I have 2 bright and colorful floral cards to share with you today and here’s the 1st card I created using the Peony Bouquet Stamp & Coordinating Dies and Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies!

I started off by stamping the Peony Bouquet on 2 corners of a A2 sized smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I also stamped the same on a turquoise cardstock using the MISTI tool. I die cut the turquoise panel first with the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and then the bouquets using the Coordinating Dies. I colored the bouquets on white cardstock with Copic markers. Colors I used are: RV02, RV06, RV23, RV09, E50, BG49, BG15, BG13, BG10, V17, V15, V01, Y17, Y06, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YG01. After coloring, I added some white dots and lines using white gel pen. I adhered the Copic colored panel on a white A2 sized panel and the turquoise panel on top.

Next, I adhered Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive Glitter paper on a white fun foam and die cut the sentiment “hello” using the Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies. I adhered the die cut “hello” on the card using liquid adhesive and finished the card by adding Silver Dew Drops, Clear Rhinestones, and Glass Slippers Sequins.

Here’s the 2nd card I created the same way as the 1st one, but with our beautiful Tulip Bouquet stamp set and the Coordinating Dies!

To start off, I partially stamped the Tulip Bouquet on top and bottom of both smooth white cardstock and kraft cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. I die cut the kraft cardstock first with the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and then the bouquets using the Coordinating Dies. I colored the stamped images on the white cardstock in same color I used for the first card and added gel pen highlights. I adhered the Copic colored panel on a white A2 cardstock and the kraft on top.

Next, I stamped the banner and sentiment from Basic Banner stamp set in Noir Dye ink and die cut it out using the Coordinating Dies. I popped the sentiment banner in the middle of the card using the dimensional foam tape and finished the card by adding Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins.
