Colorful Blooms ♥

     Good morning my dearest friends!! Pon Malar here, back again; this time with 3 floral cards made using the May release of Mudra stamps. I must say I'm totally head over heels with this months' release. Such a fun & interesting collection.
     And for the added fun, Mudra Stamps are now available at the following outlets.

     Without further ado, let's get back to my cards.

Card: 1
     Brushed Flowers ~ Oh wait, these can be customized!!
     Yep I made this entire design using a single stamp. Isn't that fun :)

  • I took the tiny brush stroke stamp & used it with yellow, orange & green pigment inks. Stamped repeatedly creating flowers & leaves. 
  • Your very own customized flowers are ready. 
  • Then added few dots around the flowers using Uniball Posca marker.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment in black.
  • Few rhinestones to finish my card. 

Stamping tip: Make the most use of your stamp sets by your creative thinking . Power up  your imagination & share more of your innovative cards here at our FB page.

Card: 2
Mixed media Blooms

  • I used the flowers from linen bloom stamp set& stamped them using black archival ink. 
  • Then stamped the solid coloring using red, orange & yellow pigment inks. You can use a stamping tool for your convenience; for layering the stamps.
  • Did the same with the leaves & for the stems I drew it using Uniball Posca marker & outlined it in black.
  • Fussy cut the flowers, leaves & the stems.
  • Took a pattern paper in light pink, applied brick red & vintage photo DI around the edges & distressed the margins to give an old crumbling look. 
  • Then added those flowers, leaves & the stems in layers using tacky tape & foam tape. 
  • Stamped the sentiment in black & added it in the form of a banner. 
  • Adhered everything down on a white card stock, whose edges were smeared with vintage photo DI & finally stuck it on the main card front.

Card: 3
Floral bunch in red

  • Took a red card stock & stamped the flowers along the right margin.
  • Then fussy cut the flowers & saved them for later.
  • Stuck the red card stock to my card front.
  • Using the negative space from the red panel as a guide, I stamped the flowers again using black archival ink.
  • Then stamped the solid coloring for the flowers using red & yellow pigment inks.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment in white, few dots & pearls to finish the look.
  • As a final touch I added a fussy cut flower to the red panel with foam tape. 
Stamp Sets used: Brushed & Linen Blooms
