Floral Birthday

There are so many ways to apply chalks to your cards. I like to use a dry watercolor brush to apply the chalk and then moisten it with a blender pen to enrich the color. Thoughts?

First, I stamped my sentiment in the center of the panel, using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Next, I applied the chalks (Pink, Yellow, Green) to the images.

Timeworn Delight

Sometimes I am able to create a card with scraps that are left-over from other projects. This card was created, using scraps on my table. No stamping was required on this one. Thoughts? 






Stamps:
   None

Paper:
   Parakeet Party A-2
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Delightful Floral DSP 2-1/4 x 1-5/8, 1-3/4 x 1-5/8
   Berry Burst 3-3/4 x 2-1/4, 3-3/4 x 1-3/4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   None

Technique:
   Dry Embossing

Accessories:
   Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder
   Butterfly Gems
   2022-2024 In-Color Pearls
   Adhesive

First, I dry embossed the Berry Burst pieces, using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I then adhered the Berry Burst pieces onto the Basic Black panel, leaving a Basic Black gap in the middle of the two pieces.

Next, I adhered this panel onto the Parakeet Party card front.

I then adhered the DSP pieces onto the card front, covering the Basic Black gap in between the Berry Burst pieces. 

Lastly, I added a couple of Butterfly Gems, a Pearl, and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

I chose to omit a sentiment or greeting, making this an all occasions card. Note: this layout is perfect for odd-sized pieces of DSP.

Perfect Birthday

I came across this Irresistibly Floral DSP in a pile of discontinued paper. I remembered what fun I had creating with it. So, here is a card I made. What do you think? 






Stamps:
   Friendly Gnomes

Paper:
   Perfect Plum A-2, 2-1/4" Sq.
   Irresistibly Floral DSP 5-1/4 x 4 
   Basic White 1-3/4" Sq., 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   Perfect Plum

Marker:
   Pale Plum

Technique:
   Die Cutting
   Watercolor
   Emboss Resist

Accessories:
   Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
   White Glitter Ribbon
   Regals Candy Dots
   Watercolor Painters
   Glue Dots
   Dimensionals
   Adhesive

First, I watercolored my Irresistibly Floral DSP, using Perfect Plum and a watercolor painter. I let it sit for a minute to dry. I then wiped it down with a paper towel to make sure the Emboss Resist florals would shine through.

I then colored the back of the White Glitter Ribbon with a Pale Plum marker.

Next, I added a glue dot in the center of the ribbon to hold it in place on the DSP. I wrapped the ribbon around to the back and adhered it with some glue dots.

I then added the DSP panel onto the Perfect Plum card front.

Next, I stamped and die cut the sentiment and the Perfect Plum frame, using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I adhered the Basic White sentiment to the Perfect Plum frame and attached them to the center of the card front, using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a few Candy Dots (Perfect Plum), and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Botanical Thoughts

I really like these large, bold leaves and plants. They not only stand out, but can be used to surround and complement an image or sentiment. What do you think? 



Botanical Thoughts


Stamps:
   Botanical Layers
   Garden Meadow

Paper:
   Tangerine Tango A-2
   Mossy Meadow 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Mossy Meadow
   Lost Lagoon
   Daffodil Delight
   Tangerine Tango

Technique:
   Blending Brushes/Sponging

Accessories:
   Blending Brushes/Sponges
   Brights Enamel Shapes
   Adhesive

First, I used my Blending Brushes to add the background colors to a Basic White panel. I used Lost Lagoon on the top, Daffodil Delight on the center, and Tangerine Tango on the bottom. You can easily use sponges if you do not have any Blending Brushes.

I then stamped the sentiment (Garden Meadow Stamp Set) in the center of the card and then randomly stamped leaves and plants (Botanical Layers) around the sentiment as shown above. I used Mossy Meadow for all of the stamping.

Next, I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow matte and then onto a Tangerine Tango card front.

Lastly, I added a couple of Brights Enamel Shapes to the panel and adhered the other Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Here is another card where the stamping of the sentiment (Softly Sophisticated Stamp Set) and images was done on a vellum panel (Lovely Layers Vellum), and then adhered to the card front, using Glue Dots.
