Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things September release countdown! I really really love this months release... probably because there are some great fall themed stamps and I LOVE this time of year! ;)
For my first card today, I used the new Delicate Pretty Poppies stamp set to create a clean and simple card with the flowers taking center stage. They are so pretty so I really wanted them to stand out on the card.
I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock, coloured them in with Copic markers and then adhered them onto the card. For some added dimension, I stamped and coloured the flowers a second time and then added partial petals to the flowers on the card with foam adhesive. I love how realistic it makes the flowers look. ;)
Before I adhered the flowers to the card, I masked off a rectangle in the center, stamped it with the Romantic Script background stamp and Sno Cone ink and then added in some more of the Sno Cone ink with an ink blending tool. I love the soft blue area under the flowers... it really helps to ground them.
I finished the card by stamping on the sentiment with black ink and adding some sequins onto the card front.
For my second card today, I used the new Etched Flower background and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Once it was embossed, I coloured the entire thing in with Copic markers.
Since the background had a lot going on, I wanted a simple bold sentiment that would really stand out so I used the Thanks die and cut it from black cardstock. To make it a little less 'flat' looking, I added clear glitter with a Wink of Stella glitter marker and then covered the entire thing in glossy accents.
Once the sentiment was dry, I matted the entire panel onto a black cardstock mat and then adhered it to a white card base. The black cardstock really helps it pop off the white background.
