Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown Day 5.
Today I am sharing with you my cards created with the new Pretty Posies and Make Yourself at Home stamp set.
I just have to say that I am loving these freehand flowers & leaves! The new set has both solid and outlined images so we could play a variety of styles!!
For my first card, I created my own floral patterns with the Pretty Posies stamp set. First, I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I then stamped the flowers and leaves randomly onto the watercolour panel using different colours of hybrid ink:
Red flower: Red Hot (solid image), Paver Red (outlined image)
Yellow flower: Pineapple (solid image), Latte (outlined image)
Pink flower: Cotton Candy (solid image), Razzle Berry (outlined image)
Others: Sour Apple, Limeade, Lush Lagoon, Green-Eyed Monster, Blue Yonder, Gumdrop Green, Nightshift Blue
Next, I spritzed a bit of Perfect Pearls Mist all over the stamped panel. Once dry, I mounted the panel to the top-folded Kraft card base using dimensional foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the new Snuggle Bunnies stamp set.
Here’s another card with the Pretty Posies set. Inside the big balloon, I watercoloured the flowers and leaves using Distress inks: I inked images using Distress inks, spritzed the inked stamps with water using a mini mister, stamped them on the watercolour paper, then trimmed the panel with the balloon edge in the Blueprints 26 Die-namics. For these two adorable bunny and teddy, I stamped them from Snuggle Bunnies set on watercolour panel with black pigment ink, then coloured them with Distress markers.
For my last card today, I used the Make Yourself at Home stamp set. First, I stamped the Roses All Over Background onto the watercolour panel using VersaMark Embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, then coloured it with Tattered Rose and Antique Linen Distress inks. I stamped the images from Make Yourself at Home set on a separate watercolour paper in Black Licorice hybrid ink, coloured them with Peerless watercolours before die cutting with the matching dies. Lastly I mounted all elements as shown to A2 white card base using dimensional foam tape, then embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
