Stamps, or the glass bowl from Bitty Tulip Bouquet Multi Step Clear Stamps. In past week I have already placed them in a basket from Basket Multi Step Clear Stamps on this card, so today I have placed them in the watering can from Sunflowers Multi Step Clear Stamps.

I need to send out a birthday card to a friend this week so I added a sentiment from Make a Big Statement Clear Stamps and I now have a card ready to go.

You may notice that the top handle of the watering can is missing. This is the process I used to place the daffodils in the can. I first created a mask for the watering can from a PostIt Label and cut it out. I then cut off the top handle and back rim of the mask so that the flowers would appear to be inside the can.

I then stamped the daffodils over the can as shown starting with the leaves and stems first. Once the bouquet was done, I removed the mask and proceeded to stamp the watering can being careful to wipe the ink off of the top handle and rim of each layer before I stamped it. The end result was a beautiful watering can of spring daffodils!

All in all it was a pretty simple process needing only the one mask for the entire card.

I then returned the mask to the watering can to stamp the brick walkway and the fringe of grass.

Here are the Kitchen Sink Stamps I used to create this design:
