Pretty Pink Flowers For Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge

I was inspired by one of the pictures in this month’s mood board for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge…..but I did not have any stamps that were long stems with flowers….that would have been so easy….but this is a challenge..and the reason why I love such challenges is that they make you think creatively…so I masked the images and extended them to get the look that I wanted…

Here is the mood board for this month’s challenge…I chose to replicate the pink flowers and the embossing is idea was inspired by the tea cup..for the die cut sentiment I chose the colour of the berries..
I started by stamping the flowers a few times on a white watercolour panel with watermark ink and heat embossed them with rose gold embossing powder…to extend the branches, I simply masked the top flower and buds and repeated the process….I coloured in the flowers with my brand new Zig  clean colour  markers and I washed the background with a very light blue watercolour…once dry, I heat embossed half of the sentiment with the same rose gold embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

I then die cut the word ‘you’ from red glitter cardstock as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering it on the card….I also die cut three sequins from the same cardstock to embellish my card..

Vellum Embossed Flowers For The Flower Challenge #20 – Sending Love

While planning today’s card, I wanted to use border stamps and at the same time I wanted the background to be subtle as my vellum flowers and die cut sentiment were going to be quite bright…I usually go for bright and colourful backgrounds for my cards, so this was a good challenge for me..

I will be entering this card for the latest Flower Challenge #20 and the theme for this month is acetate/vellum…
I started by die cutting a white panel for the front of my card using a large dotted rectangle die..then  I stamped the border stamps using Altenew crisp inks – pink diamond and sand dunes..I also heat embossed two strips on this panel using Altenew platinum embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

On a piece of Vellum paper, I stamped the flower and leaf cluster twice and heat embossed them using the same platinum embossing powder…I coloured on the back of these images with my alcohol markers and then adhered these to the card, making sure to leave enough space for the die cut word…
I die cut the word ‘love’ twice using stitched alphabet dies and a bright red cardstock and layered them before placing them on the card front…I stamped the other half of the sentiment on a red label using white ink and adhered it just above the die cut word..and finally, to embellish my card I have added some small red and pink sequins..

You’re In My Thoughts

My card today is a simple one with no layers at all…it might seem like an easy one and I would agree that it didn’t take much time but this was my third try….I ruined the first one because I didn’t have my heat gun ready to dry the smooshed ink quickly so the paper warped…and then on the second one all the ink from my fingers got on the white section of my card front which I wanted to leave nice and clean…well, they do say ‘third time’s a charm’ for a reason…..I was definitely inspired by Therese Calvrid ( Lost In Paper) to create this card and I now know how much practice, patience and planning is needed to make even a simple card look nice..!!

I started with a top fold card base made from 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock….watercolour cardstock might have made my life a bit easy for this card, but I wanted to see how the heavyweight cardstock would react to the ink smooshing….
I have used Altenew inks(pink pearl,minty mint & sea breeze) on a piece of acetate and a water spray bottle to transfer the ink to the card front…I heat set the ink as soon as it was transferred to paper…I didn’t use too much water so the results were great on this particular paper…I did get a slight warping at the base,but I got rid of that by putting the card between 2 layers of clean copy paper and running it through my Cuttlebug…

I then placed my card inside my mini MISTI and positioned the flower and sentiment stamp the way I wanted…I stamped the images using Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and repeat stamped the images for a better and darker result..,to embellish my card I have used just three silver confetti sequins…
