Materials and Supplies

Before we dive in, let's gather our supplies. Here's what you'll need for this project:

Creating the Floral Elements

Stamping and Coloring

Start by stamping the large cabbage rose from the Lovely Bouquet Stamp Set in alcohol marker friendly ink. I love using the Ohuhu Honolulu Brush Markers for coloring; they provide such vibrant and rich colors. For this card, I colored some roses in a beautiful red-orange shade and others in a lovely coral shade. The leaves were colored in striking blue-green tones.

Pro Tip: When coloring with alcohol markers, use a light touch and build up the color gradually. This prevents bleeding and gives you better control over shading.

Cutting and Layering

Once you've colored your roses, it's time to get creative. Cut the large cabbage rose in half. This trick is fantastic for making the floral element appear larger and more dynamic on your card front. Additionally, stamp and color two extra roses and leaves to add more dimension to your design.

I remember the first time I tried this technique—it felt like a game-changer. Suddenly, my stamps had so much more versatility!

Creating the Background


Now, let's move on to the background. Using the Amanda 6 x 6 Stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs, I created an ink-blended background panel. I chose Rustic Wilderness and Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Inks for a rich, textured look that complements the vibrant florals beautifully.

Pro Tip: When ink blending, start off the edge of your paper and work in circular motions. This helps avoid harsh lines and gives a smoother blend.

Assembling the Card

Layering Elements

Adhere the halved cabbage rose onto your card front. Then, arrange the extra roses and leaves around it to create a lush, full appearance. This technique not only makes your card look more intricate but also helps you get more mileage out of your stamps.

For the sentiment, I masked off part of one of the phrases from the Lovely Bouquet Stamp Set before inking it up. This allows you to customize your sentiment to fit perfectly with your card's design. Masking sentiments is one of those tricks that adds so much versatility to your stamp sets!

Adding the Finishing Touches

Hot Foiling the Sentiment

To add that final touch of elegance, use the Hi Hot Foil Plate & Die (Sold Out) from Erin Lee Creative for the sentiment. The hot foiled "Hi" adds a beautiful shine and sophistication, making your card stand out.

Pro Tip: When hot foiling, make sure your machine is properly heated and your foil is smooth to avoid wrinkles and achieve a flawless finish.
