Freshly Picked Stamped Bouquet Card

Hey, hey. 

I hope you had a great weekend. We had a quick glimpse of spring that quickly faded into blistering winds and little snow flurries. Luckily today's a holiday here in MA so I get to stay inside nice and bundled. While cozied underneath a blanket I'll be dreaming of spring. Perhaps I'll set up all the spring cards I've been making lately and pretend I'm in a flower market. I can dream. 

Anyways, today I created a super simple card using my new Freshly Picked stamp and die set. You may have seen this card featured as a sneak peek during release week. I'm so excited to show you how I made it!

Let's get started...

To start my arrangement I stamped the paper wrap image and little triangle onto the coordinating die-cuts using Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I love this color for a light kraft paper look. From there I moved on to stamping all the floral images in different Catherine Pooler inks. I had way too much fun stamping all these sweet images.

Once all my florals we stamped I worked on building my banner. This image has three different layers that can be used to create a dimensional looking banner. I started with the solid base in my lightest color or ink, stamped the two tail ends over top in the same ink (it will appear darker since there is already a stamped layer beneath), and finished with the two shadow pieces in my darkest ink. The result is so spectacular and becomes even more so when you add a sentiment on top. I stamped "freshly picked" from my Thanks a Bunch stamp set.

Next I got to work on assembling my freshly picked bundle! I used both foam tape and tape runner adhesive to glue all the elements onto a kraft A2 size cardbase. I encourage you to have fun making your arrangements, but if you do need a little help you can download my stamping guide here. Once you have all the florals arranged, you can add in the little triangle piece at the top of your bouquet to make it look as though your entire bundle is wrapped in paper. I also stamped a few dots in a white pigment ink around my bundle to add some more detail. 

Watch me put together my bouquet in my process video below...

In the video I showed you two options of how to finish off your bouquet: add the twine bundle or stamped banner. Make sure to let me know which is your favorite in the comments below!

As usual, I can't decide.

Abstract Florals Faux-Watercolor Technique with Distress Oxides by Zinia

Hi friends! 

I wanted to share a card project with you that created by Zinia from Abstract Inspiration as part of a guest designer position. I became infatuated with Zinia's work on Instagram and knew that I had to see her take on some of my products. 

I sent her my Abstract Florals and Script Greetings stamps which she will be using for three video posts throughout the next couple weeks. 

Here's her first project using a faux-watercolor technique with the Ranger Distress Oxides (raise your hands if you're as obsessed with these as I am!)

I hope you enjoyed today's card! I look forward to seeing what else Zinia creates using two of my favorite stamp sets.

Celebrate You Deserve It Card by Laurie C.

Hello everyone!  I hope your week is off to a good start!  I'm back to share another card with you.  This card combines many RAH products, including the wildly popular Script Greetings Die Set (now back in stock!).

I started by die cutting the floral images from the Find the Beauty Die Set onto some bright and cheery colored cardstock. I then took the coordinating images from the Find the Beauty stamp set and white heat embossed them on each die cut.

I die cut the "celebrate" word, four times out of white cardstock and adhered them together using the Zig Two Way Glue Pen.  My card panel was cut from white cardstock using the smallest frame die from the Find the Beauty Die set.  I blended some Scattered Straw Distress Ink to the middle portion of the panel and did a few water flicks to create some bleaching effect.  The flowers were adhered to the panel using a combination of foam adhesive and tape runner.

I placed the celebrate over top of the flowers, placing adhesive only where the sentiment touched (also, used the Zig pen).  It really looks like the sentiment is floating.  The rest of the sentiment was stamped onto the banner die from the Folded Gift Tag Die Set in grey ink.  To make the banner a bit more dimensional, I cut one from grey cardstock as well, cut it in two and placed it behind the white banner.

To finish, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment die cut and the flowers and added a few Radiant Pineapple Sequins.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today!!  Have a great week!!
