MFT Roses All Over ~ Gansai Tambi Water colored ~ Celebrate Card

Hey everyone,

I’m starting the week off with this very bright and bold card as my entry for the My Favorite Things Sketch challenge that they host on their blog each week.  

 

My Favorite Things Roses all over Background stamp colored with Gansai Tambi Watercolors with gold embossing handmade card.

 

Using My Favorite Things’ Roses All over background stamp, I stamped the image onto a piece of Canson XL Watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and heat embossed the image with Rangers Gold Super Fine embossing powder.

I knew I wanted to use watercolors on this card so I got my Gansai Tambi Watercolors out that I received for my birthday a couple of months ago.  
Working on one rose at a time, I added a little water and added my color loosely on parts of the petals, taking care not to cover the entire rose. Then, using a waterbrush I dispersed a bit of water around the rose.
Continuing on, I colored each rose individually by adding color and adding water. The colors I used for this background were number 35 (Carmine red) and number 36 (Wine red).

I die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Scallop Basic Edge die and I die cut a square out of the middle (keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong – whew!).
To put my card together, I adhered the water colored panel to a black cardstock base, added a mat and adhered the water colored square on top with some foam tape for added dimension.
To finish the card, I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Heart Bouquet stamp and cut it using My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strip.
I really love using black, red and gold color combinations and I think this card turned out better than I envisioned in my head.

Altenew’s bold blossom Mother’s Day card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with another Mother’s Day inspired card, done three different ways. This time I used Altenew’s bold blossom layering stamp set with the coordinating die.
I started by stamping each successive layer from lightest to darker color on some Simon Says Stamp 120# cardstock. I used Memento dye ink in Tuxedo black to stamp the outline of each rose using my Misti stamping tool to ensure consistent stamping. I then cut each flower with the coordinating die.

Colors of the inks I used in each card, from lightest to darkest.

Pink flowers: Memento’s Angel Pink, Rose bud and Love letters.
Blue flowers: Memento’s Summer sky, Bahama blue and Paris dusk.
Yellow flowers: Hero Arts Lemon Yellow, SSS hybrid Lemon Rest and Lawn Fawn’s Carrot.

Using Tim Holtz distress watercolor cardstock and Twinkling H20’s iridescent watercolor allowed me to create a simple and soft watercolor background for my roses to sit on. I love using Twinkling H20’s watercolors, they can be very subtle with just enough shimmer to stand out.  Using Hero Arts’ Celebrate Everyday sentiment stamps, I stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” in the lower right hand corner with archival black ink.

To finish the card, I adhered various color card bases to a top folding A2 size card and continued layering the watercolor background piece and finally adhering the roses with some foam adhesive for added dimension.

I love how these cards turned out. They are very simple and yet very elegant for the special ladies in my life for upcoming Mother’s Day celebration.

I decided to play along with Altenew Inspiration Challenge over on their blog and enter the pink card for the May challenge. Check out their blog for more information. Wish me luck!

Stampendous’ Rose Bouquet Mother’s Day card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with a Mother’s Day inspired card being that Mother’s Day in about three weeks away. To get started, I stamped Stampendous’ Rose Bouquet roses, leaves and glass jar on some Spectrum Noir paper. This paper is recommended for alcohol based markers as it allows for ease of blending and minimizes the potential for bleed through. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored all the images and cut them with the coordinating die set. 

Here is the list of marker I used

Roses: CR8, DR3, DR5, DR7
Leaves: CG2, CG3, CG4, DG3
Vase: BT1, BT2, IB1, IG1, IG2
Stems: CG2, CG3

Since the bouquet image when assembled was relatively large, I choose to make this card an A7 sized card. I wanted my card to have a frame around the image and since I do not own a die cut in the size I needed, I had to get a little creative. I cut a piece of red cardstock down to 5” by 7”, using Lawn Fawns Stitched Scalloped Borders die, I cut out the middle to create a frame border for my card.

I adhered the image partly flat on the card and partly on foam tape to add dimension. Using Lawn Fawns Happy Happy Happy sentiments and die set, I die cut the scripty “happy” in black cardstock three times and glued it together with multi medium matte.

To complete the card, I embossed the rest of the sentiment with white embossing powder on black cardstock, cut it using a banner die from Lawn Fawn and added a few red sequence pieces, as well as a little shimmer on the roses for a little bling.

That completes this card and I hope you found it inspiring for Mother’s Day.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
