Encouragement Floral Cards
Hi friends, welcome back to another blog post! As Spring is around the corner on today’s blog I’ll be sharing with you, 2 uplifting floral cards featuring the Fancy Blooms stamp & coordinated die by Pinkfresh Studio inspired by their March Floral Challenge. So without further ado let’s jump into the blog.
For both card panel I started by inking it up a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with Chipped Sapphire distress oxide ink. However, for the first example I used the solid ink blended background, and for the second I used a cover die as you’ll see down below in the next example. After the ink blending was done I used the Folklore die which I ran through the die cutting machine twice, 1 to die cut out of white card stock, and the second time to die cut it out of the ink blended background. Once the die die cutting was done I adhered one to the inked background, and the other to a white card panel and I set them aside.
For the florals I stamped first then I gold heat embossed 2 of the floral images from the Fancy Bloom stamp set which you’ll see in a moment. But in order to achieve that a must thing to do is to use a stamping tool, as you’ll need to reposition the stamping for the heat embossing. So for the coloring I used alcohol markers in the following colors: RV000, RV00, RV02 to color the flowers. G00, G02 to color the leaves, and B95, B97, B97 to color the buds for a contrast.
Once I was done coloring I went back to the stamping tool as I mentioned, because I didn’t move the stamps from the stamping tool I was able to reposition them to stamp them once again with a clear embossing ink to gold embossing them.
Shortly after the heat embossing was done I ran them through the die cutting machine alone with their coordinated dies, and once the die cutting was done I adhered them in the center to each of the card panels as you can see in the pictures.
Last but certainly not least, I used the Lush Greenery stamp & coordinated dies to create the sentiments for the cards. For the one with the solid inked background I gold heat embossed the sentiments, and for the one with the white I used the Chipped Sapphire distress oxide color ink to stamped the sentiments.
To finish these cards off I adhered pink pearls for the center of the flowers in one of the cards, and a mix of sequins which I adhered them here and there.
