First I’d like to thank you all for your feedback on my previous project with a stenciled flower pot! You are the best and I appreciate each of your comment! And today I prepared two beautiful cards for you!
This time I tried some no-line coloring and gold trims that I always wanted to try as they look gorgeous! I chose navy blue + brownish yellow colors along with the gold and white for these two. Actually blue+yellow in all possible tones and shades is one of my top color combinations that will never fail. Do you have such combinations?
I stamped images with Sand Dunes Crisp Dye Ink and started coloring with watercolor brush pens and watercolor brush. To achieve more detailed look I added touch of watercolor pencils.
Once my flowers were colored and die cut I took Fenstone Decorative Element in gold to create my focal point composition in the card’s center. For the sentiment I used “Thank you” phrase from Layered Cupcake Stamp Set – love the font!
This time I used Timeless Frame for the focal point and put my flowers in that frame like in a vase.
Sweet sentiment is also from Layered Cupcake Stamp Set and is placed diagonal adding interest to the card.
I also added little splashes with Dusk Metallic Shimmer Spray and gold watercolor.
Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
Hello everyone! Sveta is here and it’s my turn to focus on one of the newest stamp sets from the March Release and it will be the Layered Cupcake Stamp Set!
This is the perfect set for everyone with a sweet tooth! I love everything about this set. The cupcake is just so easy to stamp with the layers. Also the sentiments and it’s font are just amazing!
For my first card I created a soft pastel background. I used the cupcake and only few layers of it (outline image + solid layers). I used the lightest colors of the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks families: Frosty Pink, Blush, Buttercream, Frayed Leaf, Mountain Mist, Sea Glass, Soft Lilac, Sand Dunes, Morning Frost.
Then I used Soft Lilac Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray to add little splashes with a spray stick. I have to confess that these shimmer ink sprays have stole my heart. They shimmer like a crazy and it’s so beautiful so I can’t stop use them. I heat embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder on a cute tag made using Handmade Tags Die Set on Jet Black Cardstock. As my sentiment a little bit wider then a tag I repeated it on a background with Crisp Jet Black Dye ink to create the illusion of a full word.
As you can see colors are “playing” in the sun. They become more intensive in the shadow and softly sparkling in the light.
I left the background to dry. I then heat embossed the outline image of cupcake with silver embossing powder. Then I added a detail layer with a white one.
Finally, my third card is similar to the previous with it’s composition but different in technique. It’s a one layer card with classic layered stamping.
Hope you enjoyed today’s cupcakes! Thanks and sweet kisses to all of you!
