Today I'm going to show you how I played with the largest stamp from the Floral stamp set and created 3 cards with all the same materials, but still ended up with a different look on each card.
I was able to create a different look, by placing the stamp differently on each card.
I used the above piece of patterned paper from the Floral collection for the card base, and coloured the roses with Copic markers. Copics used were: Flowers: E00, E01, E02, E95, E99 Leaves: G20, G82
To colour the roses I used a very simple colouring style. On each petal I started with my darkest colours on the inside edge and blended out to the lightest.
Each card was backed with Tonic Studios Mirror Glossy cardstock in Imperial Blue because I liked the way it brought out the blue in the Floral patterned paper. The bows for each were made as showed above. The twine was a very fine twine. I wrapped it around three fingers to create the loops and then tied them in the middle and glued them down on top of the card and fluffed out the bow.
For card number 1 above, I cut the word strip from one of the patterned papers in the Floral collection and then cut it up to fit my card. The sequins used on all of the cards are from the Crazy Motivated pack which is sold out in the Wild Whisper online store, but you can still find them here, in the ScrapShotz store.
I created the inside of all three cards in the same manner, decorating a plain piece of white paper with one of the pretty florals in the ephemera package.
Card number 2 is all about that pretty, pretty, Floral stamp. Stamping it right in the center makes it the focus of the card.
Card number 3 uses another word strip from the Floral patterned papers. I love all the quotes Suzy and Heather chose, and this one is definitely ME! With this set of quotes, I inked the edges of each piece with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink.
By creating a series of cards using the same materials, you are able to craft more efficiently because you're not searching for a bunch of different items. They're all there on the table in front of you!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to get busy and enjoy some cardmaking fun!!
