Hi guys! It's Saturday and that means another pair of cards with The Alley Way Stamps:) Apparently I was in a very CAS mood when I made both of these cards, a flowery CAS mood:) My first card today features stamps from Petal Pushers. The flower is heat embossed in clear and ink is blended over it. The flowers are all various sizes, but they are all cut from the same original stamp. Underneath I added a vellum vase with stems drawn with a copic.
My second card is a holiday poinsettia card stamped with snowflakes from the bonus Holiday Sparkles set. After die cutting the flower shape, I heat embossed the snowflakes and then blended red ink over it. For natural items like flowers, leaves, sky backgrounds, I prefer to use a blended ink for color rather than use solid cardstock. The color has more depth and seem more natural.
I bent the petals a bit so that they lift off the card. Finally, a little bit of bling (okay, a lot!) and a sentiment! So easy!
Mahalo and Aloha,
