Two Flowery Cards

It’s the middle of Autumn here in Australia…and it’s so cold…which also means not many flowers around…we still have to go through winters to before we see the colourful blooms again….and in the mean time,I will make as many flower cards as I can to make me happy… 🙂


Today I’m sharing two flower cards…In the first one I have used Distress inks and water for stamping the base layer of the flowers and in the second card I have used Gansai Tambi watercolours and Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to create the sparkly wine coloured flowers…

I stamped a border stamp at an angle using pink ink and that created the section that I wanted to mask before stamping the flowers….then using the base layer of  Altenew Painted Flowers layering stamp set  and various Distress Inks and my water spritzer,I stamped the images directly onto the top layer….I have used mowed lawn and twisted citron for the leaves and abandoned coral,picked raspberry and candied apple for the flowers..
Using a heat gun I dried the stamps quickly and stamped the top layer using black ink…I stamped the sentiment using green ink on a piece of white cardstock and die cut it using the MFT stitched scalloped rectangle die…to embellish this card I have used a few pink sequins…

For my second card I chose a beige textured cardstock for the card base and cut the top layer to size from the same cardstock…I then adhered a black piece of cardstock to this top layer which I have die cut using the MFT scalloped edge die…I had splattered some gold paint on this black section earlier…then to make the top layer look finished and even,I used a pierced rectangle die and ran it through my Cuttlebug…

On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock,I stamped the flower and leaf images and coloured them in using Gansai Tambi watercolours….once dry, I cut them out and placed them onto the card…I have used black craft foam to elevate a flower and some leaves…

The sentiment has been stamped on a piece of leftover beige cardstock and placed under and over a few flowers….and finally I have added a few gold sequins and a generous amount of sparkle to make the flowers shine…

Word Window Card & Sentiment Backdrop Card

Continuing my technique learning theme from yesterday, I tried out two cards following tutorials by Jennifer McGuire….here are the results…
For my first card I followed her Word Window Card tutorial….I have used a lavender card base and a white top layer…I stamped the flower and leaves stamps on the top layer and coloured them in using Peerless watercolors….
I then used a Happy Anniversary word die and die cut the word on the top layer as well as the front of the card…I adhered a strip of acetate behind the top layer die cut area and then adhered the top layer to the card base…and the card was ready with a see through word element…
I have used a lot of clear sequins to embellish this card…

For my second card I followed Jennifer’s tutorial for creating Sentiment Backdrops…this is a great technique for creating cards with no layers….

On a white card base,I stamped the large cupcake stamp and coloured it in…I also stamped the sentiment using black ink just under the cupcake stamp…I then masked the cupcake and used green dye ink to repeatedly stamp the main sentiment on the card…I used my MISTI for this card as it makes the repeat stamping process much easier….

Then all I had to do was to remove the mask and embellish with a few green sequins and the card was ready…

Two cards Using Kraft Cardstock

One of the lovely and talented bloggers I religiously follow is Vicki and I love all her creations….a little while back she had created a cute piggy card with a stamped kraft card top layer and to enhance the stamped images,she drew a border around them using a white gel pen….making the stamped images stand out a bit….and I really loved the technique and had planned to try it out myself…
Here is the link to Vicki’s lovely creation that inspired me to create this card – Squeal,Oink,Hello!
On a white card base I used a kraft top layer on which I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Flower Heads stamp set and coloured them in…I then used a gel pen to create a border around the images…I didn’t do too well this time but I think I’ll do a better job when I use this technique again..
I die cut a few leaves and a little birdie image and placed them below the gold banner with the sentiment on it…

So while I had the kraft cardstock out,I decided to create a quick card….this time I used it to create the card base….the top layer is die cut from vellum using a stitched rectangle die…I then stamped the little dandelion images on the vellum using white pigment ink to create a background…

The sentiment is half stamped and half die cut and I have used white rhinestones on all four corners to embellish the card as well as conceal the glue dots I used to adhere the vellum to the card base….

Birthday Flowers Card

Today I’m sharing a simple yet bright birthday card…..I chose the colours very carefully and didn’t use too many colours to maintain the simplicity of this card…
The card base is plain pink and I have used watercolour paper to create the top layer…..On the watercolor paper I stamped the flower image using Versamark ink and the heat embossed it using copper coloured heat embossing powder…I then coloured in the image using Peerless watercolors and set it aside to dry…
Once dry,I masked the image and covered the rest of the paper with Salty Ocean distress ink and spritzed some water for a bit of effect….I then placed the top layer on the card base and added the sentiment which has been heat embossed on a pink banner…
I have used a few sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a great day ahead….!!
