Floral cards with a message

Hallo allemaal! Ik hou ervan om korte teksten op mijn kaarten te stempelen en er zitten een paar hele mooie in de sets 'peony cluster' en 'surrounded in prayer'. Ik heb de stempelsets gebruikt in combinatie met de bloem en het blaadje uit de Be a Flamingo set, allemaal van Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.

Hello everyone! I love to use short messages on my cards so the Peony Cluster stamp set and the Surrounded in Prayer set had some beautiful stamps for me. I used the stamp sets in combination with the flower and leaves from the Be a Flamingo set.

Ik heb de afbeeldingen op wit papier gestempeld en ingekleurd met alcohol markers. Daarrna heb ik ze uitgeknipt en bijpassend papier gezocht met mooie bloemen.

I stamped the images on white paper and colored them with alcohol markers. After that I cut them out and searched for some matching floral patterned papers.

De teksten heb ik op wat rustiger papier gestempeld zodat ze nog steeds goed leesbaar zijn.

I stamped the messages on papers with a soft background color or pattern so the message would still be readable.

Als je niet weet wat voor kleuren je moet gebruiken om je plaatjes in te kleuren; kijk dan eens naar al het mooie papier dat er te vinden is. Vaak zitten daar al hele goede kleurcombinaties in die je kunt gebruiken!

When you're in doubt about the colors that you want to use for your images; take a look at all the beautiful patterned papers. You can get a lot of color inspiration from them!

I made two cards with the Hymn Word Art stamp set. These cards are pretty quick to make and the stamps are really the main focus of the cards.

I stamped the messages on blank paper and embossed them with embossing powder. For this first card I used white embossing powder and added Distress Oxide ink to add color to the background. I wanted to add a border with orange patterned paper around the stamped image but it turned out that I didn't have any orange patterned papers... So I made my own 'orange' paper with the Distress Oxide ink. I finished the card with a couple of pearl drops and enamel dots.

I used a dark sparkling embossing powder for the second card. I added a bit of embossing powder to the edge of the panel too. I used patterned paper with flowers and a couple of matching floral stickers to give the card a bit more interest. And of course a couple of enamel dots to finish the card.

I used the stamp set Hymn Word Art.

I made a card with Peony Clusters; the stamp set of this month. The big peony cluster is so beautiful that you can easily use it as the focal point of your card. You don't have to add a lot to make a beautiful card. For this card I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut out the panel. I added the cute 'with love' sentiment, a red ribbon and some sequins to finish the card.

It isn't a difficult card to make, but I made a video for it too. It just involves a lot of coloring ;). But I didn't use a lot of colors so it didn't take too long to color the peonies.

I made a card with the stamp set of the month 'Happy Day' and the stamp for a cause 'Surrounded in Prayer'. I stamped a background on my card with grey ink and stamps from Happy Day and a little text message from Surrounded in Prayer. After that I stamped a couple of the flowers on scrap paper and colored them with watercolor markers.

I stamped a message from Surrounded in Prayer on a die cut circle and added a little red border to the circle with my marker. After that I arranged the flowers around the circle and adhered everything on my card. I felt like something was missing so I added a couple of pieces of washi tape and sequins to finish the card.

Happy Day!

Hallo allemaal! Vandaag wil ik jullie dit kaartje laten zien dat ik gemaakt heb met de Happy Day stempelset van Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. Door de grote teksten en bloemen is hij ideaal om een kaart van één laag mee te maken.

Hello everyone! Today I want to show you a card I made with the Happy Day stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I think this is a great stamp set for one layer cards with the larger words and flowers that are in the stamp set.

happy day lucilight

Voor deze kaart heb ik de plaatjes en tekst direct op de kaart gestempeld. Hierna heb ik de bloemen en blaadjes ingekleurd met aquarelmarkers en een waterpenseel. Ik heb de achtergrond gevuld met wat verfspetters die ik met het penseel maakte. Om de kaart af te maken heb ik alleen nog wat sequins toegevoegd en dat was het.

For this card I stamped the images on cardstock with black ink. After that I colored the flowers and leaves with watercolor markers and a waterbrush. I added a couple of watercolor drops with the waterbrush to create a background with a bit more color. I used a couple of sequins to give the card a bit more sparkle and that's all for this card.

Deze kaart is vrij makkelijk te maken en ook perfect geschikt om met een stempel tool te maken waar je de stempels op een vaste positie kunt plakken en daardoor een aantal keer dezelfde kaart kunt stempelen. Hiermee maak je snel en eenvoudig een reeks kaarten.

This card is pretty quick to make and you could even add the stamps on a stamping tool and stamp a bunch of cards, color them and create a couple of cards really fast.
