Floral Bouquet Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

To create this card I started by stamping all three of the images from Honey Bee StampsFloral Vase stamp set with VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss.

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

Next up where the flowers using distress oxide ink in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.

The last layer of ink blending was the center of the flowers that I added using  Scattered Straw distress oxide ink.

Next I die cut out the inked images along with the card and pick for the sentiment using the coordinating dies. I embossed a sentiment on to the card.

To finish off the card I added a little texture to the card front using dry embossing and the Crystal Kaleidoscope Background stencil and assembled the images using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

Rainbow Candle Birthday Card | MFT Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, it’s the weekend in two days! I’m on the ScrapbookPal blog today to share a fun rainbow card with you! Sometimes I love making layered and detailed cards, but sometimes you just have 10 mins to craft, so here’s some inspiration for such a situation! 

To create this card :

I started my ink blending a rainbow on an A2 sheet of bristol smooth card stock. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet.

Next I die cut the candles from the My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake multiple times from the rainbow inked cardstock.

I die cut the flames from some scrap cardstock backed with low tack tape so it stays in place so that I could color it using copic markers in Y13 and Y38.

I embossed a sentiment from the My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.

Using the negative as a guide, I adhered the candle die cuts to the card front with the embossed sentiment. 

Lastly, I added the candle flames and covered them with glossy accents to add a little dimension.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

Citrus Blooms | Pink Fresh Studios

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends! I hope that your weekend is relaxing and filled with a ton of crafty time! I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and try out the latest trend of layered stencils for coloring floral stamps! Today I am using the Citrus Bloom stamp from Pink Fresh Studios with the coordinating Citrus Bloom Layering Stencils.

To create this card I started with an A2 piece of white card stock to match the guidelines and I found it easier to ink first, then add the stamped image.

I started with inking up the flowers on the image using distress oxide ink in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, and Wilted Violet.

Next I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.

The last layer of ink blending was the fruits. I used Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade for the oranges and Squeezed Lemon and Scattered Straw for the lemons. 

Once I was done inking I used VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss the Citrus Bloom stamp onto the inked panel.

Lastly I die cut the images using the coordinating dies, and also diecut the Simply Diamonds cover die from green card stock, the sentiment “hello” from the Darling Dahlias die cuts to assemble the card.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something!

Messy Watercolored Florals | Pinkfresh Studios

Happy Monday y’all! Hope that everyone had a great, crafty weekend and is adjusting well to time the time change! I’m popping in today to share my first post as part of the ScrapbookPal Design team! I was lucky enough to guest design for them last month, you can see the post here! If you know me, then you probably know that I love creating with floral stamps! So of course I jumped at the chance to create with the Pink Fresh Studio’s Dahlia Bunch stamp set. I usually do most of my coloring with COPIC markers but this stamp seemed the perfect one to watercolor!

To create this card I, stamped the image from the Dahlia Bunch stamp set using watermark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Next I chose out the color palette I wanted to use on the card. To watercolor I used Distress Inks in worn lipstick (mini cube), spun sugar (mini cube), wilted violet (mini cube), shaded lilac (mini cube), shabby shutters (mini cube), and mowed lawn (mini cube).

Then, I watercolored the embossed image by smooshing the distress ink on to a smooth surface and adding water before bringing it to paper. Once it dried, I diecut it out using the coordinating die.

While the watercolored panel was drying, I started working on the background for the card. I picked out the matching lighter shades in distress oxides to create an ink blended panel. I used peeled paint, spun sugar, and shaded lilac. To add some depth to the background, I added splatters of white and gold paint. I also die cut a panel from using the Pinkfresh Studio Simple Hexagons and splattered it with some gold paint too.

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!
