Clearly Floral Birthday

Hi there.  Been lacking energy lately, but wanted to complete a card I started.  I’m sharing a CAS Mix Media floral birthday card using one of my favourite sets from Clearly Besotted in one of my favourite colour combos.  These flowers are large and fun to colour.

 

 

Stamped the flowers with Memento black ink on a stitched X-Press It rectangle.  Coloured with Copics.

 

 

Masked the image and blended Smoky Slate ink with a Clarity brush through a Halftone stencil for the background.

 

 

White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and mounted with foam adhesive.  Added clear shimmer to the flowers to finish.

And that is it.  Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your day.

Block Stamping Lily CASE

Hi there.  Another post tonight and it’s a quick one.

 

 

Using ink cubes, distress inks in rainbow colours were applied in strips on an acrylic block, then spritz with water, and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.

 

 

The Lily was stamped twice with Versafine black ink on the panel as well as on a scrap of white shimmer paper.  The solid Lily centre image was then inked with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and stamped on the shimmer paper Lily.  It was fussy cut out and paper pieced on the watercolour panel before the whole piece was die cut with a rectangle stitched die.

 

 

The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.  Clear shimmer was added to the Lily and a few sparkly clear sequins finushed off the card.  And that does it.  Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your day.

Friend Bouquet

Hello there.  I received my order from Simon Says Stamps yesterday and knew I had to ink up one of their stamp sets right away.  I also wanted to try something a little different for today’s simple friendship card.

I decided to give my Copics a break and pulled out my Prismacolor pencils.  The flower bouquet was white heat embossed on a black Stitched Rectangle.

It was coloured with white and black pencils.  First time colouring on colour cardstock other than Kraft and it’s kinda cool.  I may have to try this more often.  For some sparkle, clear shimmer was added to the petals and buds.  It’s hard to tell, but it is really sparkly against the black IRL.

I didn’t have a nice yellow colour cardstock, so the friend sentiment was die cut from a scrap of X-Press It paper and coloured with Y06 Copic marker.  Ok, so my Copics didn’t truly get a break after all, 😂  For dimension, friend was die cut from black cardstock three more times.  The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and some Clear Rain Drops finished off the card.

Thank you for your visit.  Have a great day!
