Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards to share with you.
I love The Ton’s large flower stamps like Large Peony , Large Dahlia or Large Florals series. And there are many big flower images from other stamp sets like the peonies you can find from Peony Duo set. They are all beautiful and the open flower images are just perfect to color using any medium!
For today’s cards I chose Large Florals: Heritage Rose and the big peony from Peony Duo as my focal image and added them on a textured background created using Geo Mountain Coverplate die cuts as stencils.
This is the first card featuring Large Florals: Heritage Rose .
I started by stamping and cutting the big rose, leaves and small flower branches. The flowers are stamped in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria hybrid ink and the leaves in Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz and Light Onyx. They were all cut using coordinating dies.
To create the background I cut a heavy weight cardstock using Geo Mountain Coverplate Die A to use it as a stencil. I placed the DIY stencil on a piece of shimmer cardstock and applied clear glitter embossing paste on it. I did it only partially. After the panel was dry I cut it with a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a light gray cardbase. I then arranged the floral elements onto the card as shown in the picture. Some are glued flat and some mounted with foam adhesives.
The sentiment was cut using Hello word die three times from some white cardstock. On one of the cardstock pieces I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive glitter paper. I love how well the glitter paper and glitter paste go together! The die cut hellos were stacked together and added onto the rose.
The second card is showing the big peony image from Peony Duo on black.
I silver heat embossed the big peony and the leaves on some watercolor cardstock and colored them using Color Burst. The peony was colored in Cerulean Blue, Indigo and Orchid and the leaves in Turquoise, Chartreuse and Lime Green. I then cut them all with coordinating dies.
To create the background I used black cardstock, which was cut using a Double Stitched Rectangle die, and black embossing paste. As the stencil I used die cut piece cut with Geo Mountain Coverplate Die B this time. I scattered glitter on the paste while it was still wet and let the panel dry. The dried panel was mounted on a black cardbase. I then placed the peony flower and leaves on it.
Here they are together 🙂 !
That’s it from my side! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards today!
Thank you so much for looking! Wishing you all a wonderful and crafty week!
