This month's gorgeous stamp of the month set is Beloved Bouquet, a set of 14 image and phrase stamps. Now, I know a couple of the phrases are Valentine-y, but don't limit yourself because of that. Here's what I did:

You may notice that my flowers do not look flat like you might expect from a stamped image. I have an easy technique I use to give flowers dimension, so I thought I would share it with you.
Start with a cut out image and the foam pad that comes in the stamp set.
Place the image face down on the foam pad.
Use an embossing tool to rub in a circular motion over the image, starting large and moving in to the center. Start with a lighter touch and gradually add pressure to create a domed shape, being careful not to press so hard that you tear the cardstock.
A completed flower! Adhere them to your project using 3-D Foam Tape to keep the shape.
