Bold statement flowers

I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.

The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.

Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

Thankful for you

There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.

Girl, make a wish

For some reason I haven’t shared a card where I’ve used a Mo Manning stamp for quite a while now, so I thought today would be a good day for just that. This adorable stamp, Mona, simply screamed to be coloured up last month and now I’ve made it into a pretty simple card. I’ve used a frame die by MFT Stamps, a stamped sentiment by Pretty Pink Posh, a chipboard by Make It Crafty and some enamel dots by Altenew.

Uptown party

This stamp must be one of the stamps I have used the most. It is by Stamping Bella. I’ve used washi tape to make the background behind the girls. It is by Altenew. The stamp is coloured up with Copic Marker and I added the glitter effect to the white dress, but went without the white gelly roll for the red dress for a bit of a different effect. I then cut the panel to the right size and drew in a border around the edge.

The sentiment is in Norwegian and means “to a wonderful friend like you” and is by Mathia Design.

Your own kind of beautiful

I have another card for you using Paint-a-Flower Poppy by Altenew. I have, yet again, coloured it up with my RV90-series Copic markers. I’ve already done this twice; one as a no-lines version here and another with repeated stamping here.

Like the previous version of this card (see here) I have cut the flower out by hand. For the background I’ve used the Feathery Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in the colour Milled Lavender. The sentiment is part of the Paint-a-Flower Paeonia Japonica and I stamped it using the Sugarplums mini cubes set. To finish it off I drew in some dots with the same Copic marker as I used on the darkest part of the flower and put some enamel dots around the text.
