Breathtaking Bouquet Spotlight Coloring

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another card using the beautiful background stamp Breathtaking Bouquet.  I shared three cards yesterday using this same stamp set.  If you missed that post you can check it out by clicking here.  Today's card is using the Spotlight coloring technique this is a super fun and easy technique that allows you to spotlight a certain area of a stamped image.  Or you can use it to add interest to your card.  I used it to do both, and here's a look at today's project.  

Tips & Tricks: 

Use the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp to create beautiful floral backgrounds you can use all year long for card making and other paper projects. This background image is ideal for coloring techniques.  To create today's card I started out by stamping the background image onto the So Saffron cardbase in matching So Saffron Ink.  Once I had that done I then stamped it again onto a piece a whisper white cardstock in Tuxedo Black ink.  After stamping it the second time it was time to start some Stampin' Blends Coloring.  


I colored all the flowers using the following Blends;  So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose and Mossy Meadow for the leaves.  I used both the light and dark of each color to color most of the flowers, using the dark to light coloring technique.  Meaning I started with the darkest color in the shadow areas and then blended them out with the lighter colors.  I did this for all of them but the rose.  For the rose I started out with Daffodil Delight light in the dark areas and then used the So Saffron dark over that before blending it out with the light So Saffron blends.   For the leaves I added the dark in the shadow areas that are overlapped by the flowers, and along the center of the leaves.  I then colored over them with the light Mossy Meadow.  

Once all the coloring was done I used my paper snips and cut out the flowers that I had colored.  I added it to the card base by attaching it with dimensionals.  I then stamped my sentiment from Sending you Thoughts Stamp Set (which can be earned with a $50 order during Saleabration for Free).  I then popped it up over the bouquet also using dimensionals to give it a nice lift.  I finished off the card by adding a little bling with the Basic Rhinestone Jewels.   Thanks for dropping by I hope that you are inspired to give spotlight coloring a try.  If you need any of the products that I used today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the shopping list below.

Three cards using Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp - Stampin' Up! (Facebook Live Mini Class)

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the cards that I made during my Facebook Live Mini Class last night.  Each week on Wednesday I do a Free Facebook Live Mini Class featuring a stamp set or bundle from one of the new Stampin' Up!'s catalogs.  If you have never joined me during one of my lives I go live every Wednesday at 8 pm CST except the second Wednesday of the month then I go live at 3 pm CST.  Last night I focused on the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp Set as the main focus of my projects, and shared three different ways to use it.  I picked the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set to feature in last nights mini class because it was one of the stamps I feel in love with when I first saw it in the new January-June Mini Catalog.  I love how all the flowers are perfectly placed and come out just so striking.   Here's a look at my cards.

Tips & Tricks: 


For my first card I did a little ink blending to start out with Whisper White Craft Ink in the center of the Pretty Peacock cardstock and then I used Pretty Peacock and Night of Navy inks around the edges before heat embossing the background stamp on top.  By starting out on a piece of colored cardstock it makes your ink blending easier because you don't have to ink blend so much.  By adding the whisper white in the center and blending outwards you create a glow in the center of the cardstock, as you can see above.  


For the second card I stamped the background in Crumb Cake ink on my Crumb Cake base.  Once I had that done I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the stamparatus and stamped again using tuxedo black ink.  I then did a little fussy cutting for the rose.  I then took it and did a little quick coloring.  I swiped some color onto it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend marker, and then used the textured stamp from Dressed to Impress Stamp set.  This allowed me to do some quick coloring without a lot of work.  


For my last card I stamped the background stamp on Whisper White in Petal Pink ink and cut it down to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.  I matted it onto a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and then onto a Purple Posy card base.  I added a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper matted with Lovely Lipstick to the front of the card to add a little color and texture.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a little Lovely Lipstick piece.
