Blue Flowers for Christmas

Hello dear frends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Blue Flowers for Christmas and flowers for everything! I love the stamps of Kennedy Grace Creations because they have an amazing collection of flowers and they are my favorites!  Today I have a project to share with you using the Grace's Little Note stamp set. Take a look at my card:

 
This is not a Christmas stamp set but with a little of creativity you can make whatever you want. And this is what I made. I just decided to stamp one of the flowers included on the stamp set Grace's Little Note with Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder over Basic Black Cardstock and melted the powder. I tried not to connect the flowers so since I stamped one by one it was very easy to remove the powder when I didn't want to connect the flowers.

 
Then using Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils I colored each flower. In this opportunity I went with the blues and greens. I used two different blues and two different greens, but depending of your colors and the color of your cardstock you can experiment other tones.

 
When I was satisfied with the coloring I resized the layer and pasted over a whisper white card base and die cut the word Joy using black fun foam and Gold/Gold Rinea Foiled Paper. I pasted the black fun foam behind of the paper foiled just to give more dimension to the word and then I pasted the word directly over the card. 

The Gold Embossing Powder of the flowers and the Gold of the Rinea Foiled Paper of the die cut word gave to the card the perfect shine for the season and another advantage of using this technique is that you can retouch the intensity of the colors until have the tone that you want. 

I hope my project inspires you to experiment new ideas with your flowers and use new or older techniques that are always fun. I wish you a very happy and blessed thanksgiving day and enjoy my flowers for Christmas!

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 …
