Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!!!

Welcome to this weeks Friday Funday! 

So I was still wanting to play with some foil but I had straightened up my desk, and over to the side was a piece of Grass Green Foil scrap. 

So... I just couldn't let it sit there and not be used!  ;)

Here are the items used in this weeks card project:

Gina K. Designs:

Stamp Sets - Bold and Blooming, and Sending Love

Pure Luxury Card Stock - White Layering & Heavy Base Weight, & Red Velvet 

Premium Dye Ink - Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Grass Green & Black Onyx

Foil-Mates - Stars and Stripes

Fancy Foil - Grass Green

Die Sets - Oval Large, Oval Small

Prismacolor Pencils - Canary Yellow 916, Crimson Red 924, Goldenrod 1034, Pumpkin Orange 1032, Moss Green 1097

So I started by stamping the flowers. I stamped all 3 sizes. One large and two small in Sweet Mango. Then stamped the middle size in Wild Dandelion. You can also see where I marked my stamp. I did that and marker the die so they are easy to line up!  You just have to stamp the image with the mark in a position you will remember. So I pointed the mark to the top of the page.  After stamping them I started to add the colored pencils. The large flower on the left was to close to the edge to die cut so I didn't use that one. 

I started with the Pumpkin Orange Pencil.

Just adding color to the base of the flower petals.

Then I added the other colors and just had fun coloring these in!

When I finished them all up I stamped the Leafs in Grass Green and added some Moss Green 

and cut them all out with the matching dies

Then I used the New Dies and cut the Over Large out in Red Velvet and the Oval Small out in white Layering Weight. I also used the largest heart and just cut it out of the center of the red velvet layer.  Stamped the Greeting in Black Onyx Ink. 

I attached the two ovals together and then made a little cut on the sides where I wanted the ribbon to go. You can see the slit in the picture below!  This will hold the twine in place nicely! 

I cut a piece of Red Velvet card stock to 4 1/8” X 5 3/8”  then a piece of white layering weight to 4” X 5 1/4”  Dry embossed the white layer. Then taped it down. I found a piece of foiled stripes left over from another project, so I added it to the layers (over to the left side).  

Here is that shiny Grass Green  scrap from a previous card! Look at that shine!   :)

Then added the oval panel that has the twine tied on it!  Arranged the flowers & leafs until I liked the look an glued some down and posed up 2 flowers. Also the heart has a small piece of 3D foam square behind it so it would stay in place! I added 3 enamel dots from my stash. (you can use Nuvo drops or bling of choice) 

Here is the card project all put together!  :) 

I just couldn't resist some more shine, even if it was a little left - over!

I hope you all get to get a little inky this weekend.

To you all - (((Hugs))),

Gorgeous card and I love the way you did the flowers with adding more color with the pencils. I know I have leftovers of foiling as well. I have put all into a special place so I can grab some every once in a while to add more shimmer to my cards. 

Leftovers are always good, especially when put to good use.  It is beautiful.

What a great card and thanks for the tips in creating it. Love the twine and the heart hanging off it.

Beautiful card, the little strips is just enough to make everything pop and what a great tip on the twine, thanks Karen!
