Kind Flowers in Blues

January 15, 2018

I made a few card sets to give as Christmas gifts this year, but I never got around to blogging them till now. Here is the blue set of cards I made.



Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these six cards by creating six card bases from some water color paper. Then I used my acrylic blocks to smoosh on some blue Distress inks. I let the ink sit for about five minutes before removing the block to get a more intense color.

Once the ink smooshing was dry, I stamped the image on to the cards. I used Versa Mark ink and Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy embossing powder.

Finally, I added the sub sentiment to the cards. I stamp the sentiment on a small strip of water color paper with a grey ink. Then, I adhered the strips with some foam tape.

The recipient love this card set for both its handmade qualities and the really beautiful sentiments.

Challenges Entered:

                Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Winter Blues


Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Kind Flowers

Embossing Powder: Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy Fine Detail

Ink: Versa Mark

Distress Inks in Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Mermaid Lagoon


Hope you enjoyed the cards!
