Good morning! Julie here. Today I am welcoming Ana back to our blog. Ana used this month's Meadow Flowers stamp set and alcohol markers to make this absolutely beautiful flower card. Be still my heart! Read on...I promise you'll be inspired to make some stamped flower cards too!
Hello crafty friends!
It’s Ana and I am back today with a card that features the gorgeous Meadow Flowers stamps. The stamps are the latest release in the Greenhouse Society Collection of flower stamps and matching dies!
When I saw this floral image, I literally ran into my craft room and stamped these beauties about 15 times! I have already made 4 cards out of the images I stamped, and I am sure I will be using all of them in a very near future.
These floral stamps are just asking to be colored, and today I am sharing a very simple alcohol marker coloring process.
I started with cutting a piece of heavyweight cardstock to 5” x 10” and scoring it at 5”. Next, I cut a piece of marker paper to 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ and using my stamp positioner, stamped the sentiment in the center and Meadow Flowers image in all four corners with alcohol marker friendly ink.
I colored the stems first with Copic markers using a 3-color blend (G99, G94 and G21).
For the flowers I used 4-color blend (AP1, AP2, AP3 and AP4) and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.
For the stamen I chose dark yellow color I thought would look most realistic and work with the color of the flowers (below is a close up).
Once the images were colored, I added craft foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to a piece of black layering cardstock, then adhered the completed piece to the card base.
For a little bit of shine and interest, I added glass droplets.
This beautiful floral stamp set also has a matching set of dies called the Meadow Flowers Crafting Dies. I haven’t used them for today’s project, but you'll find a ton of project ideas on the TechniqueTuesday.com website using both the Meadow Flower stamps and dies. 😊
Thank you so much for stopping by today and until next time I wish you Happy Crafting!
Oh, such a lovely stamped flower card! I love the rich colors she used to color the flowers framing the sentiment. I hope you're inspired to go and make a gorgeous flower card like this with the Meadow Flowers stamp set, or one of the other flowers in the Greenhouse Society collection.
PS: Greenhouse Society members, we shipped the Meadow Flowers to you earlier this month. I hope you get them out and make a stamped flower card like this one!
