Yellow Roses

Hello All! It’s LauraJane today with a watercolor card using Fresh Cut Garden Roses. I’ve been in a vintage feeling mood lately, and I found the roses in this set to fit that need.img_2332

…all three of those inks are found in the Citrine Collection

  • I then took the Ziggys and added shadows and more of a watercolored feel to each bloom
  • Created a mask for the cluster and stamped the greenery from Fresh Cut Garden Roses and one image from Wild Peonies. inking with Soft Garden  on the solid images and Everglade Moss Dye on the detailed second layer.
  • I decided to nestle in a few tiny buds from Fresh Cut Garden Roses in the same inks as above.
  • For the background wash; I smooshed some color from the ziggys on an acrylic block and dabbed around the leaves with the waterbrush.
  • Hit it with some DARK brown splatter
  • Inked the sentiment from Scripty Greetings in Dark Roast Dye
  • Finished by running it through the BigShot using the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies

Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here! I am so excited to be a guest for The TON today! I want to share with you my watercoloured flower card with the new Graceful Rose stamp set.
YoonsunHur-20160704-TheTON-001

For my card today, I used no-line watercolouring technique. First I stamped the large sized rose from the Graceful Rose set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in Antique Linen Distress ink. I then coloured it with Distress inks using a paint brush:

Petals: Festive Berries & Wild Honey
Leaves: Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron
Sprig: Gathered Twigs & Vintage Photo
I added some red ink splatters, then stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the watercoloured panel using VersaFine Onyx Black. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on an A2 sized white card base using double-sided tape.

Video: Glittered Dresses and One Layer Roses

glitter dress

Hello, everyone!  I’m back today with a two cards and two videos!  For my first set of cards, I used our Haute Wedding Dress stamp set and a ton of glitter.  I am totally casing Ruby’s Anniversary Blog Hop cards where she made some pretty spectacular cards with this set using glitter.  I wanted to case her cards using our Adhesive Glitter Paper and some fine glitter dust.

I started off by stamping my 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 panel with the Haute Wedding Dress in Caviar Hybrid ink.  Then I stamped the dress onto some copy paper and then fussy cut the dress.  Next I used my cut-out dress as my guide when to cut out the dress shape using my silver glitter adhesive paper.  Next, I colored in my girl with some E00 and E79. After I finished my coloring, I adhered the silver dress over my stamped image on my panel.

Next, I die cut our Fabulous Word die on some heavy weight 110 pound black cardstock.  Next I adhered the die cut over our dress and stamped the simple Hello sentiment right over the die cut with our Noir Dye ink.  Next I trimmed our stamped panel about half of a 1/4 of an inch.  Then I trimmed a black strip of cardstock and adhered this onto our top folding 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 cardbase.  I adhered a thin strip of silver glitter tape partially over the black strip on our cardbase. Lastly, I adhered the stamped panel onto the cardbase to finish off the card!

I created the same card using each of the colors that our Glitter Paper comes in – Blue, Purple, Red, Gold and Silver.  Our Glitter Paper also comes in a convenient Mixed pack if you want to sample the different colors.

I show you how I made this glitter dress card in the same video. Again, this fabulous card was inspired by the talented Ruby!  I used the same cut out dress guide that I made for the above cards to cut out the dress shape of a double sided Scor Tape sheet.  I had a colored stamped panel of the dress and adhered the adhesive onto the stamped image.  After I spooned on some of the fine glitter, I placed the panel in between a folded piece of copy paper.  Then I burnished the glitter into the adhesive really well with my bone folder. Then I proceeded to make the same card as the above cards!

For my second card and video for the day, I used our Fresh Cut Roses layering stamp set.  Instead of layering the stamps together, I used individual layers to create a simple and quick card.

I started off with a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 A2 card panel.  I stamped our panel with the rose stamp with our Grand Fuchsia Dye ink (any of the first layers of roses from this set will do for these cards).  Next I created a mask for the rose using some copy paper and adhesive.  I adhered the mask onto our stamped panel and proceeded to stamp the individual leaf stamps over the mask using our Hot Tourmaline Dye ink.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the same set with our Noir Dye ink.

Next, I used put down some pink glitter tape on the sides of my A2 side folding cardbase.  Lastly, I trimmed my stamped panel about a 1/4 inch on each side and adhered the panel onto the cardbase.

I mass produced the same design and used all the different rolls of glitter and foil tapes from our Sampler Packs.  These card were super simple and fun to make.  The first layer (most solid) stamps in our Fresh Cut Roses set have some negative space in them so it already has a built in, extra layer!  So although it is a layering set, our Fresh Cut Roses do not have to be layered to get a gorgeous floral layout.

That’s all for today!  Thanks for stopping by and watching my videos!  We have a special post for you coming on Saturday so make sure you stop by this weekend!
