Kind Cosmo Floral Cards
Hello lovelies, and welcome to another blog post! On today’s blog I’d love to share with you these four yet clean and simple cards, that I created featuring the Kind Cosmo stamp and Crafting die by Technique Tuesday. Also today I’ll be sharing the distress oxide color combo that I’ve been loving and using in my cards. So without a further ado let’s jump into the blog!
For the First two cards, I started by inking it up a piece of Bristol Smooth paper that measured H5.5’’ X W 4.25’’ with the following distress oxides inks.
‒ Festive Berries
‒ Abandoned Coral
‒ Picked Raspberry
‒ Fossilized Amber
Once the card panel was all inked up, I set it aside while I stamped with black ink in another white card panel the flowers from the Kind Cosmo Stamp set, After I was done stamping, and the inks were dry out, I ran the card panels into the die cutting machine with the coordinating crafting die to die cut the flowers out of the center from both panels. As I was planning to switch them over by using the inlay technique.
So… for the first card as you can see in the picture above, I adhered the inked background to a white side folding card base. Then I inlaid the black stamped flower, however I decided to add a pop of color to the center of them by using R22 and Y38 copic markers. To finished it off I white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the stamp set in one of the lower sides of the card.
For the second example instead of just stamping the flowers, I decided to white heat embossed and added a little bit of dimension by inlaying fun foam in between the layers. As you can see this was even simpler as I could have totally skipped the white card panel, and adhered the flower directly to the white card base. But I just like the edge, trim or frame that the extra panel adds to the card. So went and I adhered the white card panel that I’ve leftover from the previous card. And to finished it off I kept the same idea by stamping and clear embosing in the same place, the same sentiment with Abandoned Coral. Although for this card I decided to add a few crystal sequins here and there.
Here you can see both cards side by side, down below you’ll see the other two cards that I created for this blog.
For these cards I used the same distress color inks, Although I used a different technique as you can see for the first two I used the Ink Blending technique, and for these two I used the Ink Smooshing technique by using an acrylic block and water to inked up card panels.
