Hi Friends! This week for Tammy Tutterow's Five for Friday project, I created a beautiful card using the Flower Swag 3 stamp set. It's a lovely collection of flowers and so fun to use on a card that you want to send someone just to say hello or show cheerful support. Check out Tammy's blog this Friday, February 17 (by clicking on the icon above) to see all the design team's amazing projects to get some inspiration for your weekend crafting. Below, I created a tutorial on how I put this card together along with all the Copic marker colors in case you're interested. Enjoy!
I decide to frame the flower swag with the Tammy Tutterow Simple Line Border stamp so I stamp that out on my card panel using the Misti tool.
I stamp the flower swag in the center of the frame in landscape position and begin coloring the flowers. Here I use Copic markers V01, V04 and V09 to color the first set of flowers.
I color the next set of flowers using Copic markers B000, B00, B01 and B02.
I chose RV11, RV13 and RV17 to color the next set of flowers.
I decide to color the leaves next and color them using Copic markers G00, G02, G05 and G07.
Lastly, I use Copic markers Y04 and Y15 to color the smallest flowers.
I shade the background behind the flowers with Copic markers B000 and the Colorless Blender 0. I then add the flower centers by squeezing on a pearl size drop of glossy accents to the center of each flower and immediately sprinkle on Prima Black Micro Beads. I set that aside to completely dry before moving on to the next step.
While the flower centers are drying, I create another panel for the card that will lie beneath the flower swag panel. For this panel, I use the Tammy Tutterow Blistered embossing folder to create gorgeous texture and ink the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I check on the flower center and see that they are completely dry. Here is a close up. I like the texture and dimension this adds to the card.
Next, I tear the edges around the frame and go over them with a Prima Distressing tool. I then ink the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
Here is a close up where you can see the distress and inked edges and the flowers centers.
Here again is my finished card. I adhere the embossed panel to another panel cut 1/4" larger from Bazzill Jelly Bean card stock. I then adhere the flower swag panel onto the embossed panel with 3d foam tape for more dimension. I add the Simon Says Stamp Big Hugs wafer die sentiment cut from Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock and a shabby bow I made from crinkle ribbon that I colored with Wilted Violet Distress Spray and water. If you're interested in seeing how I tie my shabby bows you can find a tutorial here.
