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!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…
