Climbing Cosmos Stencils

Hello and Happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a slimline card featuring Climbing Cosmos Layering Stencil set from the latest release. This layering stencil set coordinates with the Coming Up Cosmos stamp and die sets. I combined the flowers with the Slimline Fractured die cut background. 

I started by stamping the Coming Up Cosmos image two times on Neenah Solar White cardstock in Noir. I colored the images using the Climbing Cosmos layering stencil set. I wanted to have cosmos flowers in violet and light blue. The first layer of the flowers were stenciled in Cali Blue and Soft Amethyst, the second layer in Azurite and Iris Blooms and the third layer in Violet Fringe. The center of the flowers were colored in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Amber Citrine. For the stem and leaves I used Everglade Moss. After stenciling was done I cut the images with the coordinating die and set them aside. 

To create the background I first watercolored a slimline sized Mixed Media paper panel in Cerulean Blue and Orchid Color Burst powder. I then cut the panel using the Slimline Fractured Coverplate die. I cut three more Slimline Fractured coverplate pieces from some white cardstock and layered them. I adhered the watercolored Slimline Fractured coverplate die cut piece on the white ones and added it to a white slimline cardbase. I then inlayed the inner pieces from the watercolored panel. Next I splattered black ink on the background panel and let it dry. 

The stenciled Coming Up Cosmos images were added to the background and the excessive parts were cut off. 

The sentiment from Ribbons General set was stamped in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe and cut with the coordinating die. For some dimension I adhered the sentiment with two layers of foam adhesive.

I finished off the card with a few Light Purple opaque Rhinestones.

That’s it from me ! Hope you’ve got some inspiration from my card! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a lovely weekend!

Cosmos Flowers

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.

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!
