These A2 size cards feature the Forever Lovely Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.

I used the 2-step flower and leaf stamps from the stamp set which are easily aligned with the Stamparatus. Place the flower stamp on a scrap piece of CS, set slightly down from the top center of the Stamparatus base. Hold the CS in place with one of the magnets provided.  Stamp the image on the scrap piece to make sure you have it positioned as desired.  Lift up the plate and leave the stamp in place. Leave the CS in the same spot, line up the leaf stamp on top of the stamped image, and pick the stamp up with the other plate. Test stamp the leaves.  Once you have the 2 stamps aligned properly you can proceed with the stamping.   It may be helpful to mark the corners on the Stamparatus grid paper so that as you rotate the CS it is re-positioned correctly.

On this first card I started by stamping the flower on the left end of the top mat of Whisper White CS with Wisteria Wonder Ink. And then switched to the other plate and stamped the leaves in Soft Sky Ink.  I rotated the piece 180 degrees in the Stamparatus and repeated the process on the other end.  Then rotated the piece and repeated the process on the top and bottom edges. I mounted the top piece onto a bottom mat of Soft Sky CS.  The sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set was stamped on a scrap piece of Soft Sky CS, was die cut using the large label die from the Stitched Label Framelits, popped up with Dimensionals and placed in the center of the top mat.  I finished off by adding a few Rhinestones.

This second card uses Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz CS and inks.

And this third card uses Lovely Lipstick and Lemon Lime CS and inks.
