3-D Pansies

Hi there. Today I wanted to share a card I made using this photo as my inspiration......and the Pansy 3-D/pattern stamp from Eureka Stamps. So cool huh??!!! I just love these 3-D stamps from Eureka stamps. They are really very easy to use, and add so much to a project. Ok...first I need to tell you about my photo above. We have a garden in front of our bay window. Each year, I plant inpatients in there, and we have bulbs in the early spring. Well this year, I switched up my flower of choice for the garden. No impatients. I bought some other things...BUT...right in the front row under the peach tree, popped up this little plant. A pansy plant! I was soooo excited since I love pansies, but I was very confused where it came I never planted these in that spot. We now call it the "random pansies". Funny thing...there is another "random pansy" plant on the side of the house growing in a rock bed! Well, I used my "random pansies" as my inspiration to make these 3-D pansies. I started by stamping the image onto white CS with purple ink. Next, I colored all the pieces with colored pencils. I used a purple pencil to go over the "dark part" of the pansy. Next, I cut out all the pieces, and began scoring and curling as the directions say to. When you make your own 3-D pansy, I recommend that you lay out the pieces exactly as the picture shows. It is easier to grab the correct number petal as the directions call for them. I also find with any of the 3-D images, they "curl" better if you use one squirt of a mini-mister bottle on it before playing with it. Well, after I got these guys together, I attached them to a simple green CS base, and added a rub-on. I really wanted to make the flowers the focal point of this card, so I didn't use any PP or other embellishments. I am going to play with this stamp again and see what other pansy creations I can come up with. If you haven't had a chance to check out the 3-D/Pattern images from Eureka Stamps yet, be sure to do it today! There are so many to choose from, and they add so much to your projects!


  1. Very nice, Jessica! Love your inspiration too. One of my favorite flowers too.

  2. Great job with the pansy, the dimension looks wonderful!
