Introducing Year of Flowers: Gladiolus

I am excited to have the opportunity to introduce you to the next addition in the Year of Flowers series, Gladiolus.  This particular flower has been requested by many of our customers and I am so pleased to be able to finally provide it to all of you.  

These gladiolus blooms were an absolute joy to illustrate.  Upon studying several different varieties, I loved how they featured tight clusters of blooms and knew that this would be one of the best yet.  Besides the single large set of blooms, this set also features sentiments that are interchangeable between all the sets as well as a "month" stamp that can be combined with the others to create a calendar.

The details.

  • Year of Flowers: Gladiolus will be available for purchase on August 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Year of Flowers: Gladiolus contains a total of 5 stamps (1 large flower image and 4 sentiments)
  • The sentiments are interchangeable with the other stamps in the Year of Flowers series: Violets, Daffodils, Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley, Roses & Larkspurs.


Today I also want to introduce you to our new impression plate for August, Guide Lines Grid.  This double-ides impression plate allows you to create the perfect guide for using the images in the original Guide Lines stamp set.  One side of the plate features the grid in a horizontal orientation and the reverse side showcases a diagonal orientation.  Images from other sets will also coordinate with this grid as long as they are smaller than 3/4". Not to mention that the grid also looks amazing alone without any stamp embellishing.

The details.

  • The Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate will be available for purchase on August 15th.
  • It will retail for $16.
  • The Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate is a double-sided plate measuring 4.5" x 5.75".
  • The grid pattern that this creates will coordinate perfectly with the original Guide Lines stamp set.

Now let's get onto some fun projects, shall we?

Pink Here For You Card

My first card is a simple single layer card that lets the coloring take center stage.

Stamped flowers

I started by stamping the large gladiolus image with Black Noir Palette ink onto Stamper's Select White cardstock.


I then colored the image with Berry Sorbet & Ripe Avocado Copic Trios.  I didn't blend the darkest center portion of the flowers too much because I wanted to use it as a guide for glitter application in the next step.

Adding glitter

I used a 2-way glue pen to apply adhesive to the center of each flower and sprinkled them with Prisma Glitter.  

Final glitter closeup

Since I left the centers so vibrant in the previous step you can still see their detail & definition clearly.


The sentiment "I'm here for you, always" was stamped slightly overlapping the flower with black ink as well.  I love how simple this is yet still can play a role as an attention getter.

Red Gladiolus Card

This next project showcases how you don't have to use the entire gladiolus image to create a beautiful focal point.


I started by cutting a piece of Stamper's Select White cardstock with the new Mat Stack 4 die.  I then stamped a portion of the gladiolus image on it using Black Noir ink.  I colored the image with Pure Poppy & Ripe Avocado Trios.  In real life, red gladiolus are some of my favorites and I love them just as much as a paper version.

Guide lines plate use

I also used the new Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate on this project.  You can see here how the impressed grid allows you t line up the images from Guide Lines perfectly every time.

Guide lines corner closeup

I love how the impression plate makes the finished background almost look like dimensional tile when completed.

Ribbon detail

I layered loops of Pure Poppy Satin ribbon underneath the focal point to create some drama.

Focal closeup

I just adore how vibrant the red is when popped against crisp white and Kraft.  The word "gladiolus" from the set was added beside the floral image as a finishing touch.


I am quite certain that this card would look stunning recreated in several different colors, especially Raspberry Fizz!

Green Here For You Card

This card is a more modern take on gladiolus.

Embossing flowers

I stamped the floral image on Kraft cardstock with Fresh Snow ink and sprinkled it with Filigree White embossing powder and heat to set.

Finished flowers closeup 

I love how well this image pairs with heat embossing.  The technique really captures every detail of the flowers so well.

Sentiment closeup

The sentiment was also heat embossed and underlined with a few lines of random stitching on my sewing machine.  I used glue dots to apply a few haphazard Simply Chartreuse buttons on the right hand side.


This project would make a wonderful gift if you were to package 5 or 6 of them together in a variety of colors!

Too Kind Card

I have one last project for you using this set.

Focal closeup

I used our Linen Vellum for my focal point, stamping the gladiolus onto it using Aqua Mist ink.  

Stitching closeup

The Hawaiian Shores background was impressed with the Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate without the use of the Guide Lines stamp set.  I really like the simplicity of this.  I trimmed a thin strip of Stamper's Select White cardstock and adhered it on either side of the sentiment with a 2-way glue pen.  I then stitched over the border using my sewing machine.

Sentiment closeup

The sentiment was stamped with Hawaiian Shores ink.


These elements were just a joy to work with!  I hope you leave this post feeling as inspired as ever!  What do you think of the new gladiolus?  Do you already own any of the other Year of Flowers sets?  And how about that Guide Lines Grid Impression Plate?  Do you already have the original Guide Lines set in your stash?  You could have a chance at winning an amazing prize package just for letting us know your thoughts!

  • 37
    Sallie says:

    Another lovely addition for your Year of Flowers. I always thought of gladioli as “funeral flowers”, but recently purchased some loose ones at Trader Joe’s. What dramatic flowers! Your new set captures that and I LOVE the examples using the new stamp. Beautiful! The new grid impression plate is a MUST HAVE…not only for its own pattern, but for lining things up as you did with your background stamping.

  • 42
    Angela K. says:

    I just about died when I saw the gladiolus sneak peak…every one of the flower sets has been so meaningful for me and this one may just take the cake! On the morning of our wedding, friends drove all around buying every last gladiola stem from the buckets at the end of our Mennonite neighbours’ driveways. The church was overflowing with their sprays of bright colour. You have captured them perfectly with this stamp set – so beautifully elegant! I can’t wait to get my hands on this set..only 2 more sleeps thankfully πŸ™‚
    And loving the new impression plates, even without the coordinating stamps it’s so classy. Combined – simply amazing. What a beautiful release!

    You wouldn’t think one would get a chuckle out of this set, but when my siblings and I were little, and we were getting on my mother’s last nerve, she would to say: “I should have raised gladiolus!” I most definitely would have to make her something using this set! So pretty!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Beautiful samples! Glads were one of the first flowers I planted when we moved into our house 11 years ago – I always smile when I think back on that! Love the impression plate too – my poor guidelines set have been very neglected lately – this is just the thing to make me pull it out.

    Josiane says:

    Since my birthday is in August, I have always liked gladiolus. It’s a beautiful set. I don’t own any of the other Year of the Flowers sets but want to get the Lily of the Valley and Rose sets. The new Guide Lines Grid impression plate is such a good idea – a grid without stamping multiple times for a card front and not limited to any color (I have the Grid cardstock too)! I have just bought the Guide Lines and Guide Lines 2 sets so I can’t wait to try them out with the impression plate.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 58
    Susan W. says:

    This is my favorite Flower set by far!! I absolutely love how you designed the gladiolus flower. And the sentiment is perfect to use for friends and family. I have one friend going through a rought time right now and I know she will appreciate a card using this sentiment.

    I love the new impressions plate and the stamp set Guidelines has jumped further up on my wish list.

You have done it again–made it easy to recreate card after card with this impressios plate.

    Glads have always been one of my favorite flowers. I can remember my father-in-law always having them planted in the garden and everytime I stopped in or they stopped by the house, he would bring me a bouquet of 4 – 5 long stemmed beautiful colors. It is a memory that will always be with me and now I can’t wait to make a special card to send to them using this set.

    i love that you used vellum in a lot of the samples this month. i always forget to use vellum. and when i do, i am not sure how to glue it down.

  • 117

    How ironic as my DS’s grandmother just gave me a bunch of gladiolus this week. I’m sure I’ll fair much better with this stamp set than the live ones. I’m already managing to kill the flowers (I’m awful with plants)! Love the pop of red against that Kraft BG. Will definately have both of these on my list this month.

    Suzie says:

    I do love the year of flowers series and the artwork you create is absolutlely stunning! I love how you showcase the versatility of using it – color it in for a more time-consuming card – or color blocked for a quicker card. Doesn’t matter which, they are all equally elegant!!!!

    Hlee says:

    Another great addition to Year of the Flowers! I love Gladiolas and this is just perfect to add to my flower stamp collection. The guideline impression plate is such a smart idea. Got to pull out my Guide Lines stamp set to play with again, that’s for sure. I must give PTI credit where credit is due. You guys are amazing! I love how you are always thinking of ways to use older stamp sets. Some companies seem to abandon their older stamp sets and try to sell you all these new products, but you are always thinking of innovative ways to combine old stamp sets to new products. Makes me feel like I’m not wasting money on these sets and that they’ll last me a lifetime (instead of just buying a set that will only last me this season). Love you guys! You ROCK!

    Love the card with the red glads! I don’t have Guidelines yet, but I might need to pick it up now with the impression plate. Thanks for the chance to win!

    What a gorgeous illustration of these flowers. I do not yet own Guidelines, although it has hopped into my cart more than once. I love the pairing of it with the new impression plate!

    I’d make SO many cards for my husband with this set. Both of us have claimed this as our favorite flower, and the first bouquet of flowers he gave me was heavy with Gladiolus!

    Guidelines is on my wish list for a long time; with this new impression plate it goes on top of the list. YOF-Glad is another simply perfect set for cards.

    I have all of the Guide Lines sets and I love the Impression Plates to go with them…Fantastic. And being an August baby, I definitely will get the Gladiolus Set. I think I’ll plant some of the flowers too, as they are so pretty and happy.

    I love gladioli – we had them at our wedding, even though our friends laughed because they associate them with Dame Edna Everage (an Australian comic creation of Barry Humphries’). This stamp does this magnificent flower complete justice!

    Gorgeous! All samples are just so unique. The red glads are to die for! That texture plate is so cool! Just love it all! My grandma had glads in her yard but I can’t remember all the colors she had. Wonderful set. I need a second job just to buy all these great PTI stuff but then no time to stamp!
