Facebook Live Tuesday 16th June – Replay. Welcome to the replay of the Facebook Live I hosted on Tuesday 16th June. I hope you enjoy taking a look at what we made. As ever, there is some chat at the start of my recording. If you want to skip that, then fast forward to about 13.30 mins.
This week was all about the florals, and we used a Bundle and a standalone stamp set. In fact I didn’t actually use the Bundle as a bundle, well, other than for the inside of the card (which I don’t think counts!). I have ended up with three very different cards all are florals, and all are stunning in their own right.
Hand Drawn Blooms
I started with the Hand-Drawn Blooms card. This was the stamp set I used on Saturday for my SimpleStamping Saturday projects, but when I used it for those projects, I made, what I would call, ‘expected’ cards. At this week’s Coffee and Cards I wanted to show that this is not a ‘one trick pony’ stamp.
For this project I used a Crumb Cake layer and stamped the flowers repeatedly over the front with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My original plan had been to colour the the image, but decided it was pretty without any additional colour. I mounted the layer onto a piece of Whisper White card and then ran a piece of the White ‘Linen’ Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Seasons Combo, round. I then added the whole piece to a Cinnamon Cider Card base. The sentiment is from the stamp set, also heat embossed in White and then mounted across the card on Dimensionals. The finishing touch for the outside are some Basic Pearls. I stamped a single daisy in Cinnamon Cider on the bottom right of the liner.
Blossoms in Bloom
I originally intended to use a Daffodil Delight card base for the next card, but it was not to be. Before starting on the card, I ‘conditioned’ the large floral stamp (see the video for how to do that) and then stamped it in So Saffron on Whisper White. I had mounted it in the Stamparatus, so it was easy to stamp again when I missed a couple of areas. This is when I was intending to use Daffodil Delight around the edge of the centres of the flowers, but it really was not dark enough, so I switched to using Bumblebee and applying it with a Sponge Dauber. This was actually a good change because So Saffron and Bumblebee have a very similar softness to them. The centre dots were stamped in Bumblebee.
Because it looked a little plain, I added some leaves around the floral, using Granny Apple Green in first a second generation. This finished the front well and gave it more balance. All that was needed was a piece of matching Bumblebee ribbon and a sentiment. I used Bumblebee for the stamping and the card behind it. As I often do, I trimmed down the punched stamped element and extended the punched Bumblebee element. Of course ! also stamped a flower on the inside of the card.
Many Layered Blossoms
I just had to make a card using these dies, I had yet to do so. I decided to go for all the mauves. The Card base is Purple Posy, the more solid die cut is Highland Heather, which left Gorgeous Grape for the fine layer. This card is really not difficult to put together. The tricky part is adding the final layer, but a piece of Stampin’ Sponge, some Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and a Silicone Craft Mat deal with that very quickly.
The final touches for this card were some Basic Rhinestones in the centres of the larger florals. In the inside I stamped a sentiment and small floral in Highland Heather. All Done
