I have created five cards for today! So let’s get started!
My first card is featuring Magnificent Magnolias. I started by creating the background using “smooshing” technique and Distress Oxide inks (Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Iced Spruce) on some mixed media paper. I then stamped the magnolias on it in light gray and colored it with Copic markers (Flower: RV000, 02,04,06,09/ Stem: G14, YG13, E11, E15, E29). I then stamped and silver heat embossed the image again using MISTI stamping tool. I silver heat embossed the magnolias on the cardbase as well and Minor Stripes on the left edge. I narrowed the colored panel, added thin strips of Glossy Fine Silver Glitter paper on both sides and foam mounted it onto the cardbase. The sentiment is from Magnificent Magnolias as well, which I white heat embossed on a black banner. To finish off I added Glass Slippers sequins, Royal Garden Party and Blue Ice Couture Mixes.
Next card shows Fresh Cut Carnations. I created a CAS style card with two carnations.
I stamped one pink and one purple carnation using Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink (pink)/ Soft Orchid, Orchid Crush and Grand Fuchsia (purple). The stems were stamped in Soft Garden and Deep Emerald. I cut them with my cutting machine and set them aside. For the background I dry embossed a white panel using six Double stitched Circle dies, blended Rose Quartz on the center of the circle, added a thin strip of pink glitter tape on right edge and glued the panel flat on my dark gray cardbase.
To assemble the card I foam mounted the carnations as shown in the picture. The sentiment is from Large Florals: Carnation. I white heat embossed it on some dark gray cardstock fussy cut it and added one more layer of fussy cut white cardstock underneath. The sentiment was added on the flowers along with some silver thread. I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Royal Garden Party and Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix.
The third card for today is featuring Good Tidings Cluster, one of our gift with purchase items. I created a shaker card using Bokeh Burst Round set along with Good Tidings Cluster set.
I started by stamping and coloring the Good Tidings Cluster twice. I stamped it in Crystal Pewter and colored them using Copic markers. Copics I used are: BV31, B 63, B66, B69, BG13, BG15, BG18. My berries are gold instead of red, which were colored with gold Pico embellisher. I fussy cut the images and set them aside. For the shaker I stamped the Bokeh Burst Round on a white wood grain textured cardstock in ombre blue using Arctic Sky, Azurite, Violet Fringe. I cut the circle using coordinating die and assembled the shaker element together. The background is a wood patterned paper and the shaker elements are sequins from Medallion Gold, Midnight Frost and Blue Ice. The Good Tidings Clusters are foam mounted and the sentiment from Christmas Mini Cluster was gold heat embossed on some vellum banner and glued onto the card.
Next up is my alcohol ink magnolias 🙂 .
I stamped Magnolia Field on a glossy cardstock in some water based ink in light pink and colored the panel with alcohol inks by dripping the ink and tilting the paper. The outline stamped with ink can hold the alcohol ink a little bit, so that the ink stays inside of the outline. Some ink went out, but I think it looks okay as one of the background color. Alcohol inks I used are Flamingo, Shell Pink, Mountain Rose, Sunshine Yellow, Aqua, Limeade and Hazelnut. After done with coloring, I gold heat embossed Magnolia Field again with the help of MISTI. I then cut the panel along the outline of some magnolia flowers. To make the side panel I swiped Aqua and Limeade on a Yupo paper using a felt applicator. I glued the side panel flat on my A2 cardbase and foam mounted the magnolia panel on it. I stamped the sentiment from Fresh Cut Carnations on a snippet of white cardstock in Noir, cut it in a banner, matted with a brown banner and foam mounted it. Some gold sequins were my finishing touch.
My last card for today is a Waterfall card.
My colored panel is one layer. I chose a watercolor cardstock to stamp the images using water based markers. I used Tombow brush markers to scribble on the stamps from Waterfall set. Only the rocks were stamped in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. After stamping I blended the colors a little bit using a damp brush. Water foam was white heat embossed. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped in Noir. I narrowed down the front panel and gold heat embossed the edges before I foam mounted it on the cardbase. On both side of cardbase I adhered thin strips of Adhesive foil paper gold . I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Sugar Cookie and Spotlight.
