Wishful Wildflowers – Two Ways


Happy Thursday everyone!! Brenda here with you today to share two ways to use the fabulous Wishful Wildflowers set and Coordinating Dies from the Spring Release!!



For the first card, I stamped the single flowers and leaf images from the Wishful Wildflowers set with clear embossing ink and heat embossed using the beautiful Rose Gold Embossing Powder onto Bristol cardstock. I colored those images with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. The next step was to cut the images with the Wishful Wildflower Coordinating Dies. Two Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) were used to create a frame. I adhered a piece of acetate to the frame and placed some foam adhesive on the back. Several Couture Mixes (Belle’s Dress, Pink Diamond, Raspberry Sparkle & Cotton Candy Puff) were used create a mixture that would match the colors in the flowers perfectly. I then carefully placed the sequin mix in the center of a watercolored panel and placed the die-cut frame over them. I adhered the die-cut flowers onto two corners of the frame. The Hello Word Die was used to die cut the sentiment and I used several layers of the Rose Gold Embossing Powder to emboss the die-cut and placed it in the center of the frame. As a finishing touch, I used Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to create little water droplets on the flowers.


For the second card, I again stamped the single flowers from the Wishful Wildflowers set, but this time with Caviar Ink, since I chose to color these with Copic markers in vibrant colors. I die-cut all the images again with the Wishful Wildflower Coordinating Dies. I chose a polka dot embossed paper for the background, matted that with white cardstock and placed onto a black background. I arranged the die-cut images onto the background, adhering the bottom of the image flat, but using dimensional adhesive toward the top of the flower to give the bouquet a lot of dimension. I love this sentiment from the Dearest Peony set, which was stamped with clear embossing ink and  heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a strip of black cardstock. It was matted with a thin strip of white and placed near the bottom of the card. I added a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix to add a little sparkle. Seriously, I have to force myself not to use these on every card…wink;)!!! I also used a white gel pen to create a little dimension in the center of each flower.


That’s it from me today!! Remember, we have a fun challenge going on for the month of May!! Choose a line on the tic-tac-toe board that Effie created and post your creations in the gallery!! You could win a $50 gift code to The Ton Shop!!!
