Here's a look at what's in this release:
The panel then opens up for a place to write your message.
This project also uses the Vibrant Florals Hot Foil Plate and Simple Coloring Stencils:
This time I foiled on blue cardstock with blue foil and kept to a monochromatic look for the blooms, coloring them with Caribbean Sky Crisp Dye Ink.
I then trimmed and fussy cut the panel to layer over a piece of grey cardstock embossed with the Garden Harmony 3D Embossing Folder.
The brand new Altenew double sided tape is fantastic and absolutely perfect for adhering vellum...I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Obsidian ink and Crystal Clear embossing powder, trimmed and adhered to the card front, no adhesive showing through the vellum at all!
After applying Tea Party Washi tape to white cardstock, I die cut with the Itty Bitty Branches Die set and arranged on black cardstock which is then adhered to a white slimline card front die cut with the Nesting Slim Rectangles die. The Simply Thank You die and gold mirror cardstock combine for the sentiment.
The Bountiful Bouquet stamp set is a fabulous layering rose cluster set with a coordinating die. The outline stamp is the bouquet but you can stamp the blooms individually without the outline as I've done with this bloom. I stamped the layers in Orange Sherbert, Canyon Clay, Coral Berry and Grapevine Crisp Dye ink in the lower right corner of an A2 size card front.
I then trimmed on a diagonal, fussy cutting around the bloom and layered over paper from the Essential Black and White 6x6 paper pack. These are then matted on paper from the Poured Acrylic 6x6 paper pack and embossed with the Angled Mosaic 3D embossing folder which I've also used to emboss a larger piece of Poured Acrylic paper for the card front.
A strip of gold mirror cardstock borders the embossed bloom and patterned paper. A few leaves, die cut from gold mirror cardstock with the Itty Bitty Branches die, frame the sentiment stamped with Jet Black Crisp Dye ink from the Bountiful Bouquet stamp. The sparkle is from a light hand of Crystal Stickles applied over the raised areas on the bloom.
I heat embossed the outline layer with Rose Gold Embossing powder, stamped the layers with crisp dye inks, die cut with the coordinating die and then fussy cut the blooms apart.
The blooms are layered over a background created with the Cloudy Days 3D embossing folder and Dusk Crisp Dye Ink. I tucked in a few Itty Bitty Branches die cut from gold mirror cardstock and used Instant Dimension Foam Tape to adhere the heat embossed sentiment and the butterfly from the Meadow Reflections stamp set.
I used pretty much the same color palette for the blooms on this final project.
I mixed Sea Breeze watercolor brush marker ink with Altenew Embossing Paste then applied to watercolor cardstock through the Feeling Dotty stencil. Once that dried, I added Desert Night watercolor ink, misting the entire panel with water as well and set aside to dry.
After stamping and die cutting the bouquet, I adhered it to the watercolored panel with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
The Ultra Sticky Double Sided Tape worked like a charm to adhere the panel nice and flat on an A2 card base.
