Together We Bloom Clear Stamp Set
You’re So Ranunculus Clear Stamp Set
I watercolored everything with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I haven’t used them in quite some time and now I’m wondering why! They are so amazing!
Happy Thursday everyone, Kristina here with another floral card for today featuring the Stitched Creative Window and Duo Talk Clear Stamp set.
First I diecut the frame out with the Creative Window Creative Die several times from white paper and once from a silver glitter paper. Then I die cut the background panel with a largest Creative Rectangle die.
On my panel I’ve traced all the windows with a pencil to mark spots for my flowers. In the windows I’ve stamped the flowers from the set of Painted Flowers from Altenew were stained with black water-resistant ink. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen instead of water. These pens are perfect for that.
It’s hard to see the shine in the photo, but the flowers are very glittery. In the center I’ve stamped the Thanks sentiment. After that, I’ve glued all the white frames and glued the last layer glitter and pasted on the panel with the florals. After that, I cut down a rectangular panel of white Woodgrain paper from SSS using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die by SSS. To finish the card I’ve adhered it all together on a white cardbase panel.
Thank You all for stopping by and have a great day!
Next, I die cut each of the flowers along with 4 pieces of ivory cardstock with the co-ordinating die. On the ivory piece, I scored about 1/2 inch from the top and applied some Scor-Tape. This will create the back of the tag.
Today I have another card featuring the amazing peonies and new Dotted Patterns Set of dies.

Happy Clear Stamp Set
Dotted Patterns Set – 1 Creative Dies
Clear Round Drops – Mix
Tending to make CAS card I actually manage to make quite white but not CAS card :). The white card base is accompanied by a soft plaid rectangle and a big delicate white tag. Flowers – the center of this card are Studio Katia peonies again, in turquoise with green leaves.
I colored and fuzzy cut flowers and arranged them on one side of the tag and adhered with 3D tape and multi-medium. I added the round clear drops for delicacy.There is a gift card pocket inside. The Dotted Patterns Set of dies comes with a small curvy element with which the pocket is made. As a pocket is white, I decided to stamp the card base with different sentiments.Thank you for stopping by!
Hello lovely! Erica here with a bright, cheery card celebrating the arrival of summer.
As a flower lover and florist, I ADORE flower stamps of all kinds and the You’re So Ranunculus is just dreamy. It has a matching creative cut but if you know you want both the stamp and the coordinating die, you might as well grab the bundle. Just saying 🙂
For this card I wanted to try something different and not my usual A2 sized ones. I cut a piece of water colour card stock, Strathmore Bristol Vellum as always, in an 8″x4″ shape. The idea was to stamp the flowers along the bottom, much like a flower bed and then colour them with my Gansai Tambi 36 pack. I decided to heat emboss the flowers so I started out by sprinkling the card stock with my anti-static tool and then placed the stamp in my MISTI (because I’m utterly incapable of stamping anything without it since I got it a couple of years ago) The stamping and heat embossing I did in batches to make sure nothing overlapped as I didn’t bother with a mask for this card. Next time I think I will though, that means I can get all the stamping done and dusted in one go.
Once all the heat embossing was done I got the water colours out and got to work. I used mostly yellow for the flowers as I intend to send this card to a friend of mine and she loves yellow. I also blended in a little bit of orange to create a peach colour for some of the blooms and then finished off with a few pinkish ones. All the stems and leaves were coloured in with greens and then I added a fainter shade of the same green around the stems to fill in the gaps a little. I still thought it needed a little something else after that so I shaded the stems with a little more green and then added some little drops all around the flowers. This is one of my favourite ways of adding some interest to a panel without adding embellishments.
To finish off the card I used the word dies that comes with the coordinating die, ‘hello’ and ‘lovely’, which are lovely and flowy.
I cut them out in gold glitter card stock and added to the top of the panel at an angle. For the card base I used a Lawn Fawn card stock called Sunflower, it’s bright yellow and I thought it perfect to frame the card as I cut it just 1/4″ bigger than the panel itself. I adhered the panel to the card base using my beloved foam tape to raise it up a little bit, which is another favourite crafting trick of mine.
Here is the full card and that’s it from me for today.
Happy crafting and shopping from Erica
Hello and welcome to our May Release week Preview. This release includes 5 new clear stamp sets, 2 new stand along die sets and introducing new coordinating die sets. Yay!
Kristina here and today is our last day for previews. Who’s excited for tomorrow?
I love this set especially because it’s so gentle and very beautiful. With this set you can create many interesting and elegant projects.
First, I stamped the ranunculus with transparent ink on watercolor paper and embossed it with a white powder. I used no.34. no 50 and no.51 Gansai Tambi watercolor paints to lightly color in the flowers. I’ve trimmed the panel to make it narrow and used foam tape to adhere it to the light grey cardbase.
I die-cut the word “hello” from the coordinating set in white cardstock a few times to create more dimension and to make it stand out on a light gray background.
Thank you all for stopping by and I hope to see you all tomorrow!

Today I have another card featuring amazing peonies ? Just love those flowers, cannot get enough them.
This time I went with square shape and white embossed background. The embossing made with Spellbinders Laser Beam embossing folder on Neenah white piece od cardstock die-cut with SSS square stitched die.
Lastly, Clear Round drops to finish the card.
Thank you for visiting!
To start my card off I created an distress ink smooshing background using Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and Moved Lawn onto a Tim Holtz watercolor panel. I pressed each ink pad onto a sandwich bag, sprayed them with water and placed the panel on them. Then I turned the paper with the bag over and with my fingers smudged inks as I wanted it all over the panel.
Then I stamped floral cluster using COPIC friendly Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I used masking paper to create masks for my flower to stamp them not overlapped. I tried to stamp flower over yellow and pink inks smooshing, and leaves over green. On the other hand I didn’t try to be very precise, which was almost impossible even if I’d try. I got parts of flowers stamped over green ink, and leaves over pink and yellow. As you can see in the end result – it didn’t really matter.
The flowers and leaved then were colored using COPIC markers. The flowers stamped over yellow ink I colored with yellow markers, used red markers to color over pink ink and leaves were colored with green.
After I finished my coloring I trimmed the panel to 3.75 x 5″. For the sentiment I choose very beautiful Thank You from Thank You So Much Stamp Set which I also stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. This was an epic fail decision as my sentiment blended in with stamped florals. This happens with me all the time – after so much work put into a card I can ruin it with the last action. Of course I didn’t want to discard this card and all that work I invested in it. So I added shadow to the sentiment using white gel pen and this seemed to improve the situation. With the same pen I also added several dots around the florals. Along with color droplets, which I made with the same inks and small brush (just diluted some ink with water, picked up with brush and sprinkled all over the panel).
Also I covered the floral images with Clear Wink Of Stella. Of course it’s not visible on photos, but it is in real life.
I added several clear droplets of different sizes. Sometimes people as me what adhesive I use for these transparent droplets. I always use Ranger Multi Medium Adhesive in Matte finish. It dries clear and is not visible through clear droplets. Plus – this is very strong adhesive. I always use it for small non paper embellies like sequins, dots etc.
Lastly I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base I made out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. To mount my panel I used a piece of white fun foam, cut a bit smaller then the panel, which I adhered with very strong Tombow Xtreme adhesive (it works great for stubborn surfaces, like foam or watercolor paper).
Have a wonderful day!
Erica here with my blog post to go with the card I made as part of the 1st Birthday Celebration blog hop for Studio Katia! (You might have seen my card already if you took part in the hop on May 4th but here is the whole shebang in words too.)
As soon as I heard that the prompt for this blog hop was shaker cards I decided to do a see-through vase and fill it with blue and transparent sequins and shaker beads. Adding lots of flowers for the vase was just a bonus. I have done a card in the past when the vase was propped up on the front of the card but for this one I decided to do a flat front and cut the shaker compartment into the back, if that makes sense? I’m reading this back and it just seems like a mad riddle to be honest.. Hopefully the photos will explain better than my words do!
I started out by cutting out a tall and thin card base, 7″ x 4″, in a fabulous linen textured white card stock. In this panel I cut out the smallest of the Stitched Creative Nested Rectangles towards the bottom, leaving enough room to add enough adheisive to make sure no sequins escape the shaker compartment. Using this as a guide I cut out 4 panels in the same size and die cut the ‘vase’ on each one. These I layered up using LOTS of double sided tape and for the top layer I added a piece of acetate to the front panel. This whole lot I set aside for a minute as I wanted to stamp some flower stems on the negative cut (in the white linen textured card stock) before adding this to the back of the shaker compartment. Using the skinniest Brush Strokes stamp I stamped several stems using a green ink. Then to add a little bit extra I stamped some skinnier stems, from a stamp set from The Ton, using a darker ink.
Turning my card panel upside down, I filled the shaker compartment with Clear Iridescent Seed Beads, Icy Breeze Sequins in 4mm size and also some metallic blue 4mm sequins which sadly aren’t available any more so you could use Enchanted Sea Sequins or Light Blue Metallic Star Sequins for a jazzy look. The ‘inside of the vase’-bit I gently added as a lid and then I adhered the final piece of card stock to keep it all together.
Moving on to my flowers I reached for the big bloom in the Thank You So Much set and I stamped up two on Strathmore Bristol Vellum water colour paper and heatembossed them in white embossing powder. Using my Zig markers, I coloured them in rich reds with hints of pink. As usual the florist in me thought ‘this bunch needs greenery and some smaller flowers too’ so I stamped up another flower from the Together We Bloom as well as the biggest leaves. This I stamped two together to make a slightly bigger bunch of leaves. All this also got coloured in using Zig markers. Everything then got fussy cut.
Arranging these into a nice, big bunch I adhered them to the card using foam tape to add some extra dimension. As this is for a birthday it needed a sentiment and to keep things simple, as the rest of the card has a lot going on, I just stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Birthday Lions in black on a piece of white card stock and cut it down quite small. This I also adhered with foam tape on the top flower and with that, the card was done!
