Trio of Floral Cards

Hi friends !
Good Morning :)

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you this fine morning ?

Today, I have a Trio of Floral Cards to share with you.
I wanted to create 3 different cards with the same stamp set, "Adore You" by Altenew. This stamp set is one of my favorites and definitely a must have for your cardmaking and other crafting projects. I used similar supplies & color scheme for the 3 cards to show that we can get a different look by making slight alterations. I've used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for watercoloring. They are currently on sale at Crafters Corner, so, it is a great time to grab them! All the supplies from the store are linked at the end of this post for your convenience :)

Let's get started.

Card 1: Happy

Photo Tutorial:

1. Stamped the flowers and leaves from Altenew's Adore You Stamp Set onto Watercolor Paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink 

 2. Watercolored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers & Koi Water Brushes.
Tip: Keep a few tissues nearby to dab off excess color/water 

3. Did ink smooshing on Dress My Craft Floral Oriental White Cardstock by scribbling blue markers onto a piece of acetate, spraying it with water and then smooshing the colors onto the paper. Did this a few times to get an organic look of ink splatter. 
Tip: Dry the colors before adding more layers of color on top

4. Fussy cut the images with the Cutter Bee Scissors
Tip: Darken the edges of the cut images with a black marker for a finished look 

5. Die cut the ink smooshed cardstock with the largest out of the Gina Marie Designs Rounded Stitched Rectangle Die set and also die cut the word happy a few times in black using Altenew's Happy die. Then stuck the die cuts together (to form a dimensional sentiment) using Ranger's Multi Medium Matte. 

6. Assembled the card by creating a floral cluster with the fussy cut images. Before adhering it to the stitched panel added some black thread under it for texture and interest. Then adhered the cluster with a few foam mounted elements and some adhered with glue. Then adhered the dimensional sentiment & foam mounted the panel onto the A2 sized card base. Finally, embellished the card with a few Nuvo Drops.

Card 2: Thank You (Clean & Simple Style- CAS)


1. Added a striped washi tape to the right side of the beige colored card (A2 size).
2. Created a floral cluster & adhered some of the elements with foam tape & the rest with glue
3. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink
4. Embellished the card with a few Nuvo Drops

Card 3: Have a Beautiful Day


1. Created watercolored stripes with zig markers and a water brush on a rounded stitched rectangle die cut. Also created a little splatter with black ink to add interest to the background. 
2. Stamped the sentiment in black from Altenew's Floral Frames Stamp Set
3. Created a floral cluster with the water colored & fussy cut images. Then adhered the floral cluster to the panel.
4. Foam mounted the panel onto an A2 sized white card base.
5. Finally, embellished the card with blue sequins
