Okay, ready for some projects? I had a lot of fun playing with the products I chose to work with! I have three cards and two card sets to share.

ENCHANTED IRIS: 



My first card features a beautiful new floral set called Enchanted Iris. Altenew has the best floral images!

Thanks For Your Thoughtfulness

I have two patches of Siberian Iris in my yard, and I look forward to those blooms every year! For this card, I stamped one of the iris images repeatedly and randomly, then embossed in white, and watercolored the flowers against a gray background.

Thanks For Your Thoughtfulness

I used Zig watercolor markers. I confess to having not been a huge fan of the Zigs, but they do have some magnificent, intense hues that are perfect here! I may be coming around!


Thanks For Your Thoughtfulness

Stamps: Enchanted Iris
Dies: stitched rectangle
Ink: Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black, light aqua
Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock, stone card stock
Other: Zig Clean Color Brush Markers, paintbrush, clear embossing powder, ink blending tool, dew drops, silver metallic embroidery floss, foam adhesive




CRAFTY FRIENDS and PATTERN PLAY - DIAMOND: 



This next batch of cards were all created using Crafty Friends and Pattern Play - Diamond.

You're So Talented

Crafty Friends is a ginormous set filled with wonderful sentiments perfect for crafty types! Pattern Play - Diamond has one extra-large background stamp as well as two smaller diamond trios, one solid and one outline.

I started this card by stamping and heat embossing the large diamond pattern onto watercolor paper. I knew those embossed diamonds would be perfect for creating little puddles of varying saturation.

I don't know if this is going to make sense, but I really appreciate the extra-large size of the background image in Pattern Play - Diamond. With a typical card panel-sized background, if you want your card to be horizontal, you have to rotate the stamp and the diamonds will run horizontally too. This stamp is large enough that your diamonds can be oriented in either direction, on both vertical and horizontal panels, too. It's a little thing, but appreciated!

You're So Talented

I am totally dedicating this card to each and every person in the crafty community!


You're So Talented

I did this background with Zigs, too. I just kept building up the color until I had the depth and saturation I was hoping for.

StampsCrafty FriendsPattern Play - Diamond
Dies: stitched rectangles
Ink: Versamark
Paper: watercolor paper; stone and charcoal card stock
Other: white embossing powder, Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers, water brush, foam adhesive, teal sequins


Keep Calm and Make Cards

I wanted to do another, lighter blue-green background, this time with the beautiful Antique Silver Embossing Powder. Isn't that silver gorgeous?!

Keep Calm and Make Cards

See how the diamonds are still vertical on the horizontal card? That's thanks to the extra-large background image.

Keep Calm and Make Cards


StampsCrafty FriendsPattern Play Diamond
Dies: stitched rectangles
Ink: Versamark, teal
Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock, vellum
Other: Altenew Antique Silver Embossing Powder  white embossing powder, Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers, water brush, ink blending tool, foam adhesive


Crafty Friends Blue/Green/Yellow Card Set

The sentiments in Crafty Friends just keep going and going. I wanted to create a design that I could relatively quickly mass-produce. In addition to the large background in Pattern Play - Diamond, there are also two smaller images of three diamonds, one solid and one outline. These are perfect for building fun patterns, including argyle.


Crafty Friends Blue/Green/Yellow Card Set

Here I've overlapped the solid triangles and then stamped the outline in the spaces in between.


Crafty Friends Blue/Green/Yellow Card Set

Once I had my images positioned in my MISTI and the measurements figured out, it was a breeze to whip up a whole set. I typically lose interest quickly when trying to mass-produce, so to keep it interesting, each card is slightly different.

StampsCrafty FriendsPattern Play - Diamond
Dies: stitched rectangle
Ink: Versamark; aqua, green, yellow and navy ink
Paper: white and navy card stock
OtherAntique Silver Embossing Powder, sequins, silver thread


Crafty Friends Pink/Orange/Yellow Card Set

I made a second set, this time with a warmer, brighter color combo.


Crafty Friends Pink/Orange/Yellow Card Set

Between the two sets, I have eight cards, each with a different Crafty Friends sentiment.

StampsCrafty FriendsPattern Play - Diamond
Dies: stitched rectangle
Ink: Versamark; fuschia, orange, gold, and dark gray inks
Paper: white and charcoal card stock
OtherAntique Silver Embossing Powder, sequins, silver thread

You really have made me fall in love with the Diamond Pattern Play stamp set. I think I'm going to have to put that one on my "To Get" list!

Anonymous said...

Wow, you did a ton of cards! I love them all! Your Iris card is amazing! I love it! We had lots of flowers in our yard once. The wife of the couple who owned our house before us was very into flowers. We had a lot of them until the mutant ninja squirrels moved in and ruined them all. Now we have very few. We never had any Iris and I wish we could. When I win this stamp set, then I don't have to worry about the ninja squirrels tearing up the flowers. You're coloring is amazing! They look real! I love the water droplets on the card. I have some of those and I love how they look on cards.
I like the diamond pattern on your card. Some of those colors look like peacock colors a little bit. I like how you variegated the colors. I also like that crafty word set, which is another stamp set I would love to get.
I like how your last cards have the design on the bottom of the card. That is a cool look. I'm going to save this page so I can try that with some of my stamps. I always put the stamps in the middle of the page but I like your look too. Obviously, I couldn't use a huge stamp in the corner but I can use a med. sized stamp. Thanks for all the inspiration and for letting us have a chance to win something. I hope that I do.

Di said...

You are very creative. I don't know which card I like best! I'm leaning towards the second one. Or maybe the iris one. Or maybe.....

mtscrapgal said...

Thanks for giving us so many beautiful cards showcasing the new stamps and embossing powders. I'm still working with Zig markers too. It helps to use smooth watercolor paper. Love the card sets you made with the diamond stamp.

mandalj said...

Your irises are beautiful, and I absolutely love all the variations you've done with the Diamond stamps!
