Quint-Essential Flower

There is an adorable little stamp in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog that is really quite versatile.  I'll wait while you go get your catalog and open it up to page 110...

See the Quint-Essential Flower in the upper right hand corner of the page?  It's a cute stamp, right?  But wait until you see how versatile it is and how many different looks you can get from this one stamp.

First off is the look you get from just stamping the whole image:
 (This is embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder, by the way.)

Then here is the second look you get when you use the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch and layer that on top of the base.
 (Wild Wasabi embossing powder was used for the second layer.)

Then you can take the 1" Circle Punch and punch out the design from the center and layer that on top.
(This part was inked with VersaMark and Midnight Muse and then embossed with Clear embossing powder.)

Believe it or not, we're not done yet!  The 3/4" Circle Punch was used to punch out another, smaller circle and layer on top.
 (This was embossed with . . .Tangerine Tango embossing powder!)

You might think that was all - and yet, there's one more!  Use the 1/2" Circle Punch to punch out the smallest image and layer that on top.
 (Embossed with VersaMark, Daffodil Delight ink, and Clear embossing powder.)

So are you liking the flower with all of its depth and colors?

And finally here it is on a card.
 (I used some more of our new items on this card including the Chevron TIEF, Finishing Touches Edgelits, and Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon.)

Can you believe all of the different looks you can get from one little stamp?  I'm always so excited when Stampin' Up! designs stamps that can be used with our punches - it gives you so many more options - and it's so easy!  So now you know that you NEED to get the Quint-Essential Flower stamp, right?
