I have two cards for your inspiration today. 

Card One: Missing You Flower Bud

IO Stamps Links:


How I made it:
  • On a bristol paper panel, I stamped the Budding Bloom image with VersaMark Clair Nocturne ink.  I hand-drew the stem longer.
  • I stamped the verse from the Warm Fuzzies Sentiments set.
  • I painted the image with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints.
  • I added some green distressing along the top and bottom of the panel with distress inks and an ink applicator brush. 
  • Some layering and black pearls finish the card front.
  • INSIDE:  I stamped the Hibiscus Bloom 1 and the In My Heart verse with the Clair Nocturne ink.

Card Two: Watercolor Flourish
IO Stamps/Dies Links:

How I made it:
  • I added another color in like fashion, then misted the stamp and the paper with water.
  • I repeated these steps for each color, creating a loose, watery look with the water spritz.
  • On a lilac card stock strip, I white embossed the verse from the Warm Fuzzies Sentiments set.  After attaching the panel to an A2 card front, I added a silk bow, and some sequins. 
  • INSIDE:  I stamped the Ornate Flourish stamp in white pigment ink.  Embossed the Blessings image in white on lilac cs and added it.

  1. Fabulous CAS card with the bud. I'm really loving the flourish you used on the second. I wasn't too sure about it at first glance, but it's on my wish list now.
