Hello dear crafty friends!
Welcome to the Studio Katia Design Team Blog Hop!
As some of you know *cough, cough* I’m completely crazy about flower stamps! It was a no-brainer, I had to start with the big one from the Thank You So Much set. It is a stunning flower, it really is. I tend to do a lot of pink flowers but wanted something bright and cheery for this card so I decided on yellow.
To begin with I cut out an A2 sized piece of water colour card stock using the dotted rectangle die from the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frame set. I love water colouring and after heatembossing the flower as well as some leaves from the Together We Bloom set, I used the Gansai Tambi 36 pack to colour it all in.
Naturally, I couldn’t leave it just like that and had to add some sequins. Because…. well, who needs a reason for sequins? The ones I went for are some of my favourites: Crystal Clear Fushion. I’m going to confess something here. I never used to be a fan of mixes and fushions, it wreaked havoc with my inner neat freak/slight case of OCD and as silly as it sounds, I didn’t want to deal with them. I know, I know.. bonkers. Anyway, I got over my little issue and now I LOVE them! This is one I make sure I’m always stocked up on. As per usual, I adhered them with glossy accents.
After that, it was a simple case of glueing the panel to a card base and ta-da! Done! Apart from letting the water colour layers dry in between, this is quite a quick and simple card. You don’t have to add as many details as I did if you are in a hurry, loose water colouring looks lovely too and that’s so fun to do. No two cards will look the same so why not stamp up a couple, or five, panels while you are at it? Change the sentiment for an elegant birthday card.
