VIDEO: Multi-Toned Happy Heart Floral Card

by Erum Tasneem

Hello, friends!

Erum here today with an unusual flower color combination featuring the newly released Happy Heart Stamp Set.Altenew Happy Heart Stamp Set | Dream Big Stamp Set | Mandala Die | Halftone Hearts Die | Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0Sorry about the photo, it’s a bit wonky.

I am using quite a few Altenew products on my project today. There’s a video of the entire process at the end of this post if you want to watch that instead of reading.

The way I colored this flower is exactly the same way I colored the images on THIS card. A few of you asked me for a video on it so I thought I’d just swap the colors but follow the same technique.

First, I die cut the Mandala Die and then die cut a heart frame out of Halftone Hearts Nesting Dies. Next, I glued the Halftone Hearts frame onto the Mandala die cut and snipped off the extra piece. By doing this, I ended up with a beautiful lacy heart.

Then, I stamped several images from the Happy Heart Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Permanent Black Ink. After letting the ink set for a bit, I started coloring the images with Artist Markers. My first layer or the base layer was Buttercream. After this, I added Sapphire then Persian Blue then Caribbean Sky and lastly blended all the lines with Arctic Artist Marker. Next, I went back in with the Buttercream and added more yellow. In the end, I added a few strokes of Frayed Leaf Artist Marker. Doing this made all the difference!

The next step was to work on the card front. For this, I used distress stains to add a bit of yellow and green color wash to gel my “tropical” looking flowers. I did this so that the white background doesn’t look too stark.

After arranging the spray, I stamped the butterfly from Dream Big Stamp Set and colored it with Artist Markers in Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, and Caramel Toffee. I die cut this butterfly with its coordinating die as well and popped it on the lacy die, opposite to the floral arrangement.

Erum, I have a friend here in Ohio named Erum, also from Pakistan. I love your cards. They are so bright and lively. Every thing just goes so well together. Great work. Can’t wait to see more.

Erum Tasneem April 22, 2018 - 04:48

That’s so cool! The bright and lively is a Pakistani thing (more subcontinental). I am sure your friend loves bold colours as well :)
