Heelllloooo Friends!! How are you today? I have a packed blog post with three cards using one stamp set, a video and a bonus. Why you might ask? Altenew asked me to guest design on their blog today and I got a little carried away creating with their lovely floral stamps. 🙂
I love creating window cards with mega dimension & I love flowers so it was easy to create three cards with the “Botanical Garden” stamp set…*swoon*
My favorite .. adding texture with a rag technique… was used with copic solution. To accentuate the flowers I used Black foam to make them pop by gluing the black die cut foam sightly off center. The video explains it all. (If you like the video a thumbs up is always appreciated)
Do you subscriber to my channel ?.. it’s a good way to stay in the loop. 🙂
These are the colors that I used for the card in the video. If you are wondering where the wonderful large grid paper pad is from you can find it here.
For both cards I wanted to create a subtle silhouette background with the flowers.
The background was colored with copics and I used the rag technique again for added texture.
I still had some flowers left that I stamped and had die cut so I colored them up making a point to leave a white area on each flower. This is a super simple card and it came together quickly.
I colored the sentiment with markers and added a few sequins for good measure.
I always like a pop of color on the inside of my cards. The inside of the card is a good spot for those leftover bits.
Now for the bonus part. I always love to stamp on those wedding R.S.V.P.’s The paper is always delicious and usually it’s a happy surprise for the bride. On this particular rsvp card I used the “Best Mom”stamp set because it’s a pretty flower and it’s simpler to color.
