Beautiful Flower Cards
I hope you are having an Amazing day. On today’s blog I would like to share with you three different Floral Cards that I’ve created this week featuring the Beautiful Flower stamp set. I am not an expert but I like to learn new things everyday. And, let me tell you water coloring is one of the things out of my comfort zone. But, I had so much fun water coloring these cards. So, Let’s Get Started!
For my first example, I started by die cutting in piece of Canson watercolor paper using a die cutting machine and a coordinate die from the Beautiful Flowers stamp and die set. Then, I took the positive piece out and I water color the background. To watercolor the background I used Prima Marketing Watercolor Confection sets in Odyssey and Decadent Pies. So, to begin with I started by wetting the whole card panel and adding a little bit of #81 London watercolor from the Odyssey set. Then, I used the help of the heat gun to speed the process of drying. Once, it was all dry out I added some splatters by using the watercolor #35 from the Decadent set. After the splatters I set it aside. In the meantime I heat embossing and water-coloring the flower. For the embossing I used Fine Detail Gold embossing powder and to watercolor the flower I used Zig Brush Colors pens. Here are the colors that I used.
Greens Mid Green, Light Green, Olive Green.
Blues Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Persian Green
After, I water colored the flower I used a Stitched rectangle frame to die cut the card panel. Then, I stamped and clear heat embossed on the bottom right side with Versafine Onyx Black two of the sentiments from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set and I adhered it to a white card base.
Before, I adhered the positive die cutting back to the panel. I used the coordinated die to die cut a piece of blue foam fun.This step was optional as was only for adding dimension between both parts of the die cutting as you can see in the pictures above.
To finished it up I added a few of the Birthday Cake sequins for embellishment.
For my second example, I created a very Classic, Clean and Simple card by using again the inlay die cutting technique. So, I started by die cutting out of a white A2 standard size card panel a different image from the Beautiful Flower stamp and coordinate die set as you can see in the picture above.
After the coloring, I used the coordinated die once again. To die cut a dimensional piece out of black foam fun and I adhered to the backed of the flower with liquid glue layering it on top of the card base. Last but not least, I white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Spiritual Sentiments stamp set with Detail White embossing powder in a piece of black cardstock. And to finish it up I added a little bit of shimmer with the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen and I added Silver Lining sequins as embellishments.
For my third and last example, I created a type of Messy Abstract watercolor painting as the card panel. And, for that I started by gold heat embossing with Detail Gold embossing powder the largest floral image from the stamp set in a piece of Canson watercolor paper. I heat embossed it twice, one on top and one on the bottom of the card panel. Then, I water colored with a mix of the Prima Marketing Confection in Odyssey, Decadent and Complexion watercolor sets + Zig color brush pens. The watercolors that I used for the card panel were #33, #34 from the Decadent set. For the flowers I used a mix of #76 Maui, #82 Inca, #74 Rome, #83 Budapest, #80 Jamaica, #81 London. Plus, Scarlet Red, Pink, Dark Pink by Zig color brush pens. And, for the splatters I used #12 Black.
After the water coloring was done I white heat embossed two of the sentiments from the Messages for Everyday stamp set in a piece of black cardstock. Then, I adhered the card panel to a white card base and I adhered the backed of the sentiments with foam mounting tape to the card
