The Loose Tulips and Sweet Folk Hummingbird set are beautiful floral outline sets. Coloring the big flowers is a delight! The City Buildings Cling background stamp is a fun addition to our unique background stamp collection. The Smooched and XOXO mini sets were pre-released last week to give you more time to create your Valentine's day projects. Kind, Fierce and Brave mini set is a great sentiment set for an encouragement card.

Today I have four cards to share with you. 

The first card is an almost one layer creation using Loose Tulips.

I started off by making masks for the flowers and leaves. I stamped the tulips in Rose Quartz and the leaves in Blue Diamond to create the tulip field along with masking when needed. I then colored the image using Copic markers. I used RV11, RV13, RV14 for the pink tulips, R20, R21, R22 and R24 for the coral tulips and BG11, BG32, BG13, BG15 and BG49 for the leaves. After done with coloring I blended Caribbean Turquoise ink on the bottom part of the panel and added white dots using a white gel pen. The sentiment from Loose Tulips was gold heat embossed on the panel. I trimmed down the panel slightly and foam mounted it onto a light gray cardbase. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Mint Sugar and Misty Mint

On my next card I colored the tulip from Sweet Folk Hummingbird set using alcohol inks. 

The tulip image from Sweet Folk Hummingbird was silver heat embossed on a alcohol ink cardstock. I then dripped the alcohol ink on it and tilted the paper carefully to move and blend the colors. I used Flamingo and Shell Pink for the pink tulip, Valencia, Sunset Orange and Sunshine yellow for the orange one and Citrus and Botanical for the leaves. The background was created with Aqua and Citrus diluted using rubbing alcohol. The sentiment from the same set was white heat embossed on a dark gray cardstock. I added a strip of white cardstock on which I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive paper, underneath the sentiment strip to add some sparkle. My finishing touch was some sequins from Pink Bokeh and Cosmic Mauve Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins mix. 

My next two cards could be Valentine's Day cards :).

To create this card I made the background panel first. I loosely colored an A2 sized watercolor panel in cobalt turquoise and white heat embossed Delicate Polka Dots on it. I then cut the letters for "hugs" using Bold General Greeting and Bold Amazing Greeting Word Plate Dies from some watercolor paper and watercolored the letters in yellow. I borrowed "and" from Holiday Word Dies. I cut it from a transparent glitter paper made using our Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive paper and two more times from thick white cardstock to stack them together. The lips from Smooched set were stamped in Red Sangria Hybrid ink which is pinkish red. I clear heat embossed the lips after stamping to make them shiny. I foam mounted all the elements onto my card as shown in the picture and added some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti

Today's last card is featuring Smooched and City Buildings

I silver heat embossed the  City Buildings background on a black cardstock and cut the upper part to create a skyline. The night sky was created by blending Deep Sapphire, Iris Blooms, Light Onyx  on the cardbase. I splattered white opaque ink on it and blended Hampton White pigment ink above the building line. I foam mounted the Ciry Building scene on the cardbase. I trimmed down the bottom part of it to show the silver glitter paper I adhered on the cardbase. I added yellow Pico embellisher on a window of a house I want to show off and colored the house in purple using a colored pencil. The lips from Smooched were stamped in Valentine Red and Lipstick Red and clear heat embossed. The hearts are from Beautiful Day Bicycle set. I stamped them in red as well clear heat embossed and cut with the coordinating dies. The sentiment from Smooched set was white heat embossed on a silver cardstock and added onto the card using foam adhesives. I added the hearts and lips and some sequins from Lilac Blossoms to finish off the card. The small heart on the sentiment panel needed some Glossy Accents :).
