LET’S GET STARTED, SHALL WE…

DIRECT TO PAPER 1 PZ

Two of these featured cards are done the same way…

Cut out flourish die cuts out of cardstock.  Add repositionable glue to the back of each flourish die cut and let dry COMPLETELY:)

DSCN0176

Apply repositionable flourishes to front of card (you can tell we have used ours before:))

DSCN0178

Dab makeup sponge on the Brilliance orchid stamp pad and then gently rub randomly onto card.

Continue applying new colors to card working with lightest colors first.

Be sure to add enough color on and around the flourishes so that when you peel them up you will be able to see their shape.

DSCN0179

Ta-Da!  My favorite part…gently peel up your flourishes and set aside.

DSCN0180

Working quickly, apply ink to stamps starting with opera pink flowers and then adding brilliance lime and then moss green to stems and leaves.

DSCN0181

 Stamp flowers onto card and repeat one or two more times to add more flowers to card.

Add greeting stamp with black Stazon pad.

To finish mist entire card lightly with gold Luminarte spray.

DIRECT TO PAPER 2 PZ

This card is done the same way with two exceptions…

We used a small brush with stamp pads to add color to the flowers on the greeting.

This card was not misted with the gold spray…I think it needs some though don’t you?  Why not add a little shimmer:)

This is a fun example of how to use those pretty flourish die cuts that you used on other cards.

First add color with pads and make up sponges very LIGHTLY to the background of this card.

Adhere flourish to card.

Add color to Color Me Crazy florettes by dabbing stamp pads directly on florettes.  Again, remember to work light to dark so you don’t mess up your stamp pads.

Adhere florettes to card.

Finish card by stamping greeting with black Stazon pad.

Just add envelopes and ribbon and you are all done with your beautiful note card set!
