Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a healthy week so far and having some time for crafting.
Today I have six cards to share with you ! Yes, I’ve been busy making them :). They are all featuring the new items from Secret Garden Release by Penny Black. I think you’ve already check them out. If not, hope you’ll check out the pretty spring-like stamp designs soon.Branch Frames (51-624) die set and Wings & Vases (30-704) stamp set. Branch Frames (51-624) set from some watercolor paper. I also cut the little flowers using Swinging (51-618) die set and colored them all with Karin brush markers. I set them aside to dry.
I white heat embossed a butterfly from Wings & Vases (30-704) set twice on a watercolor paper panel and did light watercolor wash on it in yellow, orange and green. I gold heat embossed the other butterfly from the same set, colored it also in yellow, orange and green and fussy cut it.Magical Friendship (30-707) set in a black pigment ink on the background panel and clear heat embossed it. I trimmed down the background panel a bit and foam mounted it on a gray cardbase. I then added the colored Branch Frame (51-624) stacked on some die cut frame from white cardstock to the card. I then embellished the frame with the branches and little flowers and placed the butterfly on the frame. I added yellow Stickles on the center of the flowers to finish off the card. Framed (51-622) die set, the flowers from Wings & Vases (30-704) set and the Daisy Collection (30-696) mini clear stamp set. Framed (51-622) die set from some heavyweight white cardstock. I cut the frame three more times to stack them together for some dimension. I stamped the sentiment from Magical Friendship (30-707) set on the inner square and clear heat embossed it. The frame was silver heat embossed two times.
I then stamped the flowers from Wings & Vases (30-704) set and the Daisy Collection (30-696) set in Memento black ink, colored them with Copic markers and cut them all out using coordinating cut outs (Wings & Vases Cut Out (51-619), Daisy Collection Cut Out (51-616)).
I chose a soft pink cardbase and ink blended pink DIs along the perimeter of the front. I splattered clear water and dabbed it off with a paper towel to add some texture. I also splattered white opaque ink.Daisy Collection (30-696)) left from the previous card. So I decided to make a CAS card using them :).
I created a bokeh background on a pink cardbase using white pigment ink and home made circle stencil. I splattered white opaque ink too. I arranged the daisies in the rhombic window of the front panel, adhered them on the back of the panel and foam mounted it on the cardbase.Celebrate & Enjoy (51-612) die from silver glitter cardsock and three more times from white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it to the card. Layered Leaves (51-633) die. I’ve made a simple card using the die and an alcohol inked YUPO panel. Magical Friendship (30-707) was stamped in StazOn black ink on the YUPO panel.
The Layered Leaves (51-633) was cut four times from some heavyweight white cardstock. I stacked them together. I heat embossed the uppermost layer in Iridescent Sparkle EP and added gold EP to the tip of each leaf.Layered Leaves (51-633) on it. I love how this turned out 🙂 !!! Petal Poetry (40-738) cling stamp. It’s a brushstroke image. Like other brushstroke stamps by Penny Black, it is GORGEOUS!
After the stamping was done I colored in the image using a water brush and Karin brush markers. I watercolored the right bottom edge in green and light brown, ink blended in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron DI over the area and splattered white opaque ink.Magical Friendship (30-707) was stamped in a black pigment ink on the colored panel and clear heat embossed. I mounted the panel flat on a gray cardbase. I trimmed off a side of the colored panel to show a thin part of the cardbase. Vintage Postcard (40-743) cling stamp set and the Secret Garden (30-682) stamp set. Secret Garden (30-682) set on a watercolor paper panel using Distress inks. I used the mini cubes to stamp the images partly in different colors.
After stamping I colored the images using Karin brush markers and blended the colors with a water brush. The sentiment from Blooming Sentiments (30-703) set was stamped in black and clear heat embossed.Vintage Postcard (40-743) on the same panel in Watering Can archival ink. I trimmed the panel to slightly smaller than A2 size and glued it on a gray cardbase. To finish off I added some clear iridescent sequins. Penny Black and inspire you with my cards today. Hope you’re all doing well ! Stay healthy! Hugs, TaeEun
