Hello and happy Thursday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today!
I’ve made two floral cards to share with you using Fresh Cut Sunflowers coordinating Outlines stamp set. But I turned the sunflowers into pink and purple daisies! I so wanted to color the sunflower images in other colors than yellow. I decided to pretend they are daisies, so I could color them in rainbow colors 🙂 !
First I colored the flowers from Fresh Cut Sunflowers coordinating Outlines stamp set with Copic markers and added details using Polychromos colored pencils. Btw we have Polychromos pencils in Boutique section in The Ton shop, if you need some! I stamped the flowers in Ballet Slippers and the leaves in Soft Garden. For the first card I drew the long stem. I then die cut the flowers using Coordinating dies and fussy cut the greenery.
Set the colored images aside, I prepared two different backgrounds.
To make the background for my first card, I started off by white heat embossing the rectangle frame from Modern labels stamp set several times on a watercolor card stock. I then colored the panel in yellow and blue using smooshing technique and splattered some purple ink. After the panel was dry, I foam mounted the background panel on the card base, attached the stem on that, and adhered the flowers using some foam adhesives.
The butterfly is from Beautiful Butterflies 3. I white heat embossed it on some watercolor paper, colored it with Zig brush markers and die cut with Coordinating die. I borrowed the sentiment from Dearest Peony stamp set, which I white heat embossed on a strip of purple card stock. The butterfly and the sentiment strip were foam mounted. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Kiwi Smoothie and Summer Skies Couture Mix.
For my second card I used the Chandelier as an embellishment to place my flowers on it. I stamped the Chandelier in embossing ink, heat embossed it in Rose Gold and cut it with Coordinating die. I die cut one more chandelier from a purple fun foam and glued it underneath the rose gold chandelier. I adhered a A2 sized panel of a silver card stock on my card base and placed the chandelier on the center of the panel.
I then arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture. I foam mounted the big flower for some more dimension. The sentiment was cut from a black card stock on which I adhered Adhesive transparent Glitter paper. I foam mounted the hello die cut using tiny foam adhesives. I finished off the card by adding tiny clear sequins from Amethyst Quartz Couture Mix on the chandelier.
