Please enjoy the gallery of cards that I created to showcase our new designs!
For my first card, I was channeling my inner Kay Miller! With so many stamps to showcase, I had to draw inspiration from this amazing community. For this card, I stamped the cluster branches on a watercolor panel in our Noir Dye Ink (which can be used to watercolored over). Then I dropped in different shades of reds, oranges, yellows and browns onto my branches using the wet on wet watercolor technique. Once I was satisfied with the amount of color, I set the panel aside to dry. Then I splattered brown watercolor paint all over my panel. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 base.
For my next card, I created a scene using our new Autumn Wishes. I started off by blending cards onto an white A2 cardstock panel using our Arctic Sky Dye Ink and a homemade cloud stencil. Since my ink was light, I stamped my branch clusters directly onto my clouds and colored the images in with a combination of yellow, orange and brown zig markers. After I stamped the sentiment, I stamped additional birds on a separate card panel, colored them in, cut them out and popped them up on my branches. Lastly, I adhered my colored panel onto a dusty blue side folding A2 base.
How adorable are these birds!!
My last Autumn Wishes card is more simple than my first two projects. I gold heat embossed my branch clusters onto the top and bottom edges of an A2 watercolor panel. Then I added watercolor paint and stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink. Next I trimmed the left and right edges and mounted the panel onto an A2 side folding kraft card base.
For my next card, I rose gold heat embossed the different images from our new Rose Bouquet set onto the edges of my A2 watercolor panel. Then I painted the images with color burst paint and stamped the sentiment with our Noir Dye Ink. Lastly, I mounted the panel onto a side folding base and embellished it with clear rhinestones.
For my next card, I did some selective masking with the bouquet images from our Rose Bouquet and Modern Labels (all stamped with our Noir Dye Ink). Next I watercolored the images, stamped the sentiment and added stitching to edges of my panel using our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large). Lastly, I mounted the panel onto an A2 base and added our Clear Dew Drops (7mm and 5mm).
For my next card, I white heat embossed my Wishful Rose and did some loose watercolor painting with my color bursts. Once I finished painting, I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Ink and added Clear Dew Drops.
For my last card, I rose gold heat embossed the large floral cluster from our Pretty Plumeria. I did some more loose watercoloring using a combination of Fuchsia, Gamboge, Terre Vert and Lemon Yellow color bursts. Next, I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink, trimmed the edges of my panel adhered it to a cardbase. Prior to mounting the panel, I added Burnished Rose Gold foil tape to my base. Lastly I added Clear Dew Drops to embellish my card.
