Fuchsias Anniversary Card

I love the pink and purple coloured Fuchsia flowers and have two plants(bushes rather) in my home…they bloomed beautifully over the summer and still have a few flowers blooming now and then…my younger daughter used to make garlands out of them when she was little…I wanted to use different colour inks for this stamp set but had to make at least one card with the pink and purple Fuchsias…I am also entering my card in The Flower Challenge #18…the theme for this month’s challenge is ‘anything goes’…

I started by creating a background for my card which would add to the charm of these beautiful flowers rather than attract all the attention…so I stamped the lace background stamp on a watercolour panel using watermark ink and heat embossed it with a super fine pearl embossing powder…I then covered the whole panel with red gold watercolour and set it aside to dry..

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the fuchsia and leaves and die cut them with the coordinating dies before adhering them to my card…toi add a bit of depth,I have added  some adhesive foam underneath the flowers and leaf branch at the front…

I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock as well as purple craft foam…I sponged some pink ink on the white die cut and layered them before adhering to the card front…

To embellish my card I have used some adhesive pearls and applied glossy accents over the sentiment and shimmer over the flowers…

Trying Out The Block Watercolor Stamping Technique

Anyone who is a big fan of Jennifer McGuire would’ve seen or even already tried out this block stamping technique that she shared a tutorial for earlier this month….it is the simplest way to create a background and great for teaching kids as well…I did not do any heat embossing on my cards as I wanted to use die cuts on them….

For these cards,I made the background first and then decided later which colour to use for the card base…I started by cutting watercolour cardstock to size and then used various distress inks  to dab on the acrylic block…here I have used the following shades – peacock feather,mustard seed,picked raspberry and aged mahogany…I then spritzed some water on the block and stamped that onto the watercolour cardstock…making sure it doesn’t move,I added something heavy on top and left it for about 5 mins…

Once the top layer was completely dry,I die cut the word hello from it and adhered rest of the top layer to a pink card base..I die cut the word hello again from pink craft foam and layered that under the die cut word before adhering it back to the card…

I die cut two trees and coloured them using Distress Inks before adhering them the the card front…and finally I have used a few sequins to embellish this card..

For my second card I chose a long narrow stamping block and die cut the watercolor cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die…I then dabbed distress inks onto this block…I have used seedless preserves,blueprint sketch,broken china salty ocean and tumbled glass here..spritzed it with water and stamped on the paper…how easy is that..??

Once dry,I adhered the top layer to a light blue card base and added a die cut word ‘congratulations’ on it..I used a gold foil cardstock for this…

I stamped a butterfly on vellum paper using wilted violet Distress Oxide ink and once dry,I cut it out and adhered it to the card front…

To embellish this card I have used some tiny gold star sequins..

Bright & Colourful Anniversary Card

I love bright cards and I’m surprised that I haven’t made such a colourful anniversary card before…I also enjoyed making all the coordinating embellishments for this card…
The card base is made from textured green cardstock and I have cut the top layer to size from watercolor paper…I blended in various bright distress inks onto the watercolor paper and water stamped on it using an embossing folder….I added a strip of dark blue glitter cardstock on one side on the top layer…
I stamped two of the flowers form Tim Holtz Flower Garden set on white cardstock and coloured them in with peerless watercolours…once dry,I cut them out and placed them on the bottom corner of the top layer…I also die cut and punched out butterflies in various sizes using silver glitter cardstock and placed them on the card…
For the sentiment I coloured piece of white cardstock with pink watercolour and die cut the words and placed them on the card…I also adhered rhinestones on all the butterflies…
