14 Stamped Lotus Flower Cards and Project Ideas

Did you know lotus flowers come in many different colors and are often multi-hued? I used to think of them as having very light-colored centers with delicate-pink flower tips. But when we started thinking about adding a lotus to our Greenhouse Society Collection of flower stamps and dies, we did some research. Now I know you can use nearly any color to create life-like stamped lotus flower projects. Here are 14 stamped lotus cards showing some amazing ways to use this month's Lotus stamps and matching dies!

Plus don't miss Julie's video tutorial featuring the Lotus Stamps and the Bubbles on the Border Dies!

Handmade Sloth Gift Tag

Hello, all! Julie here with a tutorial from Allison Arbour. She's showing us how she made this adorable handmade gift tag using alcohol markers. Allison used both the Sloane and Slater the Sloths stamps and dies and the Hello Hollyhocks stamps and dies on her project.  I would never have imagined using this stamp sets together but it works really well for such a unique combination. I hope you enjoy seeing Allison's stamped sloth gift tag and her tutorial!

Colored Pencil and Embossing on Dark Cardstock - Tutorial

Hello, it’s Julie, and today I have a new tutorial to share with you. I’m using a flower stamp, heat embossing, and colored pencils on dark cardstock. For this project, I'm using the Hello Hollyhocks stamp set, which works beautifully with these heat embossing and colored pencil techniques. These techniques would also be great with any of the flower and nature stamps from the Greenhouse Society Collection.
