Farm Fresh Floral Card | ScrapbookPal

Happy Saturday! I’m up on the Scrapbookpal blog today sharing this fun floral card (my favourite type of card to make!) along with a new (to me!) technique, ink blending on kraft paper. 

To create this card I started by stamping the floral arrangement and the water can image from the Farm Fresh Flowers Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps using my MISTI stamp positioner and Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I left the stamp in the MISTI as I plan to double stamp.

I colored them using copic markers in the following combinations :
Leaves : G21, G24; YG03, YG63; YG03, YG13, YG23
Stems : E55, E59
Flowers : V12, V15, V17; R37, R39; RV63, RV66; R05, YR04; Y35, YR07
Water can : N0, N2, N4, N6; BV00, BV02

After coloring I placed the floral arrangement back into the MISTI and stamped the image using Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I die cut the colored images using the coordinating dies

Next I created the background for the card using the new Art Deco Patterns stencil. I used the one with the larger masked area, along with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold.

I added the colored floral arrangement with foam tape on top of the water can image. For the sentiment I used the “thankful” stamp from the Bitty Buzzwords : Fall stamp set along with the “For your Friendship”. I heat embossed both on to kraft cardstock using Versamark Watermark ink and gold embossing powder. I die cut the word “thankful” using the coordinating dies and trimmed down the “for your frienship” into a strip. I added the thankful die cut using foam tape and adhered the sentiment strip with some liquid adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed this card that I created and it inspires you to create something fun for fall!

Happy Crafting!

Kraft Slimline card (with Concord and 9th)

Happy Saturday y’all! Does it really matter anymore what day it is? I feel like I’m living the same day over and over again in an infinite loop. Super grateful that I have my crafting stash to distract me and give me an outlet! All that hoarding is playing off! Speaking of hoarding, this card is made using a really old Concord and 9th set, but it was brand new in my stash!

Copic coloring on Kraft paper is one on my favorite techniques, I especially love using it for fall cards, as the muted effect works well with fall colors! I started off by die-cutting a slimline card front from kraft paper, then stamping the large floral bouquet from the Hello lovely set using brown copic friendly ink. Then I colored in the image, using the copic combos listed below.

Copic Combos : YG 67-63-03, G 94-YG 63-21, RV 69-66-63, V 17-15-12, RV 09

Once I was done coloring, I heat embossed a large thanks sentiment on the open space, and added some clear and Golden nuvo drops to finish of the card before adhering it to a white 3.5 x 8.5 card base.
