Another Field Flowers Card

100_9749eGood Morning! Here is another Field Flowers card that I pulled out of my stash for this set.   I actually made this card a couple of years ago, but wanted to show you another Field Flowers card.  This really is a beautiful set and can be used for a variety of things – weddings, thinking of you, sympathy, mother’s day, birthday, etc. The details on this cards: 1.  The card base is marina mist cut in half at 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make the card base. 2.  The background is night of navy cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed with a victorian embossing folder which is no longer available.  If I were making this card today, I would use the beautifully baroque embossing folder. 3.  I added a little dimension to the background of this card by stamping with the En Francais background stamp with marina mist ink stamped off.  I then used the now retired set – Fresh Vintage (a SAB set from two years ago) and very lightly stamped a couple of flower images, stamping off on scrap paper first.  I then very lightly sponged the edges of the white cardstock. 4.  The flower stems are stamped with Always Artichoke ink.  The flowers are stamped with night of navy.  I stamped the background image first on a scrap paper to “stamp Off” and create a lighter image for the background of the stamp.  I then used the detail stamp with night of navy ink over the background image. 5.  This piece is layered onto marina mist card stock.  I scalloped the bottom edge of the card stock using the scallop trim border punch. 6.  Next I stamped the sentiment “with Love” with night of navy ink and punched it out with the oval punch.  This is layered onto a piece of night of navy card stock punched with the oval scallop punch. 7.  Last but not least are the Embellishments.  I used a layer of Victoria Crochet Trim and the pearl jewels to accent the center of the large flower and the scallop on the bottom of the floral layer. I hope you have enjoyed this card sample! signature line-003  

Whitewashed Watercolor Technique

  100_9717e

Don’t you just love the look of the whitewashed watercolor?  I think this is my new favorite technique.   The look of watercolored flowers with the contrast of a non-white card stock  is just stunning.   I will be teaching this technique at my August Technique Class on Thursday August 29th at 7pm.

In this class, you will learn how to do this technique and receive an instruction card with complete instructions to do this technique in the future.  You will be provided with all the supplies to make 3 cards with envelopes.

You just need to bring a “class kit” which includes your adhesive of choice and some scissors.

The cost of the class is $17.  You can pre-register here for the class.

Here are a couple of other cards that we will be making in the class.

Swaps and more swaps!!

This week has been very busy making swaps and working on a wedding as well!  I am getting down to the wire with 100_9464 everything for convention!!  I am so excited!  5 Members of my Stampin’ Up! team are going with me to Salt Lake City next week for Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Anniversary Celebration!!   It will be so much fun!! This is a  card that I designed with the Mosaic Madness stamp set and Quatrafancy designer paper.  I actually made this card in two color combinations since my supply of cardstock is more limited on the Cape.  The first sample is using the new Strawberry Slush paper and ink with pink pirouette on top and the mosaic embossing folder.  Remember that the mosaic punch and stamp set come as a bundled pair! 100_9462 The second card is the same layout but using the Crisp Canteloupe color scheme with Calypso Coral as the backing.   I added a little bling to the cards with rhinestone jewels on the mosaics. For the cutout, I used the labels collection framelits.  The trick to this card is to cut out the top layer with a larger framelits and then emboss the top layer with the mosaic embossing folder.  I then cut a smaller piece of white card stock using the smaller label framelit. I used the new Washi tape along the bottom of the card where I layered the mosaic that I stamped and punched.  The strawberry slush card uses the washi tape from the Gingham garden washi tape.  The calypso/canteloupe card uses the Epic Day washi tape. Last but not least, I used the happy birthday stamp from the new hostess set Express Yourself.  I love all the greetings that this set offers. Enjoy! signature line-red
