Gold Quatrefoil Roses Card


 

Hi everyone, Heidi here on the blog! Today I have a fun and quick but elegant card for you all.

To get this card started I stamped the roses from the beautiful Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper with Versafine “Vintage Sepia” ink. I clear heat embossed afterwards.

Then I started colouring the two featured roses for this card with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my Pentel waterbrush. I used the following colours: Tea Rose, Pink Flamingo, Mid Green, Olive Green and Haze Blue. After colouring and drying I fuzzy cut the image out with my Fiskars scissors, I also cut of the third rose that comes with this stamp and masked the brown stamped lines with some white Gelly Roll Pen.

Next I started working on the background: I die cut a rectangle with one of my rectangle nesting dies from some Strathmore Colored Pencil paper and stamped one of the sentiments from the same Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set on this panel with the brown ink as used before and using my MISTI stamping tool. After the sentiment was stamped I applied Nuvo Glimmer Paste in the colour “Golden Crystal” over a Crafter’s Workshop stencil called “Mini Quatrefoil Reversed” leaving the area around the sentiment clear and making sure that the area where the rose would be attached was completely covered. Then I set this panel aside to dry. I love the result this paste gives and the combination with this rose stamp is just awesome!


After the glimmer paste has dried I put this card together: I die cut a slightly larger stitched rectangle panel with one of my nesting dies from some matching card stock and adhered both panels together with liquid glue. Then I adhered these combined panels to a crème coloured linen textured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape and adhered the roses on top of this with 3D kit.

And for my finishing touch I adhered some sequins and micro beads from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Enchanted Evening” sequins mix with Ranger medium matte.

I hope you enjoyed and until the next time, wishing you a creative day!

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
