I created a few cards to share with you today 🙂 My first card uses Loose Poenies and the Geometric Lattice Coverplate Die. I embossed gray cardstock with the coverplate die and glued it over my black A2 (folded to 4.25″ x 5.5″) card base. Using my fabulous MISTI, I stamped the sentiment a few times using Noir Couture Color. The flowers and leaves were stamped with Aspen Cocoa Couture Color on watercolor paper and colored with Mission Gold Watercolors. I fussy cut them and arranged them over the embossed background. I finished it off with some glossy black sequins.
My second card features Fresh Cut Tulips. I stamped the layers using various Distress Inks on watercolor paper. I added some details with loose watercoloring of my own. The stems were stamped on the card background but the tulips were done separately and fussy cut. I placed them over the stems using foam tape. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in Noir.
And finally, my last card uses one of my favorite new sets, Happiest of Peonies, and Brushed Thanks! I used my MISTI to stamp the images on watercolor paper. I had to stamp a few time to get dark, crisp stamp. I colored with my Mission Gold watercolors and let it dry. Once it was dry, I die-cut with A2 rectangle stitched die to get the stitched look around the border. On white cardstock, I stamped “thanks” with my MISTI until I was happy with the coverage. I moved the cardstock slightly to the right and stamped with a gray ink to give off a shadow for depth. I fussy cut the sentiment and added foam tape. I arranged it over my stamped and colored background and stamped the ‘you’ underneath. 🙂
