Made a couple of cards using floral stamps – just not the usual way! 😛
My first card is using Neat & Tangled Gardenia Blooms. I got it last month, but hadn’t used it yet..
For the card, I first stamped the flowers to get a frame shape instead – my idea was to adhere the panel to the card base instead of making a second layer of it; instead the second layer would be simple card stock.
So, then colored the images using Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass and Pumice Stone. I then trimmed this and adhered to the card base. I then stamped the sentiment, from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler on the bigger panel and adhered it too. I added a single silver line on the top panel using Uniball Signo silver gel pen.
Here’s my second card – I used Stampendous Blossom Spray stamp, stamping the image multiple times in different colors.
The color palette is from this pin from my color inspiration board in Pinterest.
I stamped the flowers using Paper Trey Ink Sweet Blush, Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe, Paper Trey Ink Hibiscus Burst, going from the lightest to the darkest. I then added strips of blue and silver washi tape on top, and stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler in Memento Tuxedo Black. I also added a few transparent sequins to embellish. This was a card I made for the Sovushka Slavia challenge, but I didn’t feel it conserved the sketch – the flowers were hanging way too low :P. But even though I am not submitting it, I really did like it! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
