Alright, let’s get into some cards!
This first card features stamps from the new Poppy Garden stamp set and a sentiment from the Across the Pond set. I started by stamping a whole bunch of the florals onto some Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock with a Copic friendly black ink.
I then colored in all of the flowers and leaves with my Copic markers. Be sure to check out the video if you want to know all of the colors I used for this! The coloring did take some time because there was a lot of it, but I find the time flies by because it is so relaxing. Once the coloring was done I cut out all of the images.
I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto a 8.5x3.5 piece of white cardstock. I then arranged all of the florals onto that panel. I adhered most of them with liquid adhesive, but the two larger flowers I popped up with foam tape. I then popped the whole panel up onto a 9x4 fog gray card base.
For the finishing touches on this first card I used a white gel pen to add some details to the flowers. I then added a bunch of clear sequins tucked in all around the flowers.
For the second card I used the Wavy Outlines and the Fancy Thanks die sets. I first took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and blended different sections with Distress Oxide ink to die cut. I blended one section with the colors Bundled Sage and Pine Needles, one with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey, and the last section with Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves.
Next I took one of the dies from the Wavy Outlines die set and cut it out of the blended ares so that I would have different colored pieces. This die cuts out an outline of the floral, but it is the inner pieces that I wanted for the blended cuts. I made sure to keep all of these pieces so that I could piece them together later. I then took the same die and cut it out of a piece of white cardstock. For this cut it is the outline that I wanted to keep. Finally I used the die on a panel of light gray cardstock. I removed all of the cut pieces so that I had just the panel with the shape cut from the center.
Now to put all the pieces together! I love doing die cut in-lay cards, it is like a puzzle! So I took the gray panel and adhered it to a piece of white cardstock, making sure to add adhesive to the entire panel of white cardstock (even the area where the hole is in the gray piece.) Having adhesive on the whole panel makes it easy to piece together the flowers. First I placed the white outline cut and then I filled in the rest of the holes with the blended pieces.
I popped up the gray panel onto a white card base. I then used the Fancy Thanks die to cut out a bunch of sentiments in black cardstock and glued them all together to make a dimensional piece. I then cut one out of white cardstock and glued it on top. I added the sentiment onto the card and then finished it up with some clear sequins.
