Happy Monday! Today I am sharing an Ornate Style floral bouquet featuring the large floral spray from the Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set. This stamp set is one of the products in the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release. The floral image begs to be colored with markers or using watercolor techniques. For today’s card, Stampin’ Blends Markers are used.
- Create card base using Rococo Rose (5-1/2″ x 11″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold).
- For second layer, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock (5-1/4″ x 4″) and texture emboss using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Attach to card base with strong adhesive.
- Stamp the sentiment, Thinking of You, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a 1/2″ x 4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. Next, layer the sentiment piece onto a 4″ x 3/4″ strip of Rococo Rose cardstock. Set aside to add to card after adding the floral piece.
- Using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamp the large floral onto a 4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.
- With paper snips, fussy cut the floral spray leaving a small border (approximately 1/8″). Color around the border and outline of flowers using the Smoky Slate Light Stampin’ Blends Marker.
- Color the flowers and leaves using the following Stampin’ Blends Markers: Rococo Rose Light & Dark, Daffodil Delight Light, Balmy Blue Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark
- Attach the floral to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then add the sentiment piece using a strong adhesive.
- Using the Smoky Slate Light Stampin’ Marker to color a piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Tie into a small bow and add to sentiment using a Mini Glue Dot.
- To complete the card front, embellish the small flower centers with Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
And, don’t forget to embellish the card interior!
Coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Markers takes me back to being a child and coloring with crayons. There’s something therapeutic about coloring!
