Hello crafting friends,
Monica here again and I’m super excited for this new release. Ever since we got it a few days ago I’ve been wanting to share my ideas with you and now we can. Yay!!!!
For this week I wanted to feature the Spring Roses stamp set. I created three super easy cards using the same technique with a bit of a twist on each of them.
I started by selecting colour cardstocks and matching inks. I cut my cardstocks to a slightly bigger size than an A2 card and used a stamping platform to stamp the Spring Roses around the edges on watermark ink. For the yellow and purple card, I used white embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I inked the outer edges of each piece of cardstock, using two or three shades of the same cardstock colour (yellow and purple). With a clean cloth, softly wiped the excess ink of the roses to reveal the white embossing. I then splattered some white shimmer all over these panels, trimmed them to 4” X 5 ¼” and set them aside to dry.
On a piece of thick vellum I inked the roses once again and heat embossed them on white embossing powder and used the matching die to cut them out. I stamped sentiments from the Spring Roses and Mom sets and trimmed them.
I had created A2 card bases and added a layer of textured cardstock for the yellow and a shimmery one for the purple one. I foam mounted my panels using the brand new foam tape from Studio Katia and adhered them to the card bases. Then, I added the vellum roses and placed the sentiment in the centre. This helps to adhere the vellum but hides the adhesive. I finished them by adding a few Marshmallow and Magic Pearls.
The green card was made with the same technique but in reverse. I inked the panel first, then I stamped the roses and used glitter embossing powder instead of white. I used some Iridescent Magnolia sequins for that extra texture and sparkle. You can watch the entire process for this card in this video:
I hope you like these simple yet cute cards that you can make with a few supplies and if you’re short in time.
Thanks so much for stopping by, see you next time!!!
