Premiere of In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet with Joni Andaya + Essentials: Audrey Cutaways + In a Word Cutaways
Hello there and welcome to Day 2 of the Winnie & Walter April/May Release Blog Hop! I am so super excited that Julie and Shay asked me to be part of the release and showcase their new fantabulous products! If you would like to start at the beginning of this awesome hop please click HERE to go to the Winnie & Walter blog.
If you are a follower of my blog you know that I am a lover of floral stamps…… and today Winnie and Walter are showcasing an amazing one today! I love this new set In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet and I have two cards to share with you today using the set….
For this first card I masked off the left side of my card so I could create a floral pattern strip on the right edge. I used a mix of the flowers from the set and inked them in soft muted shades and also added some Copic colouring to the flowers that were not solid. The tag is from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways and that fab sentiment is a peek at another upcoming set! (I know I’m so mean giving you all these peeks hehe).
My second card uses the set in a different way…
I stamped and heat embossed the large outline images of the flowers onto watercolour card and then watercoloured the piece adding a lot of colour to the top edge and then pulling the colour out so it faded away. For the sentiment I used The Big, the Bold and Comfort and heat embossed it onto vellum before attaching it to my card.
I would really love to know what you think of my cards! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog If your interested I’m also onFacebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.
