Hi, crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of Cosmos cards featuring Charming Cosmos and Coming Up Cosmos sets from our August release! Cosmos flower is one of my favorite flowers!
The first card is showing the Coming Up Cosmos which has a gorgeous cosmos cluster image ! A dream to color!
I watercolored the light gray outline image. I colored the flowers in pink and orange! I love that cosmos blooms in various colors! After the coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.
I ink blended the lower half of a white cardbase in Lemon Drop and Evergreen and splattered white opaque ink on it . I also splattered the Coming Up Cosmos image with the white ink.
I made a scalloped frame using a Scalloped Nested A2 die and a Rectangle A2 Nested die and foam mounted it on the cardbase. I then added the Coming Up Cosmos image on it. The sentiment from Easy Expressions set was gold heat embossed and stamped in Noir. To finish off I added a few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.
The second card is showcasing the Charming Cosmos grouped layering stamp set.
I stamped the flowers in light pink, pink and light purple. The ink colors I used are listed below.
- Light pink cosmos : Whisper Pink, Bubblegum, Dolled Up
- Pink cosmos : Bubblegum, Dolled Up, Deep Peony
- Light purple cosmos : Soft Orchid, Orchid Crush, Plum Wine
- Leaves : Meadow, Basil Mojito
- Center of the flowers : Amber Citrine, I added details using colored pencils
I cut the image using the coordinating die, arranged the floral cluster and secured it with a piece of Press’n Seal.
To create the background I first cut three layers of the Gingham Plaid Layering coverplate die set from some white cardstock and ink blended the lower half of them in Bubblegum and Dolled Up. I also ink blended a white cardbase and layered the Gingham Plaid on it.
I added the cosmos cluster to the card using foam tape and added the sentiment from the Easy Expressions set. I finished off the card with a few sequins from Pink Cosmo Twist and Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mixes.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards 🙂 !
Wishing you all a great week!
