Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far and getting used to say or write 2020 instead of 2019 😄 !!!
Today I have a trio of shaped floral cards to share with you. I used some of the new floral cling stamps from Share the Love release by Penny Black. You may noticed already… the Valentine’s day is coming ❤️!
The first card is showcasing the beautiful wreath out of roses, called Winsome Wreath cling stamp (40-721).
I stamped the Winsome Wreath on a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock in black Memento ink.
I created the background first using smooshing technique. I used Distress inks in yellow, pink, light blue and light green. I applied the ink colors on a piece of clear acetate sheet, sprayed pearlized water (water mixed with some pearl pigments) and pressed it onto the stamped panel. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result.
After the stamped panel was dry, I started coloring the image using Copic markers. I colored the roses mainly in R30s and added a touch of orange using some YR colors. The leaves were colored in YG and G Copic markers. I also added a little bit of shadow in C colors. After the coloring was done, I stamped the image once again to get a crisp outline. I could do it as I left the stamp in the MISTI tool.
The sentiment is from Hug me (30-668) mini sentiment set which I heat embossed in Liquid Platinum directly on the colored panel. I partially cut the image using a Double Stitched circle die (The Ton) and fussy cut the part where the roses are. I traced the shape of the panel on a extra piece of white cardstock and cut it to mat the colored panel. I made a circle cardbase using the same circle die I used for the partial die cutting and adhered the colored panel on it.
I finished off the card by scattering some clear iridescent sequins and covering the roses with glitter using a clear Wink of Stella pen.
My second card is a heart shaped card and is featuring Passionate Blooms cling stamp (40-718). This floral arrangement is in a heart shape, so I followed the original shape to make the card.
To create the card shape I first cut two hearts from a Bristol vellum paper using my Cricut. On one heart panel I stamped the Passionate Blooms in Tattered Rose (big flowers) and Antique Linen (small flowers and leaves) Distress ink.
I colored the image using Zig brush markers and a water brush as shown in the pictures. I know, I’m posting many pictures today :). I went wild and took too many pictures so that I couldn’t pick only two or three from them 😁.
I decided to go with the light blue background which shows the heart shape of the card. The sentiment is from Hug me (30-668) mini sentiment set. I stamped it in a black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it.
I adhered the upper edge of the two heart panels to make them into a card and finished off the card by adding some clear rhinestones.
Next circle card is showcasing Rose Romance cling stamp set (40-719). This stamp set includes two stamps ; one simple rose wreath that I used for my card and a small heart with a string.
I cut a circle from some Canson watercolor paper and gold heat embossed the Rose Romance image on it. I colored the rose wreath with Mijello Mission Gold watercolor. I also colored the area outside the wreath in red, pink and orange and splattered the same colors and white watercolor on the panel.
Next I gold heat embossed the sentiment from Love Language stamp set (30-667) on a piece of watercolor paper and watercolored it in the same colors I used for the main panel. I then cut it with a stitched circle die.
To create the red circle cardbase I cut two circles slightly larger than the front panel from some heavyweight red cardstock and adhered them on an edge. I mounted the front panel flat on the red cardbase and foam mounted the small circle piece with the sentiment on it. I finished off the card by adding three red rhinestones to it.
I had a blast coloring the Penny Black floral images! It was challenging to me to make some shaped cards using them but it was also fun to do.
