Hello and welcome to day 1 of the Ink to Paper March release countdown! I have a lot to share today using quite a few of the new release products! To begin, I have three cards using a fun new floral set called Prominent Petals! I've also paired these flowers with the new Dainty Deliveries Frame die!
To begin this card, I die cut the Dainty Deliveries Frame out of Lemon Tart cardstock and then layered it onto a panel of the same cardstock using liquid glue. I added the largest Love to Layer: Scalloped Circle die cut in the center and then the medium doily die cut from the Delicate Doilies to use as an anchor for the different colored blooms and leaves!
The two sentiments are from the previously released Lush Bloom stamp set and they are stamped in black and then added to the center of the floral cluster using foam squares.
Each of the flowers has an outline image and then different "filler" stamps for the petals, thus the name "Prominent Petals"!
There's also some of these fun circle clusters for you to add either background details or detail directly to the flower. I will showcase how to use them in a background on my third card today!
My second card for today uses the Dainty Deliveries Frame in a different way. I turned it horizontally onto the vertical panel using liquid glue.
I chose to create some poppy type flowers for this design using red and black inks for a dramatic look!
The "sent with love" sentiment is also from the Prominent Petals set and I stamped it directly to the white panel underneath the flowers.
I added some black paint splatter over the top of the main panel using a paint brush.
You could also stamp the outline image using something different than black ink for a softer look.
I used the Nesting Basics: Pierced Rectangles dies around the perimeter of the white panel to add even additional detail to this simple design!
The idea for my third card using the Prominent Petals was actually from the "assembled examples" graphic for the stamp set. I really liked the layout and that it showcased all of the different images together!
I used white and pink embossing powder on the flowers and leaves to give the speckled portions more drama. You can also see how I added the pink portion to the background.
The flowers are all layered onto a panel that was die cut using the new Love to Layer: Torn Edges dies.
It really helps add some visual detail to the edges to keep the design moving!
This "hello friend" sentiment is also from the Prominent Petals stamp set and is stamped strategically between the stem! ha ha!
My 4th and final card for today uses the new "Flying By" stamp set paired with the Dainty Deliveries Frame. I chose to do some emboss resist with the butterfly for a whimsical feeling!
I added the color using blender brushes and then spritzed some water over the top using a spray bottle. I set it aside to dry and got to work on the background.
I added the same colors of ink that I used on the butterfly around the edges of a white piece of cardstock. I then layered the Dainty Deliveries frame over the top using liquid glue and a frame that has some blended purple ink.
I added the butterfly die cut to another one of the Love to Layer: Torn Edges die cuts with foam squares. I added some Hawaiian Shores ink splatter to the card front using a paint brush!
The sentiments are from the "Flying By" stamp set and are added using foam squares. A few sparkling clear sequins finish off this design! I might need to add some shimmer spray before it heads to its new home! ha ha! Join me tomorrow for day 2 of the release! Thanks for fluttering by!
