Hello, everyone! Anna here sharing a card I made using an image from Poppy Close Up.
I started by coloring the beautiful poppy using my Holbein watercolors. Then, I fussy cut the flower. To make the background, I cut out a white cardstock panel with Convention Coverplate Die. Next, I adhered it on a sand cardstock panel that was cut out with the largest die from Rectangle A2 Nested Dies.
I colored the poppies on the outer piece of the panel in red (Permanent Carmine by Schmincke) and the leaves, stems and buds in olive green.
I did negative watercoloring on the center piece. For a dramatic contrast I colored the background of it in dark purple (Imperial Purple and Moon Glow by Daniel Smith) and left the flowers uncolored.
The sentiment is also from the Coming Up Poppies set. I stamped it on the outer piece of the panel in Noir and adhered it on a white slimline cardbase. The central piece was then added using foam tape.
Hi everyone. How’s it going? Vera here. Today, am showcasing Blooming Shelves set. I love this set. Maybe because I feel like it has a modern feel to it & partly because the plants on this set are the kind of plants that I’ve been trying to grow in my backyard. Not very successful I might add. Hah!
Anyhoo…. to start, I stamped the image and sentiment with Caviar ink pad and then colored it with Copic marker. Die cut the image with Blooming Shelves Coordinating dies. Then, I die cut a blank piece of white cardstock a couple more times with the same die to layer it with the colored one. I want to have thickness without using foam adhesive. Before adhering the colored piece to the card base, I stamped some leaves from Urban Jungle set directly on the card base with Matcha ink pad.
I feel like this add a little bit of interest to the background without making it too busy or compete with the main image. Adhere the colored image to the card base.
Finished by adding some Bright Green Opaque Rhinestones. I love the way this card turn out and I hope you do, too. That’s all from me today. May the rest of your week goes smoothly. Cheers.
Hi everyone. Vera here with poppies card. I’ll always remember the time I saw poppies for the first time in my life and I was completely mesmerize by it’s beauty. Since then, it has become one of my favorite flowers.
The Ton has several beautiful poppies set, but for today, am playing with Precious Poppies Layering Stencil set. Adding color with just ink blending makes stencil one of my favorite way to make cards nowadays. For the poppies I used Dolled Up, Coralline, Coral Cavern, Matcha and Aspen Cocoa. At first, I ink blending Coralline on the poppies base, followed by Coralline & Coral Cavern, but then am not quite satisfied with the colors, so I went back to the first layer and blend in Dolled Up on top. It’s okay to change your mind and added more color even after you finish the layering. As long as you use color that you know won’t end up looking muddy, of course.
Then die cut the poppies with the coordinating Precious Poppies dies. To make it more stand out, I die cut a plain cardstock twice and layered it up with the colored poppies. For the background, I used my all time favorite background dies, Quilted A2 Coverplate Die. Adhere the panel to card base followed by the poppies. Then for sentiment I used one of the sentiment from Heartfelt Blossoms and finish by adding a couple birdies from Nesting Peonies set.
I love it when I get to combine several sets in one card. It always make me feel accomplished. LOL. Instant gratification. Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s card and I wish you all a wonderful day. Cheers.
I have a thank you card to share with you today featuring the Fairest Peony Cluster Layering Stencil Set!! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m trying out some different pink ink combos and it turns out that I love all of them!!
For the background, I blended the same pink inks onto an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, starting with the darkest color at the bottom and ending with the lightest at the top. I die-cut the Grid A2 Coverplate Die from white cardstock and adhered it over the blended panel. The cluster of peonies was adhered and the excess was cut from the edges.
For extra interest, I decided to use one of the leftover frame from previous projects that I had cut using Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders die set. Then, arrange all the elements on the card. I used foam adhesive on the top part of the Poinsettia and straight up glue on the bottom part to give a little dimension. I do have tendency to create using non traditional color and I sure love the way this card turned out.
The color gradient on the Poinsettia made it pop against the soft color background. What do you think? Anyway, that’s all from me. I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Cheers…..
