Hello everyone! I have three cards to share with you today!
I had the pleasure to play with the new stamp and die collection, called Dreaming by Penny Black. It is a lovely release again which includes beautiful floral stamps, cute critters and gorgeous scenic stamps.
My plan was actually to make a floral card using Flower Collection (30-575) stamp set. But it ended up with three cards :).
Let's take a look at my first card.
I was coloring this floral cluster from Flower Collection(30-575) set during the latest 30 day coloring challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin. I started first with the black and white flowers and added the red flowers as my focal element.
I stamped the floral cluster two times on a white cardstock panel in gray Memento ink. I colored the image using C Copic colors and added details using Polychromos pencils also in cool gray. I then splattered gold watercolor on the panel and let it dry.
I then stamped the floral cluster once more on a separate white cardstock. I used pink ink for the flowers and light green ink for the leaves. I colored the image using Copic markers again. For the flowers I used some red colors and added a little bit of orange. I drew the stamen using a thin black liner and fussy cut the image and set it aside.
I cut the base panel with black and white florals using the largest die from Leaf Stitched Frames (51-552)die set and mounted it flat on a kraft cardbase. To add the red flowers I cut a circle using a die from Stitched Circles (51-551) die set from a kraft cardstock. As the faux stitch appears outside of the circle I could get a circle without the stitch pattern. I gold heat embossed the edge of the panel to add some accents.
I adhered the floral cluster on the circle piece and foam mounted it on the card. The sentiment is from Hedgie Harmony(30-589) set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and added it to the card.
Next card is featuring Hedgie Harmony (30-589) set and Stitched Circles(51-551) die set
As I cut a circle from a kraft cardstock for the first card, an idea came into my mind. I cut the same circle two more times on a A2 sized panel of kraft cardstock so that I have a panel with three stitched circles.
I stamped three hedgehogs from Hedgie Harmony(30-589) on a A2 sized white cardstock panel in black Memento ink. I used the kraft panel with three windows as my guide to place the stamps. I then colored the hedgehogs and instruments using Copic markers. I ink blended around the images in yellow, blue and pink respectively using Distress inks.
I colored a strip of white cardstock using Copic markers in green and cut it using one of the Garden Edgers (51-549) die set. I adhered the grass behind the circle windows and foam mounted the front panel on the card. The sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of cardstock which I colored in ombre green using Copic markers. To finish off I scattered some shiny sequins.
The last card is showcasing a cute bear and a hedgehog celebrating someone's birthday. They are from the adorable Birthday BFF set (30-587).
I started off by stamping the image on a watercolor paper in black pigment ink. I watercolored the hedgehog and the polar bear. To make the white bear pop, I added watercolor wash in the background and splattered white ink on it.
I cut the front panel using Leaf Stitched Frames (51-552) die set and Stitched Circles(51-551) die set from some textured white cardstock and foam mounted it on the card on which I adhered the colored image.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I made a 3D banner for the sentiment with some white cardstock. The banner doesn't look perfect but still cute :). Some iridescent sequins were my finishing touch for this card.
So that's all for today.
Thank you so much for staying with me through this long post. Hope you enjoyed looking my cards :)!
Have a wonderful day!
