Video: You’re Fancy with Mini Wild Florals

fancy wild florals Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  I hope you’re enjoying the tail end of the holidays!

I wanted to start off the new with some resolutions (that I HOPE to keep).  One of them was to post regular Youtube Videos on the cards I created.  These videos will be posted every weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.  I hope you’ll join me each week!!

For today’s  video, I made a card using our Mini Wild Florals set and our new Couture Color Inks.

I started off by stamping the sentiment from our Shoe Wardrobe 2d. Ed. set in our Rose Gold Bangle Pigment Ink.  I love this sentiment because it’s a bit sassy!  Then I started stamping the different ferns and greenery from the Mini Wild Florals with our Lofty Mint Dye Ink which is our  lightest ink in the Minted Collection.  I stamped the greenery in five different points on the panel with the greenery radiating from the 5 different centers.  I stamped between 4-5 different ferns in the Lofty Mint.

Then I stamped between 2-3 ferns in our Bright Emerald Dye Ink (our mid-tone mint ink) and an additional 2-3 ferns in our Hot Tourmaline Dye Ink (our darkest mint ink).  For the darkest of our greens, I chose the smallest ferns in the set so I didn’t overpower the card.  By keeping the darkest of the ferns to a minimum, I kept the focus on the entire card as a whole.  This card was a bit more involved because of the different “layers” of greenery that I stamped.  I love the depth of the card achieved by the different shades of mint.

Then I heat embossed the five outline florals in the set with some gold glitter embossing powder.  I colored in the florals with three different zig markers blending each layer.  After I finished the coloring, I die cut each floral and popped them up along the five radial points on the stamped panel.

Lastly, I took the spray of dots stamp in the Mini Wild Florals set and stamped it randomly among the greenery with our Rose Gold ink to bring the entire card together.  I hoped you enjoyed the video and post for today!

Make sure you’re following our social media accounts because we’re posting sneak peeks all week of our Anniversary Release.  It’s going to be a big release with tons of inspiration so you don’t want to miss it!

    Wonderful card! I love how you used all the small pieces of greenery. My “random” stamping looks like a hot mess instead of the perfection that your card looks.
