Technique Tuesday April Release
Hi friends, Hip hip Hooray… Today’s Technique Tuesday’s April release blog day! And… On today’s blog I’m sharing how I created these floral greeting cards featuring the new Green House Society Meadow Flowers Stamp Set & Meadow Flowers Crafting Die I’m your last stop of the release blog hop, down below you’ll find the full line up list for you to hop along with us, as we hope you get inspired with the whole lots of inspiration projects that the Technique Tuesday Team, and Guest Designers had created using the new Stamps & Crafting Dies from the new April’s release.
Just a quick Note: If you miss any stop along the way, you can always start over from the Technique Tuesday Blog. So without further ado keep on reading the tutorial.
For the first example I started by stamping with VersaFine black ink the Meadow Flowers in different places of the white card panel that measured W4.25” X H 5.5” creating my own background. Once I had all the card panel stamped I let it dry for a few seconds before I started water coloring every cluster with watercolor brush pens in orange/pink tones for the Flowers & green tones for the Leaves and the Steams. Soon after I was done with the water coloring I set the card panel aside to dry. In the meanwhile I stamped in a piece of white card stock one of the sentiments from the same stamp set with black ink, which I ran through the die cutting machine by using one of the dies from the Essential Stitched Labels along with the stamped piece of white card stock creating that way the sentiment for the card as you can see in the picture above.
As soon as the water colored card panel was dry, I ran the card panel through the die cutting machine using the coordinated die to die cut the cluster from the center of the panel. Because I wanted to add a little bit of dimension by adhering fun foam in between the card panel, and the cluster as you can see in the picture above. Once the cluster was inlaid it I trimmed down the card panel, and I adhered it to an A2 size side folding white card base. To finish the card off I adhered with foam mounting tape the sentiment that I had previously stamped in the stitched label to the card, and as a finishing touch I tied up a bow using hemp cord and I adhered it to the flowers along with some clear sequins that I adhered here and there for a sparkle touch.
For the second example I clear heat embossed the card panel. However, I used Kraft color card stock instead of white. Once the card panel was completely clear heat embossed I adhered it to a side folding white card base, and I set it aside. Then I ran through the die cutting machine white card stock along with the largest size stitched label creating the center of the card panel as I wanted the flower to stand out. Soon after the die cutting was done, I adhered one of the two extra clusters that I created previously by stamping, water colored, and die cut it out a piece of white card stock, once the cluster was adhered in one of the sides of the label I stamped with black ink the Hooray sentiment that is included in the Meadow Flower stamp set, and to compliment it I stamped in a separate piece of white card stock the Happy Birthday from the Sassy Birthday stamp set also by Technique Tuesday.
Soon after I had all of the elements for the center of the card panel, I adhered the label to the card panel with foam mounting tape. And I adhered the complimentary Happy Birthday sentiment which I trimmed down in a strip form on top of it by adhering part of it with liquid glue, and the part on top of the kraft card stock with foam mounting tape to level up the label dimension created from the foam mounting tape underneath the label.
For the last example I kept the same idea as the second by clear heat embossing the whole card panel. However, if you see it closely you can notice that the flowers were clear embossed in a different way, also I can see the difference as I changed the placement of the water colored flowers by adhering them on the other side of the label. And… the last thing that I changed was the different sentiment that I stamped in the opposite side of it, by the way the sentiment is also included in the Meadow Flower stamp set.
To finish this card off I tied up a bow by using once again hemp cord, although I didn’t adhere any type of sequins to the last 2 examples I did added glossy accent to the black Anther Filaments for a shiny look not just to the last 2 but to all 3 cards in general, as well as I cover all of them with Nuvo Shimmer Pen for a shimmering touch.
