Stamped Poppy Card or Meadow Flowers? You Decide!
Hi everyone! It's Julie and I'm here to welcome Amy Kolling to our blog. Today Amy is showing us a couple of sweet flower cards she made using the Meadow Flower stamps and matching dies and the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies.
When I first saw this flower stamp set, I thought they would make amazing stamped poppy cards. But the leaves don't really match those on the poppy plant so we named it the Meadow Flower stamp set instead. Whether you color your stamped flowers to look like poppies, or make your flowers be some other color, the projects you make with these Meadow Flowers stamps and matching dies will be lovely!
Hello Technique Tuesday fans! Amy Kolling here to share a pair of clean and simple cards that feature one of the latest flowers in the Greenhouse Society Collection. These flower stamps and matching dies are named Meadow Flowers.
If you google Meadow Flowers, you will find gorgeous flowers in a multitude of colors. I black heat embossed the Meadow Flowers onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored my images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (No. 021, 230, 052, 070, 047, 041). Using a waterbrush, I pulled the color upward to do some shading. The flowers were die cut using the coordinating Meadow Flowers Crafting Die.
I used black ink to stamp two different sentiments from the Meadow Flowers stamp set. Then I used the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies to cut the sentiments out. The labels were adhered in the center to white top folding notecards and the Meadow Flowers were added with foam adhesive to the right. As final touches, a few white gems were added for some sparkle and the corners were rounded on each card.
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me here at Technique Tuesday!
Aren't Amy's cards lovely? Her orange flower really looks like a stamped poppy to me. Both of her cards are just beautifully simple!
