Hello everyone!

Svitlana is here today sharing two very different cards. They’re different in the final look, color palettes and techniques used.

Card_160612_01

For the first card I used Vintage Flowers stamps set and the set of matching dies and it was made using layered die-cutting inlay technique.

First I cut a panel from yellow cardstock, cut a branch out of it and then started cutting out different flowers (I used only smaller ones from the set). Then I cut a branch from gray cardstock and the same flowers from white cardstock. I double-cut the branch and some flowers in the areas where they overlap (which is hard to explain so maybe I will film a video showing this technique, so stay tuned).

Then I adhered the panel to a gray card base and adhered all die-cuts in their negative space. Added stamping to the flowers using Altenew Jet Black ink. These flowers are multi-layered, but I only used one layer. To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Label Love set and several sequins.

The next card is made in chalkboard technique. It was very trendy in crafting world a couple years ago and is still trendy in decor. I personally believe that chalkboard is one of those trends that just became classic and is always trendy. And I personally have a weakness when it comes to chalkboard :)

To make this card on a black card base I stamped succulents from Altenew Succulents stamps set and a sentiment from Beautiful Day using white pigment ink .  Then I started coloring the succulents. I first was covering parts of an image with white pigment ink using Fantastix tool.

And then colored over with color pigment inks.

I drew a surface under the pots and added chalk effect by rubbing the card with a paper towel inked with white ink.

Hope you liked my cards. Have a great day!
