Stamp Highlight |Daisy Blooms, Wild Florals and Botanical Blooms|

Hi, crafty friends!
This is Hussena here to share some inspiration using the stamps from the Mudra July Release. I had shared some cards earlier also using some of the July Release stamp sets and you can check my post HERE. Today I'll be sharing a card + few tags so let's have a look at what I made :

For my first card, I have used 3 sets from Mudra - Daisy Blooms, Brushed Sentiments & Botanical Blooms. You can mix and match these sets easily and they are extremely versatile to work with!

Here's how I made it :

  • I took an A2 white card base and die-cut a rectangle frame to fit my card front using some Gold Glitter paper. I kept aside the frame and did not adhere it right now.
  • I made some stripes on my card front using a light blue shade of Distress ink. These were hand painted using a flat brush.
  • Now, for the main focal of my card. I first stamped the sentiment for my card - I decided to go with "Happy birthday". It was stamped using some Versafine Onyx Black ink and is from the Mudra- Brushed Sentiments set. Since the font is pretty bold ad it is in a brush lettered font, it creates a really striking focal. 
  • I, then stamped and fussy-cut some flowers & leaves using the Mudra Daisy Blooms and Botanical Blooms set.
  • Adhered them using some foam tape and added the glitter frame to my card base that I had die-cut earlier.
  • Finally added some sequins to finish off the card.

The Brushed Sentiment

 On to my next project, I created some pretty little tags using stamps from the Botanical Blooms, Wild Florals & On your Special day stamp sets. These make for a really good gift for family & friends. A look at the tags :

( L -R )
  • For the blue tag, I water-colored the background using Distress inks & I stamped the flower & the foliage by doing a little bit of masking. 
  • To create a bit of dimension, I again stamped, watercolored & fussy-cut the flower before foam mounting it and adhering it to the tag base. Stamped the sentiment from the Mini Bunch set and added some splatters of gold mist.

  • For the pink tag, I stamped the flowers & leaves and fussy cut them before foam mounting it on the tag base.
  • I decided to stamp the sentiment on the left side at an angle to create some interest.
  • Finished it off by doing some black ink splatters.

( L - R )
  • I stamped the flower bouquet from the On your Special Day set and water colored it using Distress inks before fussy-cutting it & adding foam tape.
  • For the base of my tag, I die-cut the stitched pattern at an angle and water-colored the bottom half of the tag using Cracked Pistachio Distress ink. 
  • I then stamped the sentiment by masking and using two different fonts for it. The 'Special' is from the  On your Special Day set and the 'Wishes' is from the 'Mini Bunch' set.
  • For the pink tag, I water-colored the background using Distress inks & I stamped the flower & the foliage by doing a little bit of masking. 
  • I kept it simple by just doing some stamping & watercoloring. Finished it off by stamping the sentiment from the Mini Bunch set.
