A Touch of Geometry to Florals!

by mudra craftstamps
Hi! Nandini here with some fresh, new inspiration for the current Mudra Challenge #27 which is Geometric & Florals.

All of us love our floral stamps. Today I will show you how to add a touch of geometry to your floral cards. So grab your favourite beverage and get ready for a long post!

I started by stamping a bunch of cards with the floral image from the Sweet Rose stamp set. This is a gorgeous layered stamp which is very easy to line up. I just set up my stamp positioner and used different colour combos to stamp the flower towards the top of the card base. I masked the flower and then used the leaves from the Botanical Blooms from the set to stamp some foliage around the flower.


Card 1:
Border stamps in light inks can add a subtle geometric touch to your cards.


  • Take a piece of cream cardstock and die cut a panel with a window.
  • Stamp the border from the Warli stamp set with a very light ink to add a subtle geometric touch to your card.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Carnation stamp set with black ink.
  • Mount the panel on some foam tape and adhere to the card base.

Here is a closer look of the card.





Card 2:
Another way of adding just a little bit interest is by using your scoring board.


  • Take the stamped panel and place it on the scoring board with the envelope tool in place.
  • Score diagonal lines across the panel, leaving the stamped areas free.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia stamp set with black ink on a scrap of cream cardstock.
  • Round the corners of the sentiment panel and ink the sides with grey ink.
  • Adhere the stamped and scored panel to a grey card base. Add the sentiment popped up on foam tape.
  • To finish, adhere some half pearls at the intersections of the scoring lines.

Here is a closer look at the card.





Card 3:
Stencils are a great way of adding more interest to your cards.


  • Take a cream card base and add some stencilling with grey ink. I used the lovely Memory Dots stencil.
  • Trim the stamped panel and stamp the sentiment from the Carnations stamp set with black ink.
  • Add the panel with some foam tape to the card base.

Here is a closer look at the panel.




Card 4:
Adding a frame always adds interest to the card design.


  • Take the stamped panel and add some stencilling with grey ink and the Memory Dots stencil. Use a finger dauber as it gives more control and you don’t need to mask your stamping.
  • Trim the panel and mount it on a black card base.
  • Create a frame by die cutting a panel and heat embossing it with a metallic embossing powder. This is an excellent way to add some shine to your card. 
  • The frame is popped up on foam tape.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia stamp set with black ink. Trim the strip and add over the frame.

Card 5:
Nested dies in basic shapes are a fun way to add some detail to your cards.


  • Die cut the stamped flower with a stitched circle die.
  • Die cut two more circles and ink them directly with ink pads to get different shades of teal.
  • Take a dark teal card base. 
  • Add some texture by inking through the Deco Patterns stencil.
  • Layer the circles and adhere to the card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Carnations stamp set with black ink on a strip of cream cardstock with black ink.
  • Adhere the sentiment strip to the card base with some foam tape.

Here is a closer look at the card.
