A handful of Wishful Wildflowers

Hello, it’s LauraJane today. Hope you are having a beautiful day.

For today’s post I have several cards that I put together using the Wishful Wildflowers stamp set and the coordinating dies. After shopping at the new Boutique at The Ton, I simply had to play with the Peony Color Burst powder:)) and was delighted to see how different shades of red/pink could be achieved by varying the amount  of water used to mix with the powder.

These were my first two creative experiments: Using ALL the images from Wishful Wildflowers stamp set.  Both pieces are Heat embossed with Liquid Platinum EP. The top one is Watercolor paper and the bottom is Neenah Solar White 80# smooth.  For the pink one, I simply added more clear water to the paper and to the powder in the well of my pallette.TheTon-LauraJaneAfter playing with the color Burst I decided to use the pink piece and cut all the images out with the coordinating dies.  Then I heat embossed with Liquid Platinum EP the two arching images from Pragmatic Wreaths. Stamped the wreath blooms with Hollywood Star and Lemondrop. Added detail with  several ziggys to the Wishful Wildflower blooms and the wreath foliage. I will list the individual markers I used at the end of this post.Cut them out with the coordinating dies. Also I cut several Geometric Lattice Coverplate Die.

Here is a photo of all the bits and pieces before assembling my cards.TheTon-LaraJane4-18c

I was Thrilled to be able come up with THREE cards using the above supplies! With a panel of Freestyle Stripes thrown in:))TheTon-LauraJane-418a

For the first one, I needed a Wedding card:

I took one Geometric Lattice Coverplate cut from white CS and layered onto a white cardbase. Then I arranged the large cluster of wildflowers with a simple arch from Pragmatic Wreaths. Heat embossed the sentiment with Liquid Platinum EP onto black CS. And Embellished with Valentine Icing Couture Mix.IMG_4270The next one I cut the Geometric Lattice Coverplate from yellow CS. Then layered both arching images from Pragmatic Wreaths and several loose blooms from the colored Wishful Wildflowers . For the sentiment, I cut a 2 1/4″ circle with the Double Stitched Circle Dies (Small), stamped with Noir ink. Finished with Raspberry Sparkles couture Mix.IMG_4275

With a few more colored elements left over, I put together one last card. The panel stamped with Freestyle Stripes, inked with Amber Citrine, was cut with the largest  Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). Layered it onto a White panel cut with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large).  Arranged the last of the blooms and wreath elements, cut in two pieces. Embellished with Glitter tape and  Raspberry Sparkles couture Mix. The sentiment is Liquid Platinum EP onto black CS.IMG_4277

Hope you enjoyed seeing my cards today, and it inspires you to PLAY, experiment and Create something you LOVE!
