Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of purple cards I made using some new goodies from our 6th Anniversary Release focusing on the Ribbons General set. This grouped layering stamp set stamps six beautiful sentiments in two shades which can be cut with the coordinating die with only one pass through your die cutting machine!
The first card is also showing the Quilted A2 die from the 6th Anniversary Release.
To arrange my floral cluster I used the Grouped Fresh Peonies stamp set and Fancy Foliage set. I stamped the peony flowers in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and the leaves in Soft Garden and Deep Emerald. I also stamped some gray Leaves from Fancy Foliage set in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside.
To create the background I watercolored a Canson mixed media panel in purple and cut it using the Quilted A2 die die and Scalloped Nested A2 die. I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the floral arrangement on it. The Ribbons General set was stamped in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe and cut using the coordinating die. Some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots were my finishing touch for this card.
For the second card for today I used the beautiful Monarch Butterfly Coverplate die along with the Ribbons General sentiment.
To begin I watercolored a panel in purple and cerulean blue using Color Burst. I cut the Monarch Butterfly Coverplate from the panel. The background was also watercolored in gold and brown. I splattered dark brown watercolor on the background panel and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The Monarch Butterfly Coverplate panel was then added using foam tape and the sentiment on it.
I decorated the sentiment with two branches from Fancy Foliage set which were gold heat embossed and colored in the same colors I used for the butterfly! To finish off I scattered some Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!
Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 !
Have a happy day!
