I wanted a bright cheerful summery card. I started by stamping the Background stamp on white card stock. This serves as my border. I stamped images from the Flower Pops Solid cling set; then die cut the individual pieces and layered them onto white card stock with a cross stitched border. I adhered this to a mat of poppy color card stock and foam taped it over the Summer Flower Pops Background. "Summer" was die cut using the Seasons die set. The word splendor I stamped with some alphabet stamps from my stash. I like repeating elements from the front on the inside of the card. Had so much fun, I kept going...
For this next card I wanted a softer look. I used the Flower Pops Detail cling set, heat embossed flowers in white on watercolor card stock. I masked the flowers and leaves to get the arrangement I wanted. Then I watercolored the flowers, leaves and background with Distress inks. I masked the entire floral arrangement and spritzed water over the background to add a little interest. Finished with a simple stitched frame.
For the third card, I used distressed oxide inks to create a background, then stamped the Flower Pops background using a purple dye ink first followed by a pearlesent pigment ink. Misti makes all this and more possible! I used the same inks and stamped part of the Sisters cling stamp on the front. The rest of the stamp I used as the inside sentiment. I hate waste so the oval cut out went on the inside. To finish off the card, I traced the oval scalloped outline with Kirarina Wink Dandelion pen to give it some depth, fussy cut a couple of the pop flowers from the background stamp, one for the front and one for the inside; gave them some sparkle with a few brushes of Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen. Embellished with linen bow and pearl on the front
