Flowering Foils Blooming Tag Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to my blog again today!  I have another card to share with you today featuring the Flowering Foils Speciality Designer Series Paper and Tags In Bloom Stamp Set Saleabration items.  I wanted to share with you the fun thank you card that i created for Kylie's International Blog Highlights today.  Please make sure you vote for my card.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card by coloring the designer series paper.  I find that this paper colors in so many ways; I've used blends, stampin' write markers, and ink to color it.  Get this high-quality patterned paper featuring various floral designs and a checker design. This printed paper is great for card making, scrapbooking, and other paper crafts. The rose gold and silver foil designs will make any project shine. You can even color the white areas using your favorite coloring tools. Earn this fancy paper FREE March 3–March 31, 2020, during part two of our Sale-A-Bration promotion!  After coloring I cut mine down to 4 x 5 1/4.  For my metric friends you will cut your DSP to 14.2cm x 9.8cm.  

I then matted my dsp to a piece of Soft Seafoam Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 (metric will do 14.4 cm x 10 cm).  I then took some of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and colored it with my Soft Seafoam Stampin' Blends.  I love to color white ribbon with my blends to get a custom ribbon that will match all my projects.  This is so easy to do since Stampin' Up! has perfect color coordination.  

After attaching the ribbon and tie a bow with the extra I added it to my layer and secured the bow on with a Mini Glue Dot.  I stamped my outside sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using the Tags in Bloom Saleabration Stamp Set.  I stamped the outside image in Flirty Flamingo Ink and the sentiment in Soft Seafoam.  Then I used the Label Me Fancy Punch and punched it out.  I attached the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

At this point it was time to attach everything to my Sahara Sand card base which was cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  For my metric friends you will do 10.5 cm x 29.8 cm and score in half.  


For the inside of my card I added a strip of the Flowering Foil Speciality Designer Series paper and my Thank you Sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set (in Flirty Flamingo ink) onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4 (or 10 cm x 14.4 cm).

Kylie's International Blog Highlights

Hello and welcome to my blog; my second post for today is part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights.  Please take a few minutes and vote for my card.  Speaking of which I created a little watercolor card.  I used the All That You Are stamp Set for my card.  Here's a little look at it.

I started out by stamping the largest flower twice on a piece of watercolor cardstock.  Next I stamped about five of the additional flowers from the stamp set.  Once I had everything stamped I started the watercoloring process.  Building up layer after layer until I had the desired hues and tones.  


After everything was dried I painted the background with a blue shade and set the card front to the side to dry.  While this was drying I used the Frosted Bouquet framelits and cut out the medium flowers.  Once everything was cut out I take a piece of vellum cardstock and heat embossed my sentiment on it using copper embossing powder.  I then added the card front to a piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and attached it to a Thick Whisper White Card base after wrapping my vellum sentiment on the front.  At this point I could come back and attach the other flowers using stampin' dimensionals around the sentiment and other flowers.  To finish off the card I added a few Glitter Enamel dots.
