Happy Friday everyone! We have some great projects to share with you today using the Floral Post Collage Stamp!
Michelle has created an awesome ATC:
Details from Michelle:
I stamped the Floral Post Collage Stamp onto patterned paper with Archival (Plum). I distressed the edges with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed) and swiped the edges with a black inkpad. I dipped the corners directly into Inka Gold. On some card stock I stamped the butterfly stamp and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then fussy cut the image out. I added an image from Love Letters Montage and a sentiment from Prague Vol 2 Wordstrips.
Teresa has created this fun card:

Although the beautiful handwriting on this Floral Post stamp screamed vintage to me, I thought I'd challenge myself and create something in brighter colours. The twine I've added reminds me of bundles of old postcards and letters you might find in an attic. I applied some Flowersoft to the flowers to brighten everything up a little and tie it in to the colourful patterned papers I've used.
Michelle has also altered a wood block:
Details from Michelle:
I found this off-cut of wood lying around and decided to turn it into an ornament. First I covered the entire surface in Inka Gold. I'm not one to get the paints out and make time consuming messy projects, so I loved that it very easily swiped on and gave excellent coverage, no mess and no clean-up!. I sat it in front of the heater for 5 minutes then I stamped the Floral Post on the top, front and back with Brilliance ink and heat set. I used the Friends Collage for the sides. I found some ribbon offcuts to wrap around the ornament (including an old Easter Egg ribbon bow!) and found a trinket from my stash which I framed a Love Letters Montage image in. I added a variety of Viva la Flora Montage images to the ornament and a Photobooth image which I fussy cut. I finished by using a variety of Wordstrips and some paper flowers.
Details from Rachel:
I have a drawer full of backgrounds that I've created with Alcohol Inks or Distress Inks just waiting to be used, so I pulled one out that was created using a few different colours of Alcohol Inks. Stamped the Floral Post on top and found another background piece that had a few different colours and stamped the Floral Post onto that piece as well. I used the second piece to cut out the flowers, postage stamp and the postmark. (TOP TIP: the postmark fits a 7/8" circle punch perfectly!) Adhered those pieces on top of the first stamped background and put it all onto a red card.
Hope you've enjoyed these ideas with the Floral Post stamp! Have a great weekend!
