Sentiment With Flowers and Rubbernecker Sale

Rubbernecker June Summer Sale

Today I’m sharing a fairly clean and simple card with a framed sentiment with flowers and foliage. The brightly colored flowers and foliage pops against the black and white and draws the eye in to the sentiment.  I used the Crinkle Oval Frame to create a frame for the Thinking of You sentiment and cut out out the oval frame using the Nested Oval set.  The Mixable Flower Stack 5109D and Large Ivy were created to embellish the frame and sentiment.  I used the Vertical Stripe stamp to create the bold background.

Before I start my tutorial I want to let you know about Rubbernecker’s Summer Sale.  Prices are discounted in almost every category.  You will definitely want to check it out!

Create a classic card by framing the sentiment with flowers and foliage and layering it on a card base with a bold background.

The Striped Card Base

  • Cut a white A2 sized card base.
  • Secure a piece of white cardstock and the striped stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Nocturne ink to the stamp and stamp on the cardstock. Note:  I love using my MISTI to stamp.  It allows me to stamp more than once to make sure I get good coverage.
  • Apply clear embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Cut the striped piece to 5.25″ x 4.00″, apply strips of mounting tape and attach to the card base.

The Crinkle Frame and Sentiment

  • Secure a piece of white cardstock and the Crinkle Oval Frame in the MISTI.
  • Apply Nocturne ink and stamp.
  • Repeat the step with the sentiment stamp.
  • Apply clear embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Place the sentiment layer on the cutting platform and cover with a piece of waxed paper.
  • Line up the oval die over the Crinkle Oval Frame and run through the machine.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the oval layer and attach to the card base.

Frame a sentiment with flowers and highlight the layer by placing it on a card base with a bold background.

The Flowers and Ivy

  • Cut the flowers using bright pink cardstock and the ivy using bright green cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the round stylus.
  • Place the flowers face up and push down in the center of each layer using a small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the oval sentiment layer using glossy accents.
  • Finish the card by attaching the flowers to the sentiment layer using glossy accents.

 

Create a lovely card by framing the sentiment with flowers and placing it on a bold background.

Brayering Ink on Embossing Folders

I like to use the technique of brayering ink on embossing folders.  The result is a two toned embossed pattern that adds interest and dimension to the background layer of the card.  I love using pale colored ink for this technique and pairing it with flowers but it can work with any color and for any kind of project you want. For my card today I chose an elegant pattern to use with my framed floral arrangement. I used the Rubbernecker Mixed Flower Stack, Nested Scallop with Holes, Nested Rectangle, Leaf Group and Flower Buds. The embossing folder is a retired Lattice folder by Sizzix.

I love the technique of brayering ink on embossing folders, especially when using a folder with an elegant design pattern.

Brayering Ink on the Embossing Folder

  • Open the embossing folder and place it face down on your work table.
  • Apply ink to the brayer.
  • Brayer ink on the inside front of the folder.  Note:  I’ve included a couple pictures from my Belleek Inspired step by step tutorial.

1

2

  • Insert white cardstock in the folder, close and run it through your die cutting machine.
  • Note:  If you apply ink to the inside back of the folder your raised pattern will be colored and the background will be white.  Either way is very pretty.

I love the technique of brayering ink on embossing folders, especially when using a folder with an elegant design.

The Frame and Card Base

  • Cut the Nested Scallop with Holes die using white cardstock.
  • Place the inner rectangle scalloped layer on the cutting platform.
  • Line up the the Nested Rectangle die in the center of the scalloped layer and run through the machine to create the frame opening.
  • Place the out frame section face down on your work table.
  • Insert the inner scalloped frame layer back inside the outer frame and attach the two sections together using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
  • Trim the embossed layer and attach it to the back of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame and embossed layer and attach it to the A2 sized card base.

Color and Shape the Flowers

  • Cut both the large flower and flower buds using white cardstock.
  • Apply the soft pink ink to the flowers using a mini applicator.
  • Form the large flower sections using a large round stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flower sections together using mounting tape and glossy accents.  Note:  The two largest flower sections were attached with glossy accents.  The two smaller flower sections were attached using small pieces of mounting tape to create a bit of space between the sections.
  • The flower buds were formed using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.

I love the technique of brayering ink on embossing folders, especially when using a folder with an elegant pattern.

Arrange the Foliage and Flowers

  • Cut four sections of the leaf group using green cardstock.
  • Trim the ends off of three of the branches and attach them to the embossed layer using glossy accents.
  • Apply a good amount of glossy accents to the back of the large flower and attach it to the embossed layer.
  • Cu the fourth leaf section apart and tuck the smaller branch sections under the flower and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the arrangement by attaching flower buds to the foliage using glossy accents.

I love the technique of brayering ink on embossing folders, especially when using a folder with an intricate design pattern.

Have you tried the brayering ink on embossing folders technique?  You can brayer ink on any embossing folder.  You can see lots of examples in my Belleek Inspired category (a name we gave this technique for a Splitcoaststampers challenge several years ago). Thank you for coming by and I hope you have an enjoyable Saturday.

Card with Soft Colors

Today I’m sharing a pretty vases and flowers card with soft colors framed on an all white background for contrast. The decorative white frame layers add dimension and interest but still allow the colorful images to be the main focus of the card.  For my project I used the Rectangle Combo #2, Window With Pierce, Arch Trellis, Vases and Shelves, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers # 1, Flower Buds and Tiny Flower Buds.

A card with soft colors is so beautiful layered on an all white background. All the dies on this card were made by Rubbernecker.

The Window Frame

  • Use white cardstock to cut the rectangle frame, window frame and two trellises.
  • Fit the window frame inside the rectangle frame and attach them together using double stick tape. 
  • Note:  The window frame fits perfectly inside the rectangle frame but is just a tad too long on one end.  I secured it in place with tape and allowed the one end to fit in behind the frame. You can see that section on the top of the frame but I doubt you would have noticed it if I hadn’t mentioned it. 
  • Trim the arch top and bottom sections off of both of the arch trellises.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of one of the trellis sections, line it up to the second section and attach to create a continuous piece that will fit behind the tall window section on the frame.  I like to modify die cuts to create different things and stretch how I can use my dies.
  • Use double stick tape around the back of the large window to attach the trellis section to fill in the window.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window frame sections.
  • Attach the window frame to the A2 sized white card base.

A card with soft colors looks so pretty framed on an all white background.

The Flower Vases

  • Use pink, yellow, aqua and purple cardstock to cut out all the vases and flowers.  
  • Cut the foliage using green cardstock.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the foliage sections to the back of each frame.  I have lots of fun picking and choosing the different foliage pieces to work with the different shaped vases.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach all the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Use mounting tape to attach all the vases to the card base.  Note:  I played with the vases and laid them out on the window frame to get the best design before attaching. 

A card with soft colors looks so pretty with an all white background.

Did you enjoy seeing my card with soft colors and the modified die cut white layered framing.? I have made a few versions of this card using the vases and flowers and I love how pretty they look layered with the frames. The Window Frame and Flower Vases was made back in March with the same soft colors and images but used a different window frame.  Pinterest has lots of inspiration for cards with soft color combination .  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Happy Mother’s Day Card

My project today is a Happy Mother’s Day card with a beautiful flower and brightly colored foliage on a soft blue scalloped layer.  I used the Organic Shapable Poppy, Flower #5 (large leaves), Large Ivy, Small Flowers #3, Nested Rectangle Scallop and the sentiment from the Happy Mother’s Day set. 

Bright, colorful flowers and foliage are the perfect embellishment on a happy Mother's Day card. Come see how I made this using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Card Base and Sentiment Layer

  • Cut the A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Cut the sentiment layer using a large rectangle scalloped die. and white cardstock.
  • Apply masking tape around the border of the scalloped layer.
  • Apply a blue layer to the scalloped rectangle using a large blender brush and Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Stamp the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment on the scalloped layer using Nocturne ink.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach it to the card base.

The Flowers

  • Cut three sets of the Organic Shapable Poppy and one set of the Small Flowers #3 using Raspberry Fizz cardstock.
  • Place the poppy sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus.
  • Turn the sections face up, push down in the center with a small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the three poppy layers together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the small flower sections using green cardstock.
  • Form the small sections using a small round stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the sections to the center of the poppy using glossy accents.
  • Form the tiny pink flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Note:  Check out my paper shaping video tutorials if you would like to see how form my flowers.

Bright, colorful flowers and foliage are the perfect embellishment on a happy Mother's Day card. Click on the picture to see how I made this using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Large Leaves and Ivy

This is the first time I have used my new Color Fuse inks to watercolor since I got them.  I have been so inspired by Allison Arbour’s beautiful cards using the inks to watercolor die cut images.  I decided to see what I could do with them to create pretty foliage for my arrangement and I love how bright and vivid it turned out using three different greens from the Color Fuse Set #11.  Allison is one of the very talented members of the Rubbernecker design team.

  • Cut the large leaves and ivy using hot press watercolor paper.
  • Spritz a layer of water over the leaves.
  • Squish the lightest color green ink pad onto a palette, pick up the ink with a water brush and apply the ink to the leaves. Note:  I use one of my large acrylic blocks as a palette
  • Repeat the steps using the two darker green inks to create variegated, natural looking foliage.
  • Heat dry the leaves with your heat gun.
  • Place the leaves face up on the molding pad and form them using the leaf tool.

Arrange the Leaves and Flowers

  • Attach the large leaf section to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Apply a good amount of glossy accents to the back of the poppy and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck the ivy sections under the poppy and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching a few small flowers to the ivy using glossy accents.

Bright, colorful flowers and foliage are the perfect embellishment on a happy Mother's Day card. Click on the card to see how I made this using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Making this Happy Mother’s Day card and using the Color Fuse inks to watercolor. was lots of fun  I have to admit it’s been quite a while since I have water colored and I am a bit rusty. This color combination is one of my favorites and  I have used it quite a bit recently.  Check out my Missing You Card and Butterfly Greeting Card to see other examples.  I sure do appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day.

Feminine Greeting Cards for All Occasions

I love creating feminine greeting cards with floral themes and pretty color combinations.  For this project I created a park bench scene with a soft aqua sky background and pretty purple flowers growing on the vines.  I love how this color combination is accentuated with the white frame and bench.  This would be perfect for a any occasion.  I used the Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo #2, Tree Panel #1, Park Bench, Grass, Grass #2, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and Tiny Flower Buds.

Handmade Cards with Flowers for Mother’s Day

Handmade cards with flowers are so popular for Mother’s Day.  My mother was a florist and I learned floral design working with her in the flower shop. I know she would have loved seeing this colorful flower card and how I use floral design in my card making.  Mother has been gone for more than twenty years but she will be in my heart forever. 

For this card I used Rubbernecker’s Rectangle Combo #3, Circle Lattice, Organic Shapable Posy, Mixed Flower Stack, Mixable Flower Stack 5106, Mixable Flower Stack 5107, Mixable Flower Stack 5109, Organic Shapable Daisy (foliage) and Large Ivy.

Handmade cards with flowers are so popular for Mother's Day. Come see how I arranged this colorful mixed flower arrangement.

Card Base and Framed Lattice

  • Cut an A2 sized card base, rectangle frame and a rectangle layer using white cardstock. 
  • Line up the Circle Lattice die over the white rectangle on the cutting platform and run through the machine.
  • Move the Circle Lattice die down on the rectangle and line up with the first cut and run through a second time.
  • Repeat the above process a third time to fill in the whole rectangle with the lattice design cut.
  • Apply 1/8″ double stick tape tall the way around the back of the frame.
  • Trim the lattice layer and attach it to the back of the frame.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach to the card base.

The Handmade Flowers and Foliage

  • Cut the flowers using bright pink, purple. yellow and pink cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad. 
  • Attach the flowers together using glossy accents.  Make sure to offset each layer for a more natural looking flower.
  • Attach large white pearls to the flower centers using glossy accents.
  • Check out my paper flower shaping videos on my tutorial page if you would like to see how I shaped my flowers.
  • Cut ivy and foliage sections from the Organic Shapable Daisy using green cardstock.
  • Cut three sections of the flower buds using bright pink cardstock.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flower buds to the foliage stems.

Handmade cards with flowers are so popular for Mother's Day. Come over to see how I arranged this colorful mixed flower arrangement.

The Flower Arrangement

  • Attach the large foliage sections to the card base using glossy accents.  Note: I used five sections of the large foliage to create the base for the arrangement.
  • Attach the flowers to the card base using mounting tape. Note:  I used mounting tape  to pop the flowers up to be more even with the frame.
  • Tuck ivy sections under the flowers to fill in and soften the flower arrangement. 
  • Finish the arrangement by tucking the bright pink flower buds into the foliage and attach using glossy accents.
