Succulents, Flowers and Leaves...

Saturday, June 04, 2016

Happy Saturday, Kraftie Friends!

A few cards to share...and enter in a few challenges.
I embossed a couple of cream cardstock panels, using my Cuttlebug, and die cut some leaves.
I also die cut the leaves from green cardstock.

For the first card...I adhered the embossed panel on kraft card base, inlaid the green die cuts (Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies, Foliage) and added some ink splatters (All-Purpose Ink/Tsukineko). I stamped sentiment on kraft banner and adhered on card.
I stamped vase and succulent (Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Succulents), cut them out and colored the plant with ShinHan Touch Twin marker.
I adhered lace on card using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, then adhered the vase and plant with foam tape.

Second card...I adhered the embossed/die cut panel on green card base. I stamped sentiment (Fiskar), fussy cut it and adhered on card with foam tape.
I stamped the big plant pot, masked it and stamped the second plant pot (Altenew). I colored the image with Copic Marker E33 Sand and ShinHan markers, cut it out and adhered on card with foam tape. I also added sequins for some shine!

And this is what I made with the die cut leaves from the embossed panels:

I adhered a kraft panel on green card base. I adhered the embossed and green die cuts on the kraft panel. I stamped sentiment (Altenew) with Tsukineko VersaMark, heat embossed it in Zing Neon Yellow and adhered the strip on card.
I stamped flowers (Altenew) on white cardstock, fussy cut them, colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Marker and arranged them on card. After I adhered them, I applied Ranger Liquid Pearls Bisque in the flowers' centers and added the sequins.

The white & green is such a refreshing color combo just now with all the heat everywhere. Splendid use of the leaves in #3, with that gorgeous Altenew floral set, again, beautiful coloring, on the kraft background. Three simply lovely cards...TFS
