Let's take a closer look at card design #3 from the Birthday Card Stamp-A-Stack Class!  You can see the first two card designs here: Sketched Birthday Bash & Crazy About You Birthday Floral.

Irresistible lotus - three cool 

Stamp-A-Stack #3: Irresistibly Yours Lotus Blossom—This trio of cards combines two of the most popular FREE choices from the Sale-A-Bration brochure: the Lotus Blossom stamp set and the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You'll be able to choose which colors you want for all three cards!

Irresistible lotus - wisteria  

Irresistible Background—The basic card design starts with a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of the Irresistibly Yours DSP.  I used a sponge to add Wisteria Wonder ink to the scalloped background, bringing out the beautiful, white glossy, embossed design of the paper. 

TIP: Be sure to wipe off any excess ink from the paper with a tissue to keep the rest of your project smudge-free.

Background Layers—I added a 3-1/2" x 1" strip of Wild Wasabi card stock an accent layer across the bottom of the DSP.  It's all matted on a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Basic Black, then adhered to the front of a Whisper White card base.

Irresistible lotus - wisteria 3  

Lotus Stamping—The three-step lotus flower was stamped first in the solid image with Wisteria Wonder ink, then with the larger shaded image over the top, again in Wisteria Wonder.  I finished off the flower with the smallest highlight image inked in Elegant Eggplant.  

TIPS: The three-step stamping process can be a little tricky, but the all-clear photopolymer stamps allow you to line it up with ease!  I like to stand up over my project to get a good look through the stamp for perfect positioning.  Also, pay attention to the direction of little help arrows located on the stamp.  Keep them all going in the same direction to help you line up the layers.

See a helpful Lotus Blossom Video to see the stamp in action.

Stem TIPSThe stem was added in Wild Wasabi ink. Are you having difficulty adding the stem in the right place because the flower is tilted a little too much?  No problem!  The photopolymer stamp is flexible, so re-position the stem on the block to be a little more curved in the direction you need. 

Also, the set includes two stamps for the stem, but I recommend just using the solid one and forgetting about the second highlight image.  If you don't place that second image in exactly the right spot, it will look like a blurred image.  Just skip that one!

Sweet Sentiment—I added a greeting from the Wetland stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A cute little Black Baker's Twine bow, adhered with a Glue Dot, adds the finishing touch. 

I die-cut the focal point with the Ovals Collection Framelits, then popped up the layer with Dimensionals.

Irresistible lotus - cantaloupe 

Two Cool—The second card features the diagonal striped pattern of Irresistibly Yours DSP, this time sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe ink.  .

Cantaloupe Lotus—The lotus was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe for the solid image, then topped with the largest and smallest highlights in Calypso Coral ink. 

Irresistible lotus - pool party

Three Cool—For the third card, I sponged the polka dot Irresistibly Yours pattern with Pool Party.  The blossom is stamped in Pool Party for the solid and larger highlights stamp, then with Island Indigo for the final highlights.
