Hey there everyone! I am sharing three beautiful cards with you sharing one of the hottest stamps from the newest release, the Bouquet of Love Stamp Set.
I love how my cards turned out, I spent the day creating four cards and did film the video for all the cards but didn't have the time to edit a long video. Anyway, I will however add the videos to my personal channel later in the week. Let's start with projects!
The Classy Monochrome Card
If you know my work, you know that I always create at least one monochrome card. They always look different from each other but they ALWAYS look beautiful. That is the beauty of Altenew stamps; you can use them as is without adding any color to them.
Stamp the image from Bouquet of Love Stamp on cream-colored cardstock in Obsidian Pigment Ink. Next, pour over Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. Use the coordinating die to die-cut the image and set it aside. Tip: die-cut an extra layer and adhere it to the image to make it sturdy. For the card front, dry emboss a black panel, the size of the card front, using the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere the panel onto a card base. Then adhere the stamped die-cut onto the card front with foam tape. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment. Fussy cut it and adhere it to the card front with foam tape.
The Spotlight Card
This started off as stamping on a spare piece of cardstock which is a leftover A2 Loose Watercolor Cardstock by the way. This was heat embossed in Platinum Embossing Powder. And then colored with multiple Watercolor Brush Markers namely; Desert Night, Lagoon, Just Green, Sweet Leaf, Lime, Ultramarine, and Jet Black. I liked it so much that I created a whole card out of it for the upcoming video blog hop. But knowing me, I cant just use a watercolor panel as is and create a clean and simple-looking card. Therefore, I placed the panel along with the card base in my stamp positioner and placed the horizontal piece where I wanted it. Then I positioned my stamp and removed the watercolored piece and stamped the image onto the card base in grey ink.
I used a writing pencil to add shading to the image on the card base. And with the help of a blending stump, blended it out. Once the shading was done, I glued the watercolored piece onto the card base and then stamped the sentiment.
To finish, I added fine black paint splatters from the Essential 12 Pan Watercolor Set.
The Pretty Vellum Card
It was a tough competition picking out a winner among the first card and this one which one was easiest and fastest to create. And unfortunately or fortunately? we have no winner here as both these cards were created rather quickly. These are my hassle-free, go-to designs. You have watched me share them time and again. For this, I stamped the image on vellum in Embossing Ink. Then I poured over Golden Peach Powder Embossing Powder and heat set it. After this I used the coordinating die and die cut the image.
Next, I used the Peach Perfect Artist Alcohol Marker to color behind the vellum and filled in the areas completely. To add a bit more oomph, I also took Crimson Artist Alcohol Marker and added shading to the flower centers and the connecting points/starting points of the leaves. This added so much to the look.
After this, I adhered Golden Peach Washi Tape onto cream-colored cardstock and then over it, I adhered the vellum die-cut with Glue Tape. I cut off the overhanging bits but instead of discarding them, I adhered them to other areas of the panel.
Additionally, for sparkle, I added some splatters of metallic watercolor from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set. And then adhered a heat embossed sentiment.
You can watch the process video for the card below or on YouTube.
