Flora & Fauna: Tropical Vibes

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
Today I have a summery card to share with you using the Flora & Fauna Tropical Vibes Stamp Set.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by die cutting fishtail banner from watercolour paper using SSS Stitched Banners die set. I then heat embossed cacti & summer leaves from the Tropical Vibes set onto the fishtail banner using white embossing powder. I applied mixed green & blue on white heat embossed banner using Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel. Once the banner was dry, I decorated on the top part of the banner with natural twine.
I love that adorable bird!! I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured it with Distress markers, and then fussy cut it out.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Flora & Fauna: Strawberry Fields

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a colourful (and cheerful) card to share with you using so adorable Flora & Fauna Strawberry Fields stamp set.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping adorable images from the Strawberry Fields set onto watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured them. Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the panel down using scallop stitches die.
I heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock with white embossing powder, trimmed it down. I mounted the main panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Spellbinders May Large Die of the Month

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have a couple of floral cards to share with you using the Spellbinders May Large Die Kit.
This month’s kit features 3 swirly leaves and 4 flowers, they are so beautiful!!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I created a floral Mother’s day card. I die cut flower from watercolour paper several times, then adhered them onto watercolour paper panel using glue pen. I ink blended on the panel with Festive Berries, Tattered Rose, and Scattered Straw Distress inks. I then freely brushed the inked panel using a wet paint brush. Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape.
For the sentiment, I used the SSS CZ Design Love You Mama Stamp Set.

For my second card, I made a CAS card! I die cut from dark grey panel using one of swirly leaves in the kit, die cut from white card stock using the same leaf die, and then inlaid the white die cut in place. I added red flowers and white enamel dots.

Flora & Fauna: Live Life Wildflowers

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have another floral card to share with you using so gorgeous Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers stamp set. I love their stylish flowers so much!!

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Live Life Wildflowers set on watercolour paper panel using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink. I then coloured all stamped images with polychromos colored pencils – just wanted to have rough texture from those colored pencils. I roughly coloured the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink and water brush.
Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom right corner of the panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink.
I stamped butterflies on a separate watercolour paper in Onyx Black pigment ink, fussy cut them out, and then put onto the panel using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
