Since the list this was for is strictly Stampin' Up!, the materials listed below are all from SU. The top card uses the Fabulous Flowers, Brocade Basics and So Many Sayings Sets. To make the large flower:
- Color the flower with markers in the colors desired. I used turquoise on the center petals and green on the outer petals.
- Spritz the flower with water and stamp on white CS.
- Spritz stamp again and stamp the flower on the green panel to make the background paper. Note: I spritzed and stamped several times for multiple images.
- Allow the flower to dry, cut out, add pop-dots, and pull up some of the petals around the edge for more dimension.
The second card, on the left, was made using the Priceless and So Many Sayings Sets. Note that I Made a Popcorn Scallop Border and added eyelets in every other lower scallop. Directions for creating the popcorn scallop border are here. I also used a flower from the Pretties kit and colored it with dye reinker and water.
The final card (below) uses the Wanted, Fabulous Flowers and Priceless sets, along with the Sanded background. The words and the orange dots are covered with Crystal Effects. It is very striking in person! This is the card I sent to my partner. I think my boys chose it because it is a very in-your-face card -- the words just pop right off the page.
This is not a combination that I have ever worked with before, so it was a little challenging for me! I really like it, though -- such striking cards. So, which is your favorite?
