Hope you’ve been enjoying our Summer 2017 New Release week so far! I am so in love with our new unique and beautiful products and can’t wait to experiment and create more with them!
For today’s projects, I created 2 cards and I’m featuring our new Anemone Garden Background cling stamp, the Summer Blooms 4×6 clear stamp set, and the Penned Sentiments 4×6 clear stamp set. I decided to go with color scheme of blue and purple for both cards and were colored with my newest addiction, the Color Burst Powders. I’ll go over more details as I share each cards.
Without further ado, here’s the first card! On this card, I’m featuring our new Anemone Garden Background Cling stamp and the sentiment from our new Large Peony 4 stamp set. I absolutely adore these beautiful anemone images!!
I stamped our new Anemone Garden Background Cling stamp on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark Embossing ink. I heat embossed with Silver Pearl embossing powder and colored the entire image with the Color Burst Powders blending the pigments using the water brushes.
I first wet the areas I want to put the pigments down. Then I gave a first coat of color with the Ultramarine Blue, darkened up with Prussian Blue here and there to create the depth, and added Violet mostly around the edges to create highlights. I waited for the panel to dry completely and I trimmed it down to 5.5″ square with the trimmer. I had to make a card base out of 2 sheets of white cardstock since it was bigger than the typical A2 size card front. I just couldn’t bring myself to cut the watercolored panel down to anything smaller than that! lol!
On a 5.75″ square white card base, I first adhered blue glitter tape from our sample pack around the edges. Then I adhered the watercolored panel. I used the largest die from our (Large) Double Stitched Square Die and popped up the outer portion using the foam tape to create more interest.
Sentiment was borrowed from our new Large Peony 4 stamp set. I stamped it on a black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a small banner and popped it up on the card with the foam tape. I added some Silver Thread under the sentiment banner to add more interest.
For the final project for this week, I used our gorgeous new Summer Blooms stamp set and the new Penned Sentiments stamp set. I had so many card ideas with the Summer Blooms set, but I simply ran out of time. Hope I could bring those ideas alive and share them with you soon! 🙂
Here’s the card!
I started the card by stamping the Summer Blooms image on the 2 corners of a watercolor cardstock in Versamark embossing ink. I heat embossed the images in silver and colored the entire image with the Color Burst powders.
The Colors I used are exactly the same as the first card: Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Violet, Sap Green, Lime Green, Lemon Yellow. However, instead of combining both blue and purple on the petals, I colored the peonies in purple and the anemones in blue. When the watercolored panel was completely dry, I trimmed it down to 4″x5.5″.
The sentiment is from our new Penned Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it on the vellum in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. Then I wrapped it around the watercolored panel and taped in down on the back.
On a A2 white card base, I adhered the Burnished Silver foil tape around the edges and adhered the panel with foam tape. I finished the card by adding some Silver Dew Drops, Glass Slippers Sequins, and Silver Holographic Sequins.
